    If you want to send a file on the FTP server:

    <b>Transport Protocol</b>: File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

    <b>FTP server</b>: <servername>

    <b>FTP port</b>: <port number>

    <b>Transfer Mode</b>: Text (I would use text)

    <b>Folder</b>: /<folder>

    <b>Filename</b>: whatever the filename case sensitive.

    rest is same.

      Yes, if you have created a sender adapter with polling time in secs (i put 10 secs initially to check whether it is getting processed or not, that way i dont have to wait long) and in DELETE mode so that I can know the file is processed.

      There is no manual intervention required

    If you want to send a file residing on the XI server:

    <b>Transport Protocol</b>: File System (NFS)

    <b>Message Protocol</b>: <b>File</b> or <b>File Content Conversion</b> (if you need to convert flat file to XML)

    <b>Adapter Engine</b>: Integration Server

    <b>Source Directory</b>: C:\<folder>

    <b>Filename</b>: whatever the filename case sensitive.

    <b>Quality of Service</b>: Exactly Once

    <b>Poll Interval</b>: (after how many secs you need to check whether there is a file with the name & directory you mentioned above)

    <b>Processing Mode</b>: <b>Delete</b> (i always use it for test purpose, <b>Archive</b> means after reading the file it will be moved to the archive directory), <b>Test</b> means file will be picked up but no other action taken (this causes confusion when you want to know whether the file was picked up or not).

    <b>File Type</b>: Text or Binary (depending on your file type)

    Hope this helps

    regards
