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

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Tue, May 04, 2021 @ 04:45 AM

In this tutorial, we 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.

How To Set Up An HTTP File Transfer

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Fri, Jan 15, 2021 @ 03:18 AM

Of all file transfer services out there, perhaps the easiest is using HTTP/S as a file transfer service, aka a web file transfer service. That's because users don't have to install anything. They'll only need to upload or download files from your service for a web browser. If you're using JSCAPE MFT Server, setting up an HTTP/HTTPS file transfer service is easy as well.

JSCAPE is a managed file transfer protocol solution that supports any protocol and any platform. Fully scalable and flexible, JSCAPE's managed FTP server enables users to handle multiple protocols (FTPS, SFTP, AS2 and OFTP, as well as SSH and SSL/TLS) from a single server. This makes it possible to simplify enterprise file transfers, improve compliance with two-factor authentication

With JSCAPE, users can meet any enterprise file sharing needs, including HTTP file transfers. Let me show you how it's done.
