Best approach to read a file on ECC 5.0 system

Hello experts, I need some coaching on the best method for an integration. We are running XI 3.0, on a windows server and ECC 5.0 on a unix server. There is an existing process in ECC 5.0 that creates a file on the unix server. I need to be able to pickup that file in XI and process it. I know I can use FTP to pick up that file, but I am looking for a more 'native' type of interface. I have not used the XI adapter, would this be an option to bridge the gap between Netweaver on windows and Netweaver on Unix? Please share your thoughts!

    Hello Matt,

    It dosent make any different for SAP XI whether file resides on Unix System / Windows server other than specifying the file path while reading file. 😊

    You can use XI File adapter with FTP connection to R/3 system and it will pick up the file.

    Let us know if you need more details.

    Matt,

    If you want to bridge the gap between Windows and Unix, there is not much of a difference. The files on both, Windows and Unix systems are treated in a similar fashion. Please explain your problem in detail. What do you mean by a more "native" type of interface ? Also, the entire scenrio description will help.

      There are lots of security options provided by XI...at Message Level as well as Transport level. You can used them to secure your message.
