PageGate GetTAP Module Setup Transcript for Video:
Welcome to the tutorial on how to configure the options of the GetTAP module in PageGate.

In this tutorial, we'll be going over what the GetTAP module is, how it works, and how to configure the options.

Before we begin the configuration, let me first explain what the GetTAP module is and how it works.

The GetTAP module is a part of PageGate that can monitor a serial port or COM port for incoming TAP connections. For example, if you have offices not connected to your Local Area Network that need to send messages to the PageGate computer by modem, PageGate can monitor a modem for their incoming TAP messages.

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

Once in the Admin, click on the + next to the Interfaces section.

Click on the + next to GetTAP, then left click on Settings.

In the settings, you have three options: Enabled, Serial Port, Baud Rate, Parity, Data Bits, Stop Bits, Init String, and Sender.

The Serial Port is the communciations port the GetTAP module should monitor for incoming data.

The Baud Rate, Parity, Data Bits, abd Stop Bitsare determined by the sending systems.

Pagegate's settings MUST mirror those of the sending systems. The init string field should usually be set to ATS0=1, which translates as pick up after one ring, but if you're using a direct connection to a TAP terminal instead, enter the word direct in all loewr case letters here.

In the Sender field, you can enter a sender's name.

Some TAP systems send a sender's name as part of their transmission, some don't.

If yours doesn't, be sure to hardcode a Sender's variable here.

After setting your communication parameters, put a check in Enabled, then left click on Apply.

When you do, the program will ask if you want this to be enabled for all existing groups and recipients.

Click on Yes.

This concludes the tutorial for how to configure the GetTAP Module in PageGate. For more tutorials, including how to add an SNPP recipient, please visit our website, www.notepage.net
