FTP over SSL connectivity in File Adapter


Hi All,

I request your suggestion on my problem. I have a scenario idoc to file where I am connecting to my vendor server throught SFTP (Ftp over SSL). In this my vendor specifically told that to obtain secure FTP connectivity to their server they require a pre-approved Secure FTP client be used to access the service.

So as per this requirement first our XI server need to coneect to the pre-approved client and the connectivity will happen to the vender server. He list the pre-approved client as below

*Cleo Lexicom 2.1

*TrailBlazer ZMOD FTP Client V3R1 PTF Level PFT3100034

*QualEDI for Windows, 32-bit version

*Ascential DataStage TX, Release 7.5

*Future 3 - Advanced Communication Module Plus (ACM Plus)

*eBridge FTPS Communicator for GXS version 5.3

*Ipswitch Inc's WS_FTP Professional version 8.02.

·Robo-FTP version 3.2

Please let me know will this be possible from our file adapter. Currently as per this requirement we open up the port of XI server for SFTP connecvity but through this we can have host to host connection over SFTP and not sure whether we can connect to client software and from their to vendor sever.

Kindly needful your suggestion/solution on this.
