9 Chapter 1 Overview Introduction The Ascent Capture Internet Server (ACI Server) module adds Internet/Intranet processing capabilities to Ascent Capture. With this module, Ascent Capture stations can be connected to a central site via the Internet (or Intranet) to assist in the production document and data capture process. Batches can be scanned and processed at the remote site, and then uploaded to the central site for further processing and release. This chapter describes the following: ACI Server components ACI Server features Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5 1

10 Chapter 1 Components ACI Server components are installed at your central site and one or more remote stations as follows: The ACI Server software is installed on an IIS Web server at your central site. It acts as a broker between your central Ascent Capture database and your remote stations. The Remote Synchronization Agent is installed on stations at your remote sites to manage batch classes downloaded from the central site and upload completed batches to the central site. Batches created at a remote station are processed through all the modules set to run at the remote site. When the remote processing is complete, the batches can be uploaded to the central site. Once uploaded, the batches are integrated into the central site s Ascent Capture system for further processing and release.

11 Overview Features ACI Server eliminates the common and costly practice of shipping documents from remote offices to a central site for processing. It supports remote scanning and processing of documents via the Internet or Intranet, and allows IT and IS managers to develop and implement enterprise-wide capture solutions. With ACI Server, documents can be scanned inexpensively at remote stations and then automatically uploaded to the central site, securely and reliably. In addition, ACI Server provides the following: Centralized administration: The Ascent Capture system administrator can centrally manage configuration information, schedules for uploading batches, and batch class definitions for all remote stations. Quick and easy deployment: The central site s Web server can be configured quickly and easily using Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS). Remote stations can be configured quickly and easily using Microsoft Internet Explorer. Data security: Authentication and encryption settings can be configured using IIS as desired by the Web administrator. For example, an authentication scheme (such as Anonymous, Basic authentication, or NT challenge/ response) can be configured to control access to content on the central site s Web server. If desired, the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol can be enabled for encrypted transfer of data between the central and remote sites. Refer to your Microsoft documentation for details on administering security for your central site s Web server. Offline capability: With ACI Server, remote stations do not have to be connected to the central Ascent Capture server while processing batches. You can set your remote stations to synchronize with your central site at predetermined intervals or on demand. Internet/Intranet support: ACI Server is suitable for Internet and/or Intranet configurations. Scalable: Multiple Web servers can be deployed across one central site. One or more remote stations can be set up to use a Web server. Customizable Web pages: The interface for the software that runs from remote stations is in the form of ASP and HTML pages. You can use any HTML editor, or even Notepad, to change the look of the pages to suit your own needs. For example, you may want to add your own company logo.

13 Chapter 2 Installing ACI Server Introduction The ACI Server module is installed in a distributed way, meaning the software is installed in more than one place. Most of it is installed on a Microsoft Information Internet Server (IIS) Web server at your central site. Software must also be installed on your remote stations to allow the stations to periodically connect to the server to download batch classes and upload completed batches. The components that must be installed are listed below. At the Central Site Ascent Capture must be installed at your central site. It can be installed in a client/server configuration or as a standalone installation. ACI Server software must be installed on an IIS Web server at your central site. The IIS Web server must have access to the Ascent Capture database. Ascent Capture hardware keys must be attached to your Ascent Capture stations, and an ACI Server hardware key must be attached to your IIS Web server. At the Remote Sites Ascent Capture must be installed as a standalone installation on each remote station. The ACI Server Remote Synchronization Agent must be installed on all remote standalone stations. An Ascent Capture hardware key must be attached to your remote stations. This chapter describes how to install and configure the items listed above. It also includes operating requirements for your IIS Web server and remote stations.

