|The Virtual V-Tap is software that can capture VoIP data internally on a PC, mainly meant to record telephone calls from a Soft Phone that is running on the same PC. The collected data is wrapped into a special tunnel-format and sent to an external server, which can be a Call Recorder Apresa (running on Linux) or the V-Archive software (running on a Windows PC). The Apresa recorder or V-Archive software can both interpret this format and make playable audio files from it, together with the original date, time and call number information.
Packet Capture Driver for Windows 10 and 11
The Network capture driver for Windows 10 is Npcap (choose WinPcap compatibility during installation).
Packet Capture Driver for Windows 7 and 8
You’ll need a driver for this solution to work. WinPcap is for Windows 7 and 8.
Virtual V-Tap and archiving on a PC
When you choose to record calls on a PC and archive recordings on another PC, you’ll need:
• Virtual V-Tap (on your PC)
• V-Archive (on another PC)
• Network capture driver: WinPcap (Windows 7 and 8) or Npcap (Windows 10)
• One license for upload to the PC
In this case, you install V-Archive on the PC where all recordings should be managed and listened to. Virtual V-Tap sends data over the network to the V-Archive on this PC. V-Archive can accept data from more than one Virtual V-Tap. This way you can build a complete call recording solution for your office, with one central database of recordings, stored by V-Archive.
For every Virtual V-Tap that uploads to V-Archive, you’ll need one “license for upload to the PC”.
Virtual V-Tap and archiving with the Call Recorder Apresa
When you choose to archive recordings on the Apresa, you’ll need:
• Virtual V-Tap
• Network capture driver: WinPcap (Windows 7/8) or Npcap (Windows 10/11)
• One license for upload to Apresa
In this case, download the Virtual V-Tap and buy a license for upload to Apresa from us.
The Virtual V-Tap captures VoIP data from the IP network and sends this, in this case, to the Call Recorder Apresa. The Apresa is a versatile and multi-channel call recorder running on a Linux server. It is designed to handle a large number of telephone calls at the same time. The web interface of the Apresa is shown below.
