Hi Omar,

1) Is your File Adapter Communication channel configuration is correct ? Check for IP address, User ID , Password.

2) Also check FTP server is accessible from XI system.

3) Also you can check the log from Visual admin

try this,

1. see if you have given all rights for the FTP to be accessed .. read, write etc.

2. Verify the user and password (at times an anonymous user might be the problem)

3. Chk from you network if the FTP is reachable.