16 Chapter 2 Installing ACI Server The following sections describe how to install and configure the ACI Server software at your central site and your remote stations. Please read through the important installation notes below before you install the software. If you are upgrading from a previous release of ACI Server, read the important installation notes below, and then refer to the section Upgrading ACI Server on page 23 for more details. Important Installation Notes Read the following before you install/upgrade ACI Server at your central site and remote stations. Closing Other Applications Before installing ACI Server, you must close all other applications (including the Control Panel, virus detection software, and all toolbars) on your system. Information You Need During the Installation For remote sites, you will need to know the location or Web address of your central site ACI Server. Example: to your server/acis Windows 2000/Windows NT Installations To install ACI Server on a Windows 2000 or Windows NT operating system, the logged-in user must have Administrator privileges. UNC Support ACI Server supports Uniform Naming Convention (UNC) format. If you install Ascent Capture in a client/server network environment at your central site, you must specify UNC paths during the installation. 8 Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5

17 Installing ACI Server Read-Only Files In some cases, you may be prompted to overwrite read-only files during installation. This might happen, for example, if another application has files in memory when you install ACI Server. If this occurs, you must choose to overwrite the files in order for ACI Server to install correctly. If desired, you can make a note about the files being overwritten for future reference. ACIS Configuration Wizard for IIS Settings The ACIS Configuration Wizard sets basic IIS settings for an IIS Web server based on the assumption that you have FAT partitions. If your configuration is different, you will need to set additional settings after the installation, as documented in the ACI Server installation procedure starting on page 13. Regardless of your configuration, you should verify that all of your settings are correct before attempting to use ACI Server. For more information about configuration settings, refer to Appendix C, IIS Settings. Proxy Server Support ACI Server can run in a proxy server environment. To use a proxy server, you must enable and configure the browser proxy server address and port number for every PC that uses a proxy server. To configure your proxy server settings in Microsoft Internet Explorer, open Internet Explorer and select Tools Internet Options Connections LAN settings. Custom Module Support ACI Server supports Ascent Capture custom modules. If you plan on using a custom module at your remote stations, you must register the custom module at your central site and at each remote station after you install ACI Server. For more information about custom modules, refer to the section Using Custom Modules in Chapter 3. Note Installing ACI Server on a remote station disables the Ascent Capture Administration module on that station. Therefore, to register custom modules at remote stations, you must use the command line method. For instructions on registering custom modules from the command line, refer to Appendix B. Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5 9

18 Chapter 2 Server Certificates When using an SSL secured IIS Web server (in either IIS 4 or 5) with certificates that you create for the server, you will not be able to install the Remote Synchronization Agent if problems occur with your certificates. This is true even though you may be able to view the Installation page through Internet Explorer by ignoring any warnings about invalid certificates. In addition, the Remote Synchronization Agent cannot automatically synchronize with your central site if problems occur with your certificates. The problematic certificates generate warnings and display one or more prompts that require user response, which interferes with the automated nature of the Remote Synchronization Agent. This is true even though you may be able to view and use the Manual Synchronization page through Internet Explorer by ignoring any warnings about invalid certificates. Typical problems with certificates are: The certificate authority is invalid (or not trusted) The certificate date is invalid The certificate name does not match the host name Note To avoid problems, make certain that the certificates you create are valid before you attempt to install or use the Remote Synchronization Agent at a remote site. 10 Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5

19 Installing ACI Server Setting Up Your Central Site Setting up your central site involves the following basic steps, which should be done in the order listed. You must set up the central site before you can install the remote stations. Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Install Windows 2000 Server or Windows NT Server and applicable Service Pack on the station to be set up as your IIS Web server. This can be on the same or a different station as your Ascent Capture server station or Ascent Capture standalone station. (If you use different stations for your IIS Web server and Ascent Capture station, you must have LAN access between the stations.) Make sure Ascent Capture is installed at your central site. It can be installed in a client/server configuration or as a standalone station. Install the ACI Server software on your IIS Web server. If your IIS Web server and your Ascent Capture server (or standalone installation) are installed on different stations, make certain that the date/time settings on both stations are synchronized. Note You may already have some of the above items in place. For example, you may have an IIS Web server installed and configured. Even so, please read through all the procedures on the following pages to make sure your installation matches the requirements for ACI Server. Step 1 Install Windows 2000 Server or Windows NT Server Install the applicable operating system at your central site.! To install Windows 2000 Server 1 Install Windows 2000 Server on the station to be used as your IIS Web server. 2 Add the Internet Information Services (IIS) Windows component to your server. Note Internet Information Services (IIS) is installed on a Windows 2000 server by default. However, if you upgraded to Windows 2000, IIS will be installed by default only if IIS was installed on the previous version of Windows. Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5 11

