AS2Box: Your Managed AS2 Gateway

You have to exchange files/messages using AS2 with your trading partner tomorrow, and you do not know the AS2 (RFC 4130) transport protocol. On the other hand, you have experience transferring files/messages with FTP or HTTP (WebDAV).

Then, AS2Box is the solution to your problem!

An AS2Box is a simple folder structure with an "incoming" and an "outgoing" folders, which you can access via FTP or WebDAV.

We manage the AS2 connectivity with your trading partners.

The messages that your trading partner sent to your AS2Box will be received into your "incoming" folder, while the messages you upload to your "outgoing" folder will be picked up and sent to your trading partner.

You can directly go to and fill the registration/configuration form, or send me an e-mail to if you have any questions/remarks.

Friday, October 1, 2010, how does it work?

Thanks to Mathias from Australia, who asked me a few questions about, I have started to write some detailed documentation explaining how it is working.

It might be the first step to the complete opening of the source...

Have a look at the Architecture Wiki page and give me some feedback at, or just comment this post ;-)
