  • 6. Introduction to Web Conferencing and Remote Support INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 If you have a Web Conferencing/Remote Support ID and password, click LOGON to access your Web Conferencing/Remote Support office where you have additional options. Without a Web Conferencing/Remote Support ID and password, you can access Public Web Conferencing meetings, documents or recordings through the Public Area. Prior to connecting to a meeting, click TEST BROWSER, which will run a system test that checks your browser configuration to ensure you have everything needed to successfully connect to a Web Conferencing meeting or Remote Support session. At the bottom of the menu area, you will find the current date and time and the version number of the Web Conferencing and Remote Support software that is running on the server. CHANGES AND NEW FEATURES This section defines the changes and new features for Inter-Tel Web Conferencing and Remote Support v4.5. • Added Audio (Voice Chat) and AVI Player — Voice Chat indicator: The voice chat icon located in the attendee list will appear green to all participants when someone is speaking. • Added the Install Add-ons link to both the My Office and Public Area pages. From the Install Add-ons page, all available downloads can be accessed. — Added Desktop Installable Client: This new feature allows you to install the con- trol panels for Web Conferencing and Remote Support locally on the host or users’ computer. This new feature allows for faster and more stable connections. — Outlook Form Template (OFT): Allows meetings to be created from within Out- look. • Removed Address Book Import button and replaced it with: — OFT (see above) — Mailto: This function allows the host to use its local e-mail program as the mail client rather than using the Conferencing Server’s e-mail program. Refer to “Edit My Profile” on page 10 for information on configuring this function. • Added Two new tabs to the Public Area page for Remote Support. — Agents: This tab displays all available agents — Queue: This tab lists all queues. Both of these tabs are available without having to log on. To join a Remote Sup- port session, click the Queue tab and select the appropriate queue. This method provides the quickest access to a session. Page 2 Changes and New Features
  • 7. Introduction to Web Conferencing and Remote Support INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 • New Create Meeting Page — The Create Meeting page now features a Meeting Details tab and an Options tab.

  • 8. Introduction to Web Conferencing and Remote Support INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 • Improved Office Page layout: — Action items (Join, Edit, Unscheduled) are now at the beginning of the line. Also, the Join item is replaced with Register if the meeting host requires attendees to register. — Added Invite link: An Invite action item has been placed on the Hosts office page next to the other meeting action items. When accessed, it loads the new Meeting Details page that allows the host to invite participants to a meeting. • Keyboard Chat: Private messages now show the sender's name within double chevrons. • Keyboard Chat activity indicator: The keyboard chat icon located in the attendee list will appear green to all participants when someone is typing. • Added Join By Meeting Number link on the Office and Public Pages. Clicking this link allows you to join a Web Conferencing meeting by entering a meeting session number. • Enhanced video conferencing: The Video Conferencing control by default, will not show through the viewport to the client viewer window. This alleviates confusion caused by the client seeing video through the viewer and through their own video con- ferencing control. • Added a snapshot function to video conferencing. To take a snapshot, click the camera icon near the top of the video conferencing window. • Added New Keystroke Function: Added Support for CTRL + a numeric key (0-9) com- binations in remote control. • Enhanced the Remote Support Reports: The reports will now display more descriptive information on how a call was answered, or why it was dropped. Added an option to hide calls that were unanswered. • New buttons at the bottom of the Test Browser page — TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE: Clicking this button opens a guide that lists the most common problems along with the solutions to the problems, — INSTALL ADD-ONS: Clicking this button opens a Web page that provides installs for the Inter-Tel Collaboration Client and other client add-ons. Installing the Inter- Tel Collaboration Client installs all necessary software such as Java and enables you to quickly join a meeting. In addition, as long as the Web Conferencing server is running, the client aids in helping you to pass the browser test. Page 4 Changes and New Features

  • 13. Introduction to Web Conferencing and Remote Support INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 MY OFFICE After you log in to the Web Conferencing/Remote Support Server, you are presented with your Office page.