20 Chapter 2! To install Windows NT Server Install Windows NT Server 4.0 on the station to be used as your IIS Web server. 2 Install the Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack. (If necessary, you can download it from the Microsoft Web site.) Choose the Custom installation option and select: Internet Information Server (IIS) Microsoft Data Access Components Microsoft Management Console Microsoft Transaction Server Other components as required. (The installation program will automatically select additional components to be installed as required by the preceding items. Do not unselect these additional components.) Accept the directory defaults provided during installation. 3 Install Service Pack 6a (or higher). Important If you installed the Service Pack prior to installing the Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack, you must reinstall the Service Pack before continuing with the installation. Step 2 Install Ascent Capture Install Ascent Capture at your central site using the ACI Server CD. You can install it in a client/server configuration or as a standalone installation. In addition, make sure you attach the necessary hardware keys to your Ascent Capture stations. For your scan stations, install and configure your Kofax hardware accelerators (if necessary). Refer to your Ascent Capture documentation for details on installing and using Ascent Capture, installing and configuring Kofax hardware accelerators, and attaching hardware keys. Note You must define and publish batch classes in Ascent Capture before your remote sites can download them. To ensure successful processing, administrators should be aware of important issues that affect batch classes. These issues are outlined in the section Batch Class Considerations in Chapter Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5

21 Installing ACI Server Step 3 Install the ACI Server Software on the IIS Web Server At the end of the ACI Server installation, an ACIS Configuration Wizard will run to help set up basic IIS settings for ACI Server. It will set typical configuration settings for an IIS Web server using FAT partitions. Follow the installation procedure carefully as it contains important notes about settings you must change if your computer varies from the expected typical configuration.! To install ACI Server 1 Insert the ACI Server CD into the CD-ROM drive on your IIS Web server. The CD supports AutoPlay, so the installation will automatically begin. (If it doesn t, run Setup.exe from the root directory on the CD.) 2 Select Central Site Install ACI Server. 3 Follow the instructions on your screen to install the software. Note: The default destination for the software is C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\ACIS. It is recommended that you install to that folder. The installation will install Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.5. For Windows NT Server installations only, the installation will install Microsoft Posting Acceptor If this is a new installation, the ACIS Configuration Wizard will appear. The wizard will assist you in setting up the following: The ACI Server Web site (ACIS) The Ascent virtual directory to point to your Ascent Capture root installation directory The Upload virtual directory to temporarily store batches being uploaded from your remote sites The anonymous user account (typically IUSR_computername, where computername is the name of your computer). This will be used as the logon account for remote users. The ACIS Configuration Wizard enables anonymous access for each of the ACI Server directories. Anonymous access is required to allow remote stations to automatically poll the central site. When selecting the anonymous user account, be sure to take the following into consideration:! If IIS is installed on a domain controller, ensure the anonymous user account has permissions on the Ascent Capture server. By default, the anonymous user account will be a domain-wide account. Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5 13

