MultiAccess Quick Start Guide
Introduction and Description
Introduction and Description
Welcome to Multi-Tech’s new MultiAccess Communications Server, Model MA30120. The MultiAccess
Communications Server is a high-performance digital remote access solution for Enterprise LANs and intranets or
internet service providers. MultiAccess is a V.92 remote access server (RAS) supporting up to four T1 line
interfaces implementing either RBS or PRI signaling for use in North America or up to four E1 line interfaces
implementing PRI signaling for international use. The MultiAccess Communications Server uses a web based
Graphical User Interface (GUI) for configuration, is a 1U (one-up) rackmountable unit that contains up to four
universal modem ports for dial-in communications.
WAN Communications
MultiAccess ships turnkey for T1/RBS or T1/E1 PRI ISDN and is populated with 30 modems on line interface 1 for
the basic configuration. Additional modem modules can be added to support up to four T1/E1 line interfaces.
The high-density modems provide V.92/56K dial-up speeds. In addition, they are manageable from remote
locations using platform-independent, industry standard protocols.
Management
MultiAccess includes robust management support allowing a network administrator to securely manage the
devices either through a web browser or at the command line. The browser-based option uses the HTTPS
protocol, also know as SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to provide 128-bit encryption to secure the management
session. The command line interface is accessible via SSH (Secure Shell) and supports SCP (Secure Copy) and
sftp (Secure File Transfer Protocol) to help provide maintenance support.
SNTP Support. MultiAccess includes an industry standard Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) client that
enables it to synchronize its clock with a remote time/clock server on the Internet. This feature is useful for
accounting purposes.
Remote Access
Comprehensive Security. MultiAccess provides an industry standard Radius Server and Radius Client for
authentication and authorization of thousands of user profiles using PAP and CHAP. In addition, it uses Network
Address Translation (NAT) to hide internal, non-routable IP addresses. If a Radius Server does not exist, one is
provided as part of the MultiAccess system. This Radius Server could provide authentication and authorization
information for this and other Radius Clients in use at your site.
About This Manual
This Quick Start Guide is intended to provide the experienced system administrator the information needed to
quickly get the MultiAccess up and running. A User Guide with more detailed information is provided on the
MultiAccess system CD in Acrobat (pdf) format.

Installation
Hardware Installation
The MultiAccess is designed to install either on a desktop or in a standard EIA 19“ rack, and is shipped with the
mounting hardware to install the MultiAccess in the rack. If installing in a rack, use the provided mounting hardware
and follow the rack enclosure manufacturer’s instructions to safely and securely mount the MultiAccess in the rack
enclosure. Proceed to the cabling procedure.
Cabling Procedure - Back Panel
Cabling your MultiAccess involves making the proper power, phone, and line (T1/E1/PRI) connections as described
and illustrated below.
The MultiAccess back panel has a fan, a power plug, POWER Switch (| / O), a RJ-11 phone LINE jack, a DB-9 COM1
jack, a DB-15 High-density DSUB (VIDEO) jack, two USB (Revision 1.1 compliant) jacks, four RJ-45 T1/E1/PRI line
jacks, and two Ethernet RJ-45 (Ethernet 1 & Ehternet 2) jacks.
1. Using an RJ-45 cable, connect one end to LI-1 (Line 1 Interface) on the back of the MultiAccess and the other
end to your first T1/E1/PRI line connection. If a second, third, or fourth line connection is required, connect an RJ45 cable for each of the line connections being used.
2. Connect a workstation to your local network, connect one end of an RJ-45 cable to the Ehternet 1 jack on the
back of the MultiAccess and the other end to the hub on your local network.
3. For advanced users, the Video and Keyboard connections are for manual intervention of the Operating System.
The default root level login password is linux (lower case) and the command to change the root level password is
“passwd”. The recommended mimumum password length is 8-characters. However, the MultiAccess will accept
less than 8-characters.
The Linux command to properly shut down the MultiAccess is shutdown -h now. The command to restart is
shutdown -r now.
4. With the MultiAccess Power switch in the off (Ο) position and using the supplied power cord, connect the
MultiAccess power plug to a live power outlet.
5. Place the MultiAccess Power switch to the on (|) position to turn on the MultiAccess
Caution: Never switch off MultiAccess Power until after you have performed the Shutdown
process. Refer to Administration > System Tools in Chapter 3 of the User Guide. If the MultiAccess is not properly
shut down before switching off Power, the next start may take a little longer, or in the worst case, data could be lost.
6. Proceed to Starting the MultiAccess.

