COCOT software titles

11 posts in this topic

Hey all,

I’m looking to create a listing of management/access/interface software titles/program names associated with specific COCOT brands/models; something that might serve as a general reference, including third party as well as proprietary software.

For example, the oft cited (but long dead link to):

Protel Expressnet: xv150.exe and xnetv151.exe

Or:

Ernest Telelink (filename(s)? board models?)

Elcotel PNM+ (Elcotel Series 5 and Olympian 5501)

Intellicall INET

Or:

RouteExpert (does not communicate directly with phone; manages manufacturer software output)

I’m not looking for actual links to the software, just a good list people can refer to.

Thanks in advance for any help you might offer

Ever get any of these programs? I'm looking for PNM+ myself.

Protel made some other software called Pronet I think. It does pretty much the same thing as Expressnet, but is Windows based.

 

Anywho, here's a copy of Expressnet if you want it. It's pretty cranky software, you'll probably want a copy of VMWare or something to run it on.

Millennium Manager is Nortel's incarnation of payphone management software. Being made by Nortel, it doesn't actually run on anything normal or cheap, but instead an HP/Tandem computer. There's definitely people who had different ideas about this, though. I've heard stories of at least one company reverse engineering the protocol and writing their own software. If anybody knows more about this, please let me know. I've got a Millennium around here in desperate need of a config file :) .

 

EDIT: Half of one of my sentences was stuck in an unrelated one. That's embarassing.

I have an Ernest COCOT, model ETX/D3. It uses Telelink software over a 1200 baud modem link to program the phone (I use an old modem locked to 1200 baud to program over an Asterisk PBX). The software I have is v2.61 it works on Ernest phones running ETX 40.00 firmware (possibly others). I also have instructions for adding a cheap LCD display to the phone that allows keypad programming of all parameters.

 

The Ernest is nice in that it is completely line-powered. The coin relay works reliably even at lower line voltages supplied by some ATAs. I run mine on Asterisk from a Linksys PAP2-NA.

 

Best,

 

Don

I put the .zip file containing the Ernest COCOT manual, Telelink software, and LCD hack instructions here:

There is also a .pdf with pictures of the phone with the LCD hack installed, as well as suggested programming parameters.

 

Best,

 

Don
