    Hi,

    I am not clear on why do you need to ADD a separate adapter??

    What I understand is you need to develope a B2B Scenario where your PI will communicate to DMZ server which will talk with Target Application. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    If my understanding is correct, then you need a secure communication between DMZ and Outside Network application.

    Please give more clarity on your requirement.

    Hi,

    As per my understanding, the target server with which you will be communication is located in DMZ network.

    But to communicate with it, you don't have to configure and add new adapter, instead, you can analyse, what type of service can be established on the target server (or find out if it is already there installed) like, FTP service or webservice, etc.

    Once this is confirmed, then you can go ahead with the usage of adapters already available in PI.

    Eg: for FTP, there is file adapter for webdervice , there is SOAP.

    If required, you can have additional security to the communication by installing secured certificates and calling them in communication channel.

    You can have both network level security and message level security while transferring messages through PI to external parties.
