PageGate GetWeb AdHoc Setup Transcript for
Welcome to the tutorial on how to configure an
Ad-Hoc Web Page with the GetWeb Module in PageGate.
The first step is to run the PageGate admin,
so go to your start menu in Windows, go to Programs,
find the PageGate program group, and run the PageGate
Before we begin, it should be noted that since
the GetWeb module uses a template based system,
any customizations or edits that you make MUST
be done to the template, not to the index or default
If you make a change to the index or default
page, the next time the GetWeb module republishes
the information based on the template, you'll
lose any edits that you've made.
Before we can actually configure an ad-hoc webpage,
we first have to configure an ad-hoc recipient.
So, right click on the Recipient section, then
left click on Add.
You can name the recipient whatever you like
but it should be noted that whatever you name
the recipient will be the name that PageGate uses
as the web page directory name. So, for example,
if we name the recipient adhoc, our eventual webpage
name will be www.whatever.com/adhoc
After naming the recipient, left click in the
recipient field and you'll notice that it fills
in for you.
Click on the dropdown arrow next to Type and
Change it to Ad-Hoc.
In the carrier field, set the carrier that all
of this web page's messages should be sent through,
then left click on Apply.
Now that we have our ad-hoc user in the list,
left click on the + next to their name, then left
click on the Web Page sub-section under the recipient.
In the Template File field, click on the Dropdown
arrow and left click on the ad-hoc.htm template.
You may notice these fields, Text 1 through 10
and Image 1 through 5. These correspond to various
text and image placement fields within the template
and you can fill these in as you please.
After specifying the template, left click on
Now, if you look in the web pages directory on
your web server, mine is c:\inetpub\wwwroot\,
you should see a new sub-directory that matches
the name of your adhoc recipient.
If you go into that directory, you'll see that
PageGate has generated the index and default html
pages for the web server to host based on the

an Ad-Hoc Web Page with the GetWeb module. For
