Hi Carlos,

Please try with a relative path in RemotePath:

It worked like that for me(UiPath.FTP.Activities version 1.0.6479.13206)
Note that the “test” folder from the LocalPath is different from the one in the RemotePath.

What FTP Client are you using? And can you share the root path of the Remote site?

For example, mine is C:\Users\myUser\Documents

@ovi

Local Diretory

Remote FTP

So you got an error while running: “Download: I won’t open a connection to…”.

I’ve googled it and it seems that you need to use passive FTP mode. More info here:

Omitting the last directory separator, that is \, I was able to upload a file. However, the output file lists (DownloadedFiles, NotDownloadedFiles, UploadedFiles, NotUploadedFiles) are not populated. Is it always the case and can I not rename the file to be downloaded/uploaded on the go? Since it only works by omitting the last directory separator, I think it is not possible.

I tried in same way. Downloading and uploading working fine for FTP home directory, but it’s not working for other FTP directories. Can you please tell me what may be the reason for that.

Hi Shyam_E,
I’m also facing the same problem but instead of using “Open FTP Session”, you can use “With FTP Session” which is working in my case
