RIP Daemon configuration files

The PDF parallel transform requires that at least three daemons be running to manage the PostScript interpreter portion of the pdf2afp transform. To simplify your configuration, InfoPrint recommends naming these daemons after the ports that they are running on. For this document, the configuration example begun in Sample PDF parallel transform (pdf2afp.cfg) configuration file will use the names 8261.cfg, 8262.cfg, 8263.cfg, and 8264.cfg. For more information about this daemon, see RICOH InfoPrint Manager: Reference.

The daemon, like the corresponding transform, uses configuration files. The daemon configuration files reside in the /var/psf/ directory. It is recommended that you create a /pdf2afp subdirectory where all support related to the Parallel PDF RIP client (pdfprs) can reside.

The following figure shows an example of a configuration file for the PDF parallel transform client that RIPs a color (FS45) file.
