Configuring VCS to Use Vocera Client Gateway

You can specify that VCS is to use TCP to communicate with the Vocera Client Gateway server instead of using Comet to communicate with the Vocera Voice Server. This is recommended, as it improves resource management on the VCS clients.

Note: Vocera Voice Server 5.3.1 or later and VCS 3.2 or later are prerequisites if you want to use TCP to communicate with the Vocera Client Gateway server. To use TCP to communicate with the Vocera Client Gateway server when using devices that operate on Wi-Fi only, VCS 3.6 or later is required.
  1. Start the VMP Administrator and select Configuration > System Options.

    The System Options dialog box appears.

  2. Scroll down to the Integrations > Vocera Voice section.
  3. Set the Use VCG for VCS client connection management option to Yes.
  4. Click OK to save your changes.

On the Vocera Client Gateway server, you can edit a properties file named vgwproperties.txt to control the behavior of the VCS and VMP interface. For more details, see the Vocera Voice Server Telephony Configuration Guide.
