Therefore, the I-FAX 1 has an HTTP server function and also functions as a client of the mail server 3.
[0021]
Next, FIG. 4 shows an operation when the level corresponding to the event or the notification destination corresponding to the level is changed from the operation unit 16 of the I-FAX 1 in the level table T1 and the notification destination table T2 stored in the RAM 13. This will be described with reference to a flowchart. This operation is executed under the control of the MPU 11 based on the program stored in the ROM 12 (hereinafter the same as the operation of the I-FAX 1).
[0022]
In step S <b> 1, a mode for changing the level or the notification destination is set based on a predetermined input operation from the operation unit 16.
In step S2, it is awaited that a password as authentication data is input from the numeric keypad 16a of the operation unit 16.
[0023]
In step S3, authentication of the password input in step S2 is performed. That is, authentication is performed as to whether the access is from a person who has the authority to change the level table T1 or the notification destination table T2, for example, an administrator or a specific user. As a result, if the password is authenticated, the process proceeds to step S4. On the other hand, if the password is not authenticated, the process returns to step S2 to wait for the password to be input again. Then, the user is prompted to input the password a predetermined number of times, and if the authentication is still not obtained, the process is terminated.
[0024]
In step S4, it is waited for the item “event” in the level table T1 shown in FIG.
In step S5, it is awaited that the level corresponding to the item “event” selected in step S4 is input from the numeric keypad 16a of the operation unit 16. As a result, the level corresponding to the selected “event” item is changed.
[0025]
In step S <b> 6, it is awaited that the item “level” is selected in the notification destination table T <b> 2 shown in FIG. 3B based on the operation from the operation unit 16.
In step S7, it is awaited that a notification destination corresponding to the “level” item selected in step S6 is input from the numeric keypad 16a of the operation unit 16. As a result, the notification destination corresponding to the selected “level” item is changed. Note that the notification destination can be changed by changing the notification destination of “To:”, adding the notification destination to “To:”, or changing the notification destination of “Cc:”, “Cc: It is conceivable to add a notification destination to "."
[0026]
In step S <b> 8, it is awaited that an indication indicating whether or not to change the level or the notification destination is input based on an operation from the operation unit 16. Then, when the end is input, the process proceeds to step S9. On the other hand, when other items or the like are changed or when it is inputted that the processing is not terminated due to an input error or the like, the process returns to step S4, and the level or notification destination is changed.
[0027]
In step S9, the level table T1 or the notification destination table T2 is stored in the RAM 13.
Next, in the level table T1 and the notification destination table T2 stored in the RAM 13, the operation when changing the notification destination corresponding to the level or the level corresponding to the event from the client PC (administrator PC4 or user PC5) is shown in FIG. This will be described with reference to the flowchart shown in FIG.
[0028]
In step ST1, URLs (Uniform Resource Locators) for displaying the level table T1 and the notification destination table T2 on the screen are input from the client PC.
[0029]
In step SR1, HTML (HyperText Markup Language) in level table T1 and notification destination table T2 is transmitted from I-FAX 1 to the client PC accessed in step ST1.
[0030]
In step ST2, the level table T1 and the notification destination table T2 are displayed on the screen of the client PC based on the HTML transmitted from the I-FAX 1.
[0031]
In step ST3, authentication data composed of a user name and a password, and change data in which the level table T1 or the notification destination table T2 is changed are transmitted from the client PC to the I-FAX 1. Here, as a change of the level table T1, a level change can be considered. On the other hand, the notification destination table T2 may be changed by changing the notification destination of “To:”, adding a notification destination to “To:”, or changing the notification destination of “Cc:”, “Cc : ”May be added to the notification destination.
[0032]
In step SR2, authentication is performed by I-FAX 1 based on the authentication data transmitted from the client PC. That is, the I-FAX 1 authenticates whether the access is from a person who has the authority to change the level table T1 or the notification destination table T2, for example, an administrator or a specific user.
[0033]
In step SR3, when authenticated based on the authentication data, the process proceeds to step SR4. On the other hand, if the authentication is not performed based on the authentication data, the process proceeds to step SR6.
[0034]
In step SR4, the level table T1 or the notification destination table T2 is stored in the RAM 13 of the I-FAX1.
In step SR5, HTML indicating that the level table T1 or the notification destination table T2 has been changed is transmitted from the I-FAX 1 to the client PC.
[0035]
In step ST4, the fact that the level table T1 or the notification destination table T2 has been changed is displayed on the screen of the client PC.
In step SR6, HTML indicating an authentication error is transmitted from I-FAX 1 to the client PC.
[0036]
In step ST5, a message indicating an authentication error is displayed on the screen of the client PC.
When an event occurs in the I-FAX 1 after the level table T1 or the notification destination table T2 stored in the RAM 13 is changed from the operation unit 16 of the I-FAX 1 or the client PC, the event in the I-FAX 1 An e-mail corresponding to is created. Then, the electronic mail is transmitted from the I-FAX 1 to the predetermined notification destination via the mail server 3 based on the level table T1 and the notification destination table T2.
[0037]
As described above, according to the present embodiment, the following operations and effects can be obtained.
(1) The RAM 13 stores a level table T1 indicating a level corresponding to an event, and a notification destination table T2 indicating a notification destination corresponding to the level. Then, authentication is performed based on authentication data from a person who has authority to change the level table T1 or the notification destination table T2, for example, an administrator or a specific user. As a result, when authentication is obtained, the I-FAX 1 changes the level table T1 or the notification destination table T2 in accordance with an operation from a person who has authority to change. Accordingly, it is possible to arbitrarily change the e-mail notification destination when an event occurs. Therefore, it is possible to flexibly cope with an event that occurs in the I-FAX 1.
[0038]
(2) When authentication is obtained, the I-FAX 1 changes the level table T1 or the notification destination table T2 in accordance with an operation from a person who has authority to change. That is, the apparatus for changing the level table T1 or the notification destination table T2 is not limited. For this reason, a person who has the authority to change can change the level table T1 or the notification destination table T2 from the operation unit 16 of the I-FAX 1 or the client PC connected to the communication network T. Accordingly, a person who has the authority to change can easily change the e-mail notification destination when an event occurs from any device.
[0039]
(3) The level table T1 indicating the level corresponding to the event and the notification destination table T2 indicating the notification destination corresponding to the level are stored in the RAM 13 separately. For this reason, even if only the level of the level table T1 is changed, the e-mail notification destination is changed. Therefore, when the notification destination corresponding to the event is changed, the notification destination of the e-mail can be changed by changing only the level of the level table T1.
[0040]
(4) In the level table T1 or the notification destination table T2, in the case of a moderate event such as toner out, for example, the administrator PC 4 and a specific user (I-FAX 1 knowledge is obtained by e-mail) If it is set to notify the user), even if the administrator is absent, the specific user can deal with the toner exhaustion. As a result, an event of I-FAX 1 can be dealt with quickly. Therefore, it is possible to flexibly cope with an event that occurs in the I-FAX 1.
[0041]
In addition, the said embodiment can also be changed and actualized as follows.
The level table T1 shown in FIG. 3A may be changed to the level table T1 shown in FIG. That is, as shown in FIG. 6, notifications of e-mails that do not involve humans, such as recording paper near-end and toner near-end, are called level “1”, so-called warnings such as out of recording paper and recording paper jam. A level table in which an e-mail notification that intervenes the service level is “2”, and an e-mail notification that intervenes a service person such as a lamp break of the reading unit or replacement of the photosensitive drum is level “3” It may be T1.
[0042]
In the case of an event that can be dealt with by the user, such as a recording paper break or a recording paper jam, only an e-mail is sent to the client PC (administrator PC 4 or user PC 5) that has issued a print instruction to the I-FAX 1 It may be configured to notify that an event has occurred, or may be configured to notify all client PCs that an event has occurred by e-mail.
[0043]
As a notification destination changing method, a configuration in which a notification destination of “Bcc:” is changed or a configuration in which a notification destination is added to “Bcc:” may be adopted. In other words, even in the case of an event that can be dealt with by the user, such as recording paper running out or recording paper jam, the administrator may be notified by e-mail using “Bcc:”. According to this configuration, an administrator who manages the inventory of recording paper can obtain an opportunity to check the inventory of recording paper based on this notification.
[0044]
Furthermore, the technical idea grasped from the above embodiment will be described below together with the effects thereof.
[1] change means, the Internet facsimile apparatus to change the level corresponding to the stored events in the storage means. With this configuration, the level corresponding to the event can be changed, so that the e-mail notification destination at the time of the event can be arbitrarily changed.
