  2. Chronicall Server Address:
    Enter the Chronicall Server IP Address.
  3. Recording Storage Location: Configure where the recordings will be stored. The default will be the recording Library directory. You will also be able to manage your retention policies here.

Configuration of SFTP for Windows (Chronicall Version 3.10.2d and newer)

As of Chronicall release 3.10.2d, the Chronicall Recording Library now has a built in SFTP for Windows. This removes the need for the use of the Freeftpd software.

Note: *Before configuring the SFTP, ensure that the Chronicall Recording Library (version 3.10.2d or later) has been installed.
To configure the SFTP follow these steps:

  1. Open Chronicall once you have installed Recording Library
  2. Go to System Settings -> Recording Libraries
  3. Click on the ellipses (...) next to "Recording Libraries".
    a. Select the desired Recording Library
    b. Select "Edit.
  4. Select the ellipses to the right of "Recording Library FTP Server Configuration"
  5. Check the "Enable Recording Library FTP Server" box.
    a. Enter a desired username and password for the SFTP to use
    Note: Make note of the selected username and password as they will be used further on.
  6. Restart the Recording Library service.

Test SFTP and Configure the VM Pro

From the Linux or Windows terminal of the Voicemail Pro, you can test to ensure that it can connect to the SFTP by using a command as seen in the example below:

SFTP [email protected]

Note: Replace "Administrator" and the IP with the username created in step 5a and the IP address of the Recording Library machine.

If you receive an error saying the key is invalid, navigate to the known_hosts file at the location specified in the error and remove any lines with the ip of the Recording Library server. Then, save the file, then try the SFTP command again.


Voicemail Pro SFTP Configuration

  1. Open the Voicemail Pro Client and login
  2. Click the "Administration" option at the top of the screen.
    a. Select "Preferences"
    b. Select "General"
  3. Go to the voicemail recording tab and enter the following settings
    a. FTP Username: Username configured in step 5a
    b. FTP Password:
    Password configured in step 5a
    c. Remote FTP Location: /
    d. Remote FTP Host: IP Address of the Recording Library server.
    See example below
  1. Click "Test Connection"
    If the connection is successful then you should be good to go. If the connection is not successful review the above steps.

If you received a message saying the connection was successful in step 4 but you are still not seeing recordings, access the "Limbo" folder of the Recording Library. Try restarting the VMPro.

Note: *It is possible to keep the Monitored directory pointed to the Live folder, as the / on the Remote FTP Location tells VMPRO to put the recordings into Limbo.

You will need to schedule an after-hours reboot for VMPRO to apply the changes.


Changing the Language

Before Changing the Language

When changing the language, the list of Chronicall Standard Reports will not switch to the new language. Rather, the existing English reports will stay, and the new language counterparts will be added to the list. In other words, your list of reports will contain each report in English and a duplicate report in the selected new language.

If you don't want the English version of the reports to remain, you can delete all existing English reports before doing the language download. Simply select all reports in Standard Reports, right click, and select "Delete."

To Change the Language

  1. Upon logging into Chronicall, select "Admin (System)" from the options along the top of the page
  2. Select "Download Translation"
  3. Select your desired language
  4. Hit "OK"

Once the download is complete, the Standard Reports will now contain all standard reports and all future Realtime wallboards from this point on will be in the selected language.

A Note on the Realtime Wallboards

If any Realtime wallboards have been created prior to the download of the new language, the previously created wallboards will remain in English. However, any wallboards created after the language download has been performed will be presented with the downloaded language.
