ORABPEL-11438 when connecting to FTP server (BPEL)

we have ftpAdapter set up on OAS on a server (linux) and all ftp credentials were configured.
We also have BPEL deployed on the said server that uses the adapter to connect and poll for incoming file/s.

However, the following error occurs on the opmn logs:

Error in establishing connection to FTP Server.
Unable to establish connection to server.
Please ensure hostname and port specified to login to the server is correct.

I tried to connect manually from my local to the ftp server using winscp using the same credentials applied on ftpAdapter on OAS just to check if the problem might be on the ftp server side. However, I can connect.

Can someone please help me or advice (just a newbie)?

Are you using Secure FTP or plain FTP?

If Secure FTP (meaning that your traffic is encrypted with SSL), you need to be sure your keystore and your truststore have the appropriate credentials / certificates and that your root certificates have not expired.

If using either Secure or not, you can check your connection from the OAS server by telnet'ing to the OAS server and trying an FTP session from there. It could be that you have a firewall blocking your conx from the OAS server.
I agree. Here's the link:
