PageGate Failover Video Transcript:

Welcome to the Failover Configuration tutorial.

In this tutorial, we'll be going over how to configure the different types of failover systems in PageGate.

The first step is to run the PageGate Admin, so go to your start menu, go to programs, find the PageGate program group, and left click on the PageGate Admin.

Before we begin, there are two different types of failovers. There is a carrier level failover and a recipient level failover.

The carrier level failover tells PageGate that in the event that a carrier is unreachable via one protocol, it should attempt to deliver the messages through a secondary protocol or method.

The recipient level failover tells PageGate that in the event that messages fail to a specific recipient, those messages should instead be delivered to another recipient.

To set the carrier level failover, left click on the + next to the carriers section.

More often than not, you'll want to configure the carrier level failover to go from SNPP or WCTP to TAP. This means that you'll need an SNPP or WCTP version of a carrier and a TAP version of the carrier in the list.

For example, I've created a sample WCTP carrier and a sample failover TAP Carrier.

To tell the program to use the Failover TAP Carrier for my WCTP carrier, left click on the + next to the original carrier's name and left click on Advanced.

Here in the Advanced section, left click on the dropdown arrow next to the Failover field.

In the list of carriers, select the carrier that should be used in the event of a failure.

After setting your carrier, left click on Apply.

To set the recipient level failover, left click on the + next to the Recipients section.

In my list, you'll see that I have Sales Cell and Sales Pager.

If I want to have the Sales Pager set as the failover for the Sales Cal recipient, left click on the + next to the recipient's name, then left click on Settings.

In the settings of the recipient, left click on the dropdown arrow next to the failover field.

Select the recipient you want the failover messages to go to, then left click on Apply.

This concludes the Failover Configuration tutorial. For more tutorials, including how to configure carriers, groups, and recipients within PageGate, please visit our website, , www.notepage.net
