You set up the local task using the File-Channel endpoint as a target. The binary file created in this task is used as the source for one or more remote tasks using the File-Channel source endpoint.
The local task replicates data from a Qlik Replicate supported endpoint to the file channel. If you changed the default folder for storing data files (during the installation), then you must specify the location of the binary file created by the file channel. This location can be anywhere in your system. For more information on setting up a local task, see Using the File Channel as a target.
