The FTP function is used to access a third-party NMS. The SmartLogger can report the configuration information and running data of the managed PV plant system through FTP. A third-party NMS can access Huawei devices after being configured.
FTP is a universal standard protocol without any security authentication mechanism. Data transmitted by FTP is not encrypted. To reduce network security risks, the IP address of the connected third-party FTP server is left blank by default. This protocol can transmit the running data of PV plants, which may cause user data breach. Therefore, exercise caution when using this protocol. Users are liable for any loss caused by the enabling of the FTP protocol (non-secure protocol). Users are advised to take measures at the PV plant level to reduce security risks, or use Huawei management system to mitigate the risks.
