Testing an AS2 connection can be quite simple. We use the Telnet Command to test connectivity with Firewalls, Proxy Servers, and EXTOL Secure.
From a command line ( Windows/iSeries/Linux)
1. Unable to send to AS2 server from Behind Firewall
- Telnet <firewall address> <port number>
- ie. 192.168.1.1 4080
2. Unable to send data via AS2 Proxy server
- Telnet <proxy server address> <port number>
- ie. 192.168.1.1 5080
If a successful connection is made, the telnet screen should go “black” or “clear” and data prompts should disappear. This connection should also register in the AS2 server log.
