can PI listen to message on FTP server?


Dear experts,

We have an external system that places messages on our FTP server. Now those messages need to be processed within 5-10 seconds. Defining a job in R3 that does that will not work because the time interval of a few seconds is too difficult to handle for a job.

Now my question: Can I have PI 7.1 check for messages on that FTP server? And, yes I know I could do it with an FTP receiver communication channel and R3 would be the receiving system.

But is there another possibility besides an FTP receiver?

Thank you for any ideas!

Best regards,
