Dowloading files in background to local PC

Former Member

I have to download a file from application server to my local PC dialy. Usually it is taking more than 30 min. Now I am planning to write a program which will transfer the file from applicatin server to my local PC. This can't be executed in background due to non-availability of local resources in background.

I heard this thing can be solved by registering my local PC address thru SM59. Could any one provide details regarding this, ie how to register my local PC?

My thanks will be expereseed by rewarding the points.

Hello Ganesh,

I would suggest to implement a program, that downloads the given file to your front end, each time it is executed. Create a transaction that calls this program and define this transaction as your default start menu (see transaction SU3, tab 'Defaults' -> field 'StartMenu').

This Implies, that the download to your front end can be realized within the time specified by profile parameter rdisp/max_wprun_time.

Hope that helps...
