GoAnywhere MFT can connect to both standard FTP servers and secure FTP servers using SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol), SCP, and FTPS (FTP over SSL) protocols. GoAnywhere MFT will help guarantee delivery of FTP transfers with options to auto-retry connections, auto-resume interrupted file transfers and perform integrity checks of successful file transfers.
FTP server connections can be pre-defined in GoAnywhere MFT's Administrator as reusable Resources which can be selected from simple drop down menus. FTP Tasks can be placed within GoAnywhere MFT Projects and executed as part of a cohesive workflow process. For instance, a Project could be defined to retrieve records from a database file, convert the records into a CSV file, and then put the CSV file onto a FTP server.
When getting or putting files via FTP, the files selected can be included and excluded using various filter criteria:
Audit trails (logs) are generated for all FTP transmissions in GoAnywhere MFT to meet auditing and compliance requirements. The level of log detail can be controlled by an administrator on a per-Project basis. This detail can be configured to include all FTP commands issued, FTP messages and file names transferred. Log messages can additionally be sent to a Syslog server using UDP or TCP connections.p