  • 14. Introduction to Web Conferencing and Remote Support INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 Edit My Profile The Edit User page allows you to change account information such as password, name, e-mail address, and other user information. Required fields are indicated in red, as shown below. There are two options for E-mail Delivery: Conferencing Server (default) and User’s E-mail Client. Reasons to select the Conferencing Server option: • If the user has only Web-based mail. For example, if the user does not have Microsoft Outlook, EUDORA® or another e-mail program that will work with the Mailto function (Yahoo!®, Gmail, etc. will not work with the Mailto function). The Mailto function operates by opening a new message window when you click on an e-mail address link. The e-mail address appears in the “To” field. • If the user chooses to use the default meeting e-mail notification and prefers to allow the conferencing server to handle the e-mails. The User’s Email Client option allows a user to choose to use their own e-mail server to send out Web Conferencing meeting notifications. If the user wants to use their own mail server rather than the Conferencing server, they need to verify whether their current mail server can use the Mailto function. To verify whether a mail server can use Mailto: 1. Go to www.inter-tel.com. 2. At the bottom of the page, click the Contact Us link. 3. On the Web page that appears, click any e-mail link. If a mail server client appears, then User’s E-mail Client can be used. Otherwise, if a mail server client does not appear, then the Conferencing Server option is the only option that will work. NOTE: If your user ID profile was set up with User's Email Client selected instead of Confer- encing Server (the mail client that was included with Web Conferencing), you will have to manu- ally create and send meeting cancellation notices. If your account was set up to use the mail client that was included with Inter-Tel Web Conferencing Server, the Meeting Cancellation e- mail will automatically be sent. Page 10 Edit My Profile

  • 16. Introduction to Web Conferencing and Remote Support INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 PUBLIC AREA The Public Meetings page is where anyone who is given the Web address of your Web Confer- encing/Remote Support Server can access shared documents, recordings, or public meetings.

To change the current time zone or to have meetings appear with the time in your time zone, select your time zone from the drop-down menu. Other documents, recordings, and meetings that are not publicly shared can only be accessed after you are logged in or if a presenter grants access. The first time you click View Public Documents, the Web Conferencing/Remote Support Server runs a browser test to verify that you have everything you need to view the public docu- ments To access a Web page where you can launch the Document Manager and read an explanation on how to use it, click View Public Documents. To access and play public recordings, click View Public Recordings. Click Install Add-ons to find and install the following tools: Inter-Tel Collaboration Client, Inter-Tel Collabora- tion Player, Inter-Tel Toolbar Plug-ins and the Microsoft Outlook® Conferencing Form.

Page 12 Public Area
  • 17. Introduction to Web Conferencing and Remote Support INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 Inter-Tel Collaboration Client - Host and Attendees should install the Inter-Tel Collaboration Client for optimal performance. Installing the Collaboration Client pre-installs all required components for Web Conferencing and Remote Support sessions. Without this, Attendees will need to pass a Browser Test prior to joining a session. Microsoft Outlook® Conferencing Form - This is an Inter-Tel form that can be added to Microsoft Outlook. Once installed, this form allows the Host to create and schedule Web Con- ferencing meetings directly from the Microsoft Outlook Calendar.

The Application Sharing window shows all the appli- cations that the meeting host has running. When an attendee logs into the meeting, they will see a gray screen until the host selects which application(s) they would like to show in the application window on the client screen. Once you select an application, only that application will be shared. If another application (which is not shared) is covering the shared application, a wallpaper will cover where the non-shared application overlaps the shared application. To have an application appear in the Application shar- ing window, select the application so that a check mark appears, as shown in the example to the right. The application will then appear in the client’s appli- cation window. NOTE: If you have many applications running on your desktop, it is important to minimize any application that you do not intend to share in your application window. If you leave them up, they may appear in the foreground, masked out with Web Conferencing graphics, but also blocking the view of the application that you want to show. After everyone can see your application, you can allow particular individuals or all attendees to try out the application by giving him or her remote access. You can give one or more attendees remote access by highlighting their name in the attendee list and clicking the remote control button ( ) under the Attendee list. An eye icon will appear next to their name if they access your application remotely. Giving them remote access allows them to simultaneously control the application running on your desktop.

