    Hi,

    Port is the transfering point for the transfering system to the receiving system.

    For receiving system it is receiving port and the trasfering system it is transfering port.

    hi

    Port is the Logical representation of communication.

    There are 4 types of ports

    1)TRFC

    2)File

    3)R/2 (ABAP/4)

    4)Internet

    In ALE we transfer/exchange the data (SAP Data) b/w 2 systems ie only through RFC (Transaction RFC) we communicate with the other system.we use File Port to transfer Non Sap data b/w systems.

    Tcodes :

    Port Creation : WE21

    RFC Destination : SM59

    Regards

      Hi Rama

      As much as i know

      1) Yes we can use File port for ALE. (Not Exactly sure how).

      2) RFC destinations is used to connect to SAP systems.

      And when two SAP systems try to communicate they use tRFCs.

      3) The use of ports in defined in ALE layer of SAP. Different types of ports are used to send Idoc data.

      4) ALE uses RFC Connections. An RFC connection should have an RFC destination for it to work.

    Hi Sajad,

    In general terms,

    Port is the physical connection between recieving and sending systems.

    Port can be defined in Tcode we21.

    We use TRFC port for ALE connectivity
