Access to the local file system is not Allowed


I m trying to move the file from an SFTP folder to the local server where KNIME server is installed, if I run the job from the executor i don’t have any issue but if I execute from the server I got the error “Access to the local file system is not Allowed” that is quite strange since the folder is in the same machine where is running the server.

Any Idea how to solve it ?