  • 45. Web Conferencing INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 Record Options Recording Space: A counter under the red record button keeps track of how much space is being used to store the recording. Under Record Options you will see the list of four Web Conferencing Controls that you can record: • Viewport • Voice Chat • Video Conferencing • KeyBoard chat You can select almost any combination of these of these controls to record except Voice Chat and Video Conferencing since they cannot run at the same time Record Offline: The host has an option of broadcasting what is being recorded to one or all participants or to record with no one seeing what is being recorded. Selecting this option allows only the host to see what is being recorded. Viewport Record Options: You can record the Viewport by selecting the Viewport option. When you choose to record the viewport, you have two different ways to record the viewport: • Snapshot: The host has an option to record in a snapshot mode where the host can take a snapshot of the desktop by clicking the red record button (just like a camera). This format takes snapshots of the entire viewport. Using snapshot, you can later view your recording forward or backward. • Continuous: When it is not in snapshot mode, it is running in a continuous mode where every action is recorded as it happens. Frame capture is only limited by the speed of the host’s PC. This format takes one initial complete view of the viewport and then records only the incremental changes that occur in the viewport. You can view this recording forward; however, since you’re capturing only the incremental changes, it won’t work as well viewing the continuous recording backwards. Record Options Page 41
  • 46. Web Conferencing INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 Voice Chat or Video Conferencing Recording Options: • Voice Chat: Records only the Voice Chat. • Video Conferencing: Records only the Video Conferencing. • Neither selected: Records other selected controls (Viewport and/or KeyBoard Chat) but not Voice Chat or Video Conferencing. KeyBoard Chat Recording Option: Keyboard Chat: Records only the Keyboard Chat. Storage Recording Options • Save on server: When recording a session, a user has the option to save the recording to a local file or on the Network Neighborhood or at the ConnectionPoint server. Saving to the ConnectionPoint Server is the default. When you clear this option, a window appears that allows you to browse to where you want to save your recording. • Storage: The host has the option of overwriting an existing saved file or appending to an existing saved file by selecting the appropriate option. If the “Overwrite” option is selected, the host will select the file from a pop-up list that is to be overwritten. If the append option is selected, the host will select a file from the pop-up list that is to have the recording appended. Display Thumbnail preview: This options allows you to see what you are recording. This option uses considerable CPU processing power, which may affect the efficiency of your other controls.

