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.

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?? -- William A.(Tony) Corbett email@example.com http://www.asresources.com http://www.cbt400.com +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +--- +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com +---
