SFTP ADAPTER

we have 30 vendors who transmit files with 3mb to 15mb over the internet(300-400 files daily) using SFTP adapter

Whats the best way to go, Is XI capable of handling the load or run a unix script and bring them to local and process them.

Just give your thoughts on this.

    Hey

    XI does not support SFTP,it supports only FTPS.

    You need to buy third party adapters like SeeBurger for this.

    Thanx

    Hii Ramesh,

    SFTP (FTP using SSH) is not an available option for File Adapter. We can have FTPs file adapter with FTP protocol , but that is FTP using SSL and not SFTP.

    For enabling SFTP - both the Receiver and the Sender need to be SFTP enabled to exchange SSH key (as this is FTP under SSH authentication provided by Microsoft). If you want to establish an SFTP communication using XI - you might use File System protocol to create the file in a designated folder and there a custom script can be used to put the file in the SFTP server (traget) under User Authentication.

    This link will answer all your queries :
