Section 17



4.3.7 At a minimum, the designated site should be accessible via the

public Internet. This specifically does not preclude location of

the designated site on a private intranet as long as the

designated site is accessible via the public Internet.


4.3.8 The minimum acceptable protocol should be HTTP. All sending and

receiving parties should be capable of sending and receiving the

HTTP versions supported by NAESB WGQ.


4.3.9 For GISB EDI/EDM and FF/EDM, there is a time stamp (HTTP

Timestamp) that designates the time that a file is received at the

designated site. The receiving party should generate a timestamp

upon successful receipt of the complete file and send as an

immediate response to the sending party. The timestamp should be

generated by Common Gateway Interface (CGI) of the receiving

party, prior to further processing by the CGI.


4.3.10 The time-stamp should be included in the HTTP response back to

the sender of the original HTTP transaction. The server clock

generating the time-stamp should be synchronized with the

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) time in

order to mitigate discrepancies between the clocks of the sender

and receiver.


4.3.11 The HTTP response will be sent to the sending Internet Protocol

(IP) address. Other response documents will be returned to the

official designated site defined in the Trading Partner



4.3.12 As a minimum, within a trading partner agreement, one designated

site for receipt should be identified for each trading partner.

That site should be identified by a specific Uniform Resource

Locator, (URL). This does not preclude multiple designated sites

being mutually agreed to between trading partners.


4.3.13 The sender should make three attempts to complete a unit of work.

After three failed attempts, it will be considered a failure.
