XMPP Advanced Settings

Failover is the ability of PageGate to send an undeliverable message to an alternate host. For example, if you have multiple possible XMPP servers that you can communicate with, you can configure each as a separate carrier, then configure one to be the failover for the other. 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.


Alternatively, you could configure a failover to go to a completely different method of communication. So, the program would initially try to negotiate a chat session with your XMPP server but if that server is unreachable, you can have it failover to an SMTP/Email delivery method instead.


Enter your XMPP server's required username.


Enter your XMPP server's required password, if any.


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 can be negotiated with the XMPP server in one session. Since most XMPP servers only require you to authenticate once before sending a series of messages, you can usually leave this at 0. However, if your XMPP server does require you to authenticate every message, set this field to 1.

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).
