FTP adapter overview

Use the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Adapter to transport data. When source data arrives at its target, it often must be transformed into a different format for a receiving application to use it successfully.

If you have the Command Server, Launcher, or Software Development Kit on one platform, you can use the FTP adapter to retrieve or send data to another platform.

The adapter can connect to any FTP server that complies with RFC 959. To take full advantage of the adapter's capabilities, the server should conform to RFC 1123. Those servers that are noncompliant might generate errors in the adapter.
