I've had a suggestion that might work...
If I kept the SAMBA share going...
And had a script on W2K3 that woke up every 10 seconds and moved all contents across from the mapped drive to the local pick up directory..that might work.
but how do to this on Windows... i don't think windows has the equivelant of a Unix 'mv' command
I don't know Unix so I have to ask if you can have a scheduled task on the source server that would do the move to the Windows server.
Windows does have a command line parameter for moving files. It is a left over from the world of DOS. You can set up a "batch" file that has the command and then reference that file as a scheduled task. I have no idea how it will work with a unix server. The following is a sample of what I have on a Windows server.
The task 'run' command contains:
The 'bat' file itself contains:
move /y "\\dshsapoly4210a\4210a-vol3\Jetform\Print\*.dat" c:\JetForm\Central\Server1\Data
(as a single line)
This moves all DAT files from the source folder to the destination folder. The quotes around the source is because of the space in the folder name.
If everything seems to work but you get no reaction from the JetForm server, actually it may be the case that a CR (Carriage Return) is automatically inserted by Windows in the pipe.<br /><br />We solved this issue by setting this registry key to 1:<br />HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers\<your_JetForm_input_ queue>\LpdPrinterPassThorugh<br /><br />If you don't have this Key, just define it.<br /><br />Please let us know if this solved the issue.<br /><br />P.S.<br />We prefere to go with FTP in many cases as we can get rid of the overhead (printing is always slower) ;)<br />It happened that the UNIX-Windows queue got stuck and this is not easy to idenfity, so with FTP we solved the issue. Otherwise you have to restart the windows OutputCentral service.
It looks like i'll have the client drag the files down from the UNIX server, i've set up an account that has access to only the 'job' directory (The text files that comprise print jobs).
I'm using FTP voyager's schedular facility to do a 'move' of all files with the extension '*.let' down from the UNIX machine to the Adobe central server, this will run every 30 seconds.
Seems to work so far, I might have to look at increasing the frequency if there are delays in ad-hoc letter printing.
Some months later...
We installed AIRIES on HP UX 11.23 on ITANIUM and installed JetForm Central Server for HPX 5.5.
This facility in HP UX 11.23 allows PA-RISC code to run on ITANIUM Boxes, so far so good.
Jetform running just fine in this configuration.
