Configuring FTP tests

FTP tests of an NQA test group are used to test the connection between the NQA client and an FTP server and the time required for the FTP client to transfer a file to or download a file from the FTP server.

Before you start FTP tests, configure the FTP server. For example, configure a username and password that are used to log in to the FTP server. For more information about FTP server configuration, see Fundamentals Configuration Guide.
