Subject JaSFtp capability question
Date   01/19/2006
Message I found your product on Internet and it wonder if it can handle our needs,

We communicate batch files with external companies, the method used is our application saves a file on a specified in-directory and checks if there is a response file in an out-directory, if so we pick it up. We now need this implemented for secure ftp and need a solution there a sftp server pools the inbox and if it finds a file removes it and transfer it to a predefined tcp/ip address. It also needs to poll that address frequently for return files which automatically should be transferred to our out-directory. In other words we need a fully automated process. One final whish would be to have parallel set of directories so that abc-in is transferred to and the return to abc-out while dfg-in is transferred to yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy with return file to dfg-out.

Please let me know if this is doable



Reply1 Hi Gunnar,

Thanks for your interest in our products. Here is some information:

1) You can try and use JaSFtp .

2) It has a SFTP task. The task options are shown here:

3) There is a scheduler so you can schedule this task to run every 5-10 minutes etc.. This will automatically take care of your polling needs. There is also a SFTP monitor task, which is probably not required for your application.

4) For your application, you would need to create 2 SFTP tasks, one for the inbox and other for the return files.

5) Additionally, the product has File/directory monitoring tasks, copy/rename/delete tasks etc.. that can do peripheral processing if required.
