File Transfer setup

 

  • INTRODUCTION

Dualog File Transfer allows automatic file transfer between ship and shore regardless of the ship’s communication equipment.
Configuration can be done from shore. Each ship’s configuration is centrally managed with changes distributed and implemented automatically.
Full reporting of file delivery is available on shore using the Traffic Manager, and optionally using automatic e-mail notifications in case of delivery problems.
End-to-end file transfer between folders on the ship and folders in the office can be achieved using the File Transfer office client.

Connection Suite will automatically validate messages coming from shore to see if they match definition of datasync job. If the system regards the message to match a datasync definition the system will detach the attachment and put it into a defined folder.
