FTP Plugin

FTP & SFTP connections within Servoy.


The FTP Plugin introduces much of the basic so called File Transfer Protocol functionality into Servoy like:

  • list
  • put
  • get
  • etc.

FTP transmissions can be non-secure as well as secure .

Supported transmission methods are:

  • FTP
  • FTPS
  • SFTP


Every client that needs a (secure SSH) connection to an FTP server to upload and download files to/form that FTP server will benefit.

We published our API Specifications for the FTP Plug-in as a future and current reference.

After downloading the FTP Plug-in using our Components Manager a sample solution {servoy_root}/solutions/it2be-examples/it2be-ftp.servoy is installed.
You can import the sample solution into Servoy Developer and you will have some (basic) code examples of how to use the FTP Plug-in.

We have made the source of the FTP Plug-in available on ServoForge .
You can download the source here .
Everybody is free to check the source out, use it and change it as long as you give us credit and leave all copyright notices intact including those of third parties.