22 Chapter 2! If IIS is installed on a member server (rather than a domain controller), ensure the anonymous user account is a domain-wide account that has permissions on the IIS Web server and the Ascent Capture server.! If IIS is not installed within a domain, ensure the anonymous user account exists on both the IIS Web server and the Ascent Capture server and has the same password. The IIS Web server virtual directories can be displayed using Internet Services Manager. For a quick overview of the IIS Web server properties set by the ACIS Configuration Wizard, see Table 2-1 on page 15. For details, see Appendix C. 5 When prompted to do so, reboot your IIS Web server. 6 Verify the user name specified for the anonymous user account has Log on locally permission for the IIS Web server or is a member of a group that has this permission. This is a Microsoft security requirement for anonymous or basic authentication. To identify if your anonymous user account has Log on locally permission, see the procedure To display users with Log on locally rights in Appendix C. 7 If Ascent Capture is installed on the same machine as the IIS Web server and your anonymous user account is a domain account, you need to clear the Allow IIS to control password setting set by the ACIS Configuration wizard for the anonymous user account. Note that with Windows NT, this property is called Enable Automatic Password Synchronization. For details, see the section Allow IIS to Control Password Settings in Appendix C. 8 If you installed ACI Server and/or Ascent Capture on NTFS partitions, you must set the required NTFS security settings documented in Table 2-2 on page 15. For more information on these settings, see the section NTFS Security Settings in Appendix C. Important A reboot is required for NTFS security setting changes to take effect. 9 Attach the ACI Server hardware key to the parallel port on your IIS Web server. If Ascent Capture is installed as a standalone station on the same computer, you will need to have both your Ascent Capture hardware key and your ACI Server hardware key attached to that station. You can attach them in any order. 14 Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5

24 Chapter 2 Step 4 - Synchronize Date/Time Settings If your IIS Web server and your Ascent Capture server (or standalone installation) are installed on different stations, make certain that you synchronize the date/time settings on both stations. Note The date/time on your IIS Web server must be the same or ahead of the date/time on your Ascent Capture station. If this is not the case, your remote stations will not be able to download batch classes. If they attempt to do so, the message The Central Site changed the published batch classes while they were being retrieved. Please try again later. will display.! To synchronize date/time settings 1 On your Ascent Capture station: a Display the date/time setting utility as appropriate for your operating system. For example, on Windows 2000 Server, select Start Settings Control Panel Date/Time. For details, refer to the Microsoft documentation for your operating system. b Set the appropriate Date/Time, Time Zone, and Daylight Savings Time settings. 2 On your IIS Web server, set the date/time settings to match the settings on your Ascent Capture station. If possible, set the times on both stations to match to the second. If this is not possible, set the time on the IIS Web server to be ahead of the time on the Ascent Capture station. Note Computer clocks often drift and may not stay synchronized over a period of time. Ensure that you regularly review your date/time settings for the IIS Web server and Ascent Capture station or obtain software that does it automatically for you. 16 Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5

25 Installing ACI Server Setting Up a Remote Station Installing and configuring the Remote Synchronization Agent on a remote station involves the following basic steps, which should be performed in the order listed: Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Make sure Ascent Capture is installed on the remote station as a standalone installation. Configure the necessary Internet Explorer Security settings. Install the Remote Synchronization Agent on your remote station. The installation process will disable the Administration module at the remote station. Configure polling times and download batch classes. Step 1 Install Ascent Capture To install the ACI Server Remote Synchronization Agent, Ascent Capture must already be installed on the remote workstation. Install Ascent Capture using the ACI Server CD. It must be installed as a standalone station. In addition, make sure you attach an Ascent Capture Scan hardware key to your remote workstation. Important If you intend to use a Kofax hardware accelerator (for example, an Adrenaline 1700) on your scan stations with Ascent Capture, do not install the drivers that are shipped with the accelerator. The drivers that you need are included on the ACI Server CD and will be installed when you install Ascent Capture.

Converting Batches From Previous Releases After the central site has been upgraded, remote sites can continue to create and process version 3.x or 4.x batches to send to the central site. When the batches are uploaded to the central site, the batches are converted to 5.x batches. Note Until a remote site is upgraded, it will not be able to download 5.x batch classes for processing. Upgrading Your Central Site Upgrading your central site involves the following basic steps, which must be done in the order listed. Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Stop the Default Web Site on your IIS Web server. It must remain stopped during the entire central site upgrade process. Failure to do so may cause loss of batch classes and functionality at your remote sites. Upgrade the Ascent Capture software at your central site and republish your batch classes. For client/server configurations, you must upgrade the Ascent Capture server software and at least one client station. Upgrade the ACI Server software on your IIS Web server. Restart the Default Web Site on your IIS Web server. Note You must upgrade Ascent Capture and ACI Server at your central site before you upgrade your remote stations. In addition, you must prohibit remote stations from synchronizing with your central site during the entire central site upgrade process. Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5 23

