    Hi,

    Use proxy to connect XI to XI, necessary configuration can be found in configuration guide (basically setting up RFC connection etc).

    Hi Gangadhar,

    You can use SOAP adapter as thats the best way to keep everything open for future(Dont connect to just other XI) and also the Security is possible using SSL. Sender XI Server should have SOAP client/SOAP Receiver Channel and Reciever XI Server should have SOAP Sender channel as SOAP server.

    Versions wont matter as the SOAP adapters work at webservice layer.
