Introduction .
The Middleware has two distinct purposes. First, it facilitates communication between our servers and hardware devices.
This allows ‘In’ and ‘Out’ punches from remote locations to be collected and sent to a central location for processing. The
Middleware is designed to operate at multiple locations and can process data from different types of devices. Once
collected and processed, information becomes available as part of an employee’s timesheet.
The Middleware can also serve as a tool that automates the upload of information from your network to central servers.
Such information includes Employee Data, Accrual Balances, Cost Centers and Punches. The Middleware can be
pointed to a specific directory on your network to retrieve a file that will then upload automatically.
Purpose -
Clock In/Out Data needs to get from hardware device to central server(s).
-
Various employee and configuration data needs to be pushed from central server(s) to data collection devices (i.e. valid employee IDs, default cost centers, employee templates for Biometric devices, etc).
-
Automate the upload of information from your network to central server(s).
Problem -
Hardware device is usually connected to company’s internal network.
-
Due to strict security it is virtually impossible to establish direct connection to a data collection device from outside a
company’s internal network.
-
Most data collection devices are designed to work in a polled mode only. That is, a device cannot initiate
communication, but waits for an outside entity to do so.
-
For those devices that can initiate communication, most are not capable of doing so via HTTP/HTTPS and in
compliance with standard Firewall or Proxy settings.
Solution -
Middleware is designed as store-and-forward software.
-
Positioned inside a company’s network, the Middleware is capable of communicating with various data collection
devices on that network.
-
At configured intervals Middleware connects to central server(s) via a HTTP or HTTPS. At this point, data that has
been collected from various data collection devices will be relayed to the central server(s). In return, available updates
to employee IDs, Biometric templates, etc are pushed from the central server(s) to Middleware so data may be
distributed to each data collection device as specified.

Turning on the Battery Backup
The battery backup, which comes with all of the HP devices and is built into the back of the device, will keep the device
running if there is a power outage. The HP uses an internal switching regulator to obtain internal operational power. It
accepts input voltages from 12 to 24 VDC or 12 to 24 VAC at 50 to 60 Hz. The design of the internal power supply is
such that any range of the above input voltages may be used and still provide proper battery charge voltage and battery
backup operation. A switch-over to battery power is automatic and occurs when the input voltage falls to approximately
10.5 volts. At that time the internal battery charger is disabled to save power and uninterrupted operation continues on
battery power. When input power is restored, the HP switches off of battery operation and the battery charger is reenabled to recharge the battery. Battery charge voltage is set at approximately 13.65 volts, and battery charge current
is limited to approximately 50 mA. A fully discharged battery requires approximately 12 hours of charge to fully recover.
Additional options installed and specific configurations within the HP make it difficult to predict precisely how long battery
support will last, but in general, two hours of battery operation can be expected. While operating on battery backup due
to loss of main input power, the battery output voltage is constantly monitored by internal circuitry. If the battery voltage
reaches approximately 9.5 volts the HP automatically shuts down. This is done to prevent full exhaustion of the battery.
A yellow indicator on the top panel illuminates to indicate that the HP is running off of battery power. This indicator
extinguishes when main input power is restored. As for any electronic device, we recommend plugging the device into a
surge protector.
1. To turn on the battery backup, you will need to look for a small, black plastic piece in the back of the clock that is
connected to one prong of a two prong jack. You will see J7 printed on the board in front of the prongs.
2. The battery backup is turned on by placing the plastic jumper on top of both prongs to close the circuit.

Connecting to RSI HP Series (Modem)
NOTE – 64-Bit operating systems are not supported by the Middleware when using any modem, USB or serial
device.
Initial Setup:
1. Because Middleware is written in Java programming language, certain files need to be moved from the Middleware
directory to the Java directory on the computer where Middleware is installed. Moving the files allow Java to work
with the modem-based Hand Punch.
- Open the C:\MW\lib directory on your computer.
- Copy the comm.jar, javax.comm..properties, win32comm.dll files.
- Go to C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_05\lib and paste the files.
NOTE – depending on where the Java directory is saved on your computer, the path may vary.
Also, make sure there is a modem where the installation is (server, etc.)
Configuring Middleware:
1. Within the Middleware, under the Devices window click the
button
2. In the Device Settings window enter in the Name, Time Zone, and Type of Device.
3.
You will then view the following settings, which need to be configured on the device -

-
-
Reader Id - should be 1 by default.
