Can pagegate be configured to to point to a machine on the network that has a modem to use as a back up.

We are using SNPP to page at this time with no major problems. However the higher ups want a back system (TAP) in cause we lose internet connection. Due to security concerns a dailup modem cannot be installed on the server where the pagegate program is installed. Can page gage be pointed to the machine with the modem.

NOTE: I am not an IT/Computer Tech. Just the poor soul put in charge of getting this to work cause "he knows a little bout computers let him do it"

Yes, a separate machine with an installed modem can run a dialer.


Install "PageGate Server" on the machine with a modem (lets call it "MACHINE B").

When prompted for the setup information, you should point the "Program File Directory" path to the folder on "MACHINE B", where you have just installed PageGate Server (the default is C:\Program Files\PageGate\).

The "Database Directory" should point to the folder (either using a Mapped Drive or UNC) where the original PageGate database resides.

We recommend that the "Log Directory" also be a folder on "MACHINE B", but you can point it to another folder on the network if you wish (again, using a Mapped Drive or UNC).

Under the "Run on this Server" section, select only the dialer that you plan on running on "MACHINE B".

If you are licensed for only one dialer, you will need to disable "Dialer 1" on the other machine.

***** You CANNOT run multiple instances of "Dialer 1" ******.

If you are licensed for multiple dialers, "Dialer 1" can continue to run on the original computer, and "Dialer 2" can be run on "MACHINE B".
