sffmail - to read from stdin sffmail -o queuename sffmail -h FipHdr information Simple program to read in stream of data and stuff it on disk. It is used in two main areas - capturing email inbound and capturing file sent via the W4 module. When used for receiving mail sent from an email server - usually kicked off by 'sendmail' - then an entry in '/etc/aliases' is required for EACH logon tracked : fip: "| /fip/bin/sffmail -o mail_store -h RZ:fip" It is a good idea to add a FipHdr field - like RZ in the above example - containing the actual logon as mail from ListServers etc do not usually have a single address. For most recent versions of sendmail, you will need to reload aliases once you have modified it using something like : /usr/lib/sendmail -bi or /usr/sbin/newaliases and on rs6000 refresh -s sendmail Please check your particular system what is required. We can also 'sffmail' for receiving files from the browser using W4 using the '-w' switch. Input switches : -e : do NOT add all environment variables as FipHdr fields default: yes -E : add all environment variables as FipHdr fields default: yes *note this option was changed in version 01s to ALWAYS put out the envs -o : output file path and queue default: spool/xsmtp -h : Fip Header information default: none -h "#DU:mailsort#SC:ascii#SN:\$e\$y\$i\$d\$z" -w : use with w4 incoming files default: no -l : log incoming to fip LOG default: no -m : For w4, message to send back if no message file default:<HTML><Head></HEAD><BODY>Thank you for \\SV from \\SA - reference \\SN</BODY></HTML> -M : For w4 name of a file of FipSeq to send back default: /fip/web/template/recvfile.answer Note old versions (pre 01f) used a default of /fip/web/setup/w4.incoming.answer recvfile.answer uses a stylesheet /fip/web/pages/css/recvfilex.css -r : For w4 multiple files - filename of the TOP -R : For w4 multiple files - filename of the TAIL -d : folder into which we can put the raw files. default: none use this for debugging -u : default DU if none specified (mainly for W4 traffic). def: w4remoteUnverified -z : name of parameter file in tables/mail default: CHECK.MIME -v : version and exit For those switches with parameters, the parameter MUST be separated by a space. FipHdr fields filled in are : For W4 - SP - REMOTE_ADDR of the sendert SN - Name given by sender ST - Content-type SW - Full Path of file sent on sender's box SV - filename on sender's box SA - Logon S1 - Publication of that Logon (if there is one) S2 - Section of that Logon (if there is one) S3 - UserType of that Logon (if there is one) S4 - HTTP Host - proxy server S5 - IPaddress of the sender S6 - Receiving system hostname S7 - Receiving system Protocol S8 - realname/logon S9 - localhost name E* - (optional) any mime headers in 'x-(yyy)-SU: (spc) (data)' format where yyy is the string in the xmime-key: parameter PLUS a multitude of date and time fields (the 'HX's) PLUS any field with a name="FIP-XX" in the template is added to the FipHdr PLUS any mime headers in 'x-fip-SU: (spc) (data)' format If there is no DU for ipwheel to match, a default is used - "w4remoteUnverified" (from version 01p) eg <input type="hidden" name="FIP-DU" value="remote2cci"> <input type="hidden" name="FIP-SU" value="w4remote"> <input type="radio" name="FIP-WB" value="holding" checked> <input type="input" name="FIP-WK" value="" size=15> <input type="input" name="FIP-WN" value="" size=30> <input type="input" name="FIP-WI" value="" size=5> Note there is also an (optional) parameter file with a list of mime-types to allow or disallow. The parameter file is in tables/mail/CHECK.MIME unless specified otherwise using the '-z' input switch. The syntax for the parameters are in the normal Fip standard and the keywords are : ; comment round-robin: (number) default: none round-robin-fiphdr: (2 letter FipHdr field) default: none Round-Robin the output files and add the RR number to the fipHdr. Both parameters are required - the Number is the MAXimum. eg to leave the output in folder1 to folder9 round-robin:9 round-robin-fiphdr:RR and a suitable output folder might be /fip/spool/xchg\RR Note that the round-robin number is NOT added automatically to any output folder - ie you MUST specify a FipHdr as in /fip/spool/2xml\RR save-data-path: (pathname for data) This puts the data of the incoming data in a file in this folder and creates a FipHdr file that contains 2 FipHdrs containing the full path/filename SX: and