FTPS(FTP Using SSL/TLS) for control and data connection

Hi Gurus,

Im doing File to File Interface. Im using FTP for File transfer. Its working fine with 'None' connection security.

If i choose the connection security as 'FTPS(FTP Using SSL/TLS) for control and data connection' and set the default command order its giving error as

"Error occurred while connecting to the FTP server "": Peer certificate rejected by ChainVerifier"

I gone through some of threads in sdn. Everything says that we need FTP server certificate in the keystore of Visual Administrator. I need to know how to check whether that certificate exist in the J2EE Engine. If the certificate not exist i need to ask my client to get the certificate. Can anyone provide What sort of certificate i ask my client to get.

MeanWhile can i get any test certificate to check the secured connection.

    Hi Rama,

    Yes ,you can create a self certificate but in this case you must install it in TrustedCA, the root Certificate which you sign your certificate.

    The FTP is a standalone server and the certificate must to be installed in FTP server.

    In File adapter, select the FTPS option to communicate to FTP server through SSL.

    The value for "Connection Security" is FTPS (FTP using SSL/TSL) for control and data connection & "Command order" is USER,AUTH TLS, PASS, PBSZ, PROT.

    These parameters depends of FTP server in use.

    Also SAP Help doc:

    Hope this helps.

    Yes you need to get the FTP server certificates and need to install them in the Key store using Visual Admin

    You need to ask your FTP server admin regarding the public key certifiacte with all CA certificates (certified authority)

    then you need to check the ports through which FTPS can be done (normally will be 990) and one more important tthing is you need to provide the details of FTP server as appears in the certificate provided...

    if certificate is already installed then Check Common Name i.e server name appers in the Certificate and need to provide the same in the CC channel of FTP receiver adapter
