The Installation and User's Guide for Receivers
Installing the Receiver Application
The Receiver application
is a program that runs on the Receiver's computer that indicates when a Caller
If the Receiver chooses to have the
Receiver application automatically start at every login, no further steps
are necessary to run the application. To start or restart the application
manually, click on the Windows Start menu and choose "Callsite Pager".
Every registered Receiver
can download a copy of the Receiver's software from here
- Download this file in a new directory called 'callsite'
Click on Start - Programs - Windows Explorer, find the new Callsite directory and
doubleclick on 'setup.exe' to start the installation process.
The installer locates the Java
virtual machine. Choose the virtual machine you wish to use. In most cases,
choose the default value.
The installer will attempt to
locate a web browser on the Receiver's machine. In the event that multiple
browsers are found, one must be selected to be used for meeting with Callers.
The Receiver will then be prompted
for a CallSite Username and Password, as well as his Full Real Name.
Please use exactly the same
Username, Password and Full Real Name as registered with ETN to ensure proper
set up of the calling functions.
You find this information in ETN's Confirmation Email.
Username, Password and Full Real Name are case-sensitive!!
The Receiver will be asked if the
Receiver application should be started at every login. Answering yes is
highly recommended, unless there is a specific reason for answering no.
The Receiver application is then
installed on the Receiver's computer, and you can start receiving calls.
Once the Callsite Pager is installed,
you can check and edit your settings by clicking in Callsite Pager on File - Options - Pager Options
Calls With The Receiver Application
|There are two checkbox fields
that the Receiver can configure from within the Receiver application.
When a Caller calls you, the Receiver
application pops to the top of all open windows and plays an audible alarm
to let you know that you have an incoming call. The application displays
the name of the person who called you and a message from them if they provided
one. You have the option of either accepting or rejecting their call.
The first checkbox ensures that
an Receiver using a dial-up connection is able to receive calls correctly,
since dial-up users have a different IP address each time they connect
to the Internet. When this option is enabled, it ensures that the CallSite
server can locate the Receiver. In most cases, dial-up users will want to
check this box. NOTE: If you have a dial-up connection and are having
trouble receiving calls when this box is checked, it may be due to the
specific configuration of your dial-up connection. Unchecking this box
may resolve the problem although you will not receive automatic notification
of new voice messages.
The second checkbox allows you
to reject all incoming calls automatically, essentially turning off the
Receiver without closing the program. If you check this box, you will be
given a text field where you can enter a message that will automatically
be sent back to the Caller who called you informing why you are unavailable.
If you reject the call, you
are given a text box to enter a message to be sent back to the Caller.
Unlike the text box you used to automatically reject all calls, the value
entered here will be sent only to the user who is currently calling you.
If you accept the call, both
you and the Caller will establish communication via the CallSite applet
appearing in your web browser.
IMPORTANT If you are asked by your computer WHICH communication mode to
install, please select 2
Establishing Voice and Text communication with your Caller
Once the applet is loaded in your computer,
you will enter the Text Chat Room automatically.
As soon as the caller is in the same room, you
can start a text chat.
To establish voice communication with a caller,
- Click on People in the right column
- Select your caller's nickname in the popup-screen
- Click on Private and Close
- Click on Voice
- As soon as Ready appears, click on Ready to talk
|Receivers should be aware that
CallSite allows ETN to send out broadcast messages
to all Receivers that currently have their Receivers turned on. Broadcast
messages automatically pop up to the top of all your open Windows. After
reading the message, click "OK" to close the window.
