FTP settings tab (Source Configuration)

Use this tab to configure an FTP source.

Documents received by this source will be routed to Output Manager. You can access this tab when you create or configure an FTP source.

FTP server — Specifies the FTP server, which can be an FTP or IP address.

Port — Specifies the host's port number. The port number must be from 1 through 65536. The default value is 21.

Use passive mode — Determines if the host mode will be passive or active. Selecting the check box selects passive mode, where the client creates a session to receive data. Clearing the check box will specify active mode, where the host creates a separate or new session to transfer data in response to a request from the client.

User name — Specifies the user name that will be used when logging on to the server. If the server does not require a user name, you can leave this box blank.

Password/Confirm Password — Specifies the user password that will be used when logging on to the server. If the server does not require a password, you can leave these boxes blank.

FTP folder — Specifies the location on the host from which the files will be retrieved when receiving files. You must type the entire path of the folder or the path relative to the FTP user home directory (for example, if your home directory is at \FTP\UserName, you can specify either \FTP\UserName\MySourceFiles or \MySourceFiles).

Scan subfolders — Determines if you want to scan any subfolders of the specified FTP folder.

Remove subfolders — Determines if you want to delete the subfolders of the FTP folder, after the files are transferred into Output Manager.

Interval — Specifies the time interval for checking the host for documents. The default value is 60 seconds.

Temp folder — Specifies the location files are transferred into during the FTP session. When the session is complete they are put in the file store.
