General Tab

Use this tab to configure main parameters for connection to RightFax server and for the captured faxes.

Option Description
Connection This group of settings contains main parameters for connection to RightFax server.
Server name Enter the address of the RightFax server. It is mandatory to fill out this text box.
User Name Enter the user name to connect to the RightFax server.
User Password Enter the password to connect to the RightFax server.
NT Authentication Select this check box to use Windows Authentication for connection to the RightFax server. In this case the User Name and the User Password text boxes are disabled and the current system account is used. If this check box is not selected, it is mandatory to enter User Name and User Password.
Note: For Windows authentication to work correctly, you need to configure the Service Manger. In the Log On tab of the Service Manager, select This account, browse for your domain name for Windows authentication and enter the correct password.
Capture This group of settings contains settings for captured files.
Work directory Enter the path to the working directory where files will be copied before processing. You can click to select the path.
Keep files Select the options in this group to keep processed or rejected files.
Processed Enter the path to the directory where processed files will be kept. You can click to select the path.
Rejected Enter the path to the directory where rejected files will be kept. You can click to select the path.
Synchronization This group of settings allows you to specify the parameters for synchronization of several instances of the component that try to capture faxes from the same box. Without synchronization, components could capture faxes which were just captured by another instance of the component.

The synchronization is performed by regulating access to a table on an Microsoft SQL Server. Every act of capturing a fax is preceded by locking the table and followed, after the component processes the fax, by unlocking it. If the table is already locked, which means that another component is capturing faxes, the component waits until it is unlocked.

It is recommended to use this option when you are using multiple workflows with the component.

Note: The order of locking the specified SQL Server table by different component instances is arbitrary rather than First In, First Out. If two instances of the component are waiting for a lock over the table, then either of these two instances can be the first to obtain the lock.

With that said, it is recommended to specify different synchronization tables for different fax boxes on the RightFax server. This ensures that each fax box is checked by the component on a regular basis.

SQL Server Enter the identifier for the SQL Server instance that will be used for synchronization. This is typically in the format hostname/instanceID for a named instance of SQL Server.
Database Enter database name.
Table Enter name of the table.
Note: The specified table should not be a system table of the RightFax server. It should be a separate table created in the SQL Server database to be used only for synchronization purposes.
NT Authentication Select this check box to use Windows Authentication to connect to the instance of SQL Server. In this case the User Id and Password text boxes are disabled and the current system account is used. If this check box is not selected, you must enter a User Id and Password for a SQL Server account.
User Id Enter user ID to connect to the specified instance of SQL Server.
Note: For correct work of the synchronization, the specified user ID should have the SELECT permission on the specified table.
Password Enter the password to connect to the instance of SQL Server.
