There are no restrictions for this release. This release contains the following new features:

Corrections and Modifications

This release includes the following correction:


Network T-Server for GenSpec now populates the application field of the invokeApp request to the SCP as follows:

  1. T-Server searches in RequestApplyTreatment for an extension key-value pair with key APP_ID. If that key-value pair is absent, it returns EventError. Otherwise, it uses the value of this extension to complete Step 2.
  2. T-Server searches in RequestApplyTreatment for an extension whose key equals the value obtained in Step 1. If such a key-value pair exists, the server uses it to populate the application field. Otherwise, it uses the value obtained in Step 1 to populate the application field.

This behavior ensures backward compatibility with all earlier versions of the Network T-Server for GenSpec. (ER# 293135319)

Known Issues and Recommendations

This section provides the latest information on known issues and recommendations associated with this product.


In release 7.6, the Commonlib option common\rebind-delay affects the operation of Network T-Servers that use the gli-reconnect-delay option to control server socket. The common\rebind-delay option overrides the gli-reconnect-delay option and ignores settings for this option.

Genesys recommends the following:

Note: Disabling this option may cause problems in cases of multiport usage. Network T-Server will exit if at least one port has not been opened (due to misconfiguration, or a quick restart).

Found In: 7.6.000.07 Fixed In: 

The Network Attended Transfer and Conference (NAT/C) feature supports a maximum of three parties on a call. After an initial TNetworkConsult request has been made and a third call participant is present, subsequent TNetworkConsult requests will result in EventError messages. After the number of call participants drops back to two parties (due to transfer or disconnection of one party from the conference), subsequent TNetworkConsult requests are again valid. (ER# 77020182)

Found In: 7.2.002.00 Fixed In: 

Network T-Servers do not support warm or hot standby.  Instead, they use a load sharing redundancy schema.  See the Framework 8.1 Network T-Server Deployment Guide for your T-Server for more information.

Found In: 7.0.000.06 Fixed In: 

Running the Network T-Server for GenSpec on the Solaris operating system requires the installation of certain patches to the C++ runtime libraries. Install the specific patches for the C++ runtime as shown below:
