PeSIT server settings tab

  • Click the View setting for this embedded server link to view the server configuration. This link describes the server whose address and port is displayed in the Local connection string field.
  • Access to this server requires a password – Select this option if you want the back-end client to provide a password in order to connect to this server. Enter and confirm the required password.
  • Send acknowledgments for messages received by this exchange – Select this option if any application expects an acknowledgment.
  • For each application that expects an acknowledgment:
    • In the Inbound sender field, enter the caller identity (PI3) used by the application to connect. If you do not enter a caller identity, no acknowledgements are sent on this exchange.
    • Click on the ellipsis button ( ...) to select the community that sends the acknowledgment, and then select the connection string that corresponds to the back-end server which should receive the acknowledgment. This is how you select the delivery exchange that is used to send the acknowledgement.
  • An acknowledgment is sent to the Sender/Server pair, when the reception is completed and the corresponding incoming message is successfully unpackaged. This means that it is a protocol acknowledgment ( Interchange received the file). A receipt message is generated and sent through the selected integration delivery exchange.

Advanced tab

  • Back up the files that go through this transport – Indicates whether the system backs up copies of the messages it retrieves from the back end. This is required for the system to perform fail-over operations such as attempting to send messages again (retries) in case of a transport connection failure. Without backups, a message in process cannot be recovered if the server or a processing node stops or restarts. Backups are needed to resubmit messages to back-end applications or resend messages to partners.
  • Restrict maximum file size for this transport – Select this option to specify the maximum size of files a the exchange can handle.
  • If Interchange receives a file larger than the maximum, the file is rejected and a message is written to the events log.
  • Maximum file size – Enter the maximum file size in bytes. Do not use commas.
