Local Listener OFTP Service reference
- Default assigned Odette FTP values.
- Globally allow Incoming Destination (SFIDDEST) to differ from my User ID (SSIDCODE)
- Allows any incoming destination value to be accepted always.
- Globally allow Incoming Originator (SFIDORIG) to differ from partner User ID (SSIDCODE)
- Allows any incoming originator value to be accepted always.
- EERPs Storage Folder
- The folder that stores End-to-End-Responses (EERPs) and Negative-End-Responses (NERPs). Defaults to subdirectory under the VersaLex directory tree. You can click … to navigate to and choose a new folder.
- Retain Message ID History
- The number of days the application keeps historical data about messages to use when checking for duplicate messages from your trading partners. Default value is 5 days.
- Restarts Temp Folder
- A temporary working directory for incoming files. If a trading partner requests a restart of a previous incomplete transfer, the file restart position is determined based on the temporary payload and corresponding property file in this directory. The temporary payload files are encrypted, and the restart files are cleared when the transfer completes or 24 hours has passed. If the VersaLex application is being synchronized, the Restarts Temp Folder should be set to a shared location between all the synchronized instances of the VersaLex application because restart requests could come to any VersaLex instance.
Working with OFTP EERPs
Use the EERPs tab to view received end responses.
View the details of any particular EERP or NERP entry in the table by either right clicking on a specific row and choosing the Display option, or by double-clicking on any row to get a detail window containing the contents of the end response.
If an end response has not (yet) been received, the VersaLex application will display message tracking information, including the virtual filename, date/time, destination, originator, the host/mailbox, and the name and location of the file. If the message has errored out, the error code and description is also included.
This information can be copied to the Windows clipboard by clicking Copy at the bottom of display window. The contents can then be pasted, for example, into a new document or an email message. This information can also be printed to a networked printer by clicking the Print button on the bottom of the display window, or by selecting any one entry in the EERP table (shown in the previous diagram) and using the Print right-click menu option.
- Click the EERPs tab to display a table of responses.
- Right-click a row to display a drop down menu and select Display. Alternatively, double-click a row.
