VTGO-PC 2.8 Advanced User Guide
Network Tab
In order to use VTGO-PC, the software must be connected to a Cisco CallManager or a VocalData
CallAgent. If DHCP option 150 is enabled on the network, VTGO-PC will automatically register
with the CallManager. If VTGO-PC does not automatically register with the CallManager, you will
have to fill in the fields with the appropriate information. If you experience any difficulty filling in
the fields on this tab, please consult your administrator.
• Use DHCP for TFTP Address: If a user selects this option, VTGO-PC will use DHCP to find the
TFTP server's IP address; otherwise, VTGO-PC will use the TFTP address specified by the user.
• Use primary TFTP Server: You must specify a TFTP server when there is more than one
TFTP server on a network, and/or when your network does not support DHCP Option 150.
• Run as VocalData CallAgent client: This option allows use of VTGO-PC with the VocalData
Softswitch. The user must check this checkbox and specify the primary TFTP address (as
above).
• Primary CM address: This is your CallManager IP address. See your system administrator.
This information must be provided in order for VTGO-PC to place a phone call.
• Secondary CM address: Alternative CallManager IP address for fail over.
• Port: This is the default port number for Cisco CallManager (2000).
12
VTGO-PC 2.8 Advanced User Guide
• Station MAC address: The MAC address of the PC or laptop on which VTGO-PC is installed.
In most cases VTGO-PC will populate this field automatically.

standard CallManager user account.
15
VTGO-PC 2.8 Advanced User Guide
Active Directory LDAP directory Settings
VTGO-PC supports connection to the Active Directory LDAP server. To gain access to Active
Directory, enter the specified directory name in second LDAP directory text box. After entering
the display name, enter the host IP address and port. Your Windows system administrator can
provide this information. (Note that the default port for LDAP is 389.) The rest of the settings
depend on how your Active Directory is configured.
First, the user’s properties (in Active Directory Users and Computers) must have the First Name,
Last Name, and Telephone number entered in the General tab section. If all three are not filled
in, VTGO-PC will not display the entry.
If your Active Directory allows anonymous logons (set by the system administrator), then under
the User DN field, you can enter “cn=Directory Manager”, and leave the password field blank. If
you must be an authorized user, then you must enter a credential that identifies a valid user in
the User DN field, and that user’s password in the password field. This credential is the fully
qualified domain name of the object, which can be found in Active Directory under the user’s
properties in the Object tab. The name is the display name. In Active Directory, the fully qualified
name appears as domain.com/users/name.
IMPORTANT NOTE: All settings used in Active Directory are “CASE SENSITIVE”.
16
VTGO-PC 2.8 Advanced User Guide
Note: Generally when you have a large directory (e.g. 3000+ entries), we advise that you use
the dynamic search capabilities with 500ms as the interval value.

Using Instant Messenger with VTGO-PC
VTGO-PC can also integrate with your Instant Messenger client. Currently VTGO-PC supports
Yahoo Messenger 5.5, AOL Instant Messenger 5.X, MSN Messenger 5.X and Microsoft Windows
Messenger 4.X.
In order to use this service with VTGO-PC, you must select VTGO-PC Companion during the
installation of VTGO-PC.
18
VTGO-PC 2.8 Advanced User Guide
VTGO-PC will recognize each IM client upon installation and allow you to select an IM type on the
Directories tab.
Using this setting, users can IM a buddy while using VTGO-PC for a regular phone call. This also
allows a user to view MSN and Windows Messenger contacts in VTGO-PC directory.
Dialing Rules
Click ToolsDialing Rules (Ctrl + R) to set up custom dialing rules for VTGO-PC.
Dialing rules tell VTGO-PC how to prefix the phone numbers so CallManager can properly route
calls.
Note: if there are no dialing rules, users must enter phone numbers in the dialing box exactly as
they need to be dialed (for example, in most companies this would be 9+1+area code+ number).
19
VTGO-PC 2.8 Advanced User Guide
The dialing rules list is maintained in the order in which you create the rules. The system
searches dialing rules from the top of the dialing rules list to the bottom of the list. When the
search finds a match, that dialing rule gets used.
Tip: Create dialing rules in the order in which you want them to be used.
To create a dialing rule for dialing numbers outside of the company without dialing 9 and 1
(Example: 912124851200), use the following rule: Click Tools Dialing Rules. Click Add to open
the Dialing Rule dialog window. Enter a name for the rule in the "Rule Name" field (for example,
“External”). Enter the number of digits to which the rule applies. This will be 10. Add Prefix will
tell the Dialing Rules to add numbers before the number of digits. In this case, it will be 91.

