How do I activate on-screen messages displayed through self-check devices connected via SIP?
The AF Message reports on any success/failure.
If Voyager is not sending on-screen messages to self-check devices in the 'AF' field, the selfchk.cfg file is most likely missing the [Screen Messages] stanza. To fix this, follow these steps:
- On your Voyager server, open /m1/voyager/xxxdb/ini/selfchk.cfg, where 'xxxdb' is your database directory.
- Check to see if this file contains a stanza with the heading '[Screen Messages].'
- If it does not contain this stanza, copy the text below into the file. You may also find this stanza in the /m1/voyager/xxxdb/ini/selfchk.cfg.tml file.
- Edit any messages you wish to customize. Save the file.
- Restart any self check machines that have active connections to Voyager. When you open a new SIP connection, you should see on-screen messages transmitted in the 'AF' field.
