Using the driver in the network
After installing the driver, you may use all configured line devices on the server as TAPI-lines. If you are using a server based CTI Software, you may install it now. To have the TAPI-devices available on all workstations, the TAPI-driver must be distributed in the network. There are the following options:

  1. estos UCServer
    The estos UCServer is a CTI/UCC server software which distributes the telephony information across the network using a graphical client or a multi-line TAPI driver. Workgroups, domains, Active Directory® and Terminal Server are supported.
  2. estos CallControlGateway
    The estos CallControlGateway for Lync/OCS is a gateway that connects the TAPI-lines with the Lync/OCS server. This enables the Lync/OCS client to use traditional telephone devices via Remote Call Control (RCC).
  3. Windows® Telephony Server
    The Windows® Telephony Server is a component of Windows® server operating systems since Windows® NT. You will need a domain. The service is limited to domain users.
