CFTCOM - Communication media

This topic describes the CFTCOM object and parameters. You can use this command to define the communication media used by Transfer CFT.

For a description of the object and CFTCOM concepts, go to CFTCOM communication media concepts .

As described in the CFTCOM concepts: Start here , you can set the communication medium to:

This topic describes how to define these communication types in Transfer CFT. First define the TYPE, and then define the corresponding communication media parameters.

TYPE=FILE

NAME = filename

Designates the communication file name.  

[WSCAN = {60 | n}] {1..3600}

Communication file scanning time (in seconds).

Determines the time taken for the Transfer CFT monitor to process a command.

The optimum value is a tradeoff between the desired response time and the computer’s workload.

TYPE=MBX

NAME = string

Designates the mailbox name.

TYPE=TCPIP

[ADDRLIST = (string1..64,string1..64…)]

List of authorized addresses with which you can connect to the communication medium (maximum 16 addresses).

A value beginning with the "#" character specifies a file in which each line represents an address.

Case Format Processing

ADDRLIST = 172.* 

Only clients whose IP addresses begin with 172 are authorized. 

ADDRLIST = *.axway 

Only clients whose host name ends with "axway" are authorized. 

ADDRLIST = (172.23.160.81, 172.23.160.82) 

Only clients whose complete IP addresses are indicated are authorized. 

ADDRLIST = #FileList 

The file contains the list of authorized addresses. 

[DISCTS = n]

Without a request , the time-out (in seconds) before freeing a channel opened by a client.

HOST = string1..64

IP address of the local resource

This address (expressed in string format) can be completed with one of the following:

  • The real IP address in notation point (ex: 192.9.200.10)
  • The logical name, HOSTNAME, associated with the real IP address
  • The value, ALL, specifying all the local network addresses.

PROTOCOL = { XHTTP | XHTTPS}

Request/reply protocol implemented on the TCP/IP layer:

  • XHTTP: HTTP protocol variant, property of Axway Software
  • XHTTPS: XHTTPS protocol, secured version of the XHTTP protocol.
    The security implemented does not include authentication.

PORT = n

Listening port on the networks defined in the HOST parameter.

Defining CFTCOM MBX

This table describes the parameters to define the CFTCOM object when the communication type is MBX.

Syntax: CFTCOM

Parameters

Description

MODE

Action to do in the parameter or partner base.

ID

Identifier of the CFTCOM command.

NAME

This is the communication filename.

Transfer CFT communication means.

Example

TYPE = MBX

CFTCOM

ID = IDCOM,

 

TYPE = MB,

 

NAME = <mbxname>

CFTCOM TCPIP

This table describes the parameters to define the CFTCOM object when the communication type is TCPIP.

Syntax: CFTCOM

ADDRLIST

 

This field defines a list of authorized addresses that you can use to connect to the communication media.

HOST

Networking IP address of the local resource.

ID 

Identifier of the CFTCOM object.
