Transfer files using FTP from Linux to Windows Server

Hi everybody,

We need to transfer some files from SAP application server to another server using FTP. SAP application server operating system is Linux and the other server uses windows server as operating system. This process should be executed in background.

The functions provided by SAP to transfer files FTP, don’t support binary to ascii or text mode conversion and viceversa. We did a lot of research and test with the function modules provided by SAP that use FTP and none of them have that option.

The function modules that we check are

FTP_CLIENT_TO_R3

FTP_CONNECT

FTP_COPY

FTP_DISCONNECT

FTP_R3_TO_CLIENT

FTP_R3_TO_SERVER

FTP_SERVER_TO_R3

And none of them can do that conversion. Is it possible to do that with any module function or method provided by SAP?

Thanks in advance

Edgar

    Hi Edgar,

    What FTP service are you using on the Windows server? Transfer modes (Binary, ASCII) are normally defined in the FTP server.
