    Hi Rahul,

    As u said here 4 transactions are taking place.

    Here partner profiles will be the same for the 4 transactions.

    coming to port creation.......actually this port is a channel through which IDOC travels.So it's totally depends upon the requirement.To my knowledge we have to create one port.

    coming to distribution model,where partner profile is generated and communication IDOC is created, we can create one distribution model for each transaction....

    Plz reward points if it helps u...............
