First try to use the SFTP server by SFTP'ing directly (not using PI), this should generate your private/public key. Or the SSH server you installed (when installed probably already created it).

You'll be promted to accept the public key from the SFTP Server/client your attempting to connect to (Say yes). Then do a quick command or attempt to put a doc or pull a doc as a quick test (whatever you need to do).

I believe the seeburger adapter is similar to the FTPS configuration, otherwise seeburger should have some doc on the config.

Good Luck!

Have you tried to do it manually? Were you able to pull or drop files onto the server?

Is the Comm Channel configured to pull anything or specifically named files?

Hi Rocco,

I have configured it to pull a specific xml file "test.xml" from a directory which is in shared mode.

But when i start the channel i should ideally get "Message processing started message" rite?

I am not getting any message like that. Its full blank.

Please Advice,

In your SFTP Sender channel, you have a table called 'Scheduler'. Check that you have scheduled it correctly.

Enter a 'X' in the column of each day that the channel is supposed to poll and enter start and end times as well as the interval.

Make sure you have configured a user with sufficient permissions for the key storage (see sftp manual and master configuration guide). Then simply connect to the server - afterwards you should find the key of the server in the pending store of your sftp adapter (most likely the SSH_hosts keystore view).

Hi,

When you have SSH setup,you can connect to SSH(SFTP) server using third party adapters,

I think you need to deploy/copy the keystore details in PI,do you have See Burger adapter withyou??
