Modernization, FoIP and Document Output Management Solutions for IBM i

If you purchased Development Tools, there is a module called LAN/API. Unlike API on the iSeries where you embed fax commands in the spool file, LAN/API looks for a parameter file or fax file. In this parameter file, you define the fax information like recipient and fax number. You also define the UNC path to the document you wish to fax. Once set up, FastFax monitors the folder you defined as the location where these parameter files live, delivers the document to fax, and processes them automatically.
LAN/API can be run in three different modes. 1.) Processor mode (recommended). You can define up to 3 UNC paths to be monitored for parameter files. 2.) Server mode. Runs on network file server and can only scan 1 path for parameter files. 3.) Client Executable. Runs on a PC and can only monitor one path for parameter file.
