The FTP client software has been installed on the client. 2. The client and server can successfully ping each other. When the preceding conditions are met, FTP file transfer can be performed between interfaces of any type, such as Eth-Trunk interfaces and management interfaces.

Why is no file found in FTP transfer on an S series switch
For S series switches (except S1700 switches), the possible causes are as follows: 1. The file transferred does not exist. 2. The file name is incorrect. 3. The file name contains spaces. Huawei devices do not support file names containing spaces. If a file name contains spaces, the device reads only the part before the spaces; therefore, an error occurs in file transfer and no file is found.
