Hi @supu123

Can you share the error screenshot

You can try to use send hotkey activity to download the files in the SFTP

Hey @supu123

The method using FTP should work fine.

Only thing is to make sure the configuration and credential details are passed correctly same as what is passed in WinScp.

Try to reinstall the UiPath studio

Have a look on the documentation

Screenshot of the error please…

Also, the details you pass here in the props of the activity should be exactly matching the configuration you use in WinSCP

Yes, but its not required.

As the FTP is working fine for me. So is it the public FTP or private ?

Also, if you can share the code once ?

Thanks

If it’s public one we can access over internet and I can even try testing it from my end.

If it’s a private FTP server it is restricted to access only in your environment.
