Setting up pager notifications
You may have to modify some settings to adapt to the local environment. It will be necessary to choose among the provided services or install a new paging service and substitute the local pager access number, if any, for the supplied one.
Note: When a VIAVI application (except Apex) starts, it also starts a separate Windows process called VIAVI Paging Service, which you can find in the system tray. After configuring the pager, verify the settings for the paging service match your needs. Choose Tools > Program Options > Notifications .
1. Click the File tab, and click Options > General Options.
2. Click the Notifications tab.
3. Select the Default pager configuration from the menu.
If your pager is not on the list, click the New button. The Paging Service Properties dialog will be displayed.
4. To view the initial pager configuration dialog, click the Properties button. The Paging Service Properties dialog will be displayed.
5. Enter the Service name. This is the name of the service used to access the pager; the Service name you selected from the list is your default.
6. Enter the Service phone number—use the international number format (e.g., +1 (123) 1234567) to allow TAPI to work with the Windows location settings.
This option will not be displayed if you are using a SNPP pager service, as SNPP uses TCP/IP to communicate with the paging service, rather than a modem.
If it is necessary to wait for an outside line, insert one or more commas at the beginning of the string (e.g., ,,,+1 (123) 123-4567).
Additional spaces and the hyphen in the phone number are optional; they make the number more easily readable by you, but will be ignored when dialing: Observer will dial only the numbers and pause for approximately one-half second for each comma character.
7. Select a Service protocol from the list. Observer supports four different pager service protocols: TAP, UCP, SNPP, and Voice. Selecting the appropriate service protocol and clicking the Configure button enables you to enter service-specific configuration data. Each protocol displays a different set of options that need to be set. Those options are described below for each protocol.
8. Enter the maximum message length for the pager.
9. Click the OK button.
10. Check the Apply advanced pager settings and click the Advanced button to display the Phone Pager Schedule dialog.
11. Check the desired scheduling option. You can add or edit start times by using the buttons at the bottom of the dialog.
After the paging server starts, you can send a page or view logs of what pages have been sent. See Sending a page and Viewing the Paging Server logs.
