Hi All,

I need some details for both AS2 sender and receiver adapter.

Sender AS2 adapter :

1. Use Proxy

Use Authentication

Which one we need to use?

2. what is this Proxy Realm or Authentication Realm??

3. Whether we need to enable Hostname check & HTTP keep alive? what is the purpose of these settings?

4. what is this Message subject ?? the content of this comes from the file name or file data?

5. Server certificate and private key authentication?? do we need to get these from partner system??

Receiver AS2 adapter :

1. Here also the same question when we need to use Proxy settings and when we need to use Authentication settings.

2. Dynamic attributes??

Use dynamic attributes

Use non-empty attributes.

What are the information we need to ask partner system to get the connection??

Please reply if anyone worked on these AS2 settings.

Thank You.

    Sender Adapter..

    1.You can use both use proxy and use authentication.depends upon the requirement.

    when you use proxy you have to give proxy server name and all parameters.That means proxy server acts like your actual server.To pass this data through the AS2 apdapter U hv to specify th following parameters.

    Proxy Server : Your proxy server.

    Proxy Port :The port of the proxy server.

    Proxy User: User for optional authentication.

    Proxy Password: Password for optional authentication.

    Proxy Realm: Realm for optional authentication.

    2. REALM

    A realm is a part of Yanel which has its own configuration and repository. This allows you to run several subsites (which are independent of one another) in a single Yanel instance. For example, each department in your company can have its own realm. This allows one department to use its database as a content repository and another to use the filesystem to provide the content to Yanel

    So proxy realm means u r authorized to use the proxy server

    You use Use Authentication for -

    >Used to enable/disable basic authentication.

    Use Authentication Used to enable/disable basic authentication.

    User: User for basic authentication.

    Password: Password for basic authentication.

    Realm: Realm for basic authentication.

    3. if u check these options for the following purpose.

    SSL Hostname Check: Validate common name with server name.

    HTTP Timeout:Timeout in seconds for waiting for server


    4.Message Subject: This subject will be compared with the subject in the received message. This is used to find the

    correct channel for the inbound message. Wildcards are allowed.Its the file data.

    5. Your partne rwill provide u these details.

    Receiver Adapter:

    1.If u use the same in sender side then u hv to verify it again in the receiver system. Then only the communication is established.

    3.u must have the AS2ID and the certificates.

      1. So u mean to say the HTTP information has to given in the rcv AS2 adapter to receive MDN's.?

      For MDN's there is a option in the communication like MDN mode Select one of the following:

      • SYNC to request a synchronous MDN,

      • ASYNC to request an asynchronous MDN,

      • NONE if no MDN is requested

      So it is again depends upon the requirement.

      2. To connect to there servers , We need to provide either Proxy or User Authentication details??

      Your partner always send a message to AS2 server which is installed on XI so that is required and its B2B so u r using the proxy server u that is also required.

      3. AS2 ID will be WAN number of the partners?

      The value of the Agency field must be Seeburger.

      •The value of the Schema field must be AS2ID.

      The AS2ID that is entered here will be used for identifying the sender and receiver of the document

      This is used in party identifier tab.
