pyAS2 0.3.4

A pythonic AS2 application for file tranfers.

pyAS2 is an AS2 server/client written in python and built on the django framework. The application supports AS2 version 1.2 as defined in the RFC 4130. Our goal is to provide a native python library for implementing the AS2 protocol. It supports Python 2.6-2.7.

pyAS2 includes a set of django-admin commands that can be used to start the server, send files as a client, send asynchronous MDNs and so on. It also has a web based front end interface for configuring partners and organizations, monitoring message transfers and also initiating new transfers.
