FTP RFC Connection setup - step by step

Good afternoon


I am not a BASIS/System Administrator; in my colleague's absence I have to attempt setting up an FTP RFC Connection.


I have the following information:

1. IP Address

2. Username

3. Password


The following is the setup I tried:

a. Connection Type == G - HTTP Connection to Ext. Server

b. Target Host (Technical Settings Tab) == &IP Address&

c. Logon username (Logon/Security Tab) == &Username&

d. Logon password (Logon/Security Tab) == &Password&


But, the 'Test Connection' fails with 'ICM_HTTP_CONNECTION_FAILED'.


Any suggestions to resolve will be much appreciated!

Thank you and best regards, Adrian