Phone – phone number assigned to the handpunch. If the client needs to dial a ‘9’ or any other digit when calling
out you will need to include that digit in front of the phone number. Example – 919086472788 (This number
MUST be the client’s number)
Com Port - on which port the modem was installed. Example - COM3
Modem Init String - any number and/or symbol (*,#) that must be dialed prior to the telephone number.
Modem Baud - the number of signaling elements that occur each second. Example - 300 baud means that 300
bits are transmitted each second (abbreviated 300 bps).
Dial At Times (hh:mm, hh:mm) - the rate at which the Middleware will update and pull information from the
device.
Use Badge Id - check if the employee’s will be using their Badge ID to punch in. If left unchecked, user will have
to use their Employee ID.
-
Synchronize Hand Templates – check if you want hand templates to be synchronized from the time and
attendance system to the device.
-
Backup Hand Templates – allows the clock to send hand templates to the system to be matched through an
employee’s ID or badge ID depending on which is used.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Updating Middleware
To ensure the most updated version of Middleware is being used, you can download the latest version using either of the
following methods:
1. Open the Middleware Application and click the “Download Latest Version” button. This will send the appropriate
files to the Middleware to upgrade it. The application will restart and open back up with the updated version.
2. Within your Admin account, click on the “View Middleware Installation” button (laptop with arrow icon) next to the
company for whom you would like to upgrade. In this screen, select the checkbox next to the installation and click
Download New Code at the bottom of the screen. This will remotely send the appropriate files to the Middleware
application to upgrade. This process will take longer than the first option, as all of the files are being sent
remotely.
Middleware Connectivity Troubleshooting
Command Prompts to Use:
NOTE - To get to the command Prompt, click Start > Run. Type in cmd, then press Enter.
1. ping [IP Address] – the basic troubleshooting tool for TCP/IP. It is used to determine whether basic TCP/IP
connectivity has been established between the computer and device. In the CMD, type ping[SPACE]IP Address.
For example, ping 10.11.12.25…
a. Request Timed Out means that there is no communication between the computer and device on the
network. Essentially, no packets should be lost in the ping (see picture below).
73
b. Reply from [IP ADDRESS] means that communication was received by the device to the computer on the
network. 4 packets sent and received means that there is a full connection between device and computer
(see picture below).
2. ipconfig – displays the current status of your network adapters. For example,
NOTE - If your computer indicates an IP address in the 169.254.x.x range, the DHCP server isn’t working.
74
3. ipconfig /all – displays all current TCP/IP network configuration values and refreshes Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol DHCP and Domain Name System DNS settings. For example,
4. java –version – displays the version of java that is running on the computer. For example,

Hardware Troubleshooting
HP Series
1. The only person with Supervisor rights in the clock has left the company, how do I enroll new employees
and allow the new manager to have Supervisor rights?
a. Login to the account as the System Administrator and go to Company > Employees > View/Edit.
b. Click on the Edit Employee Information button next to the employee that should have full access to the
menus on the clock (they will need to have a hand template in the clock).
c.
In the Hardware Settings box, change the security level of the employee in the dropdown box to
Security and then click Save.
d. Allow some time (15-20 minutes) for the Middleware to communicate the changes to the clock.
e. Alternately you can perform a cold boot on the clock and then add a supervisor. The employees’ existing
hand templates will be downloaded back into the clock when the Middleware communicates with the
device.
2. The clock doesn’t allow anyone to punch in/out, how can I fix it?
a. First, make sure the employee(s) punching have a hand template in the system by going to Company >
Employees > View/Edit and check for a hand template in the Hardware Settings box.
b. Second, try to perform a recalibration on the camera for the clock. A user with supervisor rights would
need to access the back menu, then when it prompts ENTER PASSWORD press [1] and [ENTER]. Press
the YES/# button on Recal? And take note of the specs that the display shows. (i.e. R = 0, C = 1, E =
100).
c.
Third, check to see if other users can punch in/out of the clock. If it is just a few users having difficulty,
you can set the Reject Threshold for those users. For example, if a user had a Reject Threshold of 100t
hen any score they receive below 100 when punching would be accepted. This can be changed in the
Edit Employee Information button under the Hardware Settings box.
3. I have the RSI HP1000, how many employees can the device hold?
a. RSI HP50 can hold up to 50 users on the clock
b. RSI HP1000 can hold up to 100 users on the clock
c.
