Transcript for Video:
Welcome to the tutorial on how to add an SNPP,
WCTP, or TAP recipient into PageGate.
The first step is to run the PageGate Admin,
so go to your start menu, go to your programs,
find the PageGate program group, and left click
on the PageGate Admin.
Once the PageGate Admin comes up, find the recipient
Right click on it, then left click on Add.
You can name the recipient whatever you please.
After entering the Name, left click in the recipient
field and you'll notice that it fills this field
in for you.
The type should almost always be Normal, so
leave it there.
In the Carrier field, click on the drowndown
arrow to view a list of carriers that you have
configured in the program.
For information on how to add a carrier, please
visit the PageGate Carrier Tutorials on our website,
After selecting one of your SNPP, WCTP, or TAP
carriers, you should see the ID/PIN field. In
the ID/PIN field, enter the 10 digit phone number,
no spaces or dashes, of the device you wish to
Next you'll see the Max Characters field.
If you've gone through our Carrier tutorial,
you'll remember that the carrier also has a max
The Carrier's max characters determines the
number of characters this carrier can receive
in one message.
This field, in the recipient settings, determines
the maximum number of characters this recipient
should be able to receive.
If the Recipient's Max characters is higher than
the Carrier's Max characters, the program will
split the message into multiple messages.
For example, if the carrier's Max Characters
is set to 160 and we have our Max Characters set
to 320 and we then send a 200 character message

field is primarily used in tandem with numeric
only pagers and is only ever referenced in one
of two cases, which we'll get to in a moment.
Below the notify code, you should see these
six check boxes. If you have a check in the Notify
Only box, the program will only ever send this
recipient the numerical sequence you've entered
into the Notify Code.
If the device you're sending to is an alphanumeric
device, Alpha should be checked.If it is a numeric
only device, Alpha should not be checked. If alpha
is unchecked and you attempt to send an alpha
message to this device, the program will instead
send the notify code.
Below that is the Reliapage checkbox. If this
is enabled, the program will autonumber every
message sent to this device.
Next is the "Don't send Sender's Name" checkbox.
If this is checked, the program will not send
any sender's information to this device. Drop
non-printable characters should be enabled.
After entering your information and selecting
your preferences, left click on Apply. When you
do, you should see the recipient show up under
the recipients list.
