And also I need to provide customer with IP address and port where they will send message and from where they will receive message, so which IP address should i provide?is it ip address of xi server or some thing else?

If possible please send me some links related to this.

    U have to give XI ip adress and port details to your customer to send message. But this is always not mandatory.

    I wan to know where i need to maintain this IP and port number for sender and receiver both.

    This depends upon the adapter you will be using for communication. What type of communicating systems do you have in your landscape? e.g. File, Database, Webservice etc.

      Hi Prateek,

      I am using idoc adapter. Customer has Business connector. I am using IDOC adapter just for testing purpose to check whether their firewall is getting hit our message or not. But after this I have to go with CIDX adapter.

      The customer has also provided address like this,

      https://149.**.*.:**/invoke/abc_comp.flows:receiveOrderResponse where they wan me to send message..

      how can i send msg on this.?

    I wan to know where i need to maintain this IP and port number for sender and receiver both. U need to create RFC destination SM59 for customer ip address.

    Port WE21 need to created at ur system. U can use same port as sender and receiver

    And also I need to provide customer with IP address and port where they will send message and from where they will receive message, so which IP address should i provide?is it ip address of xi server or some thing else?

    IP address of XI server needs to be provided.

    Port - Port of XI server - SAPX***

    If u connect XI system with R/3 using RFC or IDOC you make port and RFC destination where u mentioned IP address of your host.

    SMICM transaction you can see HTTP port that is used for communicatig .
