VPIM network shortcut

VPIM network shortcut

VPIM network shortcut

I´m installing a CP 4.0 and I want desktop features on Outlook 2003, The format for the CP account it´s:

VPIM network shortcut + mailbox number@CallPilot user + identifier+
CallPilot server FQDN

But I dont use domain on my nertwotk And I didn`t add the VPIM network shortcut, But I can receive my CP messages in the outlook, Does The VPIM shortcut index is mandatory?

Another Question: How do the users receive fax on their desktop?, Does It Just required to record in their greeting that if the caller want the send a fax They have to send after the tone (The user have to have Nortel fax batch etc.)

RE: VPIM network shortcut

The best way to get faxes to their mailboxes is to have a DID built as a phantom DN in the PBX; the phantom should be DCFW'd to the multimedia CDN; take the phantom number and enter it as an extension DN in the mailbox.  

RE: VPIM network shortcut

But This is the only way that an user can receive fax on his desktop (outlook), Can´t the caller call from a fax directly to the ext. user (through DID) and after hear the greeting send the fax?

RE: VPIM network shortcut

You can set that up one of two ways;

Assign a DID for fax only, create a phantom of that DID that is DCFW'd to the multimedia CDN; enter the DID for the fax under the Extension DN of the mailbox.  This is the "better" way to do it.  

They can use the same fax number as their DID, however, if the person answers their phone, they will get a fax tone in their ear, and if/when it gets to Call Pilot it can take several seconds before the Call Pilot determines it is a fax machine and accepts the fax.  It does work, but the first solution works better in my opinion.  

RE: VPIM network shortcut

Isn´t the VPIM Index necessary? because I created a desktop application for user with this format:
362@ (mailbox@serveripaddress)

and It works

RE: VPIM network shortcut

Yes, the VPIM prefix is a necessary part of the configuration; however, your previous question was on how to receive faxes.  

RE: VPIM network shortcut

Can I choose any VPIM prefix number to identify the CP server?

RE: VPIM network shortcut

The format is 1NPANXX for VPIM.  

RE: VPIM network shortcut

I´m trying to add a VPIM index, but The CP gave me this error: ESN code cannot be null
I can´t  access The window: ESN access code used by this location,

How do I add the ESN codes

RE: VPIM network shortcut

Did you try just putting a 9 in the field (if that's what you use to dial externally).  

RE: VPIM network shortcut


I`m taking back the CP(I was out)
I have the same problem:

the ESN windows is disable I can´t fill it up with ESN prefix (I use 9), I go to:
messaging ----> Message Network configuration:

any Of this below windows are enable (I can`t click on them):

ESN access code used by this location

Location codes (Add)

RE: VPIM network shortcut

Unless you are networking to other Call Pilots using NARS (AC2) you do not need to add ESN access codes plus Location Codes.  

I noticed you are running Call Pilot 4.0, do you SU01 PEP installed on your server?  

RE: VPIM network shortcut

The CallPilot isn´t going to be connected to other callpilot, But When I tried to configure the desktop on Outlook 2003 and tells me that I need the VPIM shortcut, And When I´m adding a VPIM index this error message appear:
ESN code attribute cannot be null: error code 60697 (but the ESN windows are disabled).

I`ve got a CP 4.0, I installed the patches when I started the CP (Wizard), But the Do you recommend? Do I have to re-installed the PEP´s?

RE: VPIM network shortcut

I believe you are missing a PEP, there is one that addresses this issue.   I am trying to locate the PEP number so  you can reference it.
