Since version 3 of eBiss 3.0.134, data can be retrieved from or sent to a WebDAV server.

The license-managed eBiss module contains both a WebDAV receive channel and a WebDAV transmit channel. You can use these channels to connect a directory using the WebDAV protocol.

eBiss.WebDAV uses PROPFIND and GET requests to retrieve files from the directory that was previously entered as a URL in the WebDAV receiver channel and then put them into the stored message basket.

In the opposite direction, eBiss.WebDAV transmits messages from a message basket via the WebDAV send channel to a directory in a stored URL.

Would you like more information about our WebDAV module? We are happy to advise you.

Relevant for customers who have booked one or more DataStream(s) or have several own eGate accounts.

General: Forwarding rules can be set to active/inactive.

The rule action “None” (formerly “inactive”) can now be used to exclude individual users from rules.


Account A with:

Action: None when messages are sent from/to Account B
Action: Copy, for all outgoing and incoming messages
The first rule specifically ensures that the second rule is not applied to messages with reference to account B.

Note: A prerequisite for using forwarding rules is the granting of a forwarding permission. For the above example, this means that a forwarding permission for Account A must first be granted on Account B. (With DataStreams this permission is granted by us.)

The description of the functions in eGate can be found in eGate in the menu Information/User Information or can be opened here as PDF:

Please note the following when sending messages via eGate.

  • server: (
  • Encrypted transmission:
    • Send via TLS (SMTP): Port 25 or Port 8025
    • Receive via TLS (POP3): Port 995
  • Unencrypted transmission:
    • Send (SMTP): Port 25 or Port 8025
    • Receive (POP3): Port 110 or Port 8110

If you want to make sure that the communication with eGate works over the selected ports, please proceed as follows:

  • By establishing a Telnet connection (via a terminal cmd.exe) you can determine whether the eGate service is accessible from the internal network.
    • Request: telnet 25
    • Response: 220 egate4 ESMTP server
  • The connection could be successfully established via the above port (25) if the server returns the response listed above.
  • If you receive a negative response, please check the rules in your firewall.

The administrative e-mail address is used by eGate to notify account owners about transfer errors or maintenance work. The address is not a shipping and/or receiving address for EDI data. (However, the same e-mail address may be stored as the administrative and EDI gateway address.)The administrative e-mail address should preferably not be personal, but should be e.g. .

When you open a message in a message folder by clicking on the ID, the message details open. There are four tabs here: General, Message, Raw Header, and Delivery Report.


In the General tab you can view various information about the message. From whom to whom did the message go, what is the subject, when did the message arrive in eGate, what is the status, how big is the message. In principle, the same information you find in the message overview.

In the Message tab, you can view and download the original message in the original format and in DAT format. If you are sending several EDI files in one message, you will always see the first one here.

In the Raw Header tab you can see the technical header details of the message.

In the DeliveryReport tab you can see the technical transmission protocol of eGate.

Situation: I am Pranke customer. My new EDI partner is not an eGate customer and told me his GLN. This does not correspond however with the GLN of its enterprise appearing in the participant search

Solution / Description:

If the GLN in the participant search is different from the GLN named by the contact person of the new EDI partner, this may be because the partner has several GLNs, but only one eGate account with an EDI communication address.

Usually, even large organizations have only one EDI communication address, where the EDI data is exchanged and then distributed within the organization. Only if several such communication addresses exist to external parties, several participant numbers must also be created. Usually it is not necessary to create further participants for the same company. It is therefore necessary to clarify with the person responsible for EDI at the new EDI partner whether an additional participant (with an additional communication address to be monitored) is necessary. The GLN appearing in the participant search is the participant’s UNB dispatch address, which is also linked to the communication address known to us.

In exceptional cases, several GLNs can also be stored with a partner, please consult our support for this.

I am a Pranke eGate customer and would like to receive a message I have already received again from eGate.