  • 47. Web Conferencing INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 Recording a Session Before you start recording, you should review the Record options. From the Options menu you can select to view the Record options menus. NOTE: You can change viewport settings before you start recording. Once the recording has begun, viewport settings cannot be changed. Before recording the session, the host will need to decide what will be recorded (Viewport, Voice, or Chat), how it will be recorded (Snapshot or Continuous), and where the recorded file will be stored (on the ConnectionPoint server or on the local host machine or on the Network Neighborhood). The Record options menu will allow you to choose where to save your session recording. If you decide to save your file to the local PC or on your Network Neighborhood, the Save on Server box must not be selected. Once the Save on Server option is clear, you will be able to select from Overwrite or Append. If you decide to save your recording on the server, select Save on Server. The Overwrite and Append options will appear dimmed. Record offline: When you choose this option, you do not show the other folks in the session what you are doing. Saving File to local PC or Network Neighborhood: To save the file to the local PC or the Network Neighborhood, the “Save on server” option must not be selected. Assigning File Name: When the “Save on server” option is not selected, clicking the record button will activate a pop-up window. The pop-up window prompts the host to assign a file name and file location to save the recording for future playback. The default file location is “Temp.” The following options are only available when a recording is stored locally: • Overwrite option: If the overwrite option was selected, a pop-up window prompts whether the existing file is to be replaced by the new recording. Clicking Yes brings the recording session to a “Record pending” mode to allow the host to set up the desktop for the recording session. • Append option: If the append option was selected in the record options, the recording session will be appended to the file that has been selected by the Host. Record Options Page 43
  • 48. Web Conferencing INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 When the host has completed the set up, the recording session begins by clicking the red record button. When the recording session is complete (the host clicked the stop button) the file is saved on the local PC and is available for replay on demand. There are no Hot keys for the Record and Playback control panel. Saving File on the ConnectionPoint Server To save to the ConnectionPoint Server, the “Save on server” option must be selected. All of the options described in the Save on Local PC section apply to the “Save on server” option, except that the “Overwrite” and “Append” options are not available. Clicking the red record button launches any controls that have been selected in the “Record Options” section of the Record and Playback control panel. The control panel is now in a “Record pending” mode. The host is required to give the record- ing to be saved a description. A “Limit access” option is used to indicate if the session to be recorded is private or public. The default is that the recording is public and the file will be saved as a public file on the server. This file will appear in the list of public recordings and can be viewed by anyone with access to the public area. If the user selects to make this recording private, the “Limit access” option must be selected. This is to indicate who will have access to view this recording. An input area is provided for the host to assign access to the recording by entering a semicolon delimited list of Email addresses or Web Conferencing IDs. Names that are entered in the “Limit access” area must exist in the database as registered participants. If the “Limit access” area is blank, then only the owner will be able to view the file. Once complete, the file is saved on the server. A description of the session being recorded is to be entered in the description input area. If no description is entered, the default is date and time (200110271000). In addition, the Connec- tionPoint automatically assigns a 13 character internal file identification number. When the “Description” and the “Limit access” decisions have been completed, then the recording can begin by clicking the red record button. The host clicks the stop button to com- plete the recording and the session is now archived and is available for playback. Page 44 Record Options
  • 49. Web Conferencing INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 Playback Options The host uses the “Playback Options” on the control panel to play any record/playback file to which they have access. The host has options to broadcast the recording to all participants, to any one participant or to view the recording privately. There is an “Interactive” option in play- back mode to allow the host to pause and insert something (i.e., a PowerPoint® slide or screen shot) into the viewport. There also is an option to play the recording over an over again in a repeat mode (loop continuous), or to just play it once. To playback a file, the host opens up “Options” on the menu of the control panel and selects “Playback.” During playback the host has full use of all functions. • Scroll forward/backward: During a playback session the scroll bar at the top of the control panel can be used to move backward or forward. • Index: An index counter (size is unlimited) is provided and is indicated by the pound sign (#). This indicates where you are in a recording or playback and can be used as a reference when you need to point to a particular frame in the recording. • Timer: Two timers are active during record and playback, one to keep track of elapsed time, and one that shows the actual length or total time of the recording. Total time of the recording is located under the red record button. Elapsed time is under the pause and the stop buttons. Both timers can go up to 99 minutes. • Preview: This option allows you to play the recording and not broadcast to anyone else in the meeting. • Broadcast: The host can show the playback to one participant in a private viewing or broadcast to all participants by selecting the broadcast option in the playback options. • Interactive: Launches the Viewport on the participant's desktop and presents the play- back in the Viewport. The host can then pause the playback and bring something else into the Viewport for discussion, the participant then sees what is now in the Viewport. When the discussion is over and the host clicks Play, the playback resumes playing in the Viewport. • Launch viewer: Launches the viewer (the same type of window a client would see when the host is broadcasting their viewport) on the participant's desktop for displaying the file being played back. Playback Options Page 45

OTHER BROWSER ISSUES Spam filters on e-mail clients can cause delivery problems with meeting invitations. If meeting invitees experience difficulty with receiving invitations, check the spam filter settings or use the filter tools to allow delivery from the domain being used. Spyware and adware that change your home page or other settings can also cause problems with Web Conferencing and Remote Support, including, but not limited to, slow response or incorrect page destinations. If you are experiencing browser problems that do not seem to be related to the tips previously mentioned in this section, run a utility that detects and removes spyware and adware.

