How to configure FTP/VAN Adapter for SFTP connection?


I am new to the use of Seeburger's FTP/VAN adapter. I read SDN threads where the FTP/VAN adapter can be used for SFTP connections. Could anyone assist me in the steps to configure the communication channels for SFTP connections?


1. R/3 -> XI -> File (SFTP server)

2. File (SFTP server) -> XI -> IDoc

There is no VAN connection involved. I am just trying to utilize the adapters my PI system currently have for my interface requirement.

Is the configuration as simple as configuring the communication channel or there are scripts involved? If there are scripting involved, is there a benefit to use scripting in the FTP/VAN adapter, rather than XI's own File adapter?

Please assist. Thank you.
