The graphical user interface of the AFD is based on the X Window System from MIT. The X Window System is a network transparent window system which runs on a wide range of computing and graphics machines. For more information read the documents that came with your X Window System.
Currently the AFD has the following windows:
|afd_ctrl||The main window to control and monitor the AFD. With this window you can call all the other windows of the AFD.|
|dir_ctrl||The main window to control and monitor the input part of AFD.|
|show_log||Shows the contents of the System-, Receive-, Transfer- and Transfer Debug Log files.|
|edit_hc||Change configuration for the host name.|
|afd_info||Information window showing more details about the remote host.|
|show_ilog||Shows the contents of the input log file.|
|show_olog||Shows the contents of the output log file. With this window it is possible to resend files that have been archived.|
|show_dlog||Shows the contents of the delete log file.|
|show_queue||Shows the contents of the input and/or output queue. With this window it is possible to delete files from the queue or send from the queue to some other destination.|
|xsend_file||Send file to some other destination. This is used by the show_olog and show_queue dialog.|
|mon_ctrl||Dialog to monitor and control other AFD's.|
All the above windows are separate windows, ie. you can start them without the afd_ctrl or afd_mon window.