Starting Your MultiAccess
This section of the Quick Start Guide covers the steps for connecting a workstation to the MultiAccess, starting up
the MultiAccess, opening the MultiAccess Communications Server Web Management program, performing the
time zone setup, and using the menu bar to navigate through the Web Management software screens.
1. Set the workstation IP address to 192.168.2.x subnet other than 192.168.2.1 which is the IP address of
Ethernet 1 (eth0) and 192.168.2.5 which is already assigned to Ethernet 2 (eht1).
2. Turn on power to the MultiAccess. When you hear 5 beeps, approximately 2 minutes after applying
power, continue with the next step.
Note: Depending on the version of MultiAccess (and other variables, like the previous shutdown and the
number of expansion modules) the duration needed to boot may vary. It may be helpful to connect an
external monitor and keyboard to determine the current status of the system. Five seconds after turning
on power, one beep is heard, indicating a successful POST of the mother board, next the BIOS detects
the hard drive from which the Linux operating system and appropriate drivers are loaded.
3. Bring up a Web browser on the workstation. At the browser’s address line, enter https://192.168.2.1 and
press the Enter key.
Important: Be sure to type https (http will not work).
4. In some environments, one or more Security Alert screen(s) may display. At the initial Security Alert
screen, click Yes and follow any additional on-screen prompts.

Connecting & Starting the MultiAccess
MultiAccess Quick Start Guide
Modem Setup
The Modem Setup group of menus configure the modems for usage with RAS, modem sharing, and faxing. The
default usage for each modem is RAS. The Modem Setup menu controls the parameters of the modems set to
RAS. If the MultiAccess modems are to be used for dialout, in a networking modem sharing environment, then
use the Modem Usage menu to change the usage to Modem Sharing. If the MultiAccess modems are to be used
for faxing with the integrated Hylafax™ Server, then use the Modem Usage menu to change the usage to Fax.
The Fax Setup menu is used to configure the Hylafax Server for sending and receiving faxes.
Note: The MultiAccess modems also support faxing with fax servers that are external to the MultiAccess via the
Modem Sharing usage.
Modem Usage
If you are using all your MultiAccess modems to provide dial-in PPP access, you do not have to modify the default
Modem Usage settings. The default usage is RAS. If you plan to use all or part of your MultiAccess modems for
dial-out, you will have to change the Modem usage settings for the selected modems to one of the Modem
Sharing options that best fit your needs. If you plan to use some or all your modems for faxing, you will have to
change the Modem Usage setting for the selected modems to Fax.
1. If you are using your MultiAccess in an RAS inbound PPP environment, you do not have to make any
changes in the Modem Usage menu.
Note: When implementing a combination of usage options, care must be given so that inbound calls do not
conflict with outbound calls. This may require changing the hunt group call distribution at the central office and
should be addressed with the provider of your T1/E1 digital line.
Caution: Modem sharing is accomplished by implementing a Telnet interface to the MultiAccess modems. Make
sure that care is taken to secure access to these ports via firewall or IP filter settings to prevent unauthorized use
of your modem resources.

Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. PN 82001423L
MultiAccess Quick Start Guide
Connecting & Starting the MultiAccess
If you are using your MultiAccess as a network modem pool, you will need to set up the Modem Usage menu to
support your configuration.
1. Click on the Usage drop down arrow and chose the Modem Sharing – authentication type that suits your
applicational needs.
2. Click on the Modem drop up or down arrow and select the tty modem(s) for modem sharing. You can choose
multiple modems by holding down the shift key.
3. When the Modem Usage is set to Modem Sharing, the following options become available:
Display Called Number - This parameter applies to inbound (received) calls when the Line Interface type is
PRI. The telephone number (or final digits) dialed by the originator will be displayed into the telnet socket
following the first “ring” message. The Called Number information (string of digits) is provided by the central
office switch and is commonly referred to as DNIS. The MA30120 does not support DNIS when the Line
Interface type is T1-RBS.
Reverse Dial - This parameter enables two features, comma dialing and reverse dial mode. When enabled,
the dial string can include the use of commas, used to create a pause between digits of the dial string (most
commonly used to specify the extension of the answering modem).
Example: “atdt18003334444,,,,,4321”. Each comma creates a 2 second pause. 4321 is the extension of the
desitination phone line\modem.
Reverse dial mode is where the dial string includes the letter “r” at the very end of the dial string, the purpose
of which is to instruct the MA30120 modem to switch from originate to answer mode after dialing. For
example: “atdt17637175549r”.
Please Note: When Reverse Dial is enabled, the dial string must include the tone (t) command, for example,
atdtstring .

Connecting & Starting the MultiAccess
MultiAccess Quick Start Guide
Raw Mode - If Yes, this sets the TCP port to a RAW socket. User data is treated “as is” and the Telnet
Command Escape capability is disabled. If No, this allows the Telnet command parser to look for escape
sequences that are used to communicate control functions. A common example is to support RFC-2217 Com
Port Control.
Pool - If you want to access a specific modem, accept the default of No. Each modem will be given a specific
TCP port number, starting at 7000+. If you select pool = Yes, then all selected modems are accessed via port
number 6000 – creating a first available pool, starting with the lowest numbered tty port.
SSL - Support is made available when the usage is Modem Sharing with Authentication. This is only used
with SSL capable Telnet Clients. Site Certificate information needs to be configured appropriately. Contact

Fax Setup
Fax setup is initiated when you allocate modem(s) to the integrated Hylafax™ Fax Server. This is achieved by
setting the selected modem’s usage to Fax. The Fax Setup screen is used to configure the integrated Hlyfax
Server for sending and receiving faxes.
The sending of outbound faxes via the Hylafax Server requires the use of a Hylafax compatible Fax Client
software, e.g., Multi-Tech’s FaxFinder Client. The General Fax Setup group is used to add Fax Clients to the
Hylafax server.
The Fax Client must be installed on each workstation that you wish to send faxes from. The Fax Client must use
the credentials defined in the General Fax Setup group to submit faxes for sending. The Fax Client is not used for
receiving faxes.
Inbound faxes received from the T1/E1 digital line are converted to tiff files and then emailed from the Hylafax
server to the specified recepient. The Fax Delivery Setup group is used to configure the routing of inbound faxes.

Outbound Fax Client Data Base
The outbound fax client data base is generated in the General Fax Setup group. The current outbound fax client
data base is shown in the table at the bottom of the General Fax Setup group. The credentials defined here are to
be used by the fax client. The fax client uses these credentials when accessing the Hylafax server.
1. To establish a fax client data base, enter each user name and password in their respective windows and
click the Add button for each entry.
Note: All fax clients can use the same set of credentials, or a unique set for each client can be added.
Fax Modem Settings
These settings are used to define the fax station identity and other administrative variables. The default settings
are normally sufficient with the exception of the “Rings Before Answer” parameter. When the Called Number
feature is used, the Rings Before Answer must be set to 2 for all the ports. Each Fax Modem is to be configured
with a unique Local Identifier, which is used as the TSI (Transmit Station Identifier) when sending faxes and is
included in the body of the email when receiving faxes. You can limit the maximum number of pages being
received.
Inbound Fax Data Base
The Fax Delivery Setup group is used to configure the routing of inbound faxes. The current fax routing table is
shown at the bottom of this group. Who the fax should be delivered to (routed to) is determined by one of two
routing methods:
A) “Route by Device” (what tty port the fax was received on),
B) Route by Called Number” (number dialed by the remote sender).
Route by Device is a static delivery method, where all faxes that are received on that particular port will be sent
to the email address defined for that port.
1. To deliver the fax based on the port (device) it was received on, select the radio button “Route by Device” and
then highlight the ttyMXxx port(s) from the corresponding window in the Fax Delivery Setup group,
2. Enter the email address of the fax recipient in the Email window and then click add.
Route by Called Number is a dynamic delivery method that requires the use of a PRI line (T1-PRI or E1-PRI line
type). Route entries are to match the DNIS information (provided by Telco per call) to an email address. The
Telco switch will (via PRI signaling) provide DNIS digits to the MultiAccess at the time of ringing (call setup). How
many digits will Telco be providing? The remote originator of the fax may dial 11 digits (1-800-333-4444) but
Telco may only provide the last x number of digits (where x is commonly = 4). DNIS digits provided by Telco is a
variable to be determined at the time of ordering and installing the PRI service. If no Called Number route entries
can be matched to the DNIS provided for that call - the default route entry will be used.
1. To deliver the fax based on the number dialed, select the radio button “Route by Called Number”.
2. Enter the email address of the fax recipient in the Email window.
3. Enter the DNIS string matching the number dialed and then click add.
The entry should be added to the route table found at the bottom of the screen.

