Do I need FTP server to poll a file

Hi,

i am trying to do file to file scenario. I have technical system which is different than XI system. in this case my technical system has to be FTP server to send a file or not necessarily.

I am trying to poll file from windows machine to XI system and send back the file again to windows system.

I added my windows machine as technical system and created bunisess system.

In C, i have my file.

But, it is not polling at all. What to give source and target directory while configuring adapters.

thanks,

Yes, you need FTP connection in order to access file on 3rd system( Not XI)

You need to create FTP Username / password connection to your windows system. Then you can specify this in File adapter with FTP connection details.

Also check the FTP root directory for username which you are going to use to access Windows system and specify path accordingly.

Hope this will help.