32 Chapter 2 Step 1 Stop the Default Web Site on Your IIS Web Server You must stop the Default Web Site before you upgrade Ascent Capture at your central site. In addition, you must not start it again until after you upgrade ACI Server at your central site. Doing so will prohibit remote sites from synchronizing during the central site upgrade process. Warning It is very important that you stop the Default Web Site for the entire central site upgrade process. If you do not, and a remote station attempts to synchronize with your central site before both Ascent Capture and ACI Server are upgraded, the remote station will lose all published batch classes and will not be able to function. If this occurs, you must complete the upgrade at the central site. Then, you must upgrade Ascent Capture and the Remote Synchronization Agent on the remote station to restore its functionality.! To stop the Default Web Site 1 On your IIS Web server, do one of the following: Windows 2000 Server: Select Start Programs Administrative Tools Internet Services Manager. Windows NT Server: Select Start Programs Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack Microsoft Internet Information Server Internet Service Manager. 2 Expand the Internet Information Services tree to display the Default Web Site. 3 Right-click the Default Web Site folder, and select Stop. Step 2 Upgrade Ascent Capture and Republish Batch Classes Upgrade your Ascent Capture software at your central site. Use the version of Ascent Capture distributed on the ACI Server CD. In addition, make sure to attach the necessary hardware keys to your Ascent Capture stations. For standalone installations, upgrade your standalone Ascent Capture station. For client/server installations, upgrade the Ascent Capture server station. Then, upgrade at least one client station. Note When upgrading a client/server installation, batch classes are converted to the new format when you upgrade the first client station. Therefore, you must upgrade at least one Ascent Capture client station before you allow remote stations to synchronize with your central site. 24 Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5

33 Installing ACI Server For all installations, republish your batch classes. Refer to your Ascent Capture documentation for details on installing and using Ascent Capture, installing and configuring Kofax hardware accelerators, and attaching hardware keys.

47 Configuring ACI Server Configuring ACI Server Settings You can use the ACI Server Web pages to configure settings for managing batch processing activity between the central site and the remote stations. In particular, you can do the following: Select where you want to run each Ascent Capture module Configure polling times Ascent Capture Modules The ACI Server administrator can configure settings that determine which Ascent Capture modules run at the central site and which run at remote stations. These settings are configured from the Central Administration page. The procedure is explained in detail in the section Configuring Central Settings on page 44. Any module (including custom modules) can be run at any site, with these exceptions: the Scan module must be run at a remote station and the Release module must be run at the central site. These selections are already made on the Central Administration page, and you cannot change them. Also, once batches are uploaded from remote stations to your central site, ACI Server does not allow them to return to the remote stations for further processing. To illustrate, suppose that you have batch classes defined with the following processing queues: Scan Quality Control Validation Verification Release Using the Central Administration page, you can specify which modules are to run at the central site and which are to run at the remote stations. For example, you might set up the Scan and Quality Control modules to run at the remote station and the other modules to run at the central site. Once a batch is processed through the Scan and Quality Control modules, it will be routed to the central site. Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5 39

48 Chapter 3 Using the Quality Control Module Because you can use the Quality Control module as either a regular processing module or as an exception queue, keep the following in mind: Exception batches are automatically routed to the Quality Control module at the site where the exception occurs, regardless of the Quality Control site designation listed on the ACI Server Central Administration page. Batches without exceptions are routed to the Quality Control module site listed on the ACI Server Central Administration page, if the Quality Control module is defined as part of the batch class definition. Tip It is recommended that you specify Quality Control as a processing module to run at your remote station. This will force all batches through Quality Control before they are uploaded to the central site. This way, problems that occur at the remote site can be fixed there. To illustrate, consider this scenario: During processing at your remote station, a document is rejected because its pages are too light. To fix the problem, the document must be rescanned. Since the pages to be scanned would be physically available at the remote station, you could easily rescan them and continue processing. If the batch is sent to the central site, you would not have easy access to the pages to be rescanned. For instructions on selecting sites for Ascent Capture batch processing, see the section Configuring Central Settings on page 44. Using Custom Modules If you plan on using a custom module at your remote sites, you must: Register the custom module at your central site and at each remote site. Refer to Appendix B for details. Note that you must make the custom module s executable and registration files available to your remote stations. Add the custom module to the desired batch class at the central site. When your batch class is complete, publish it. From the ACI Server Central Administration page, select the custom module to run at remote sites. Refer to the section Configuring Central Settings on page 44. Download batch classes to your remote sites. 40 Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5

