FTP connection failed in background


Hi Folks,

I'm connecting from SAP system to a FTP server using the FTP program. When I'm connecting to the FTP server through the RFC destination SAPFTP its working fine i can connect to the server however I have to run the program in the background mode so I cannot use the SAPFTP rfc destination as it can run only on the foreground so in my case I'm using the RFC destination SAPFTPA as this is the RFC destination which can be used in the background mode.

The problem arises here when I'm using SAPFTPA in place of SAPFTP as I have to run the program in background. When I'm using the RFC dest SAPFTPA I'm getting an error saying "Attemp To Set Up Connection To Failed" however the connection is successful when the RFC dest SAPFTP is used.

Please provide your valuable inputs.
