Sync webcam photos from FTP to Dropbox

Sync webcam photos from FTP to Dropbox

New member | Level 2

Hi,

 

I'm trying to sync photos from a webcam HIKVISION DS-2CD2685FWD-IZS(2.8-12mm)(B), which are being saved onto an FTP server, to Dropbox Business Team folder.

 

I've found a post on Dropbox official webpage that it should be possible to sync FTP to Dropbox, but it does not state any concrete solution.

 

Does anyone have a solution to that, please?

 

P.S. I've also tried to use MS Power Automate, but I always received an error message that the trigger failed to run due to unauthorized login (failure 401). Does anyone have experience with that, please?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi @mezereon, thanks for messaging the Community!

 

Currently there isn’t a way to sync files directly from an FTP server to your Dropbox account. That article you linked refers to the differences between the two systems.

 

There might be some third party apps or services that can assist with this matter.

 

Hope this helps!
