Why am I getting an error Unable to access FTP site in IBM i-Series?

Overview

I am unable to access the FTP website, I am getting an error message when I try to do so.

Environment

Avalara Avatax

IBM i-Series SDK

Resolution

  • Try to ping  ftp.taxrates.com 
    from your  IBMi command line .... if you cannot then you have a firewall or 
    DNS problem which you will need to fix yourself.
