How To Perform Automated Data Transfers With A Host With No File Transfer Service

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Thu, Sep 17, 2020 @ 03:04 AM

As an IT administrator, you probably encountered this problem before — there's this host that you want to transfer files with on an automated basis but it doesn't have any file transfer service.

How To Schedule an AS2 File Transfer

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Fri, Jun 12, 2020 @ 11:00 AM

In a previous post on automated AS2 file transfers, we showed you how to configure JSCAPE MFT Server so that it would monitor a directory for newly added files and then, each time a new file is detected, transmit that file to an AS2 trading partner.

If so, this course of action (pun intended) isn't the right way to do it.

And one of the hardest parts is in setting up the connection (basically, between two trading partners) itself. This method we're about to share with you should greatly simplify things in that regard.
