Internet data transfers allow you to import or export sales and performance data within your chain or to a corporate office.

To configure this, you'll need to make sure that the router is configured to forward incoming requests to "port 2235" to the computer running your Internet Server.

1. Navigate to: Setup -> Communications -> Internet, click the "Add" button and assign a name for the connection.
