Manage embedded FTP users

There are various places in the user interface where you can view the user accounts associated with embedded FTP servers. The separate areas reflect the three distinct types of accounts:

  • Community FTP accounts
  • Application FTP accounts
  • Partner FTP accounts

There are different types of accounts because a single embedded FTP server can be used for back-end or partner trading, but not both. Separate embedded FTP servers are required. For more information, see FTP (embedded) transport configuration and Embedded FTP user accounts.

On the FTP user pages you can change the password for a user and enable or disable a user. You also can click a link to the exchange point associated with a user. An FTP user account can be deleted only if it is not associated with a delivery exchange.

Attempting to log on to a disabled account results in a 421 account disabled message.
