Modify a global embedded SMTP server

The global embedded SMTP server is available after you add an SMTP transport for receiving messages from partners to a community. Communities can share this transport. You can change the server’s port and advanced options.

To change settings:

  1. Select System management > Manage embedded servers. Or, click Trading configuration on the toolbar.
  2. On the Communities page, click the link near the bottom of the page named Manage all embedded servers.

Settings tab

  • Host – The fully qualified domain name of the computer on which the embedded server runs. Activator detects this setting; you cannot change it.
  • Port – The port on which the server listens for connection requests.
  • Host used by partners – The fully qualified domain name or IP address that a community’s partners must use to connect to this embedded server. Activator supplies a value based on the name of the host computer. It’s possible you may have to change it. Contact your firewall administrator if you need help with this field.
  • Port used by partners – The port number that a community’s partners must use to connect to this embedded server. Contact your firewall administrator if you need help with this field.

Advanced tab

  • Backlog – The number of connections that the server puts “on hold” while it is busy. Once this number is reached, connections are refused.
  • Read timeout (seconds) –The maximum number of seconds the server waits when reading data from a partner.

Set the system property to permit EDI processing

To enable Activator to automatically process the incoming EDI files that are attached to emails, regardless of the used Mime type, after you configure Activator for the reception of email messages you must set a system property to force Activator to ignore the ContentMimeType attribute value. To do this:

  1. Log into the Activator user interface as an administrator.
  2. Manually enter the following URL in your browser: http://<localhost or machinename>:<port>/ui/core/SystemProperties#
  3. The Systems Properties page is displayed.
  4. At the bottom of the page click Show default system properties.
  5. Find the default system property entry actionTree.clearContentTypeProtocolsList, and click Add Property.
  6. In the Value field, enter AS2.
  7. Click Add.