  • 77. FAQ/Troubleshooting INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 REMOTE SUPPORT FAQ Q1. What operating systems does Remote Support server run on? A1. Remote Support 4.x has been tested on Windows 2000 Server (all versions), Windows 2003 (all versions except Small Business Server). To run on Windows 2003 Server you will need to install Sun Java or Microsoft Java Virtual Machine. Either one can be obtained from our site at: http://www.linktivity.com/home/getjava.asp. Q2. What browsers can Remote Support 4.x support? A2. Remote Support 4.x supports Internet Explorer version 5.5 and later, Firefox, and Mozilla. Q3. What version of Java does Web Conferencing/Remote Support 4.x support and how do I know what version of Java Virtual Machine I am running? A3. Web Conferencing/Remote Support support both Microsoft Java Virtual Machine Ver- sion 5.00.3805 and higher as well as Sun Java 1.4x. Details from Test Browser will display the version of Java Virtual Machine currently used by your Internet Browser. To determine the installed version of Microsoft Java Virtual Machine: • Open a DOS command window and from a Command Prompt, type jview. The first line of output should display the version number. To determine the installed version of Sun Java: • Open Internet Options in the Control Panel or from IE's menu Tools - Internet Options. On the Advanced page the version will be listed under Java (Sun). NOTE: Most of the time, there will be multiple versions of Sun Java installed on the machine. If you are having problems passing the browser test or connecting to the session, confirm all older versions of Sun Java have been removed via Add/Remove Programs. Windows will try to use all available versions of Java if present. Q4. Can I transfer Host control to the person I invited to interrupt my session with the cus- tomer? A4. Yes, you can give them Host Control and you may exit the session if you wish (or watch). However, when you relinquish Host Control to someone, your session ID is still in use and you are not available until that person ends the session. Q5. Based on the license, how do you determine how many Web Agents (CSRs) I can add in Remote Support? A5. Remote Support licenses are sold on a per-agent (CSR) basis. If a 5-agent license is pur- chased, Remote Support will support up to 10 concurrent connections or twice the number of agents purchased. There is no limit on how many CSRs can be added. Customers waiting in the Queue do not count towards the total concurrent connections on the ConnectionPoint. Remote Support FAQ Page 73
  • 78. FAQ/Troubleshooting INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 Q6. I want to invite someone to a session but they do not have e-mail. Can I put a link on my Web site that will direct a client to a specific CSR? A6. Yes. By editing the Web page and adding a section of HTML code, it is possible to cre- ate a link to a specific CSR. http://yourserver.com/interactivedemo/gethelp_example.asp. You can also direct the customer to this URL: http://yourserver.com/interactivedemo/gethelp.asp. Q7. My performance is a little slow. How can I tell what kind of connection I am making? A7. Remote Support 4.x now makes 4 different types of connections in an attempt to allow all users into a meeting. The first connection attempt is a socket connection, which will list as TCP on the Test Browser results. If a Socket connection is not available, it will attempt a Proxy connection using the manual Proxy setting in Internet Explorer. If that fails it will attempt an HTTP (tunneling) connection. If no Java detected, it will be an HTML connection in which the user can only view the remote desktop and chat. Performance will vary based on the type of connection made. In order from fastest to slowest is TCP, Proxy, HTTP and HTML. Q8. Why do the session controls load but no Security Certificates display and none of the buttons work, but I am in the meeting and Test Browser passes? A8 The Security Certificate and Java applets that are used need ActiveX controls and Java Scripting enabled. This symptom can be caused by banner advertisement blocking software, which is designed to block pop-up windows from opening. In some cases, you can correct this problem by removing the setting that is disabling the pop-ups. Some Internet Security or Anti-Virus Programs now come with the added feature to stop Java script or block ActiveX and this feature is turned on. Disable the feature that blocks the Java Scripts or ActiveX. Incorrect Date and Time settings on the server, host, or attendee's computer can also cause problems. Q9 Can I arrange a tutorial to learn more about using Remote Support 4.x? A9 Yes. Please contact your account manager to schedule a Remote Support tutorial. Page 74 Remote Support FAQ
  • 79. FAQ/Troubleshooting INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 WEB CONFERENCING FAQ Q1. Why doesn't my client connect and why does the Test Browser fail? A1. The client must be able to use the port that ConnectionPoint is using. This means that the port must be opened in the firewall or proxy server at the client connection. Details from “Test Browser” will help determine what is wrong. If the Connection to Server is not estab- lished, it could be because the port is blocked. Refer to the document “Client Troubleshooting Quick Start Guide” for more information. Q2. Why does the Test Browser not complete (i.e., hang)? A2. A possible cause is an older version of Java. See question 10 on page 76. Another pos- sibility is Internet explorer settings such as session cookies not being allowed, or more than one Java loading at the same time. Q3. How many colors can the Web Conferencing Viewport transmit? A3. For bandwidth conservation, the default Viewport setting is 65535 (16-bit) colors. The Viewport is also capable of transmitting 8-bit and 24-bit color. 