User Authentication
To determine User Authentication you must define how the Radius Client is going to be used, that is, are you
using an external Radius Server on your network or are you going to use the Radius Server in the MultiAccess.
The Radius Client can point to either an external Radius Server or the Radius Server within the MultiAccess.
Note: When using the internal Radius Server, you must use the IP address of network card 1 (eth0).
Radius Client
1. Choose User Authentication >Radius Client.
2. Click on Line Interface and select the Line number you selected up in the Line Interface screen.
3. You can choose an Authentication Type, but Multi-Tech recommends leaving the Authentication Type at the
default radius.
4. We recommend that you leave Allow Local Logins set to the default of no.

Enter the Shared Secret for the Radius Server in the RADIUS Shared Secret window.
In the Remote Host Address window, set this field to the starting IP address of your IP address pool
(addresses that are to be assigned to the dial in users). The IP address needs to have a + (plus symbol) after
the number (e.g., 192.168.1.150+). The plus symbol instructs “Portslave” to create an address pool starting
with the address you enterred. Portslave determines the “ending” address number by adding up all the Line
Interface selections that have their “Port Selection” set to “All”. If the MultiAccess server has multiple line
interface modules and all ports are to use an address pool, set this field to the same address
(192.168.1.150+) for each line interface.
Enter the IP address of your primary name server in the DNS Server Address 1. This establishes the name

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
Version 2, June 1991
Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU
General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software
is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any
other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU
Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make
sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive
source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that
you know you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender
the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you
modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights
that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these
terms so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal
permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software.
Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for
this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they
have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a
free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have
made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.

MultiAccess Quick Start Guide
GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be
distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a
"work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work
containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language.
(Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The
act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work
based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what
the Program does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided
that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty;
keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the
Program a copy of this License along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in
exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and
copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these
conditions:
a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part
thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive
use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no
warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the
user how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such an announcement,
your work based on the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the
Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its
terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same
sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this
License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of
who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is
to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the
Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under
the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of physically
performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of
Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed
only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord
with Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an executable work,
complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files,
plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source
code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
itself accompanies the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering
equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third
parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any
attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights
under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their
licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to
modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this
24
Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. PN 82001423L
MultiAccess Quick Start Guide
License Agreement
License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your
acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program or
works based on it.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a license
from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not
impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing
compliance by third parties to this License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent
issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of
this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy
simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not
distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License
would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is
intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of
any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
implemented by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software
distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he
or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces,
the original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution
limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such
case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public License from time to time.
Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or
concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version number of this License which
applies to it and "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any
later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License,
you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution conditions are different, write
to the author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free
Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving
the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
NO WARRANTY
11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT
PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR
OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR
ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR
DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR
INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE
OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
