Hi All,

I am using apache commons net 2.2's API to create a connection to a secured FTP server and file transfer to and from the FTP server. I am using FTPSClient to achieve this task. IBM JRE - 6

I tried connecting to the FTP server in DOS promt using "sftp username@servername", it succeeded, I was able to download and upload files but the same is not working when I tried with the FTPSClient API.

Below is the code

FTPSClient ftpClient = new FTPSClient();
ftpClient.setDefaultTimeout(100000);
ftpClient.connect("servername"); // It fails here

......



I don't know for what reason this connection is timed out. Can someone please let me know what is the reason for this exception. I tried increasing the timeout, it did not help.

Thanks much
Divakar

FTPS is not the same as SFTP. You're using two different protocols.
