Downloading picture files for screen saver

– for eLux RP 6.5 and later versions –

Optionally, Scout administrators may configure direct download of picture files to the devices into the screen saver's picture directory.To do so, use the FileFetch tool, which downloads graphic files via wget.

Requires

  • The eLux package FileFetch must be installed on the devices.This may require modifications of the image definition file on the web server via ELIAS.
  • The picture files must be located in the specified directory and have the file extension .gif, .jpg or .png.The filename must be numeric.Examples: 0001.jpg, 0002.jpg, 0003.png, 0004.gif

The FileFetch tool checks on each device restart whether new picture files are available on the web server for download.
