Overview: Forward Proxy vs. Reverse Proxy

We've talked about reverse proxy servers and how they can really be good at protecting the servers in your internal network. Lately, however, we've realized that some people actually think we're talking about forward proxy servers or that the two are the same, but they're not. This post will explain the differences between forward proxy and reverse proxy use cases.

How To Set Up Automated AS2 File Transfers

Updated by John Carl Villanueva on

Overview

In an earlier quickstart guide to setting up an AS2 server, we featured a manual method for sending EDI messages. Because EDI transactions are best carried out automatically, we thought it would be a good idea to show you how to implement real-time transactions on the same solution we used in that post.

AS2 (applicability statement 2) uses public keys and private keys to encrypt files being transferred between IP addresses. With AS2, security, authentication, message integrity and privacy are ensured with encryption, digital certificates and nonrepudiation techniques. AS2 provides greater security for your EDI data than standard FTP, supporting synchronous and asynchronous MDN (message disposition notification) and digital signatures.

Plus, with JSCAPE's AS2 server you can send files regardless of file size and content type.

How To Setup An AS2 Server With JSCAPE: A QuickStart Guide

Updated by John Carl Villanueva on

In this tutorial, we'll walk you through the basic steps of how to set up and configure an AS2 server.

AS2 uses public keys and private keys to encrypt/decrypt file transfers, strengthening security around sensitive documents and information. While AS1 relied on SMTP, AS2 uses S/MIME and HTTP/S to move data between IP addresses. With AS2, security, authentication, message integrity and privacy are ensured with encryption, digital certificates and nonrepudiation techniques.

Below are the initial steps that will eventually allow you to carry out EDI transactions with an increasing number of trading partners already using this popular B2B file transfer protocol.

Setting Up SFTP Public Key Authentication On The Command Line

Updated by John Carl Villanueva on

SFTP provides an alternative method for ssh client authentication. It's called SFTP public key authentication. This method allows users to login to your SFTP service without entering a password authentication and is often employed for file transfer automation. In this post, we'll walk you through the process of setting up this kind of authentication on the command line. It's easier to do this on a GUI-based interface but if you prefer to do things on the terminal, this post is for you.

Monitoring A Remote SFTP Server for Newly Added Files

Updated by John Carl Villanueva on

Most users of JSCAPE MFT Server are already familiar with directory monitors. You often use it to monitor a directory for newly added files. Although that capability has helped immensely in automating a lot of business processes, it had its limitations. In the past, directory monitors could only be used to monitor local directories and UNC paths but not directories on remote servers. In the upcoming MFT Server 11, that's going to be possible.