49 Configuring ACI Server Polling Polling refers to the process whereby your remote stations connect to the IIS Web server at your central site and do the following: Upload completed batches from the remote station to the central site. All completed batches will be uploaded. Upload user tracking statistics, if enabled, from the remote station to the central site for completed batches. Download configuration settings from the central site to the remote station. Any new or updated configuration settings submitted from the Central Administration page will be downloaded. For details, refer to the section Central Administration Page on page 34, or contact your system administrator. Download batch classes from the central site to the remote station. Any new or updated batch classes published at the central site will be downloaded. Download user profile settings, if enabled, from the central site to the remote station. Download the settings for the patch code reserved for batch separator sheets, if utilized, from the central site to the remote station. For details about batch separator sheets, see the Ascent Capture online help. Polling can occur in the following situations: When the polling time occurs, as defined for all remote stations from the Central Administration page, or for an individual remote station from the Client Configuration page. See the sections Configuring Central Settings on page 44 and Configuring Remote Station Settings on page 47. When a remote user clicks download classes from the navigation bar on the Manual Synchronization page. When a remote user clicks upload batches from the navigation bar on the Manual Synchronization page. When a remote user clicks the Synchronize Now button located on the Remote Synchronization Agent dialog box. See the section Remote Synchronization Agent Windows Taskbar Icon on page 39. Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5 41

50 Chapter 3 Configuring Polling Times There are two methods for configuring regularly scheduled polling times: Central site control: The same polling options are defined for all remote stations. To enable centrally controlled polling options, the administrator sets them from the Central Administration page, as explained in the section Configuring Central Settings. Remote station control: Polling options for each remote station are defined independently of one another. To configure remote station settings, use the Client Configuration page, as explained in the section Configuring Remote Station Settings on page 47. Configuring Central Settings (For Administrators Only) You select which Ascent Capture modules are run at your remote stations from the Central Administration page, as shown in Figure 3-8. If desired, you can also select uniform polling times for all remote stations using the Central Administration page. If you want your remote stations to configure their own polling times, do not select the Central control of polling times check box.

64 Chapter 4 Batch Class Considerations When using the ACI Server for Ascent Capture batch processing, the system administrator should be aware of the following information that relates to image folders, OCR dictionaries, user tracking, partial batch release, and database validation. Image Folders For your batch classes, you must specify the path to an image folder. If your IIS Web server and your Ascent Capture server are installed on different stations, you should use the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) format for this path. If you use an explicit drive letter in a non-unc format, that drive must be mapped to your IIS Web server. Problems will occur if you try to upload batches when the drive letter is not mapped. Note that mappings are not available unless someone is logged in on the server.! To specify the path to an image folder 1 When defining new batch classes, specify the path in UNC format to the desired image folder. You specify this folder on the Create Batch Class dialog box (General tab). Figure 4-4. UNC Path for Batch Class Image Folder 56 Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5

