File Polling from FTP Server.


We are using IS 6.1 to develop few Flow Services which are going to poll the files. As far as i know file polling port does not support file polling from remote server. We have to map network drive to get this done. In my case we are going to use some one else FTP server which is not in our domain. So what are the available option by which i can do file polling with FTP server?


Write a service to do so. The EDI packages, if you have them, have VAN-related services that could be used as a starting point. There may be some samples on Advantage too, but I’m not sure.

You can use Ftp services to login to the remote ftp server and get the files .once u have the files on your server , u can work with the data.
