The TacServe Management Tool

  • TacServe uses the Microsoft Management Console, which can be run on both local computer and remote computers.
  • To control and share COM ports with TacServe, you create one or more port groups that each have one or more COM ports.
  • The TacServe Management Tool also provides a live display of TacServe events and modem calls. TacServe events are recorded in a database that can be accessed with ODBC.
  • In this example, the port group named "AMR-1" has been created wth 8 COM ports and is being made available as a hunt group for the DialOut/EZ Redirector to use at TCP port 7000.

Configuring a Port Group

  • The Properties window for the AMR-1 port group shows its 8 modem COM ports and the settings in effect for the entire port group.
  • The TCP port number 7000 will be used by the DialOut/EZ Redirector to access the COM ports in this port group. Every time the redirector connects to port 7000, it will be assigned the first available modem COM port in the hunt group.
  • If the "individual access" option is selected, the redirector can also connect to port 7001, 7002, etc. to access specific modem COM ports.
  • Dialing Restrictions are enabled to control the telephone numbers that applications will be able to dial using the modems in this port group.
  • The port group is also given a name and password that the DialOut/EZ Redirector will have to provide to gain access to any modem in this port group.

Dialing Restrictions

  • In this example, a sequence of four dialing rules control the calls made using modems in the AMR-1 port group.
  • Rule processing stops when the first rule is a match to the call being attempted. If no rules match, the call will not be allowed.
  • Calls to the 455 and 452 are allowed in country/area code 1-603.
  • All other calls to 1-603 are blocked.
  • All calls to toll-free numbers in 1-800 are allowed.
