Hello Henrik,
Can I create a trigger that can keep a watch on a folder in ftp. I tried doing it but it fails and says invalid directory whereas if I pull the file it works.
Can you provide your expertise on this please.

Thanks and regards,
Susheel

Hello Henrik,
I am sorry to confuse you. Actually the other was for Unix system, this is for windows system FTP server. The Unix system keeps failing so have been asked to try on Windows. Please help me.

Thanks and regards,
Susheel

Is it still a network drive? If yes, the Credential is the problem. Use a UNC path (and not network drive letter).

Does not look like a local ip to me? It must be an IP on the same network.

Hi Henrik,
When we access the ftp we access as follows:

ftp://201.36.16.26/sirval/
Provide the user name and password. Then we can see the folder sirval. So how can I implement the same in VisualCron?

Thanks and regards,
Susheel

The file trigger is for local network only. FTP is another protocol than the Windows protocol.

We have no "FTP Trigger". What you can do is to download (in an interval) the folder locally and watch a Trigger locally.
