vcSetup is used to create settings in Vidicode devices with a network interface.
Vidicode devices act as FTP server. vcSetup retrieves the device settings by downloading the settings from the device. In vcSetup the settings can be altered and then uploaded to the device again. Resetting the device from the menu will bring the new settings into effect.
vcSetup is used in the following chain of events if you want to change the settings of a device:
· Download the current settings from a device to vcSetup
· Change the settings using vcSetup
· Upload the new settings to the device
· Reset the device to activate the new settings
vcSetup can be used to change the time setting on Vidicode devices. vcSetup can also be used to check the software version on the device and if possible update the software.
Download Settings from a Device
To download the current settings of a device, select menu File, “Download settings from a device…”. Fill in IP Address device, FTP Username and FTP Password of the Vidicode device.
IP Address device can be the IP number or IP name. The IP Address is saved in the drop-box. When connecting again to the device it can be selected from the drop-box. When a device has been selected the Name is filled in automatically. For safety reasons the Password need to be entered manually.
Changing Settings of Device
The vcSetup application can be used to configure several different Vidicode call recorders and fax servers with an ethernet interface. Therefore the settings will appear different for each kind of device. This means every device can have a different layout of tab-pages and drop-boxes.
Please refer to your device manual for a description of the settings.
To save the settings on your local harddisk choose File in the menu and select Save As.
A dialog will open where the settings file can be given a name and a location can be selected where to save the file.
Setting files have the extension *.vc.
To restore the settings from your local harddisk choose File in the menu and select Open. A dialog will open where the settings file can be selected where you saved the file. Select the settings file and click Open.
When settings have been changed they need to be transferred back to the recorder. How this is done is described in the paragrpah “Upload settings”.
Upload Settings to a Device
When you are done making the settings, the new settings need to be uploaded to the device. Choose Tools in the menu and select Upload settings to a device. A dialog opens where you can enter the connection setting. Fill in IP Address device, FTP Username and FTP Password of the Vidicode device. Click ok if you want to upload the settings. The settings will be transferred to the recorder. To active the settings, the device must be reset.
Reset a Device
After the new settings have been uploaded to the device, the device needs to be reset for the new settings to take effect. A device can be reset remotely as follows: Choose Tools in the menu and select Reset a device. Then follows a dialog where you can confirm or change the connection settings. Fill in IP Address device, FTP Username and FTP Password of the Vidicode device. Click ok.
Please note that resetting a device has the following effect:
· For Call Recorders: All active recordings are stopped.
· For Fax Servers: Active fax connections are lost.
· For Voice Servers: Active telephone connections might be lost.
Note: After the reset command, a dialog box will appear, giving you the option to download the new settings from the device. When you click No, no data will be downloaded to vcSetup.
Update Device Software
vcSetup can also be used to update the software on the devices. For this vcSetup needs to retrieve the software version of the device and compare that to the current software version on the Vidicode webserver. After comparison vcSetup will come up with a dialog, that shows the differences between the current version and the latest version.
Click Do Update to execute the Update. vcSetup will now connect to the Vidicode webserver to retrieve the update. When finished downloading vcSetup will transfer the update to the recorder. Normally, the software can activate the update automatically.
