FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is used for transferring files from one host to another or between computers through a network. FTP integration with Core archive is done in order to enable customers to more seamlessly integrate Core with their production workflow by allowing copying files from the archive to FTP manually or to allow automatic FTP uploads of all newly recorded files.
To use FTP in Core, go to http://corecloud.tv and once you open it, navigate to Recordings.
To be able to add your External FTP Storage, click External Storage in the upper-right corner which is next to the Upload File option.
Then, a sidebar Add External FTP Storage will appear. There you will see five text fields: Host, Port, Username, Password and Save Path.
Fill out all of the fields for your external FTP server: Host (IP of your FTP server), your Username and Password. Two fields have default values: Port (21) and Save Path (/).
To Auto save all new files to FTP, enable it after you fill out all the fields above — this will allow your new recordings to be automatically pushed to FTP once they are uploaded to the archive.
After you complete this, click Add Storage and once it’s added, close the sidebar.
Now, if you click kebab menu icon (three dots) on a recorded file, you’ll be able to see Copy to FTP option. Select it and wait for a few seconds to start a copying process. Once it’s completed, a visual confirmation Copied to FTP will appear. There’s also an ability to copy multiple recordings simultaneously, just repeat this process applying to more than one recording at a time.
To disable FTP simply go back to the External Storage and click Remove.