RSI HP3000 can hold up to 512 users on the clock but can be expanded through a memory upgrade
d. RSI HP4000 can hold up to 530 users on the clock but can be expanded through a memory upgrade
4. How does the HP1000 do job costing vs. the HP3000?
a. The HP1000 can do one level of job costing by going into the Device Settings in the Middleware.
b. Click on the dropdown box for Job Costing and choose one of the Cost Center Trees to use.
c.
When this is enabled, the clock will prompt for ENTER DEPARTMENT after you enter in your ID and
Hand Template. The user would enter in the department number and press ENTER. They would then
receive their score.
d. The HP3000 can do up to 3 levels of job costing by enabling the F1 Function for the clock in the Device
Settings located in the Middleware.
e. There you can choose which Cost Center Tree to use, as well as how it is prompted on the clock.
f.
To utilize the job costing feature, on the clock the user would have to press the F1 button located on the
middle right of the keypad and then enter in the Department number. Or, on the HP1000, press the YES
button.
NOTE - If there is still an issue, please note the steps it took to get to the error to help better troubleshoot the
issue.

SY-715
1.
Why don’t my cards read on the device?
a. In the Middleware, under card type is the correct type listed? For example, if you are using Magnetic
cards with a Magnetic reader, but the type listed is Barcode, the device will not recognize the cards.
b. The device will also not recognize any cards other than the ones that it is made to use. (i.e. barcodes will
not work with Magnetic readers, and vice versa).
c.
Another possible reason could be if Magnetic cards themselves were demagnetized. This could be
caused by a magnetic environment; placing these cords too close to credit cards for an extended length
of time, etc.
d. Also, please make sure that the bottom of the card (Barcode or Magstripe) is facing down on the reader
when you swipe.
2.
The device is not being recognized by the Middleware, but I have them both configured correctly?
a. Make sure the Ethernet cord is plugged into the middle port on the bottom of the device.
b. Check the IP address in both, and try to ping it with/without the Ethernet cord plugged in. This will tell us if
another device is competing with the Synel for connection.
3. What is the difference between “Tips” and “Extra Money” on these devices? How does that work?
a. To enable “Tips,” check the Collect Money checkbox within the Middleware Device Settings for the Synel
715.
b. You can also change the message that is shown on the display of the device in the Money Prompt field.
c.
The Money Store field is where the entered amount will be shown on the employee’s timesheet.
d. How it works:
i. When enabled, the user will swipe their badge and then be prompted to “Enter Tips” (or a
message of your choosing in the Money Prompt field).
ii. The user has to enter in the amount and then press Enter.
e. To enable “Extra Pay,” check the Enabled checkbox within the Middleware Device Settings for the Synel
715 Device.
f.
Here you can also choose what message that you would like to appear for the user to know to swipe their
badge after pressing F1.
g. There is also a field for the message of how you want to prompt a user to enter in the amount of the extra
pay.
h. The “Store As” field allows you to choose what extra pay the user should have the amount shown in their
timesheet.
i.
4.
How it works:
i.
When enabled, the user will have to press the F1 button on the device.
ii.
Next, it will ask for them to swipe their badge.
iii.
Then enter in the amount for the extra pay.
iv.
Using this feature allows the users to enter in money to their timesheet without actually having to
punch in/out.
Why doesn’t the clock beep when we swipe in/out?
a. Check the Middleware Device Settings for the Synel, make sure the checkbox Beep On Swipe OK is
checked.
77
5.
Why does the device say ‘PROGRAMMING’ on the display?
a. The display will read PROGRAMMING when the device and the Middleware are communicating to one
another. This happens when Settings are changed or when the following buttons in the Functions box for
the Middleware are pressed; REPROGRAM, UPLOAD SETTINGS, UPLOAD CODES, UPLOAD
EMPLOYEES, CLEAR BUFFER, and RESET BUFFER.
b. Using the Upload Times field within the Settings box on Middleware, you have the ability to program when
these updates occur.
6.
How do I know if the device is connecting properly?
a. Check the Middleware Logs on the bottom of the Middleware program to make sure there are no errors
such as ‘COULD NOT READ SYNEL BR Connection Timed Out: Connect’
b. In the Middleware Device box, click the FUNCTIONS button next to the Synel and then click on the GET
STATUS button. This will give you a reading if the device is connecting, if not it will say ‘ERROR
READING SYNEL: Could Not Read Synel’.
