To connect to FTP server the following parameters can be specified:
"Host address*" - enter the address of the remote computer as "ftp.myserver.com" or it's IP address, for example 192.168.0.100 into this field.
"Host port" - enter the port number of the remote computer. By default the port number is 21.
"User name*" and "Password*" - enter the name and the password required to access the remote computer into this fields.
"Proxy" - if you access the Internet over a company network (or Intranet), you may need to specify a firewall (proxy) server in this field (if no proxy is used, leave this field blank). There are lots of firewalls types and File Replication Monitor supports most of them. The type of firewall can be selected in a Proxy type list.
The following command sequences are supported:
(1) USER Username -> PASS Password
(2) USER ProxyUserName -> PASS ProxyPassword -> SITE FTPServer -> USER UserName -> PASS Password
(3) USER ProxyUserName -> PASS ProxyPassword -> USER UserName@FTPServer -> PASS Password
(4) USER ProxyUserName -> PASS ProxyPassword -> USER UserName -> PASS Password
(5) OPEN FTPserver -> USER UserName -> PASS Password
(6) USER UserName@FTPServer -> PASS Password
(7) USER ProxyUserName@FTPServer -> PASS ProxyPassword -> USER UserName -> PASS Password
(8) USER UserName@FTPServer ProxyUserName -> PASS Password
(9) USER UserName@ProxyUserName@FTPServer -> PASS Password@ProxyPassword
Please, refer to your firewall server documentation to select the appropriate Proxy type.
"Security mode" - see Secure protocol extension.
"Security profile" - when FTP server uses private and public keys as an additional level of security select a profile describing the keys for the current server. The certificate manager can be accessed by pressing the "Security Profiles" tab.
"Use passive mode" - each file transfer (upload or download) needs an additional connection for the data stream. In active mode the server establishes this connection. In passive mode, however, the client establishes the connection. This may be necessary through some firewalls, which do not allow connections from outside.
"FTP server type" specifies a type of the FTP server File Replication Monitor connects to. Type of the most FTP servers are determined automatically. However if there are problems during the connect to a server specify the server type manually from UNIX/LINUX, VMS, TFTP.
"Transfer type" - the mode using for transferring files:
"Auto" - all files are transferred in binary mode. If a file matches with a sample listed in a list at the Network settings page the mode is will be transferred in ASCII.
"Binary" - used for transferring any file except text files.
"ASCII" - used for text files transferring only.
"IPv6 mode" - use advantages of the IPv6 protocol if a remote FTP server supports it.
"Timezone shift, min." - if the FTP server is located in a different timezone then enter the number of minutes difference from the computer where File Replication Monitor works, e.g. +60 (meaning 60 minutes ahead), -60 (meaning 60 minutes behind). Generally it is not necessary to enter a value, but in case the FTP server is incorrectly changing the date and times of files then it can be corrected here.
"Translate names" (also see Network settings) -
the file naming in UNIX/LINUX frequently contains non standard Windows filename characters such as > , < , : , etc. Such files can not be saved on a Windows based computers. You can specify a replacement for this character. For example, a file with the name <File.txt> will have name %3cFile.txt%3e.
"Timeout" - the interval in seconds File Replication Monitor waits the end of FTP command. After that the error message is generated. If timeout is not specified it equals to the value from Network settings.
"Account name" - account name, which will be displayed in the list (below "Account Name").
"Notes" - any notes or comments concerning current account.
Fields marked with * [asterix] symbol must be filled.
