Preferences tab

On this tab set the location of where the server stores the program files for the job that is processing.

Option Description
Home directory The root directory where the server creates all temporary directories and files necessary for controlling device related traffic. The server must have proper permission to write to this directory.
Port number Enter the port number used by the EFI SendMe Client to communicate with the EFI SendMe Server (for example, 8086).

This port number must match the port number that is used in configuring the EFI SendMe Client computer.

Note: f the client is having problems communicating with the server, check the port setting on the server to make sure that it matches the port setting on the client. Also make sure there that there is no firewall blocking the specified port.
Keep These options allow the workflow to retain processed or rejected files. The service must have sufficient rights to access this directory.
  • Processed files — The directory where the captured files (send to folder/application files) are stored upon completion of successful routing. If you turn this attribute on, all files are stored into the Processed Files directory when the service successfully completes writing them into the destination location.

    Keep in mind that if this is option is enabled, a copy of every file that has been routed successfully is saved on this directory. Make sure that proper disk storage is allocated for this directory.

  • Rejected files — This folder is used for storing any files that failed to store into the final destination location.

    There are many reasons for these failures. You can research them by examining the server application log file entries. It is recommended to have a secondary process take this folder as an input and notify a system administrator of a failure.
