About File System Upload Transfer Process
A file or attachment saved to the Siebel File System is copied from the user's hard drive and transferred to the Siebel Server. The data transfer protocol for file transfer matches that of the Web client browser to Web server (for example, HTTP or HTTPS). The File System Manager (alias FSMSrvr) component compresses the file, and then stores the compressed file in the Siebel File System. The compression and naming convention of the files is automated by the FSMSrvr.
