Until recently I used the FTP Connection (Legacy) node together with the Download (Legacy) node for downloading files through FTP. Since these nodes are outdated I wanted to give it a try with the FTP Connector and File transfer nodes. However I cannot get the File Transfer node to work (I have added the Source File System Connection port to hook it up to the FTP Connector node).
The FTP Connector nodes seems to work fine as I get the proper connection. How should I then configure the File Transfer node in order to download the files I want? Source is set to FTP but the File Browse button does not show any path other than /
Accessing and browsing through the ftp folders and files with the legacy nodes works fine.
Apologies about the late response here. Would you mind sending a screen shot of the configurations of both “new” nodes you are using? I am curious if we are missing anything that describes where the path’s are pointing. I will also do some testing on my end to try and figure out why you are not able to browse with the File Transfer Node, and verify if that is the correct node to be using since the update.
So, I am back here with a new problem. It seems that the ‘Transfer Files’ node now no longer takes URIs as variables but straight Paths instead, so I should be able to bypass the Path to String/String to URI nodes:
But now the loop stalls when trying to read the first file with
ERROR File Reader 0:930 Execute failed: The data row has too many data elements.
The variable output from the Table Row to Variable Loop Start reads:
