Local Listener AS3 Service reference
- My External Address
- The IP address used to access your computer or server from the Internet. This is the address where the VersaLex application is installed and running.
- This can be either a fully qualified host name (recommended) or a static visible external IP address.
- You can use the Set Address button to set your external IP address.
- Contact your systems administrator if you do not know your external IP address or fully qualified host name.
- Alternatively, select the Use ‘My External Address’ From AS2 Service check box. The value from the AS2 Service panel will automatically be set in this field. This is the default setting.
Note: Since the External Address is only used by FTP Server, LexiCom users will always use the same External Address as defined for AS2 and will be able to change it.
- MDN Storage Folder
- The folder where Message Disposition Notifications (MDNs) are stored. By default this directory is pre-defined to be a subdirectory under the VersaLex directory tree. Click …, navigate to a new path and folder, and click Apply.
- Retain Message ID History
- The number of days message ID history is retained for checking for and reporting duplicate messages (with the same Message-ID header value) from your trading partners. The default is 5 days.
Working with MDNs
You can view MDNs received by remote hosts using the MDNs tab.
To view the details of any particular MDN entry in the table, either right-click on a specific row and choose the Display option, or double-click on any row to get a detail window containing the contents of the MDN.
The application appends tracking information to the MDN, including the Message Integrity Check (MIC) value it computed and the name of the file and the date and subject of the message that was sent. It also includes information about the sender and recipient of the message and how the message was assembled, for example, whether it was signed, encrypted, compressed, and so on.
You can copy this information to the Windows clipboard by clicking Copy on the bottom of display window. You can then paste contents, for example, into a new document or an email message. You can also print this information to a networked printer by clicking Print on the bottom of the display window, or by selecting any one entry on the MDN display (shown in the previous diagram) and right-clicking it and selecting Print from the menu.
