About [k]-port

In short:

[k]-port is a service that monitors a directory (Outbox) and its subdirectories on your network. When files are put into these directories, the [k]-port service will transfer them to Kommunicera Communications via https/SSL.

After translation the [k]-port service will receive the files from Kommunicera Communications and place them in the corresponding directories in the directory Inbox on your network.

  • [k]-port for PIM and CMS (and other systems) (PDF): [1]

  • Click OK
  • Start the [k]-port service in the "Services" list
  • You are now all done


The program folder on the computer on which [k]-port is installed (e.g. C:\Program Files\Kommunicera\K-Port) contains a config file.

  • The [k]-port settings can be changed using a text editor.
  • For example, it is possible to change the period of time that a folder has to be in the Outbox before it is retrieved.
  • Stop and restart the [k]-port service to apply the settings.

1. Create a folder in the Outbox. Give it a project number, project name or similar name. (1)

2. Place the files to be delivered to Kommunicera in the folder

3. You are now all done!

  • After about 15 minutes (2) the folder is moved to the Spool folder. This means that we have started the transfer.
  • When the transfer process has been completed, the folder is moved to the Processed folder. If the folder is in the Processed folder, you know that we have received the files.
  • If an error occurs, the folder is moved to the Failed folder instead.
  • Our deliveries are placed in the Inbox and are named as agreed with you (usually the same name you used when you sent it to us).

(1) It is possible to use a name that has been used previously. The files will then be grouped under the same name when we receive them. 
If a new file that is sent has an identical file name to a previous delivery with the same folder name, the new file will be saved with its name + a date.
(2) Default setting. This can be changed by editing the config file and then restarting the service.
