RawTCP 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 TCP hosts that you could communicate with; one primary and one backup. You could configure each as a RawTCP carrier, then 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 TCP session with your host but if receiving host 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 than the receiving TCP host can handle in one block. This setting is directly effected by the TCP host'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).
