Purpose of RFC Destianation on XI to ERP

Hi

Can someone tel me the exact purpose of RFC destination on XI side when I am doing an IDOC to File ( asyn ) ?

I have been through existing posts, dint find any useful inference

IDOC is sender and file is receiver. Why do we need to create a RFC destination on the PI end to an ERP system?

regards,

Nikhil.

    Hi,

    In XI you need to maintain the Sender PORT in IDX1 for the ERP system. For IDOCs sender PORT information is must. In XI the IDOC metadat is stored in IDX2 based on the PORT name.

    So to set-up this port you need to have the RFC Destination for ERP system.

    If you don't have the RFC destination, the pushed IDOC will stuck up in R/3 only at SM58 with PORT error.

    Thanks

    In order to let the R3 system talk to XI, one has provide a means of communication. RFC destinations are nothingbut those means.
