Manually Installing GVP on Linux

These instructions install each GVP module separately, one per tab.

Procedure: Installing the Media Control Platform (Linux)

Install the Media Control Platform component to enable Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) applications that use Voice Extensible Markup Language (VoiceXML) to access the Media Control Platform media services.

Before you start the Media Control Platform and Call Control Platform Application objects, you must start the Apache Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Server and (if you use the Squid) the Squid caching proxy.

  1. Verify that:
  2. At the Linux host, log in as root, and then enter su.
  3. Navigate to the directory that contains the Media Control Platform installation package.
  4. Enter chmod a+x install.sh.
  5. Run the ./install.sh command.
    The installation script is initiated.
  6. At the prompt, enter the hostname of the Media Control Platform server. For example:
    Please enter the host name or press enter for "<local_host>"
    => <local_host>.
  7. At the prompt, enter the information that is required for the Configuration Server for example:
    Configuration Server hostname 
    =><config_serv>
    Network port =>2020
    User name =>default
    Password =>password
  8. At the prompt, enter the information, if required, for the Client Side Port Definitions for example:
    Do you want to use Client Side Port option (y/n)?y
    Client Side Port port =>1234
    Client Side IP Address (optional), the following values can be used
    10.0.0.222
    10.0.0.254
    =>10.0.0.222
  9. At the prompt, choose the application that you want to install. For example:
    1 : MCP-Host
    2 : MCP_8.5.000.09

    • Alaw (Europe)
  11. Select one of three options for HTTP Proxy mode:
    • use HTTP proxy "localhost"
    • disable HTTP proxy
    • specify HTTP proxy
  12. If you selected specify HTTP proxy in the previous step:
    • Enter the HTTP proxy host.
    • Press Enter to confirm 3128 as the HTTP proxy port or enter a new one.
  13. After the following output is displayed, enter y or n at the prompt:
    If you are using GVP VoiceXML applications on this server, you need to enable VoiceXML applications.
     
    If you are using the Genesys Media Server with Play Application treatments (also VoiceXML), 
    e.g., from routing strategies, then you need to purchase GVP ports and enable VoiceXML applications.
     
    Otherwise, you do not need to enable VoiceXML applications.
     
    Do you wish to enable VoiceXML applications (y/n)? =>y
  14. At the Next prompt, enter the path to the directory in which the application files will reside for example:
    Press ENTER to confirm /<Install_Dir>/gvp81/MCP_8.5.000.xx as the destination directory 
    or enter a new one => /opt/genesys/gvp/VP_Media_Control_Platform_8.5.000.xx

Installing the PSTN Connector is similar to installing other GVP 8.x components. You can accomplish it with the deployment option in Genesys Administrator or by executing the setup.exe on the PSTN Connector host.

JCT-specific Configuration

For JCT boards, the PSTN Connector parameter MediaVoxResourceBoard must be configured with route number information for the different board used for CSP. Please refer to parameter help for more details.

Configuring Dialogic

  • Use Dialogic Service update 229

Path to these services updates: \\inccisss003\PlatformTeam\VCS\Dialogic\SystemReleases\SR 6.0\ServiceUpdate229

For Dialogic configuration for different TDM protocols, please refer to this document.

Specific Configuration for Windows 2008

The complete path to the Dialogic package for Windows 2008 Server is:
\\inccisss0003\genesys\PlatformTeam\VCS\Dialogic\SystemReleases\SR 6.0\ServiceUpdate239\win2008\vista_red.zip

You must disable Physical Address Extension (PAE) on Windows 2008; otherwise Dialogic may not function properly. Please refer to this Dialogic web page for details.

To disable PAE, run these commands from the command line:

C:\bcdedit /set nx OptOut
C:\bcdedit /set pae ForceDisable

Then restart the server.

Interworking with SIP-Server

To enable the PSTN Connector to interwork with SIP-Server, configure the PSTN Connector as a Trunk DN with the following parameters:

[TServer]contact=<PSTNIPAddr:port>
[TServer]prefix=<xyz>
[TServer]replace-prefix= (Empty String)

This configuration specifies that the outbound call lands on the same PSTN Connector instance from where the inbound call is received.

Notes:

  • The trunk DN, [TServer]contact=<same as PSTN Connector contact>, must exist before PSTN Connector starts.
  • In order to find the trunk DN, the SIP-Server application must be attached to the PSTNC application in the connections tab.
  • The change in SIP-Server application/Switch is not considered at run time.
  • Once the trunk DN is deleted, the prefix value is set to empty value and is not modified until the restart of PSTNC.
  • Though SIP-Server application is attached in the connections tab, the options UserAgentAddr and UserAgentPort should be configured with SIP Server IP address and listening SIP port.

Execute this procedure: Installing and Configuring the PSTN Connector.
