Secure Ad Hoc Transfer Module System Requirements and Installation Prerequisites

The Secure Ad Hoc Transfer (SAT) module version 3 has been tested on Windows XP Professional, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 (Standard, Enterprise, and Datacenter editions) x86-64, and Windows 7 and requires the following:

Before installing the SAT module, the following tasks must be completed:

To test the connection

  1. On the IIS server, open a command prompt.

  2. Type telnet <IP_address> <port_number> then press ENTER. For example type:

telnet 192.168.20.123 1100

If EFT Server is not reachable, the Telnet response is Connect failed.

Secure Ad Hoc Transfer Deployment Methods

The Secure Ad Hoc Transfer (SAT) Module is installed on the IIS server computer. The IIS server computer can be on the same server computer where EFT Server is running, or on a separate computer.

Common Deployment Methods

The architectural diagram below demonstrates this setup with EFT Server and IIS both on separate boxes. It also assumes the use of the DMZ Gateway; without it, you would need to configure the solution differently, so that recipients can reach EFT Server.

  1. The sender, inside your network, connects to the web page provided by IIS running the Secure Ad Hoc Transfer module page.

  2. Secure Ad Hoc Transfer on IIS then offloads the file to EFT Server, creates a notification message, and sends that directly to the recipient through your SMTP server.

  3. The recipient connects using the link-back https hyperlink to EFT Server to download the available files and, if applicable, uploads files back to EFT Server for later pick-up by the originator (sender).
