PRB: Error 'Invalid control character 0x06 in EPSON file' when rendering Adobe PDF files.
This Zetafax technical note applies to:
When rendering Acrobat PDF files the following error may occur on the server log.
SYSMAN - (I) - QUEUEMAN SEND request SMTPMAIL:~MAIL000.CTL
QUEUEMAN - (I) - Queued new message SMTPMAIL:~MAIL000
QUEUEMAN - (I) - Converting message SMTPMAIL:~MAIL000
EPSTIFF - (I) - Converting SMTPMAIL: ~MAIL000 (Addr 1), TXT -> G3F
EPSTIFF - (E) - Invalid control character 0x06 in EPSON file
EPSTIFF - (E) - Error converting page
EPSTIFF - (I) - Conversion failed (error 0xF220)
QUEUEMAN - (E) - Error converting message (0xF220)
QUEUEMAN - (E) - Unable to find printable file for SMTPMAIL:~MAIL000
QUEUEMAN - (I) - Passing sent message status to mail gateway
QUEUEMAN - (I) - Completed message SMTPMAIL:~MAIL000 (1 failure)
STMAIL - (I) - Passing message to mail system
The e-mail gateway can not render the document and fails to process the fax message when large Adobe Acrobat document (PDF) files are sent through the e-mail gateway, or more than one PDF file is attached to an e-mail message when sent to the Zetafax e-mail gateway.
There are two possible solutions:
Pre-render the attachments by printing them to the Zetafax printer and saving the file from the client as a G3F file attachment.
Use the Document conversion engine to render PDF documents. This add-on supports over 250 file extensions and is a purchasable add-on to Zetafax.
This has been identified by Equisys as a problem with the software versions given above.
