Target Trading Partner Update

February 26, 2008

AS2 NOTICE FROM TARGET CORPORATION – URGENT! Trading Partner Update

Target’s IP address change for all inbound AS2 transmissions.

What:

Target Corporation will be changing the IP address for its inbound Business-to-Business URL AS2PROD.TARGET.COM.

When:

Effective October 5, 2007 at 12:00 AM CST

Details:

Target Corporation’s IP address to which our URL resolves will change for all inbound AS2 transmissions.

Current IP address is 161.225.132.60

New IP Address: 161.225.136.134

This change will NOT impact the majority of Target’s Trading Partners. However, changes may be required for some partners with specific configurations.

 

These include:

    • Partner configurations that reference Target’s IP address, instead of its standard B2B URL.
    • Partners with some older AS2 solutions that may require a manual refresh or recycle to receive the URL address change.
    • Partners with specific network firewall requirements that manage external connections by IP address.

Partner changes should be made between the hours of 1:00 AM and 9:00 AM CST on Friday, October 5th. Target will continue to accept connections on the old address for a period of one (1) week. Any partners that continue to use this address after this time will be unable to send documents to Target Corporation.

Note that the IP address used for Target’s outbound data transfers will NOT change.
