Remote machine connection

  1. Recently I have started on Robot Framework with Python and as per one requirement I need to connect remote machine and upload one file at particular folder.
    Is it possible with Robot Framework?

  2. Can we access outlook account with Robot Framework? as per one requirement we need to verify the notification email get generated or not after some action in our application. If yes then how to do that?

Hi Gituwalia,

  1. sure that’s possible,
  • how do you get the file there when you do it manually?
    • windows file copy?
    • ftp / sftp?
    • web form submit?
  • Should the test automation do it the same way? Once you know which file transfer protocol you need it should be easy enough to identify a suitable library.
  1. There’s a couple of libraries that might help here:
