As a beginner working with the Kofax Communication Server I would like to have a step-by-step guide explaining

  • the basic concepts of the Kofax Communication Server (KCS) system and
  • the necessary steps how to install and configure the System


The attached PDF file KCS_Core_TCOSS.pdf provides a step-by-step tutorial for the basic installation of the Kofax Communication Server core component (TCOSS).
The TCOSS component...

  • uses the KCS File structure as message store
  • handles the message routing
  • manages the FAX channels, which are configured using the WCONFIG program

Please keep in mind, that this tutorial is only addressing the installation of a stand-alone system, it does not cover the installation steps for fault tolerant tandem systems.
The following topics are covered in this installation guide:

  • KCS Core installation
    • Server Setup
    • TCOSS Installation
    • KCS File structure configuration
  • WConfig
    • WConfig shortcut
  • KCS Monitor
    • Starting KCS Services from KCS Monitor
    • KCS Monitor Shortcut
