I am seeking a solution that will enable us to convert messages from edge systems that speak XDR/XDM into SMTP for delivery to other systems via Direct and to receive SMTP messages via Direct and translate them to XDR/XDM for delivery to edge systems. I installed Connect with Direct 5.0 on our test server. That test server is also running the Java RI of Direct, including James Mail server and DirectDNS. I am trying to figure out if I can use this Connect service to accomplish this. The documentation says “CONNECT leverages the Direct configuration module from the ONC-sponsored JAVA Direct Reference Implementation (RI) v 3.01.” Does this mean I can integrate my Connect installation with our existing Direct installation or that Connect uses modules from the Java RI? Currently, I manage domains via the Config-UI that is included with the DirectDNS in the Java RI. Do I need to replace this with the Domain manager in Connect or does Connect work with the DirectDNS we have currently installed?
I am not familiar with Connect or with XDR/XDM. If anyone can provide guidance here, it will be greatly appreciated.
