To use the estos UCServer with a terminal server or Citrix® Metaframe, first install the server as described in Installation.
In contrast to TapiServer 2.x, with estos UCServer no TAPI drivers are required for estos ProCall in Terminal Server environments.
You only have to install the multi-line TAPI driver if other applications use TAPI.
If you have installed a further application which uses TAPI please observe the following instructions:
estos UCServer is installed on the Terminal Server
If the estos UCServer is installed on the terminal server, no remote TAPI driver is used. The lines which are made available to the telephone system by the TAPI driver can be viewed and used by all users. The estos UCServer has the task to allocate lines to the users.
estos UCServer is not installed on the Terminal Server.
If the estos UCServer is installed on another server, then the Multiline TAPI driver is installed on the terminal server. In the Computer configuration all lines are assigned to the Multiline TAPI driver which are needed by the terminal server users. These lines are then visible for all users and the right line is always used for the registered user.

Every user can use the terminal server from any workstation:
