Introduction

Redax enables users to first markup and then completely and permanently delete sensitive information from PDF (Portable Document Format) files. Designed for high-volume settings, Redax Enterprise Server performs markup and redaction on the server rather than on individual desktops.

Memory Requirements

Minimum free memory available to run the application: 512 MBytes

Windows Installation

Windows installation is handled by the installer and does not require any special handling.

Unix Installation

Setting environmental variables (All Unix Platforms)

In this release, UNIX platforms require two additional environmental variables that need to be set. If you run Redax Enterprise Server from the Redax Enterprise Server script created during installation, these environmental variables will be set by the script. If you run redaxserverapp directly, you will need to set these environmental variables yourself. Once Redax Enterprise Server is installed, you can view the variables needed by looking at the Redax Enterprise Serverapp script created by the installer.

Setting the Appligent home directory (All Unix Platforms)

The environmental variable that stores the location of the Appligent home directory is APPLIGENT_HOME. The default location for the Appligent home directory is /usr/local/appligent. The Appligent home directory contains the library files and resources needed to run Redax Enterprise Server.

It also contains license information for Redax Enterprise Server.

Example:

export APPLIGENT_HOME=/usr/local/appligent

Setting the APDFL library path ( All Unix except AIX )

The APDFL library path must be added to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable. The APDFL library path is located in a subdirectory of the APPLIGENT_HOME directory.

The path should be set to ${APPLIGENT_HOME}/APDFLX.X.X/Libs

Example:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:${APPLIGENT_HOME}/APDFLX.X.X/Libs

Setting the APDFL library path ( AIX Only )

The APDFL library path for AIX must be added to the LIBPATH variable. The APDFL library path is located in a subdirectory of the APPLIGENT_HOME directory.
The path should be set to ${APPLIGENT_HOME}/APDFLX.X.X/Libs

Example:

export LIBPATH=${LIBPATH}:${APPLIGENT_HOME}/APDFLX.X.X/Libs

Registration numbers for Redax Enterprise Server 3

In previous versions of Redax Enterprise Server, the Redax Enterprise Server registration number was required as a command line option with the -r flag each time redaxserverapp was run. A Redax Enterprise Server script was provided that automatically added -r and the registration number to the Redax Enterprise Serverapp command line when the script was run.

In the 3.x release, in addition to getting the registration number from the command line, Redax Enterprise Server can get the registration number from a license file in the Appligent home directory. On UNIX systems, license files are created by the installation script and stored in the ${APPLIGENT_HOME}/license directory. For Windows, the license file is created by the installer and stored in the All UsersApplication DataAppligentLicense directory. With a valid license file, the -r is no longer required on the command line. The -r option can still be used as in previous versions, and will override the value in the license file.
