To exchange files with a remote partner, configure your organization's file servers associated with the File Integration Service to securely communicate with the partner's servers. The File Integration Service is a Secure Agent service that runs advanced file transfer protocols.
For each remote partner that exchanges files with your organization, you create a file server user account. You define the protocol accessibility for the file server user, that is, AS2, HTTPS, SFTP, or various combinations of these servers. A home directory is created or assigned to each file server user. You can define network shared locations to the user's home directory, and define folder level and file level permissions for the user.
