How to Configure a File Send Handler


The File send handler is the host instance on which the File send adapter runs. This topic explains how to change the default configuration of the File send handler.

The BTSNTSvc.exe service hosts the File send handler. For the File send handler to send messages to a specified location, this service needs to have read/write privileges for the specified folder on the file system or network share.

Use the following procedure to change the host with which the File send handler is associated.


Each host can have only one send handler associated with it.
