An FTP Monitor allows you to test the availability and response time of your FTP server, via public and private agents.

Once you add an FTP monitor for your FTP server, Anturis Agent will start trying to connect to your FTP server according to the time intervals you specified, to check if your FTP server is accessible.
An FTP Monitor connects to the specified FTP port and waits for the server to respond with a standard "Service Ready for a new user" Code 220 message.