65 Using ACI Server 2 For any existing batch classes, update the path to the image folder to UNC format. You edit this folder specification on the Batch Class Properties dialog box (General tab). For details on defining batch classes, refer to your Ascent Capture documentation or online help. Note If your image folder is located on an NTFS partition, the anonymous user that you specify for your ACIS virtual directory must have write permissions to that folder. Refer to the section Images Folder Permissions in Appendix C for details. OCR Dictionaries Ascent Capture allows you to specify OCR dictionaries from any folder on your station. Copies of the OCR dictionaries are automatically placed in an OcrDict folder located in your Ascent Capture installation folder. The first time batch classes are downloaded to your remote stations, the download process will create the OcrDict folder in your Ascent Capture installation folder on the remote stations. Then, it will copy all the OCR dictionaries to that folder. Thereafter, the download process will copy the OCR dictionaries from the central site and overwrite the ones at the remote stations. For details on OCR dictionaries, refer to your Ascent Capture documentation or online help. User Tracking User tracking statistics for completed and deleted batches at each remote site are collected and uploaded to the central site if the User Tracking feature is enabled in Ascent Capture at the central site. Once enabled, user tracking will begin the next time: A remote station automatically polls the central site A user at the remote station downloads batch classes from the Manual Synchronization page A user at the remote station clicks the Synchronize Now button located on the Remote Synchronization Agent dialog box. (The dialog box is accessed by double-clicking the Remote Synchronization Agent Windows taskbar icon.) Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5 57

66 Chapter 4 Note that the merge utility does not need to be run at your remote sites. Statistics from your remote sites are automatically copied to the Stats.mdb file located at the central site. Note User statistics are uploaded for the current and previous month only. For example, if a batch takes longer than two months to process, the user tracking statistics for that batch will not be uploaded to the central site. For more information on the user tracking feature, see the Ascent Capture online help. Partial Batch Release Batches for which partial batch release is enabled are processed at the remote and central sites as follows: At the remote site: Batches are routed from Scan through all modules set to run at the remote site. Then, for any batch that contains errors, the rejected documents and pages are routed to Quality Control (Rescan) for repair at the remote site. Once repaired, the documents and pages are processed through the batch class workflow at the remote site starting with the first queue after Scan. When all documents and pages are successfully processed at all modules set to run at the remote site, the batch is marked Completed and is ready for uploading to the central site. Note that batches cannot be uploaded to the central site until all errors have been fixed. At the central site: Batches are routed from the first module set to run at the central site through Release. At Release, all error-free documents and pages are released, and any rejected documents and pages are routed to Quality Control (Rescan) for repair at the central site. Once repaired, the documents and pages are processed through the batch class workflow, starting with the first queue after Scan at the central site. Note that batches with errors are not sent back to the remote site for repair. 58 Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5

67 Using ACI Server Database Validation Ascent Capture 5 supports a database validation feature, whereby database lookups can be used to fill data fields in Validation. To use this feature, database validation must be enabled for a batch class, and the appropriate database software and files must be available to your Validation modules. If your Validation module is set to run at remote sites, and database validation is enabled in the batch classes used by remote sites, you must set up the appropriate databases at all remote sites where Validation will run. If the database files are not accessible to the Validation module, the error Could not find file Database File Name will be generated when the Validation module is started at the remote site. Refer to your Ascent Capture documentation for more information about database validation. Note When batch classes for which database validation is enabled are downloaded to remote sites, no checking is performed to ensure that the appropriate databases are set up for Validation modules set to run at the remote sites. Getting Started with Ascent Capture Internet Server 5 59

68 Chapter 4 Monitoring Event Log Activity At a remote site, each time the Remote Synchronization Agent is started or stopped, an event is logged to the application log on that remote station (Windows 2000 or Windows NT only).

73 Appendix B Custom Module Registration Introduction Ascent Capture allows you to create custom modules to perform unique functions suited to your business needs. A custom module is often registered using the Ascent Capture Administration module. With Ascent Capture Internet Server, the Administration module is disabled at all remote sites. This appendix describes how to register a custom module using the Custom Module Registration Utility. For details about creating, registering, and using custom modules with Ascent Capture, see the Ascent Capture 5 Advanced Features Guide. Registering a Custom Module If you plan on using a custom module at your remote stations, you must register the custom module at your central site and at each remote station after you install ACI Server. Then, you can add the custom module to the batch class workflow. To register the custom module at remote stations, the custom module executable and registration files must be provided for each remote station. Note The custom module must be registered at a remote site after the ACI Server Remote Synchronization Agent is installed, or the remote station will not be able to download classes from the central site.
