    Use NFS for placing files in local machine

    hi krishna,

    <i>>>1) where should the flatfile be put , like either in the remote(local) file system or xi server file system</i>

    If you are going to place the file in remote file system ( different network )then you have to use FTP

    If you are going to place the file in the same network where xi Server is installed the use the NFS (Network file system protocol)

    <i>>>2) do we need to have FTP server for transfering flat file in XI</i>

    It depends on where you place the file

    The choice is based from where file need to be picked

      hi krishna,

      Here you require to use NFS protocol.

      First from you XI System

      Click windows Start -->

      goto Run-> and type the path of the your local file system.

      This is to check whether XI can access your system

      I think usually the path will be
      <host name or ip address of ur local system>\filename

      for receiver, it not necessary to check as it is in XI Server only.

      yes u can use NFS

      regards

    Hi Krishna,

    File can be posted either in the local machine or in the FTP server.

    If u are posting the file in the local machine use the NFS transport protocol or if u are using the FTP server use the FTP transport protocol.

    Hope this clarifies.

    Regards

    San

    Hi Krishna,

    You can use NFS mode in your Communication Channel and then can put the file on XI application server by tcode <b>SXDA_TOOLS</b>.
