RawSerial Advanced Settings

Top  Previous  Next





Failover is the ability of PageGate to send an undeliverable message to an alternate host. For example, let's say that you have two serial input lines that you could use with two separate RawSerial carriers. You could configure one as the primary method of delivery, then configure a second carrier for the backup serial line and configure the first carrier to fail over to the second.


Alternatively, you could configure a failover to go to a completely different method of communication. So, the program would initially try to negotiate a serial connection but if the serial receiver is unreachable, you can have it failover to an SMTP, WCTP, SNPP, TAP or any other delivery method instead. The failover settings at the carrier level is used to redirect all the pending messages to another carrier when the original carrier can't be contacted.

This field determines this carrier's place within the priority system.


By default, all carriers have their priority value set to 100 which puts them all on equal footing. If you leave 100 as your baseline, giving a carrier a priority value lower than 100 will be considered more important with a value of 1 being the most important and a value higher than 100 will be considered less important up to the maximum value of 32000 being the least important.

Msg Limit

This field determines the number of messages that the receiving serial system can handle in one block. This setting is directly effected by the receiving serial system's requirements and should be set to what the receiving system can accept.

Max PIN Length

This field is used to limit the number of digits accepted from a recipient's ID/PIN field for this carrier (extra digits are stripped of the beginning).
