UseFTP Property

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The UseFTP property specifies whether snapshot files are downloaded using File Transfer Protocol (FTP) by pull subscriptions.


object.UseFTP [= value]

object

An expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list

value

TRUE or FALSE

Boolean

Read/write

HRESULT GetUseFTP(LPBOOL pRetVal);
HRESULT SetUseFTP(BOOL NewValue);

When creating Internet-enabled pull subscriptions, set the UseFTP property to TRUE to download snapshot files from the Distributor using FTP protocol. Replication downloads files in .cab format, and then it decompresses them automatically. Use the FTPAddress, FTPLogin, FTPPassword, and FTPPort properties of the Publication object to assign additional FTP-related settings.

The AltSnapshotFolder property cannot be set at the same time that UseFTP is set to TRUE because AltSnapshotFolder might be used in conjunction with transporting snapshot files by means of portable media.

If an application calls UseFTP on an instance of SQL Server version 7.0, the constant, SQLDMO_E_SQL80ONLY, and the message "This property or method requires Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or later" are returned.
