In order to run QuarkXPress Server in a QPS workflow, you need to make changes in the file managerconfig. so that the QPS Server can 'see' QuarkXPress Server. This file is located in the conf folder of the QPS Server folder.

The following two values define the connection information:

  • name The IP Address of the machine where QuarkXPress Server is running.
  • port The port number for QuarkXPress Server.

Following is an example of how these values fit into the structure:

<hosts>
<host>
<enabled>true</enabled>
<pingdoc/>
<connectioninfo>
<name>XXX.XXX.X.XXX</name>
<port>8080</port>
<user/>
<password/>
</connectioninfo>
<alias/>
<machineinfo>
<cpuspeed>0.0</cpuspeed>
<cpucount>1</cpucount>
<ram>1.0</ram>
<additionalinfo/>
</machineinfo>
<requesthandlerbindings/>
</host>