8-bit color will transmit half as much data and 24-bit will transmit two times as much data as the default setting. Changes to the color setting are dynamic and can be made by right-clicking the screen resolution box in the bottom right corner of the Viewport and selecting one of the options under Color Settings. Q4. How can I run a PowerPoint slide show in a non-scrolling window and also have my meeting control window and applications visible? A4. In PowerPoint® select Slide Show - Set Up Show. In the Show Type panel, choose Browsed by an individual (window), and then click OK. The slide show will now run in a resizable window. This allows the host and attendees to run their Web Conferencing control windows on the side. Q5. Can I arrange a tutorial to learn more about using Web Conferencing 4? A5. Yes. Please contact your account manager to schedule a Web Conferencing tutorial. Q6. What browsers can Web Conferencing 4.x support? A6. Web Conferencing 4.x supports Internet Explorer version 5.5 and above, and Firefox, or Mozilla. Q7. What is the difference between a private and a public meeting? A7. Public meetings are open to everyone, both registered users and non-registered users. Private meetings are attended by invitation only. Non-registered users must join the meeting using the e-mail invitation or from the list of meetings on their Office page when logged in. Web Conferencing FAQ Page 75
  • 80. FAQ/Troubleshooting INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 Q8. How can I create a meeting? A8. To create meetings you have to register with the Web Conferencing 4.x server and logon using a valid Web Conferencing user account. Q9. What version of Java does Web Conferencing/Remote Support 4.x support and how do I know what version of Java Virtual Machine I am running? A9. Remote Support supports both Microsoft Java Virtual Machine Version 5.00.3805 and higher as well as Sun Java 1.4x. Details from Test Browser will display the version of Java Virtual Machine currently used by your Internet Browser. To determine the installed version of Microsoft Java Virtual Machine: Open a DOS command window and from a Command Prompt, type jview. The first line of output should display the version number. To determine the installed version of Sun Java: Open Internet Options in the Control Panel or from IE's menu Tools - Internet Options. On the Advanced page the version will be listed under Java (Sun). NOTE: Most of the time, there will be multiple versions of Sun Java installed on the machine. If you are having problems passing the browser test or connecting to the session, confirm all older versions of Sun Java have been removed via Add/Remove Programs. Windows will try to use all available versions of Java if present. Q10. I turned on Voice Chat but no one can hear me (the Host). A10. Test with Microsoft's Sound recorder, if microphone does not work with the sound recorder it will not work in Voice Chat. When Voice Chat is enabled the Volume Control master volume setting is turned up all the way. Use Windows Volume Control to adjust. The Web Conferencing Voice Chat can be used to adjust the Windows Wave sound volume. Make sure the microphone is enabled in the Win- dows and that Mute is not selected. Web Conferencing attempts to enable the microphone and mutes the microphone playback to the local speakers to avoid feedback. The Web Conferencing Voice Chat can be used to adjust the Windows microphone volume. Q11. My Voice Chat is distorted, what can I do to fix it? A11. Try turning off the Mic Gain (+20dB) in the advanced settings for the microphone. If this still does not work, try updating the sound drivers for your sound card. Q12. Why is my mouse movement slow and/or jerky in the Viewport? A12. A USB mouse can cause the mouse movements to be slow. Changing to a standard serial or PS/2 mouse should resolve the problem. If the mouse performance is both slow and jerky, change the Display: • Properties - Settings - Advanced - Performance or Troubleshooting setting to NONE in Hardware Acceleration. • Also, Microsoft Java offers faster mouse performance in the Viewport than Sun Java.

  • 81. FAQ/Troubleshooting INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 Q13. I occasionally see errors when using the co-browse feature. What can I do to resolve these? A13. It is essential to the functionality of co-browse for all of the latest updates to be applied for the operating systems and browser. These updates can be obtained from the Microsoft Win- dows Update Web site. Q14. Why do the session controls load but no Security Certificates display and none of the buttons work, but I am in the meeting and Test Browser passes? A14. The Security Certificate and Java applets that are used need ActiveX controls and Java Scripting enabled. This symptom can be caused by banner advertisement blocking software, which is designed to block pop-up windows from opening. In some cases, you can correct this problem by removing the setting that is disabling the pop-ups. Some Internet Security or Anti-Virus Programs now come with the added feature to stop Java- Script or block ActiveX and this feature is turned on. Disable the feature that blocks JavaScript or ActiveX. Incorrect Date and Time settings on the server, host, or attendee's computer can also cause problems. Q15. Can the chat window be resized? A15. Yes, the chat window can be resized when it is undocked. Right-click with the cursor over the chat text area and choose Undock from the pop-up menu. To re-dock the chat, close the chat window or right-click again and choose Dock. Web Conferencing FAQ Page 77
