From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

FTAM, ISO standard 8571, is an OSI Application layer protocol for File Transfer Access and Management.

FTAM attempted to combine into a single protocol both file transfer, similar in concept to the Internet FTP, as well as remote access to open files, similar to NFS. RFC 1415 provides an FTP-FTAM gateway specification.

FTAM has not seen wide adoption on the Internet, and attempts to define an Internet-scale file transfer protocol have instead focused on Server message block, NFS or Andrew File System as models.
