WHINT RemoteDirectory Checker



This Adapter Module is checking for a file (e.g. blocker) at a remote location. When the file is found, the processing of the communication channel (of any type running on the Adapter Engine) is stopped. The solution is useful e.g. if you want to avoid the transfer of files if the target directory is not empty.
