Hi Jeremy! Please take a look at this article for setting up a FTP node in IPA: http://www.nogalis.com/2017/08/17/ip-designer-series-ftp-node/

Are you using IPA or are you still on Process Flow? If you are using IPA, and it is installed on your Landmark server, you might not need FTP. You might be able to just use a file access node to save directly on the Landmark server.

 Read more...If you do still need to set up an FTP node using IPA, setting up an FTP connection to Landmark should work the same as any other FTP server. You just need to make sure that an FTP site is configured on your Landmark server, and you will need to create a configuration set that accesses that FTP site. In your IPA configuration sets, you will configure the File Transfer tab. Keep in mind that you can only have ONE FTP site per File Transfer tab, so if you need to connect to multiple FTP sites, you will need multiple configuration sets.

If you are still using Process Flow, there isn't an FTP node. What I've seen in the past is that folks will use the System Command node to run an FTP command. You'd still need an FTP site configured on your Landmark server.

I hope this helps. Please respond to the thread if you have any questions! Show less...
