As far as I can understand "folder path" is not an absolute path on your hard drive, but relative to root path on ftp server. You can try to create folder VBAI in root of ftp, then repalce "C:\VBAI" with "VBAI" (or may be "\VBAI") in the settings. What happened if you click on "Test Login" button?

It means that root is current directory.


For setting VBAI as current directory it should be something like



250 OK. Current directory is /VBAI


257 "/VBAI" is your current directory.


Try to remove VBAI from Folder path and leave this setting just empty. Then your images should be written into root directory. Also you have selected option "Log images when inspection status FAIL". May be your status PASS? In this case images will be not logged. Try to change this option to "Log Image".

Are you working with remove target? If so, then your problem in IP address. It should be not (localhost), but real IP address of your PC, because connection established from remote target over network.

but why then there write ftp server login ip, user name and password, if you must write there IP from PC? its a little confusion, if this is right that you must enter IP from PC.

I will try this with IP from PC tomorrow because coworker take camera and i cant try it.
