How to set up the communication channel for third party idoc

I am trying to send an idoc from an sap 4.6c system to an third party system. The third party system is supporting idcos with trfc.

My problem is to set up the communication channel in the integration builder (configuration) for the third party system. The idoc is waitung in XI to transport.

My settings are:

adapter type: idoc

transport protocol: idoc

message protocol: idoc

adapter engine: integration engine

rfc destination: xyz (is working fine)

interface version: sap release 4.0 or higher

port: ??

sap release 46c

My problem is the port. should i set up a port in idx1? But the third party is not an sap system and so i dont have a client.

On the xi i have defined a port in transaction we21 (transactional rfc) for the third party with my rfc destination xyz. But if i enter that port in communication channel i got error messages.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Christian,

yes, you have to mainztain that port in idx1.

First ypi load the rfc-metadata from an SAP referenzsystem and afterwards copy this metadata to the third party port.

For further details check the onlinedocumentation "IDoc Processing with the IDoc Adapter" XI -> runtime -> adapter

Good luck,
