APPENDIX A Inventory


APPENDIX A Inventory

This appendix lists the files associated with the Faximum Messaging Server and provides a short explanation for each. Files marked with an asertisk (*) are part of the FMS+PLUS product (and not FMS).

Many of the executable files located in the bin and lib directories are further documented in APPENDIX D on page 113.


/etc/opt/faximum/faximum.conf

The faximum.conf file provides the master configuration files used by all of the FMS components. For detailed information on the contents of this file, please see "/etc/opt/faximum/faximum.conf File" on page 97.


/etc/faximum.lic

This file contains the software activation key that you need to enable the software.


/etc/init.d/faximum

The faximum start-up script is used to start the daemons associated with the FMS software (see "Daemons, Starting and Stopping" on page 31). This is actually a link to the /opt/faximum/etc/init.d.script file. Depending on the version of Linux or UNIX you have installed FMS on, these links may appear in other /etc directories such as /etc/rc.d/init.d, /etc/rc2.d, /etc/init.d/rc2.d, etc. and etc.


/opt/faximum/

bin/

The bin directory contains executable programs that can be usefully run apart from their use within FMS.

asciitiff

This file is a link to either fsasciitiff or pkasciitiff (see below).

fsasciitiff

This program is used to convert text (ascii) files into TIFF (i.e. fax) format. This version of the program uses the X11 Font Server to provide the necessary font bitmaps.

pkasciitiff

This program is used to convert text (ascii) files into TIFF (i.e. fax) format. This version of the program uses the font bitmaps found in the font/ directory (see below).

tiffcat *

This utility concatenates separate TIFF-F files into a single multi-page TIFF file.

tiffhp *

This utility converts TIFF-F files into HP PCL print streams suitable for printing faxes on printers that understand the HP PCL printer control language.

tiffls

This utility lists the directory information from a TIFF-F file. This utility can be used to analyse the structure of a TIFF file.

tiffps *

This utility converts TIFF-F files into PostScript print streams suitable for printing faxes on printers that support PostScript.

tifftiff

This utility reformats TIFF-F files into a form appropriate for faxing.

convert/

The convert directory contains the conversion scripts used by the Faximum Messaging Server to process text and attachments into TIFF-F (i.e. fax) format.

/etc/opt/faximum
