Tony,

First, my company develops & markets a competing product (Fax 
Server/401 & Unifier), but from what I have heard about fax/400 (the 
IBM product) is you have to execute their "send" command.  Eg: in your 
fax/print prompt, you would move it to an outq if they want to print, 
or execute the send command if they want to fax.  This also means you 
would have to remove the headers from the spool file (where it is 
being faxed to, etc) and pass them to the dialog.

You could also write a program that monitors FAXQ outq, parses the 
splf's extracting the headers and building a new splf without the 
headers and then calling the fax400 send command.  But that would be a 
fair amount of work.

Subject:        Facsimile/400

Can anyone give me a couple pointers on a "correct" way to set up
Fax/400?  I'm currently replacing a Biscom/EDS fax solution, works 
good
just not Y2K compliant, we just upgraded a client to from a 510 to a 
720
and ordered Facsimile/400 rather than hassle with the upgrade of the
Unix-based fax server pc.  This eliminates a "faxserver" pc and puts 
all
the stuff back in the AS400. (where it belongs)
Current implementation:
* an outq FAXQ which a program "scans" for spoolfiles and moves them 
to
the PC
* the printer file contains a FAXHEADER record which contains control
codes for fax#, etc
* Based on a "fax or report(f/r) _" prompt in the program a cl for the
"generate" subprogram either overrides to faxq or not and faxheader
record is written (or not) at each fax# change.

It looks like Fax400 is cl-driven, ie., you'd have to call a cl at 
EACH
"fax# change".

Any advice will be appreciated, ie., how did you do it??
