What types of interfaces can be used for FTP file transfer
FTP file transfer can be performed between a client and a server as long as the FTP client software has been installed on the client and the client can successfully ping the server. When the preceding requirements are met, FTP file transfer can be performed between interfaces of any type, such as Eth-Trunk interfaces and management interfaces.

What can I do if the file transfer fails on a WLAN device
The possible causes and troubleshooting methods are as follows: 1. The FTP server is incorrectly configured. Check the FTP server configuration to ensure that the configurations on the server and client are correct. 2. The file name is incorrect (file names are case-sensitive) when a command is executed. Check the name of the file to be uploaded to ensure that the file name in the command is correct. If the file system on a WLAN device fails, the system prompts you to rectify the fault. In this case, you are advised to run the fixdisk command in the user view. After this command is executed, if the system still prompts you to rectify the fault, the physical medium may be damaged. You are advised not to run this command when the system is working properly. This command cannot be used to rectify device faults.

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.
