    A port is used in an outbound process to define the medium in which documents are transferred to the destination system. ALE used a Transactional RFC port, which transfers data in memory buffers.

    hi,

    The Port Definition

    A port is used in an outbound process to define the medium in which documents are transferred to the destination system. ALE uses a tRFC (Transactional Remote Function Call) port, which transfers data in memory buffers.

    Note The EDI process uses file ports to transfer data to the subsystem in a standard text file format.

    Hope this helps, Do reward.

    hi,

    in ALE/IDOC configiration you need to define 4 thing

    1)logical System name

    2)partnet profile

    3)port

    4)rfc destination

    1)logical system:- this is the way to identify your system Uniquely thus u are giving a name to it (Tcode bd54)

    2) in rfc destination will point to your receiver system ie system who is going to receive the IDOC.(TCODESM59)

    3)partner prifile:here u are maintaning the profie for your parner

    in sende side maintain the profile for the receiver system

    and inreceivet side maintaine the profile for sender side(TCODEwe20)

    4)port:- now come to the port

    TCODE :-we21 inR/3 Side

    here assign the port name (any thing)

    and the rfc destinatin which you created before.

    thus you can say that port is the place from where you can send the IDOC and RFC destination is the target where this IDOC have to reach.

    you have to define port in xi side also using the TCODE IDX1

    and the conectivity between port and the rfc destination is provided bu partner profile..

    regards

    if it is usefull please give some point
