PageGate SNPP, WCTP or TAP Recipient Setup Transcript for Video:
Welcome to the tutorial on how to add an SNPP, WCTP, or TAP recipient into PageGate.

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

Once the PageGate Admin comes up, find the recipient section.

Right click on it, then left click on Add.

You can name the recipient whatever you please.

After entering the Name, left click in the recipient field and you'll notice that it fills this field in for you.

The type should almost always be Normal, so leave it there.

In the Carrier field, click on the drowndown arrow to view a list of carriers that you have configured in the program.

For information on how to add a carrier, please visit the PageGate Carrier Tutorials on our website, www.notepage.net

After selecting one of your SNPP, WCTP, or TAP carriers, you should see the ID/PIN field. In the ID/PIN field, enter the 10 digit phone number, no spaces or dashes, of the device you wish to contact.

Next you'll see the Max Characters field.

If you've gone through our Carrier tutorial, you'll remember that the carrier also has a max characters.

The Carrier's max characters determines the number of characters this carrier can receive in one message.

This field, in the recipient settings, determines the maximum number of characters this recipient should be able to receive.

If the Recipient's Max characters is higher than the Carrier's Max characters, the program will split the message into multiple messages.

For example, if the carrier's Max Characters is set to 160 and we have our Max Characters set to 320 and we then send a 200 character message to this recipient, the program will send one 160 character and one 40 character message to the recipient.

Next you should see the Notify Code field. This field is primarily used in tandem with numeric only pagers and is only ever referenced in one of two cases, which we'll get to in a moment.

Below the notify code, you should see these six check boxes. If you have a check in the Notify Only box, the program will only ever send this recipient the numerical sequence you've entered into the Notify Code.

If the device you're sending to is an alphanumeric device, Alpha should be checked.If it is a numeric only device, Alpha should not be checked. If alpha is unchecked and you attempt to send an alpha message to this device, the program will instead send the notify code.

Below that is the Reliapage checkbox. If this is enabled, the program will autonumber every message sent to this device.

Next is the "Don't send Sender's Name" checkbox. If this is checked, the program will not send any sender's information to this device. Drop non-printable characters should be enabled.

After entering your information and selecting your preferences, left click on Apply. When you do, you should see the recipient show up under the recipients list.

This concludes the tutorial on how to add an SNPP, WCTP, or TAP recipient into PageGate. For more tutorials, including how to add an SNPP recipient, please visit our website, www.notepage.net
