Connect Android device to SAP system

568 Views

Hi guys,

Below is the description of our app and the problems we face.Please help us to find the solution

Application Description:

Terminal App is utility app that can be used to manage the SAP Landscape.It is used to stop, start SAP.

Technologies Used:

  • Telnet Protocol
  • SSH Protocol
  • Java Programming
  • Android SDK
  • Eclipse

Background

In networks ,devices for example two PC’s can connect to each other using few protocols like telnet, SSH, RDP etc….These depends upon client server architecture i.e. there has to be server available to satisfy the request made from the clients.

Our Terminal App also uses the Telnet /SSH protocols to connect to the SAP systems.

Issues

On SAP systems hosts which could be either UNIX or Windows based.

Due to security reasons the ports used by Telnet /SSH protocols are generally closed in SAP environments.

Asking customer to open these ports will make the system susceptible.

Possible Solution

A connector or plugin that can be installed on the mobile device and SAP host which can allow the commands executed on the mobile device to control the sapstartsrv.exe and sapstopsrv.exe.
