Rename File
The FTP Rename Files object renames files on your FTP server.
How it is used
The Rename File object can be used to rename a batch of files after they are moved to an archive to include the date that they were archived.
To configure the Rename File object, you need to know the server name, port, username, password, and security settings of the FTP server that you are connecting to. You will also need to know the path of the files that will be renamed and what they will be renamed to.
Details tab
Old name
Type the name of the file you want to rename.
New name
Type the new name of the file.
Add button
Once you have specified Old name and New name, click the Add button to commit the condition to the list.
Remove button
Click to remove the selected condition from the list.
Edit button
Click to edit the selected condition. After you have edited the condition, you must click Add to put it back in the list.
Destination tab
Server name or IP
Type the URL or IP address of the FTP server.
Type the port for the FTP server. (Default 21)
Type the username that will be used to log in to the FTP server.
Type the password that is associated with the FTP user you specified.
Re-type the password specified in the Password field.
Server Type
Select the type of server that you are connecting to. Only change this option if you are experiencing problems communication with an IBM or a DEC VMS FTP server.

Select to use the SSH private key that you specified in the FTP Options dialog.
Passive mode (firewall friendly)

Advanced tab
Type the timeout period in seconds to wait for the server to come back online after a transfer has been interrupted. Once the time has expired, if there is no communication with the server, the Rename File object fails.