7.
How do I enable Job Costing on the device?
a. Go to the Middleware Device Settings, there is a dropdown box next to Job Costing. Enable the Cost
Center Tree # for the job costing you would like to use.
Verifone Tranz 330/380
1. When I reprogram the device I receive an error that reads ‘DUP SER CALL CS’?
a. This means that the device has a duplicate serial number loaded in the Verifone Installations.
b. The serial number on the bottom of the device is more of a reference, the system and device will accept
any number and length as its serial number.
c.
Reprogram the device again using a serial number of your choice. (i.e. add a digit to the front or back of
the existing number) in both the system and device.
NOTE - Make sure to scratch off the serial number on the back of the device and add the new number for
troubleshooting purposes.
2. I am receiving an error that reads ‘LOST COMM W/HOST’, what does this mean?
a. This error means that the terminal has lost communication with host. This is most likely due to bad signal
strength on the phone line.
b. Other errors include:
i. BAD RX COMM – The device has not received the host’s information correctly.
ii. BAD TX COMM – The host has not received the device’s information correctly.
iii. HOST DISCONNECT – The host was disconnected from the device before the information has
been sent completely.
iv. NO ANSWER – The device is receiving a busy signal from host or call is not being answered by
host.
v. NO ENQ FROM HOST – The device did not receive a response from the host before the
specified connection period.
vi. WAITING FOR LINE – The device cannot dial out because the phone line it is using is in use by
another device / person.
3. In the Verifone Installations on the system, what is the Validate Employee checkbox used for?
a. When the badge Ids are linked to the users profile in the system, having this checkbox enabled allows the
user to see their name on the screen when they punch.
78
b. When this checkbox is disabled, the system will show an extra field that displays a dropdown box that will
allow you to choose the length of the badge that you want the device to read (Truncate Badge To XX).
The badge lengths can be from 0 (read the entire badge without hiding any digits) to 18 (which allows for
the last 18 digits to be read on the card). EX. Badge ID 33121212121212129898 truncated to 0 will read
exactly this way, truncated to 18 would read 121212121212129898.
4. I have the Prompt In/Out checkbox enabled in the Verifone Installations, how is it used on the clock?
a. When this is enabled, the user must press [1] on the device first then swipe their badge to clock in.
b. When the user is clocking out, they must press [2] on the device then swipe their badge.
c.
If a user does not press [1] for in or [2] for out before they swipe their badge, the punch will not be
registered.
ZK Software
1. The device either doesn’t work or isn’t setup correctly because every time I try to punch with my finger it
keeps saying “Please Try Again,” how do I fix it?
a. This means that either the user is not enrolled on the clock (check the Middleware Functions button and
click on the Query Users Functionality) or that the finger is not placed on the reader correctly. The finger
should be placed at a slight angle with the finger placed directly in the middle of the reader.
2. The clock isn’t connecting to the system; there is an error in the Middleware that reads “IMCP Port
Unreachable.” What do I do now?
a. You will need to have an IT person open port 4371. Without this port open, the clock and Middleware
cannot communicate.
3. Yesterday when I was enrolled I could add employees to the clock but today it doesn’t let me punch in or
access the back menu?
a. Do you have a profile within the system? If you do, try different fingerprints, password, etc.
b. You can query users on the clock within the functions, which will show Badge ID, Password, Last Name,
and Security.
NOTE – An employee MUST have an Information Profile and Badge ID in the system prior to being enrolled on
the clock. Otherwise, once a connection is made, they will be deleted from the clock.
4. When I try to add a new employee to the clock and enter in their Badge ID, the device keeps giving me an
error and then goes to another number that I didn’t pick; why?
a. This means that ID number is already in use. The clock will then go to the first available number after the
number you have tried. (Ex: you entered 1234, but it was in use. The clock will suggest 1235).
5. When I punch in with my fingerprint, I don’t see punches coming over to the timesheet. Why not? Where
are they?
a. Check to see if the device is giving a verbal “Thank You” message to show that the punch was accepted,
and that the user has an employee profile. If the user was added before an employee profile is created,
they will be deleted from the clock when the Middleware connects with the device, any punches done
before then will be saved in the Unprocessed Punches report. If they are able to clock in on the clock,
check the All Punches or Raw Time Punches report to see if the punches are there).
