Executing the commands

By default the dtuser account is set up to run vaeinit at start up. The vaeinit dialog asks you to select 1 to start Blueworx Voice Response processes or 2 to not start Blueworx Voice Response.

To use the command line, respond by typing 2 (this will not start the GUI). Then, to start Blueworx Voice Response processes, type the following command and press Enter:
This takes a few moments, but when the prompt returns, you can use Blueworx Voice Response command line tools.

For a few of the commands, you need to be logged on as root, and you need to execute the command that sets the dtuser’s environment before you execute the command. To do this, type the following command and press Enter:

. /usr/lpp/dirTalk/tools/vae.setenv

Some of the commands are interactive. For the interactive commands, when you press Enter, a prompt appears on the screen. Follow the instructions given by the prompts.

Most of the commands are non-interactive. Some of these have no syntax and perform only one function when you execute them. Others have one or more flags that modify the action of the command. Some flags are followed by one or more parameters. To execute a non-interactive command, type the name of the command followed by the flags and parameters appropriate for the task you want to perform. Then press Enter.

The non-interactive commands are non-blocking, which means that they return control to you immediately (without waiting for the command to finish).
