Issue with FTP Connector

I’m working on a workflow that involves accessing a FTP server. Whenever I try to connect, I get the following error messages:
2021-11-30 15:10:55,283 : ERROR : KNIME-Worker-5-FTP Connector 0:12 : : ClientPool : FTP Connector : 0:12 : Failed to initialize FTP client pool Could not parse response code.
Server Reply: SSH-2.0-null
Other programs to access FTP servers work fine. What could the issue be?

Thank you for your help!

Hi @Knime_Flink01 and welcome to the forum.

Can I ask what version of KNIME you are using? One of the potential causes of this problem was fixed in KNIME 4.3.2, as discussed in this thread:


Hi Scott,
thanks for the reply. I’m using KNIME 4.4.2 so it should be the latest version available, right?

Hi Scott, the issue solved itself. I was told it’s an SFTP server so I was able to connect with the SSH Connector node. Thanks!
