    SAPFTP runs on the client (local PC), and SAPFTPA runs on the application server.

    If you are connecting from your SAP application server to another remote host, then you use SAPFTPA.

    If you are connecting from your PC to the remote host, use SAPFTP.

    Please confirm about it.

    These are standared FTP programs which allows you to FTP from within SAP.

    The SAPFTP.EXE should be pre-installed in the users local harddisk before you can used this functions.

    Do a check first by executing program RSFTP005. It will tell you whether it can detect the SAPFTP.EXE program.

    RSFTP001 - SAPFTP version

    RSFTP002 - Execute FTP Command

    RSFTP003 - Test

    RSFTP004 - FTP copy

    RSFTP005 - SAPFTP check

    RSFTP006 - FTP command list
