TELNET Check Button :: To check if partner had White-listed/allowing our IP address

Currently, when configuring AS2 profile for partner, we will have to go back to partner and check whether his firewall team had white-listed our IP address if we are unable to connect to their server. This can be known only after we start with the testing process. If we have an option in inflight enabled which does telnet and display the results there itself will give us a confirmation and we can directly ask partner about it. The back and forth emails and the wait time can also be reduced.

How will this idea be used?

Inflight can be enhanced to have this option enabled to check if the Telnet is working fine, we can directly know whether we are able to connect to partners system.

This can help in reducing the time taken to setup an AS2 connection and avoid multiple emails and the wait time.