VTGO-PC 2.8 Advanced User Guide
Advanced Tab
The Advanced tab in VTGO-PC should be configured with the help of an administrator.
The "Use call audio mic buffer" should be used if there is a problem with your call audio. This can
vary, depending on the audio device that you are using. If the other end of the phone call is
experiencing audio distortion or static audio, you should configure this section. Increasing the mic
buffer size will help resolve this issue.
Audio distortion can occur on an XP machine while using the PDT VoIP Voice V550 USB. If this
occurs, you must check the "Use call audio mic buffer" checkbox and enter 60-100 as the value.
On board audio devices (SoundMax or AC'97) on Win2000 can potentially cause long delays on
the remote end if a mic buffer (of 30 ms) is not used.
Run program on startup: this setting will automatically launch the program when the computer
starts.
21
VTGO-PC 2.8 Advanced User Guide
Mute Media Player/RealPlayer on incoming phone call: this feature works with Windows Media
Player 7 and RealPlayer 1 only. VTGO-PC will mute these players on an incoming call.
QOS mechanisms can be used to set the TOS bits (for Diffserv) and set higher OS priority levels
on outgoing audio packets. However these mechanisms can cause failures in the audio path
setup if the underlying network or the OS is not enabled for QoS (consult your administrator).
Application Level Volume Control: VTGO-PC allows a user to control the volume of the computer
from VTGO-PC’s volume settings. In other words, when you adjust the volume within the
program, it also adjusts the volume in the computer’s audio settings. Using Application Level
Volume Control does not change the volume level of any device on the computer.
Run VTGO-PC’s miniWebServer: this feature allows a user to run services that make use of http
push and RTP push. This is also useful for VTGO-PC diagnostics. In order to use extension
mobility in CallManager 3.2, a web server is required. By utilizing VTGO-PC’s miniWebserver,
users can access services that make use of
a)
b)
c)

Accessibility option on VTGO-PC.
VTGO-PC Companion
VTGO-PC works with Microsoft Outlook and Instant Messenger. Together, these features are
known as VTGO-PC Companion.
Using Microsoft Outlook with VTGO-PC
To dial directly from an Outlook contact, you must select “Outlook Custom Contact Form” during
the installation. This will add a dial button on the Outlook contact form that will access VTGO-PC.
If VTGO-PC is setup to use Outlook as one of the directories (as previously described), there will
be three icons on your VTGO-PC screen:
23
VTGO-PC 2.8 Advanced User Guide
The first icon is a contacts icon with a question mark. When you receive a call, VTGO-PC will try
to find that contact in your contact list. If the caller is in the contact list, the question mark goes
away.
If the call received contacts is not in the Outlook directory, the question mark remains.
If the caller is one of your contacts, clicking the button will pull up that contact.
If the caller is not a contact, but you would like to add them to your contact list, click the icon, fill
in the contact form and click “Save and Close” to add the contact. The next time this contact
calls, VTGO-PC will find this contact.

services that are available to you.
Using the Extension Mobility Service
Your system administrator may provide you with a service called Cisco CallManager Extension
Mobility. This service allows you to associate your phone number and user profile with any VTGOPC on the network. In other words, you can go to another person’s PC, bring up their VTGO-PC,
click Services, and log into your own phone profile. When you use your extension mobility
personal identification number (PIN) to log in to a VTGO-PC phone, your profile (assigned phone
number, speeddials and other settings) are downloaded to VTGO-PC.
Logging in to VTGO-PC
To log into VTGO-PC using Cisco CallManager Extension Mobility, your CallManager administrator
must provide you with the necessary user ID and personal identification number (PIN). Follow
these steps:

administration page, which allows you to enter your own speed dials directly.
Barge
Barge is a new feature in CallManager 3.2. In order to use this feature, it must be enabled in the
CallManager.
The barge feature allows a user to join a call that is already in progress. The user can monitor the
call in progress and participate in the call. This feature supports shared lines only. A shared line
is a directory number that appears on more then one device in a partition (in other words, a
number that appears on two phones).
The barge soft key is only present when the target user has placed a phone call.
If a barge target places a phone call, a barge initiator gets the screen below:

VTGO-PC 2.8 Advanced User Guide
Clicking the barge soft key automatically adds the user (initiator) to the shared line call (target)
When a barge initiator barges into a phone call, the users currently on the call receive a tone
notifying them that someone has barged into the phone call.
When the barge initiator hangs up, the remaining users receive a disconnect tone, leaving the
original call in progress. When the user to whom the barge was initiated releases the call, the
barge initiator and the other users get disconnected. Additionally, when a user other than the
barge initiator or barge target releases the call, all parties disconnect.
If the barge target puts the call on hold, puts it in a conference, or transfers it, the barge initiator
gets disconnected from the call; the other users remain connected. If any other user puts the call
on hold, puts it in a conference, or transfers it, the barge initiator and the barge target remain
connected to the call.

LDAP
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is a protocol for accessing online directory services.
It runs directly over TCP, and can be used to access a stand alone LDAP directory service, or to
access a directory service that is back-ended by X.500.
The LDAP standard defines
• network protocol for accessing information in the directory
• information model defining the form and character of the information
• namespace defining how information is referenced and organized
• emerging distributed operation model defining how data may be distributed and
referenced (v3)
• Both the protocol itself and the information model are extensible
