File Share endpoints contain metadata to configure the Thru Node, which is a managed file transfer (MFT) agent that will be installed on your server. Configurations define file flows inside your local area network (LAN) or between your LAN and Thru’s cloud. These configurations could require file processing such as compression, renaming, encryption, etc.
This resource uses the SMB/CIFS protocol or a native path to a network mount to connect to other file systems including Windows, Linux or Unix.
You have to set up a Thru Node before adding your first File Share endpoint.
