  • RadPix supports 6 TLS Ciphers:
  • RadPix supports TLS 1.2 protocol
Testing In the rtfs/apps folder of the RadPix installation are several batch files based on dcm4che.
  • dicomSend.bat
    • send DICOM files
  • dicomListen.bat
    • listen for DICOM files
  • dicomReadme.txt
    • summary of parameters for each batch file
  • test.dcm
    • test DICOM file to send
  • dcm4che
    • folder containing dcm4che utilities
----------------------------------------------------------------- There are 2 things to test: 1. Can the RadPix server catch a DICOM file sent by the sendDicom batch file? 2. Can the dcm4che listener catch a DICOM file from the PACS using the listenDicom batch Send DICOM to RadPix 
  1. Edit rtfs/apps/dicomSend.bat  Line 3 - This is the path to a test DICOM file. It should work with the one included. Line 4 - This is the IP Address of the rtfs server. In this case it could be localhost. Line 6 - Uncomment one of the CIPHERs - RadPix supports all 6. Line 13 - Make sure this port matches the port in rtfs.yml
  2. Run the batch file and see what happens.
  3. If it works, * Entry will be logged in logs/dicomscp.log * Case folder containing the DICOM file will be created in apps/data/storages/draft
Receive DICOM from PACS
  1. Edit rtfs/apps/dicomListen.bat Line 3 - Uncomment the CIPHER corresponding to the encryption that the PACS is using Line 10 - Set the port, make sure the port is open in the firewall
  2. Run the batch file and send a DICOM from the PACS.
  3. If it works, the DICOM file will be in rtfs/temp/dicomscp
