Faximum Messaging Server, Configuring

See also "System Configuration" on page 195.

Operational Parameters

Minimum Free Blocks

This parameter specifies the minimum amount of free disk space that must be available on the file system containing the FMS Spool Directory before FMS will answer incoming fax calls. This prevents incoming faxes from consuming all available disk space with the resulting problems with the general operation of the FMS system.

Minimum Idle Fax Lines

This parameter only applies to multi-line FMS systems and limits the number of lines that can be used at the same time. This parameter prevents all available fax lines from being used to send faxes thus leaving no lines free to handle incoming calls.

Maximum Number of Retries

This parameter tells the FMS fax scheduler how many attempts to make to send a fax before deleting the request and reporting it as failed.

Delay Between Retries

This parameter tells the FMS fax scheduler how many minutes to wait before retrying a fax that has not yet been successfully sent. Obviously if the server is busy handling other requests it may take more than the number of minutes specified by this parameter before the fax is actually retried.

Fax Resolution

Most fax machines permit faxes to be sent at either standard (approx. 98 dpi vertically and 204 dpi horizontally) or fine (approx. 196 dpi vertically and 204 dpi horizontally) resolution. This parameter specifies which resolution is to be used for faxes sent by the FMS.

Company Identification Parameters (FMS Only)

The following table lists the fax identification information that can be specified. Note that under US law it is mandatory to set this information prior to sending faxes using the FMS (for more information on this requirement, please see http://www.faximum.com/fms/uslaw).

The parameters: Company Name, Address Lines 1, Address Line 2, Address Line 3, and Address Line 4 are used on the cover sheet that is sent with every fax. The company name is also used on the top-of-page banner that appears at the top of every faxed page (unless another top-of-page banner is explicitly specified).

Top-of-Page Banner

This parameter specifies the top-of-page banner that appears at the top of every faxed page. If this parameter is left blank then the FMS will use a default banner.

The following variables may be used in this parameter:

Variable

Description

$p

the current page number

$t
