I. Installing Go! via the Internet
(Service pack 1 must be installed)
A. Printer Cabling:
1. Printer Cable Acquisition
Parallel cables are used to connect itinerary and hardcopy (but not ticket) printers to the hosting
workstations. Standard parallel printer cables in lengths up to 20 feet can be purchased in
prefabricated lengths at a variety of computer stores and other retail outlets that carry computer
equipment. Use Standard Parallel cables ONLY not the Bi-directional Parallel cables that are also
sold.
Serial cables must be used to connect ticket printers to the hosting workstations, and can also be
used to connect itinerary and hardcopy printers, if sufficient serial ports are available. Serial
printer cables must be fabricated per the following instructions, or provide by Worldspan or a
vendor approved by Worldspan. These cables are not available for purchase over the counter at
any retailer. Cables used by existing Worldspan customers on Worldspan for Windows v4.2 or
above, or any previous version of Go! Res may be reused with this installation.
2. Serial Printer Cable Pinning (Please read and refer to drawings a, b and c below!)
This section outlines the pin out of the cable referred to in installation instructions for the
Genicom1600, TI810, TI885, Unimark Sprite, and A3300/3302 printers. This pin configuration is
necessary to successfully connect from the serial port of a Go! via the Internet workstation.
Three cable pin outs are provided below:
Cable 1 is a standard 25 to 25 pin serial printer cable for Worldspan Hardware Gateway (4.11)
Agencies.
Cable 2 is an adapter used to convert a 25pin cable to a 9 pin cable. This cable attached to cable 1
will create cable 3.
Cable 3 is a standard 9 to 25 pin serial printer cable for Worldspan Software Gateway (4.2)
Agencies.
Note: Cable 3 is the one required for Go! Res via the Internet printer connection, either as actual
Cable 3, or fabricated from Cable 1 + the Cable 2 Pigtail Adapter.
If the agency is already using cable 3, then it is ready for use as is.
If the agency is using cable 1, then create cable 3 by either of the following methods listed below,
or discard any existing cable, and use a new cable 3.
For new installations, no previous Worldspan installation or cables present, use cable 3.
Cable 3 can be built from cable 1 two ways:
Building the cable 2 pigtail adapter, and using with existing cable 1, or
From cable 1, by replacing the 25-pin female end with a 9-pin female end, and repining it
accordingly.
Notes:
The color coding is only “suggested” as a standard, any color wire could be used as long as the
same pin to pin connection is made from end to end of the cable.
The 9 to 25 pin Pigtail adapter is NOT the same cable or pin out as a TRAMS Pigtail adapter.

F = 12" Hardcopy
2. Connecting Printer to PC
1. Attach the large end of the serial cable to the back of the printer in the port next to the power cord.
If parallel cable being used (not a ticket printer), attach larger end of the cable to the port opposite the
power cord on the back.
(** NOTE: If setting up as Ticket Printer. Refer to step 7. Parallel connection is NOT supported
when printer is to be used for ticketing!)
2. If setting up as a ticket printer, attach the smaller end to an open COM port on the back of the
workstation pc (ticket printers must be connected to Serial Ports). If setting up as any other type of
printer (itinerary, hardcopy) attach the smaller end to either an open COM or LPT port, depending on
the type of cable, serial to a com port, parallel to an LPT port.
3. Note the port name cabled to: COM1 = (A) or COM2 = (B), or LPT1 to be used in a later step.

K. Host Print Queue/Device Associations
Every workstation which is expected to run Go! Res shall be set up to be a gatekeeper, or one who makes
the YSTR and YSTP inputs to start and stop the flow of host documents to host printers. The following
steps establish the associations between host printer queues (there is a host printer queue for each type of
host document produced, such as ticket and itinerary) and the printers which will be used to receive host
documentation. They shall be completed from every workstation.
This association is established in the Go! Res Printer Configuration function, accessed from the Tools link
on the black navigation bar. An association must be established for each type of host document printer. It
involves:
Selecting a particular host queue. See the following table for the print queue number, and associated
documents. The most commonly used queues are:
- 1 for tickets
- 3 for itinerary/invoices
- 5 for accounting system interface records
- 6 for hardcopies of host displays (JT-type inputs mostly).
- 8 for electronic ticket plain paper coupons.
(See the below table on host printer queues, taken from INFO DQ on the Worldspan mainframe
help pages)
Selecting the printer which will receive the documents being sent down this particular queue.
Repeating these steps for each host printer queue used by the agency.
Repeating this process at every workstation expected to use Go! Res.
For additional instructions on establishing these associations, print and follow the instructions for these
steps from Online Help within Go! Res:
Access Help from the black navigation bar in Go! Res.
Under Main Help Links on the right side pane, access the Printer Configuration link near the bottom of
the list.

L. Mainframe Database Table Updates
From this point forward the Agency will be involved in the installation process, mainly verifying and/or
making the following settings:
AIR Table – new printer/CRT address associations.
AIR Table – dual bin and pocket itinerary settings.
AIR Table – EZ Options settings.
Updating ticket and invoice number tables.
ePricing accesses, ensuring there are sufficient access for the agents expected to use ePricing.
Accounting system settings, both in the accounting system and Worldspan mainframe.
Finally, the agency will drive several host documents, to verify that the installation was completed
successfully, and that all the printer and mainframe configuration necessary to drive tickets and
itinerary/invoices is complete and correct.
1. Agency Information Record (A.I.R. Table)
a. Workstation/Host Printer Address Association
All Worldspan subscribers have an Agency Information Record, more commonly known as the Air
Table. The entry used to display the Agency Information Record (A.I.R.) is 4G (without the IATA
number).

