File Transfer Access Method (FTAM), also known as File Transfer Access and Management or Electronic File Transfer Access Method (EFTAM), is an ISO standard (8571) that specifies methods of transfering files between networked computers. FTAM is based on the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model and is similar to File Transfer Protocol (FTP) and Network File System (NFS).

FTAM can be broken down into functional categories known as service classes, as follows:

  • Transfer class, which facilitates the simple exchange of files.
  • Management class, which facilitates the creation, modification and deletion of files.
  • Transfer-and-management class, which facilitates directory navigation and manipulation.
  • Access class, which facilitates operations on file access structures.
This was first published in August 2006
