port 22 is eough for ssh
if you use ftp in aft then port 21, if you select sftp then port 22 (port used by sshd on destination server)
ping is not neccesary
thanks Rasto, for your reply.
22 ssh port is enough to do transfer , but on which port or, AFT job get updated to the controlm server.
in this case Control-M server will only get the update via 22 port from the remote hosts as none of other ports and ping is not available.
i suppose nor source aix nor destination server has control-m agent installed - so either ssh request and file transfer is done via ssh (sftp) and only port that is used is 22 (request for ft job from control-m agent to port 22 on source server, file transfer from source server to port 22 on destinaton server)
Rasto, i will try with this. i think i shouldnt have any problem now .
