    Hi Dmitry,

    My understanding is that ports are most useful if you are using XI MDPS (Master Data Processing Server?). You define ports in the console. Key thing to remember a port works if you attach it to a client system that is defined as inbound/outbound; does not work if the client system being associated is just inbound or just outbound. You define the file format under format setting.

    In my case, since I do not use XI, I need to manually associate the location of my files to the regedit setting. Only then, port setting can be selected on the import manager file definition.

    I learnt how to define ports. I use import manager batch and syndicator batch but I did not see an additional benefit of using ports with them. For example, I have 70+ tables to load using import manager. Most are based on Excel and XML file types. SO, I have my ini files defined for each of the XMLs, and one for excel (it has several tabs) with source, destination, and file location information. Then, I have a bat file with IMB commands associating each of ini files to a map/agency/language, etc. And execute the bat file from command line.

    May others in the forum who used ports with IMB or Syndicator batch can give more insights.
