XI FTP Adapter with non standard FTP server

I have a problem when I am trying to use the FTP adapter to talk to a non standard FTP server. The FTP adapter logs in OK, and then seems to be doing a "pwd", and cannot understand the response from the FTP server. Does anyone know if there is anyway to control tell the FTP adapter to not to a PWD? I simply want it to transfer the file using a "put" command - I don't care what directory it is in when it does it.

If I could get my hands on the source code for a FTP adapter, I would be able to modify it to support the "non" standard FTP server. Not sure that SAP release this though ...

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Regards,

Jason Currey

    Jason,

    There is no way you can control behaviour of the FTP adapter. The fixed series of commands issued are as you pointed,probably hard coded in the code for adapter.At least from communication channel configuration , you can not change that.

    If your landscape / policies prevent you from changing the FTP server , then you should use proxies (ABAP / Java) instead file adapter and write your own custom code to achieve this.

    Hi Jason,

    In your ftp adapter , are you enabling the anonymous login option ? In integration directory , you should do this in your adapter. If you have this, there is no need to specify the user name or password for the ftp server. Only the server name and port will do .

    Let me know.

    Just an update on where I got to - I have developed an ABAP proxy to perform the FTP to the custom "non standard" ftp server.
