AFU to an FTP server
This procedure assumes you have completed the steps in Enable and set timing for AFU and wish to continue with configuration of upload to an FTP Server.
When using an FTP server to download a file, it is possible to start the download while that file is still in the process of being recorded. This results in an incomplete file. To avoid this, check the status of the file in the Admin panel before beginning the download process.
To configure upload to an FTP server:
- Select FTP Client from the protocol drop down list in the Automatic File Upload configuration page; the lower half of the page reflects the selection.
Specify the target Server address. If your
systemis configured with DHCP or has a valid DNS configuration (see Configure DHCP), you can use the server’s fully qualified domain name instead of the IP address.
Specify the Server Port used for the target FTP server. The standard port is 21.
Enter the FTP account username in the Login field.
Enter the FTP account password in the Password field; the characters are masked with dots.
Select Use temp file to name files with a temporary filename extension (.part) on the server until upload is complete.
Click Apply; if there are any problems the system notifies you with a message: One or more parameter values are not valid and those were not applied!
The following table describes the options applicable to configuring upload to an FTP server.
