Message Processing at receiver FTP adapter

Hello,

I am using FTP at the receiver side and trying to connect to that receiver using File/FTP Receiver adapter.

Now i have config all the details of the FTP server in the channel. Now i want to know how it connects to the FTP server and keeps the files inside the file directory which ever is mentioned in the config.

Is there any involvement of DNS server here to connects to FTP server through our File Receiver adapter.

Thanks,

Soorya

    Hi,

    Try to ping your target location FTP /DNS- IP from your XI box.

    If itu2019s not possible to ping, contact your SA and bypass firewall settings. Once you can able to ping or access your target location...then no issueu2026

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Internally File Adapter has that capability to connect to the FTP Server for that mentioned IP

    This adapter is developed on based on JAVA, inside that we have this facility to connect to FTP Server

      I'm not sure about the Java-part, but in the ABAP-stack hostnames and ip-addresses are buffered.

      So, from the ABAP-stack point-of-view your scenario will not work.

      In that case you will need a kind of a proxy,

      so XI can access the proxy and be re-directed to the correct FTP-server.

    Hi Surya,

    Try to ping your target location FTP /DNS- IP from your XI box ?

    How you can ping the server from XI box? Can you please help me in doing that?

    SA - means System Admin. ???

    What shall i tell our SA to do the necessary changes for making this successfull.

    --->Ask your basis team to ping from command prompt of XI server(OS level)to the FTP site...Basically in any server a routing table table is made which helps in accepting the connection req....in ur case entry of ur XI server should be there in FTP server...

    Ask ur SA to make permanent entry in routing tables...

    Regards,