FTP_EXTERNAL_FILE: (ipbalan uses SX and ipftp uses FTP_EXTERNAL_FILE) eq save-data-path:/fip/data/jpegs/\$e\$y\$i\$d/ Use this for big files that you do not want to copy around the Fip Spool area. ** if specified, ALL non-standalone files will be split like this ** default-allow-mime-types: yes/no/allow/disallow Make the default to either allow all (except those specifically disallowed) or vice versa default is yes - ie allow everything in. yes or allow are the same no or disallow are the same allow-empty-mime-type: yes/no/allow/disallow default is yes to allow all files with NO mimetype specified to be received. yes or allow are the same no or disallow are the same allow-mime-type disallow-mime-type Specify the mimetype you want to accept or reject There can be up to 100 allow/disallow-mime-types eg allow-mime-type:text/plain There are no defaults Note only the string entered is checked, so : allow-mime-type:text will allow ANY text variant - text/plain, text/html, texturally/wonderful. Normally, if you want to control the types of files received, then : either 1. make the default ALLOW and list the types to DISALLOW default-allow-mime-type:yes disallow-mime-type:application/msword disallow-mime-type:binary or 2. make the default DISALLOW and list the types to ALLOW default-allow-mime-type:no allow-mime-type:text/plain allow-mime-type:text/rtf allow-mime-type:x-fip-quark Example : ; DISallow all by default and explictly allow a couple default-allow-mime-types:no ; nothing there - reject it ! allow-empty-mime-types:no ; list of those we want allow-mime-type:text allow-mime-type:image/jpeg allow-mime-type:application/rtf allow-mime-type:application/x-macbinary allow-mime-type:application/mac-binhex40 allow-mime-type:application/octet-stream allow-mime-type:application/zip allow-mime-type:application/x-msexcel The following parameters may also be specified and are the equivalent for the same inputs in the data stream. extra-fiphdr: Add these extra FipHdr fields to each inbound file w4-default-dest: (Fip DU or destination in sys/USERS) Send all files from senders who have NOT logged on to this destination. default is 'w4remoteUnverified' filebefore fileafter contents of these files will be added to the output data - before or after the main data. The following 'w4-message*' parameters allow replacement of the standard messages returned to the client. (if marked 'file', it is the name of a file in web/templates) either w4-message-file file - complete HTML page template for a single incoming file or w4-message FipSeq - complete HTML page in FipSeq or w4-message-top file - top response template w4-message-meta file - first response - poss with FipHdrs and textarea text w4-message-item file - template for a each FILE sent w4-message-missing file - if there were NO files send/received (using ..-top and ..-tail) w4-message-tail file - tail response template w4-message-nothing FipSeq - no files message (if no .-top) w4-message-no-files file template for 'No Files' (if no .-top) w4-message-bad-authentication file template for 'No Files' (if using chk-fipid or check-apikey) w4-message-invalid-mimetype default is ST:<font color=red>** File ignored - MimeType disallowed - \\ST, please resend in acceptable format</font> w4-message-hr FipSeq replacement for <hr> between files w4-log-accepted: (FipSeq) Fip Item log line for files accepted and forwarded on to other parts of Fip default is no string w4-log-rejected: (FipSeq) Fip Item log line for rejected files default is "** File ignored from \\SU - MimeType disallowed - \\ST" rawque: (FipSeq) Leave a copy of the incoming file in this folder eg rawque:/fip/data/raw.data/\$e\$y\$i\$d_sffmail default: none package-uid-fiphdr: (2 letter FipHdr) package-que: (FipSeq folder name) package-queue: (FipSeq folder name) package-name: (FipSeq file name) balance-package: (balance group for package) hash-in-fiphdr: (FipSeq chr) default:none A hash/pound (#) in a FipHdr field is mapped to this chr Normally hashes are end-of-field in a FipHdr. So it needs to be mapped to something else and we changed it here on outbound. response-mime-type:( mimetype of the response back) default: text/html xmime-key: (string) xmime-key0: (string) .. xmime-key9: (string) Save any mime headers including those starting 'x-(key)-(subkey):(data) These are saved in E0-9 eg xmime-key3:x-boat-anchor xmime-key5:x-boat-engine data = x-boat-anchor:long, blue x-boat-engine:steam