VAL Board - Can not connect to the VAL Source

VAL Board - Can not connect to the VAL Source

AVAYA Communication Manager 5.2
VAL Board Announcements

When trying to do a backup......in ASA ....there is a error stating ...BACKUP ANNOUNCEMENT FAILED; CANNOT CONNECT TO THE VAL SOURCE

- Yes I can PING it from my computer.....
- I can still assign/record announcements..
- It still does have space left on the board

What am i missing?

RE: VAL Board - Can not connect to the VAL Source

maybe someone on the firewall side blocked ftp port 21?

the manual way is to 'enable filex' in CM, pop in the board number and a user/pass. If the board IP was and you named the account 'board'...

if you have Linux CLI access to CM, you can ftp board@ and see if you can get in and ls from there. If you can, and if you cannot FTP from your PC with a client like filezilla, then I'd reckon it's a firewall thing.
