    Hi

    If you want to make your local desk top as FTP folder.

    First of all you need to install the FTP server in your system and then you can shre your desktop folder or any folder as home directory for the FTP server.

    Just download FileZilla_Server_0_9_8a.exe.

    Click following link it describe how to install FTP server.

    http://www.hostmysite.com/support/dedicated/general/filezilla/

    and the following blog will help to make your directory as a FTP root directory.

    Hi Priya,

    If you are pointing to local desktop you can achive that with File System NFS.

    If you point it as the FTP only ,then FTP connections has to be maintained,

    But there is no point in maintaining FTP for local sys.

    Ramesh.

    hi

    If The sender communication channel has to pick the file from my local desk top, then you have to spicify the tranfer protocol as NFS(network file shade) not FTP.

    Note: reward points if solution found helpfull

    Hi,

    If you are doing File to File Scenario in a local disk configure the sender communication channel as NFS.

    If you want it as FTP then FTP should be configured.

    But while doing File to File in Local system its better to do in NFS.

    Please Check the link Below

    Reward Points if usefull

    Hi Priya,

    Once you select adapter type as file you will automatically get NFS, below that there is an option Soucre directory give your local desktop name.

    The difference between NFS & FTP

    NFS : when we required to pick the files from local machines..

    FTP : when we required to pick the data from the FTP server which is outside of the firewall..

    Thanks