gives E3:long, blue E5:steam Note you can also use the FipSeq filter for the same effect filter:E3 ZE X-BOAT-ANCHOR:* filter:E5 ZE X-BOAT-ENGINE:* in this case, add them to the FipHdr with 'extra-fiphdr:E3:\E3\nE5:\E5\n' fiphdr-fipid:(2 letter FipHdr field to hold the FipId) use this to save the FipId (it requires the Fipid to be in the HTTP_REFERER environment variable) fiphdr-setup: (2 letter code) FipHdr field for Setup field fiphdr-subset: (2 letter code) FipHdr field for SubSet field fiphdr-service: (2 letter code) FipHdr field for Service field fiphdr-uid: (2 letter code) FipHdr field for Uid field fiphdr-action: (2 letter code) FipHdr field for Action or Variant field fiphdr-api-key: (2 letter code) FipHdr field for API-KEY fiphdr-api-code: (2 letter code) FipHdr field for API-CODE fiphdr-api-response: (2 letter code) FipHdr field for API-RESPONSE api-response can be raw, json, xml, html and may be used to vary the format of the response (if setup so !) check-fipid:no/yes check-apikey;no/yes Check either the Fipid or the ApiKey for IPaddress range, commands, expiry and logon If a FipId and/or an APIkey exists, it is checked and metadata added; but only if the check is set to YES, will it be stopped. So if set to YES, these params are used to filter UNauthenticated files from the incoming stream If set to NO, they are NOT checked and NO metadata stored trigger-extra: (ExtraFipHDr for an extra trigger file) Use this FipHdr info to create an extra file AFTER all the others have been processed. eg trigger-fiphdr:\nRF:trigger\n This requires an optional input variable on the form (usually hidden) : eg <!-- AFTER all the data, metadata and files.. trigger --> <input type="hidden" name="SFFMAIL_TRIGGER" value="XX:##UID##"> The supplementary file is triggered - maybe for tracking purposes - to a different DU (using meta specified in the FH parameter) debug-file:(pathnme in FipSeq) put all incoming data into a debug file debug-file:/fip/data/\$e\$y\$i\$d_debug/\$h\$n\$b_xremote_\$z.fip Note that if defining Unix escape chrs in scripts, you will probably need to escape the escapes ! eg : \n becomes \\n Other env varis can be used to define where the system is : SFFMAIL_Z name of a parameter file This is overridden by the '-z' input switch. SFF_HOME where the home or top queue is. default: /fip eg setenv SFF_HOME /ripexpress/underware SFF_LOG where the log files queue is default: (SFF_HOME)/log SFF_SPOOL where the data queues are default: (SFF_HOME)/spool SFF_TMP where the tmp data queues is default: (SFF_HOME)/x THIS MUST BE ON THE SAME UNIX VOLUME as SFF_SPOOL queues. ie if spools are on /data99 which is hard disk /dev/sd0, you MUST also have the TMP queue on the same disk/partition NOTE that for all BUT SFF_HOME, if the parameter starts with a '/' then it is a hard, absolute path; if not then the spool area is under SFF_HOME. eg setenv SFF_SPOOL /data7 will look under /data7 for queues while setenv SFF_SPOOL data7 will look under /fip/data7 Version Control ;2h34 05sep04 added zippy and sum: and bugette in copying data.. ;c 17oct06 allow alphanumeric Fipids ;d-g 11mar07 added FIP-MULTI-FILE ;h1-7 21dec10 64bit issue ;h2 6dec13 bugette - extra data before start of blob ;3 HR ;8-10 2jun15 added outname, outque, SX and RR ;11 WINNT again ;12 hash-in-fiphdr/isHash added; 13-15 added trigger and extra-fiphdr better ;16-17 4oct15 added pkg for updating and new HR ;18-21 balance-package ;22-33 action/variant ;34 8may18 added fipseq_extras ;001z 27mar99 chj added w4 bits ;a 29may99 mods to Fiplogon ;b 21oct99 added H* fields ;c 01jan00 envs added ;d 01may00 log added ;e 17jan01 added -m/-M/-d ;f 20feb01 response template is now in /fip/web/templates ;g/h 21feb01 Allow big textarea called FIP-DATA as data ;j 25jul01 bugette - w4 new file overwrote SW (fullpathname) not XX (short-just filename) ;k 20sep01 RADIUS_* -> use RealName. ;l/m 24jan02 cleaned up multiple files for w4 ;n/o 07feb02 added -r/-R ;p 09aug02 added default DU for w4 if none specified and -u ;r 20aug02 seqno increments for every file now - not JUST for multiples ;s 04sep02 allow mime headers -> FipHdrs if in xxx-fip-SU: format ;t 13dec02 added tracking of mime-types with accept/rejects (param file) ;u 04jun03 added extra logon info for w4 ;v 21jul03 zapped trailing CR on some binary files ;w 24jul03 chg of param file ;y 17nov03 small adjustments incase the Fip-Data field is > 128k ;z 22jan04 bug tracking...
