This is how you set up PageGate:

1) Go to the system that's going to host the database and main paging program for PageGate (I'll refer to it as the PageGate Server).

2) Browse to our website, http://www.notepage.net

3) Click on the Download button under the PageGate section.

4) Save the pgv4.exe file to your desktop.

5) Once it's downloaded, run it.

6) When it comes up with the four different installation options, choose the first: PageGate Server

7) This step isn't required but I would highly recommend changing the installation directory from c:\program files\PageGate\ to c:\PageGate\ - reason being, the Program Files directory is generally a 'protected' directory in the most recent version of Windows and you'll save yourself a networking headache later if you do this step.

8) The rest of the steps you can largely breeze through, just click on next until the installation is finished.

9) From your Start Menu, run the PageGate Admin.

10) When it prompts you for information, make sure that the Program, Logging, and Database directories are all set to c:\PageGate\ - Also, the only things you really need checked under "Run on this Server" are Scheduler and Dialer1. You can uncheck the rest of the options.

11) Click Apply.

12) You'll get a message that a new database has been created and that PageGate must be restarted. Click on OK and run the Admin from the Start Menu again.

13) Go to the Program - Settings section of the Admin.

14) Under 'Run PageGate As' click on Windows NT Service and click Apply.

15) When you do this, you'll be prompted for a username and password. Leave both boxes blank and click on Apply.

16) When it finishes switching run styles, all that remains is to set up the Carriers and Recipients. To add a Carrier, right click on Carriers and left click on Add. Same for the Recipients (right click on Recipients, left click on Add).

Now, to get the Client installed and working on the workstations, there's a little networking setup that has to be done in advance. All you really need to do is share the c:\PageGate\ directory on the PageGate Server on the network.

To install the PageGate Client on one of your workstations:

1) Go to the system that's going to host the database and main paging program for PageGate (I'll refer to it as the PageGate Server).

2) Browse to our website, http://www.notepage.net

3) Click on the Download button under the PageGate section.

4) Save the pgv4.exe file to your desktop.

5) Once it's downloaded, run it.

6) When it comes up with the four different installation options, choose the fourth item: Install PageGate Client

7) You can largely just breeze through the installation, clicking on next.

8) When you run the Client for the first time, it's going to ask you for a database Path. That database path is going to be the network path of the PageGate directory that you shared on the network (example: \\servername\directory\)
