Request for Protel ExpressNet Software

19 posts in this topic

Hey there Forum.

I recently aquired a payphone from a run down gas station and have poked the program button a few times. However, I still can't make free calls even though I've programmed the board to do so.

This is a Protel board model xk7000.

I can program the free number ok, but for any other call, like 10 digit, 7 digit, it doesn't seem to do anything.

I think I may need the ExpressNet software to " really " re-program this thing.

I would appreciate any links to download ExpressNet or maybe a file transfer could be arranged.

It seems like Google is hiding a lot about ExpressNet.

Since no body knows a damn thing about ExpressNet,  I did my own research.

 

This is for the protel xk7000 board

If you experience similar problems with programming the phone to make free calls and it still asks for money, do the following!:

1.) Enter the Program Mode

 

2.) Dial 00 and then the number of the line the phone is hooked up to.

 

3.) You should hear a "BEEP", the phone has been defaulted. Sort of like a " clean slate"

Go back and re-program the types of calls you want to be free and it should work

Your welcome!

Good info! I couldn't find any info/sources for the ExpressNet software; however, I do know someone with a Protel phone who will probably find your solution useful!

Well hot damn! That's a start.

My info was received from Payphone.com

You have to call the 1-800 number to get the " Juicy " information. 

Pretty neat.

Interesting! We came across payphone.com when sourcing a weather-resistant call box for a back entrance. Good to know they've got some hands-on know how with their equipment.

I might have a copy of Expressnet lying around. I'm not near the computer with it at the moment, but I might be able to find it later.

Script Kiddie,

 

If you still need your phone programmed let me know, I can do that for you.

Sweet! Thanks for your reply. Is there any way that I could snag a copy? I've been interested in trying to reverse engineer the commands it sends over the modem to try to make an open source implementation of some of the simple config options.

The issue is, the PNM software will only install via the original 3.5 floppies  (4 of them). If you make a copy of PNM the install will not work (copy protection). I can send you a copy of the software if you want to find a way around the copy protection. The other option would be to send me a blank hard drive (10gig to 40gig Plus shipping costs) and I can install Windows 98 plus the PNM software.

Thanks for your reply. If it's not too much of a hassle, any way you could send a virtual machine image of it installed on Win98? I have some web space if you need a place to upload to. Thanks!

If not, I can send a hard disk and turn it into a VM.

I'll let you know when I've got it uploaded. The more mirrors, the lower the risk of the software being lost.
