To create a gateway, you have two main options:

  • Create the gateway from scratch.
  • Duplicate an existing gateway that you already created, or from the Babelway catalogue.

You can access this choice by clicking on Create New in the gateways list screen, or directly from the channel detail screen.

Create a new gateway

To create a gateway, first you have to select the type of gateway that you want to use (Email, FTP, AS2, HTTP).
