    Hi Kumar,

    Create a folder on XI Server. For your testing you can put the file on created xi server folder and then test it. If you put in SAP then either you have to do FTP or file sharing using NFS.

    Hi Suresh,

    I think you are wondering to know which folder should be used as source or receiver....??

    If yes , you can use any of the drive and folders in it for testing purpose.One more approach is to make the system as FTP by installing GUILD FTP free software and use it.

    Refer the follwing blog on how to use FTP software and make use of it

    Thanks,

    Hi Satish,

    Thanks for your quick response. You mean to say we can place the file in any existing folder in XI AL11.

    Regards,

      In file adapter, you can use FTP or NFS.

      let assume you have working standalone server. i mean in your system sever had been installed.. you are not connecting PI server which is running on another machine remotely. You machine acting as a server and client.. you can use NFS.. placing a any folder any locaton.. and just you have mention the path (eg. C:\test\tesfile.xml) in the communication channel.

      or the PI server installed on other machine.. but u stil wanna use NFS . try As Suraj said.

      FTP protocol used to transfer file to particular ftp location.. assume your file has to place in a particular folder which is placed on some remote machine) that time you have to mention the details about ftp server( like IP address of the FTP server) and location or path of folder (here path name should be start with '/' symbol and not drive letter so you path will look like "/test/testfile.xml" without double quotes).

    Hi,

    You can create a windows folder share on the PI Box.

    You can then place files in this folder from your desktop.

    Give the window file path in the channel setting as C:\share\xyz.txt

    However, I like using FTP server installed on my desktop. You can use any free FTP server like Filezilla.
