I am trying to download a file from a vendor FTP using native FTP job and getting the following error:
501 PORT IP is not same as ***.xx.***.250.
Download failed: "PORT is unsuccessful"
The "PORT" command is part of the Active FTP mode connection and it requires the FTP Client (CA WA System Agent / FTP job) to share its IP Address to the external FTP Server. It is probably that the CA WA Agent is sharing its local address (intranet) with the FTP server, but connects using its external IP address (***.xx.***.250) and FTP server does not like the mismatch (external vs local).
To enable Passive FTP connection, update the following System Agent parameter in the agentparm.txt file on the CA WA Agent that runs the FTP job and restart the System Agent.
