PRB: Brooktrout group device error in Server Monitor when using 2 Brooktrout devices



ID: ZTN1604

This Zetafax technical note applies to:

  • Zetafax version 2007 and later


When changing the online/offline status of a device in the Zetafax Server Monitor, an error occurs.  This happens only when there is more than one Brooktrout device group present, and occurs when you try to change the status of the device in the second group.


The Zetafax Server Monitor does not cater for the second board to be taken online/offline whilst the Zetafax server is running.


Use the Zetafax configuration program to remove the device from the server temporarily and then restart the Zetafax server. You will not lose any settings as these are stored within the configuration file. When you need to bring the device back online, add it again and restart the Zetafax server.


This has been identified by Equisys as a problem with the software versions given above.
