A Complete PC Modem Pooling Server
Solution for Terminal Server and Metaframe
On-line Store

MPTS is a legacy Modem Pooling solution for Windows Terminal Server and Citrix Metaframe. MPTS gives "thin-clients" access to modem pools defined on the Terminal Server, saving both time and money by eliminating the need to reconfigure the communication application before each session.

Traditionally, when a "thin-client" uses a communication application on the server to make an outbound call, the user is faced with two challenges:

First, the user must know the physical location of an available modem.

Second, the user must reconfigure the application to use the right modem.

With MPTS, those worries are a thing of the past. MPTS allows the communication application to use a "virtual" modem (for TAPI aware apps) or a "virtual" COM port (for other non TAPI applications). When the modem or COM port is referenced, MPTS allocates the first available modem in the administrator’s defined modem pool.

For example, several users can simultaneously use COM1 (the "virtual" COM port) on the Terminal Server, and MPTS will connect each user’s application to a different available modem.

MPTS Can also be used in combination with our NetModem or NetDialOut software, to redirect users to remote modems hosted on another server.
