How To Use A Windows SMB Share As Network Storage For Your File Transfer Server

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Sat, Jun 20, 2020 @ 01:24 AM

When a user uploads files via FTP/S, SFTP, HTTP/S, or any supported file transfer protocol to JSCAPE MFT Server, those files don't have to be stored on the same machine as that server. Instead, you can have those files redirected to a variety of network storage options like a remote SFTP service, Amazon S3, Dropbox and several others. In this post we're going to show you how to store uploaded files to a remote Windows SMB share.

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. Today, we're going to try something different. We're going to set up JSCAPE MFT Server to carry out an AS2 transmission on a pre-defined schedule.

Don't Pair Regex Trigger Actions With A Directory Monitor Event

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Fri, Apr 10, 2020 @ 10:11 PM

When sever admins pair regex-type trigger actions (e.g. Trading Partner Regex File Upload) with a directory monitor event (e.g. Directory Monitor File Added) on JSCAPE MFT Server, the usual intention is to apply the action on the file(s) that was/were detected by the directory monitor. If so, this course of action (pun intended) isn't the right way to do it.

How to Ignore Specific Errors in Exception Handling | JSCAPE

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Sun, Apr 05, 2020 @ 04:35 PM

In a previous post, we taught you how to set up triggers that catch and handle trigger errors thrown by other triggers. Now, earlier this week, we received a query from a customer who had this kind of trigger but wanted to ignore a particular trigger event. That is, they didn't want their error handling trigger to execute its succeeding action(s) if the error thrown was a certain type of error. Here's one way to do it.

An Easier Way Of Exchanging AS2 Trading Partner Credentials

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Thu, Mar 26, 2020 @ 10:44 PM

AS2 is no doubt the best option for carrying out B2B exchanges of EDI documents. However, compared to general purpose file transfer protocols like FTP/S or SFTP, it's known to be considerably more difficult to set up. 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.
