Directory/File Transport Configuration
The eiConsole’s Directory or File Transport (Adapter) is used to place files into a Directory, either on the Local Machine or somewhere on a Network File System.
The user is presented with a graphical interface in the eiConsole. To configure a Directory/File Transport, select Directory/File from the Transport Type drop-down.
