When we pass messages between channels we often use an acknowledgement script but I'm wondering if it's really doing anything for us. Are there advantages to having an acknowledgement even though the messages are just hopping from one port to the other in the same location?

It is a good practice to use acknowledgments with MLLP. One scenario that could be an issue would be if the receiving channel was stopped by someone that did not realize the sending entity was another channel.

If you are using REST connections then you may not need an acknowledgment.
