ipmerc IPMERC sends files to EasyLink public message service (also called Mercury 7500) for onward transmission to mailboxes on that network or to use other facilities that they offer. It can be directly connected via a leased line or can be used via a dialup line. Note that this version works ONLY via a terminal server (ie a Spider). IPMERC scans a directory and sends files to Mercury 7500. It also notes any replies and these are sent back to the sender who may be on a remote editorial system. The EasyLink address is EITHER the FIP header field DZ OR is the first line of text. IPMERC uses a setup file, normally tables/setup/EASYLINK, to get: attn:+++ - attn string for the modem if dialup reset:at&f\r - reset string for the modem if dialup init:ate0&d0\r - initialisation string if dialup dial:atdt8781111\r - dial string if dialup disc:ath\r - disconnect string for the modem id:22 logon password.third\r - EasyLink ID and logon string Input parameters are : Mandatory : -s : spider default: none -p : port default: none Optional : -q : queue in spool default: spool/2m7500 -l : do NOT log items out default: log all files out -t : sleep time for queue scan default: 5 secs -m : this is a modem connection NOT Leased Line default: LL -z : setup filename default: tables/setup/M7500 -v : print version no and exit Note that the destinations file, tables/sys/USERS, needs to have the following flags/fields set : for each fixed destination : gulfout= DP:fip2 DQ:2m7500 DC:sun DZ:19060005+ where fip2 is the sending Unixbox and DZ holds the called no. Plus if an error log is requred on another system (such as the Atex J11) this is called m7500log is the ErrorLog/MercMsgNo file log. m7500log= DP:edone6 DQ:dennis-usr DC:atex where edone6 is the name of the J11 (copyright) 2022 and previous years FingerPost Ltd.