Dial In
Address
The AIR table stores:
The dial-in printer queue (the address stored in the DIAL IN field) as the address for the ticket,
itinerary, and hardcopy printers.
The CRT address of FFFFFF to be associated to the dial-in printer queue, for each of the printer
types used. Storing FFFFFF allows the printer queue address to be associated with the pooled DAs
each user gets upon starting a Go! via the Internet session.
Also, the AIR tables of any other locations who send host documents to this location (such as other
branches or 24-hour services) need to be updated with the address of this location’s dial-in printer
queue, as the printer addresses (replacing this location’s printer addresses which were previously
stored).
This is accomplished by adding FFFFFF as the CRT addresses associated with the dial-in printer queue
address. An FA duty code is necessary. Print and follow the instructions for these steps from Online
Help:
Access Help from the black navigation bar.
Under Main Help Links on the right side pane, access the Printer Configuration link near the
bottom of the list.
Select 5. Update the Printer Association Table and Log Stock Control Numbers
The agency must update the following tables:
Page 20 of 23
4G#MK
4G#ME
4G#ML
Access HELP 4G and INFO 4G in the mainframe help system for additional information and
specific inputs to update the AIR table.
2. Pocket Itinerary Settings – Genicom 1600 Printer
The CAP field in the AIR table must be set to 003G, in order to print Pocket Itineraries.
The EZ Options field must be updated to include P for Pocket Itinerary, if used.
If these are not set correctly, contact the Worldspan Technical Support Center (TSC) to have set.
3. Ticket and Invoice Number Tables
The ticket number table (4GS) for the ticket printer (whose address is the dial-in printer queue’s
address) must be updated with the proper Stock Control Numbers (SCNs).
The invoice number table (4GI) for the itinerary/invoice printer (whose address is the dial-in printer
queue’s address) must be updated with the proper invoice numbers.
4. E-Pricing Accesses
The DIAL PP AUTH field must be set to the number of agents expected to be using E-Pricing (Power
Products) at the same time, typically the same as the number of workstations associated with the SID
(at the base office and offsite). This is accomplished through activation inputs.
See INFO 4PLIACT for information on activation inputs. Move Down (MD) several times, and
look for the line DIAL-IN USERS - ALL TIERS AVAILABLE, for information specific to dialin (Internet) connections to Worldspan.
See HELP 4PLIACT for specific inputs. Move Down (MD) to the inputs for DIAL IN USER.
The number of activations must not exceed DIAL PP AUTH setting in the AIR table. If the number of
activations exceeds the number of authorizations, contact your Worldspan representative to have the
number of authorizations increased.
M. Accounting System File Settings (Back Office Accounting setup for Go! Res)

The file Logair.DAT collects the individual TAIR messages generated by host ticketing transactions.
The back office accounting systems read this file in order to get the financial data from ticketing
transactions.
2. Logair.DAT Delimiter Character (all Accounting Systems)
Traditionally, individual TAIR records in Logair.DAT are separated by a slash ( / ) character. With
Go! Res, the separator character changes to an End Item ( # ) character. It is necessary to change back
office accounting systems, in particular TRAMS, to recognize the different separator character.
To verify which character is used, display the Logair.DAT file in Notepad. To change, refer to the
instructions for the version of TRAMS in use.
a. TRAMS for DOS
These settings are necessary for records which have ML0504, or the # as the delimiter. Within
TRAMS:
1. Go to Utilities / Setup / Hardware
2. ALT I to move the curser to the Interface Configurations
3. Enter to highlight the CRS Res System
4. F5 and select Worldspan then Enter to move to the PORT section
5. F5 and select FILE then Enter to move to the SETTINGS section
6. Type the exact path and file name of the TAIR location.
C:\WSPAN\HOSTPRT\LOGAIR.DAT
Note: DOS filenames are limited to 8 characters.
7. Enter to move to the OPTIONS section
8. Type -w=#
9. F9 to save settings
b. TRAMS (for Windows):
TRAMS is similar except that adjustments to these settings are made in the TRAMS/Download
screen, before the actual download session (the settings are saved once the TRAMS/Download
screen is closed):
ALIAS = TRAMS [can vary]
CRS = Worldspan Images to Disk
Options = -w=# (this is the option which allows TRAMS to recognize the # separator character).
PNR FILE PATH = C:\WSPAN\HOSTPRT\LOGAIR.DAT
Clicking on the PNR file path and locating the folder also confirms the link. Okay to read from a
network drive by browsing...i.e.
\\WK01900\WSPAN\HOSTPRT\LOGAIR.DAT
Note: For additional information, or other Accounting Systems, contact your back office
accounting system vendor.
If you are using TRAMS, visit www.trams.com. Take the Download link, then the links for the
Latest Manuals and Help Files.

N. Drive Host Documents
In order to verify the proper setup of host printers, and the necessary environment, drive at least:
A normal ticket
A conjunction ticket
An itinerary/invoice
A hardcopy (JT-type input)
An Interface Record (TAIR)
Note: send actual documents, built from actual PNRs, do not rely on a simulation method like ZDIAG.
Upon completion of successfully sending host documents, the installation is complete. Proceed to the Post
Installation/Pre-Startup Checklist, page Error! Bookmark not defined., to be sure the agency is ready to begin
operations.
