Connection properties

The following table describes AS2 connection properties:
Connection property
Description
Runtime Environment
The name of the runtime environment that contains the Secure Agent that you want to run the tasks.
URL
URL of the server that receives the messages. The URL syntax must refer to a valid server and location. The host name can be an IP address or a domain name. The port number is the port on which the AS2 server listens.
AS2 From ID
Name or ID of the sender. If the receiving server filters by this ID, the IDs must match.
Value is case sensitive and can contain 1 to 128 ASCII printable characters in length. The value cannot contain white spaces.
AS2 To ID
Name or ID of the recipient.
Value is case sensitive and can contain 1 to 128 ASCII printable characters in length. The value cannot contain white spaces.
Username
User name to connect to the remote AS2 server.
Password
Password to connect to the remote AS2 server.
Connection Timeout
Maximum number of seconds to wait when attempting to connect to the server. A timeout occurs if a successful connection does not occur in the specified amount of time.
If the value is 0 or blank, the wait time is infinite.
Default is 60 seconds.
Read Timeout
Maximum number of seconds to wait when attempting to read a file from the server. A timeout occurs if the file is not read in the specified amount of time.
If the value is 0 or blank, the wait time is infinite.
Default is 0 seconds.
Connection Retry Attempts
Number of times to retry connecting to the AS2 server if a successful connection does not occur. This setting applies to both the initial connection and any reconnect attempts due to lost connections.
If the value is blank, no retries are attempted.
Default is blank.
Connection Retry Interval
Number of seconds to wait between each connection retry attempt.
For example, to retry to connect up to 10 times with a five second delay between retries, set
Connection Retry Attempts
to 10 and
Connection Retry
Interval to 5.
If the value is blank, the interval is 0 seconds.
Default is blank.
Follow Redirects
Whether or not to follow redirect links when creating a connection.
Default is false.
User Agent
Value used in the message header to indicate what application created or sent the message.
Use Chunked Encoding
Whether or not to pre-calculate the length of the request or send the request in chunks. Pre-calculating the content length might slow performance when sending large files. However, not all AS2 servers support chunked encoding.
Default is false.
Client Certificate Alias
Alias of the key within the default keystore to use for client authentication when required by the receiving AS2 server.
SSL Context Protocol
Protocol to use when creating the SSLContext. The protocol that you specify depends on the security providers installed in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE).
In most cases, the default value of SSL is appropriate. However, for some IBM JRE implementations, the default value of SSL will not work if the server you are connecting to does not support SSLv3.
Default is SSL.
