Aggregating content by date and time using EDpCloud

The following is a configuration that allows many machines to send content to a single remote machine. We decided to add a way to shorten the configuration for people who want to aggregate content into a single remote machine.

The %ip% will resolve to the sender’s IP address. The %date% will resolve to the current date. The %hour% resolves to the current hour. The %minute% will also resolve to the current minute. Note that the alias is a regular expression that is like a wild card to match a network address or a domain name.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<config name="Network_Configuration">

<link name="link1">
      <sender hostname="localhost" password="YourSecrets"
        alias="192.168.*|*.yourcompany.uk|*.yoursupplierfriends.com"
      />
      <receiver hostname="content.YourSiteName.com"
          storepath="c:\incoming\london\%date%\%hour%\%minute%"
          password="YourSecrets" 
      />
 </link>
</config>
