Graphical Interface

The actim graphical user interface is invoked by the program, gactim. The GUI provides an easy interface for setting up or modifiying configurations on client, server and security, a simple server status control and also launches events on file transfers and command line calls.

Diagram 2 shows the main window screenshot when the gactim is called. The main window is generally categorised into 5 functional areas which are indicated in the diagram. The program will search for $HOME/.actimrc and $HOME/.actimdrc files for configuration. If the files do not exist the program will use the default configuration. Then the user can use the gui program to create configuration files.
