How to Configure an FTP Receive Handler

You can set FTP receive handler properties in the BizTalk Server Administration console. You use these receive handler properties as the receive location configuration values if properties are not set on the individual FTP receive locations.

noteNote
The FTP adapter in BizTalk Server 2010 supports reading and writing data from a secure FTP server. The adapter provides support for file transfer from an FTP server over Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)/Transport Level Security (TLS). For more information see Enhancements to the FTP Adapter in BizTalk Server 2010.

  3. In the expanded adapter list, select FTP.

  4. In the right pane, double-click the receive handler.

  5. In the Adapter Handler Properties dialog box, from the Host name drop-down list, select the host with which the receive handler will be associated, and then click Properties.
