Not able to receive Logstash input fron FTP server

Hi, I m using Logstash 5.1.1 in Windows operating system.

I am trying to receive logstash input fron FTP server with the below filter:

input {
exec {
command => "curl ftp://servername/apacheLog.log"
interval => 300

And getting the error: " 'curl' is not recognized as an internal or external command,operable program or batch file. "

Please suggest.

Obtaining logs in this way is not a good idea. I strongly suggest you install Filebeat on the FTP server and ship the log to Logstash.

The error message you're getting in quite clear: Logstash can't find curl, so either it's not installed at all or the directory where it's installed isn't listed in the Logstash process's path.
