Scenario: User is trying to access the report folder on NCS using FTP but getting "Error: Critical error cannot connect to the server".
User like to access to the reports folder on the NCS using a ftp software (filezilla ftp client 3.3.3). This folder is located at '
/localdisk/ftp/reports/' on the virtual machine. He also created a ftp user using the command line with 'ncs password ftpuser ftpncs password *******'.
But the remote connection still doesn't work.
Output Logs from FTP:

Command: USER ftpncs
Answer: 331 User name okay, need password for ftpncs
Command; PASS ******
Answer: 530 Access Denied
Error: Critical error cannot connect to the server
Tried a FTP in a dump DOS window just to make sure that app isn't the problem.
Used filezilla which uses SFTP.
Tried the above mentioned but same result, either with user root or the user created for ftp. After typing the password, getting '530 Access Denied'.
After connecting to the ftp/, the username is OK but access is denied after typing the password. User did performed the below mentioned Verification steps.
Check GUI > configure > FTP/TFTP and make sure that the default FTP has the correct IP that you use for your session.
As you are able to login that would indicate that the service is enabled in running but you'd take a look in the GUI >administration > settings >server settings
... and also on the CLI
Health Monitor Server is running.Reporting Server is SuccessFtp Server is SuccessDatabase server is runningTftp Server is SuccessMatlab Server is Success
NMS Server is running.
From the CLI of NCS, type in:
dir disk: --->This will show you the files and folders. FTP is what you want, so if you type in:dir disk:ftp/ --->This will show you what's in the FTP folder. So is this where your reports are being placed?To change the FTP username from the CLI:ncs passwod ftpuser username password password
When you FTP into NCS, you will be in the FTP/ folder, in which you can add folders and files.
User Tried with Command prompt and Filezilla but the results are same:
FTP port 21 is not blocked.
