FTP Site Upload / Download files


I would like to set up a connection to a secure FTP site allowing me to schedule upload and download of files.  I am assuming I would need to create a text input file and configure the download connector.

Hello, this is the correct method. The Text Input Tool is a great way to pass a URL to the Download Tool.  Once that is set up, you can update the security information fields within the Download Tool to complete the process.

The Help file on the Download Tool goes into more detail, but as always feel free to email if you have any questions on a specific module you're working on.
