A few months ago I was able to logon directly to SAPSERV4 by using: ftp://ftp:ftp .79.199.2/ from MS IE, but now
this connection is not available. I try to connect another site SAPSERV3 by ftp://ftp:ftp .204.2.5/, but I receive the message: 220-aftpd: Use of this system is restricted in accordance to local security policies 220-aftpd: and practices. Unauthorized use of this system is subject to legal 220-aftpd: prosecution. Management reserves the right to monitor traffic through this 220-aftpd: gateway in order to better safeguard the assets of this company. 220 aftpd: Check Point FireWall-1 Secure FTP server running on gatekeeper User (22.214.171.124:(none)): ftp 331-aftpd: User ftp not found 421 aftpd: aborted Could you please comment this case? Thanks in advance.
Check that your SAProuter has a connection to the SAPServX server. The best thing to do is to go to the server where the SAProuter service is running and then try to establish an FTP session from there. Try "pinging" the IP address (126.96.36.199) and see if you get a reply.
This problem could be due to many reasons.
Check that the SAProuter service starts fine.
Check the routing table at the OS level (route print).
Check the permissions table file for SAProuter (routtab.txt).
The problem can very well be that your PC (client) does not have permissions to connect to the SAP FTP server. If that's the case then contact your network or Basis administrator.
