FTPS vs VPN

Hi,

We have a scenario where we need to send the files securely to External system.

Please let me know the best approaches

1. The client has a VPN connectivity. So, from XI is it possible to contact external system via VPN. How is it been achieved

2. If i click FTPS, there are various options related to keystore , use x.1 client authentication etc., What are all these things.

Please let me know as it is going to be receiver file adapter.

Regards

Krish

    If i click FTPS, there are various options related to keystore

    This is enabling of SSL communication on adapter engine. The various required fields information could be retrieved from the SSL configration on ur J2EE engine.

    Are you referring to VAN Connectivity?

    • From my point of view, VPN should be handled at OS level, not application level.

      Hence, you could either:

      1. configure OS to automatically connect to VPN (same configuration as dialup connection);

      2. set VPN connectivity at router (some routers enable automatic connection to VPN).
