Advanced Server Settings

Top  Previous  Next

 

There are several settings in PageGate that are not contained within the Administrative GUI Interface. These settings are not commonly used but are available for knowledgeable Administrators to control certain advanced functions within the Server. All of these Advanced functions are controlled through Registry entries, so you MUST be logged in to Windows with an Administrative Account to configure them.

 

These registry settings are for modifying the default behavior of the program. Unless they are needed, these registry entries SHOULD NOT EXIST.

 

These registry entries must be created in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - Software - Wow6432Node - NotePage - PageGate section of the registry.
