Copy File from Remote Computer to Local Computer

Hi PA experts!

Is it possible to use the "File System" connector to copy a file from a remote computer (not a network drive) to a local computer? When I try this, I always get a 404 error, as if either the remote/local file paths do not exist. Any insight would be really helpful. Thank you!

Hi @TCW_BDA ,

 

If the remote computer is joined to the same network and there is file sharing enabled/mapped location, you should be able to access the drive/folder as a network drive.  You will still need a data gateway.
