|Internet Transaction Server|
Interface between the R/3 System and the Internet.
The Internet Transaction Server (ITS) allows Internet and intranet users to communicate directly with the R/3 System by running standard transactions, function modules, and reports as Internet applications.
When a user starts an application from a Web browser, the request is passed to the Web server. The Web server transmits the request to the ITS, which sets up a connection to the R/3 System. When a connection has been established, the ITS controls the communication and the data exchange between the R/3 System and the Web server.
The ITS consists of two main components - the WGate (Web gateway) and the AGate (application gateway).
