PageGate Connectors for Direct Connect Transcript
Welcome to the tutorial on how to configure the
Connectors in PageGate a direct connection to
a serial terminal.
The first step is to run the PageGate Admin,
so go to your start menu, go to Programs, find
the PageGate program group, and left click on
Once in the admin, left click on the + next to
the Connectors section.
Then click on the + next to Connector 1 and left
click on Settings.
Here in the settings of connector 1, you'll see
the following fields.
To configure a connector to send via serial to
a paging terminal, you'll first need to specify
the communications port.
To do this, find the Serial Port field and left
click on the Drop Down arrow next to it.
The Serial Port MUST match the COM port that
the serial cable is plugged in to.
After selecting the serial port, look for the
Init String field. By default, this should be
set to (auto) so that the program will automatically
determine the best initialization string to use
with your modem but we're not using a modem. So,
left click in the init string field, not on the
drop down arrow, and hit the backspace key on
your keyboard to clear this information out.
Once it is empty, type in the word direct in
all lower case letters.
Below that, we have the Dialing Prefix. Make
sure this is completely blank.
By default, the Dedicated Carrier field set
to none. If you are using a direct serial connection,
the dedicated carrier must be set to the carrier
for your TAP terminal.
Put a check mark in Direct Connect.
After setting your communications preferences,
left click on Apply.
This concludes the tutorial on how to configure
the Connectors in PageGate for Internet and modem
or Internet only traffic. For more tutorials,
