I need to connect to Windows server machine from talend and from there need to connect to another windows machine and need to list all the file names in the specified location. Is this possible in talend, could please let me know ASAP.
You can navigate file systems, SSH, Telnet, FTP.....you name it. So I would say the answer is yes. Unfortunately you will need to be a bit more specific to be told how you can do it.
Thanks for your reply.
I am having a windows server 2003 OS machine, from this machine we need to connect to another windows machine and need to get the list of files from the specified location.
Present we doing it manually,
1. Connecting to Windows server machine using Remote Desktop connection from my local machine.
2. After connecting to this machine from here we are connecting to another machine using Remote Desktop connection
3. And from this machine we are accessing the files.
This process should be done through talend. Will that be possible.
Not through remote desktop as you are currently doing it, but you can through telnet or SSH. You will need to make sure that these services are available on your Windows machines first. My assumption is that you cannot just access network drives.
Thanks for the reply.
What you said ok, but we don't have access to machines to install/configure SSH/Telnet.
So we have to connect through talend only. Is there any option.
Talend is just a data integration application. It makes use of protocols that are available to it for communication. It provides the "client" side functionality, but it cannot possibly be expected to provide the server side automatically, without any manual configuration. If it could, it would be the most awesome piece of hacking software available. Talend can act as a client for communicating in a multitude of ways, but you will need to configure your systems with services for it to use.
