FTP = File Transfer Protocol (file transfer protocol). This protocol is used to transfer files between a server and a client.
You can make a choice between these two methods:
|→||FTP at your side : We need information* from you.|
|→||FTP at CodaBox : FTP at CodaBox: We reserve a special space on our server and we provide you with a tool for the daily collection of files.|
Note: Whatever your choice, there are no additional charges.
|The two 'FTP' methods ensure the same result on your server, the files are delivered in a format and a tree structure compatible with your accounting program. See also our Related articles in the menu on the right.|
You choose an FTP at your side?
- We "push" the files to you via FTP.
- We need a Secured FTP acces: FTP over SSH (SFTP) or FTP over SSL/TLS (FTPS).
- In case of FTPS, we need an Explicit connection (FTPES) in Passive Mode.
The SSL certificate can be a auto-signed.
Once the connection tests have been successfully completed, you can restrict** the access.
To set up an FTP at your side, we need to receive the following information from you:Type of information required*DetailsProtocolSFTP or FTPESHostFor example ftp.example.comPortGenerally 22 for SFTP or 21 for FTPESUsernameIdentifier to connect us to your serverPasswordMust be communicated by email sent to email@example.com or by phone at 02/880.84.80Root directory
