IP Listner

webMethods Integration server provides HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and Email Listener.But one our partner wants to have communication on IP protocal, that means i guess we should have IP Listner. Does webMethods as it is supports IP Listner. If so,how do i configure it. If not please advice how do achieve this.


If TCP/IP is what you mean, you will be required to create a socket listener (probebaly using java sockets). There are quite a few samples on the internet that demonstrate the use of java sockets to send and receive data.

IP based communication can mean a lot of things. So, you probably should try to understand your partner’s requirements in greater detail. HTTP, FTP, SMTP and HTTPS are all protocols that are a layer above TCP/UDP (which in turn are a layer above IP) in the protocol stack.
