Configuring an FTP Download Test Instance

Configuring an FTP Download Test Instance


Before configuring an FTP download test instance, configure the FTP user name, password, and the login directory for the FTP server, and ensure reachable routes between the FTP client and the FTP server.

Pay attention to the following points for an FTP download test:

  • The local device functions as an FTP client to download the specified file from the FTP server.
  • An FTP download test can obtain statistics about each FTP phase, including the time spent in setting up an FTP control connection and the time spent in transmitting data.

The NQA client also functions as the FTP client. Perform the following steps on the NQA client.

At present, the NQA FTP test only supports data transmission in proactive and ASCII modes. Anonymous users cannot be used for the test.

    The system view is displayed.

    • Run destination-port port-number

      The destination port number is configured.

    • Run source-address ipv4 ipv4-address

      The source IP address is configured.

    During the FTP test, select a file of a small size. If the file is too large, the test may fail because of timeout.
