FTP - Receiver Comm channel error

Scenario: Send a file to a 3rd party via FTP adapter

Error: MONI is OK but comm channel monitor is in error state and error is displayed as:

An error occurred while connecting to the FTP server 'xxx.xx.xx.xxx:21'. The FTP server returned the following error message: 'com.sap.aii.adapter.file.ftp.FTPEx: 550 Permission denied on server. You are restricted to your account.'. For details, contact your FTP server vendor.

Things checked:

1> Our Firewall is configured to send the file from our system to 3rd party.

2> I could logon to 3rd party FTP server from web browser.

FYI, 3rd party FTP server is hosted on Yahoo.

Any ideas, why I am not able to FTP the file to 3rd party system?

Thanks

Bhaven

    Hi,

    1) Check whether Space is sufficient ( Delet the Existing files in and check it out )

    2) Whether the Directory where the Files are send has the 777 Right

    Hi Bhaven,

    Do you have write permissions to that FTP location?

    Did you try creating a dummy file, to see if you have permissions to create a file in that location?

    Bhaven:

    I guess, this is because the SAP XI system does not have permissions to read/write to the FTP server. Thats you are not able to write file to the FTP server but you are able to login to FTP server through FTP Client. Ask your SAP XI Admin to put/read file through console command from XI server. If it works then you should be able to put via File adapter too..I had the same situation before and it worked for me

    It does not mean that XI will be able to access the FTP server.

    You have to grant access for Adapter Engine user which is used for FTP communication.
