BizTalk R2 - AS2 Encription Process RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    I worked with Covast AS2 and it's easy Configure AS2 Port and Certificate info.

     

    BizTalk R2-AS2 looks different, i think we have to configure on HTTP port.

     

    There is no information how to handle with certificates with AS2...like

     

    where we have to keep certificates(i'e covast AS2 there is dir)

     

    Properties like AS2 ID,Certificate,AS2 URL,PORT where we have to configure all this information.

     

    any document or suggetions are apprecited.

     

    Thanks

  • Monish,

     

    Log into your machine using the BTSService account credentials and then add the certificate using the mmc. You can also add the certificate using Internet Explorer under "Internet Options" > "Content" > "Certificates" when logged in using your BTSService credentials.

  • Hello!

     

    Do you have access to BizTalk R2 Documentation? AS2 section provides extensive information on AS2 feature setup and use.

    It has a lot of information on how to setup AS2, including descriptions, tutorials and walkthroughs.

     

    Thank you,

  • Yuri,

     

    Thanks for the details.  How do I add a cert to the personal store of the in-proc host user account? I am familiar with the mmc snap-in to view and modify certs in the Local Computer and Current User context but how do I get to the view of the in-proc user context? In my case, BizTalk is on a stanalone machine and my in-proc host user account is a local Windows account named BTSService.

     

    Thanks

    Monish

    Log into your machine using the BTSService account credentials and then add the certificate using the mmc. You can also add the certificate using Internet Explorer under "Internet Options" > "Content" > "Certificates" when logged in using your BTSService credentials.
