ISAPI (EasyLynqWeb) configuration


-This feature is only available on EASYLYNQ SERVER. Starting on version 1.20 of EASYLYNQ, Eurofluxo adds a new interface that enables to make database queries using an Internet browser. Installation of this interface should be performed by qualified personnel. Some changes have to be made manually in operating system because setup program just copies necessary ISAPI files to the hard disk. For implementation reasons, EasyLynqWeb works only with Microsoft WWW servers: PWS-Personal Web Server on Windows 95/98 and IIS-Internet Information Server on Windows NT 4, 2000, XP and 2003. Configuration procedures vary widely depending on operating system version and installed Service Pack. Thats why a detailed description of how to install and configure a WWW server was not brought into this manual. Following steps should be seen only as an orientation view. If you do not feel confortable following them, please refer to qualified staff.

Installation / configuration steps: Install and configure EasyLynq system as explained on the other chapters. Install EasyLynqWeb ISAPI from CD. Run ISAPICFG.EXE program. This file has been copied to the selected folder at the previous step. Configure several parameters such as TAXDBSrv server location, timeouts, etc. and save them. Install PWS (WIN 9x) or IIS (NT 4 / 2000 / XP / 2003). Youll probably need the Windows installation CD. Configure WWW server and add a virtual directory (for example EasyLynqWeb) with read and script permissions and pointing to the directory where you have installed the ISAPI.

Usage: Start the browser and enter the following address:

http://computer/easylynqweb/easylynq.dll
where computer designates the computer name on which we have installed the ISAPI. If you have configured EasyLynq.dll as a default document on the WWW server, you can omit it. Following window should appear:

You must enter valid ID and password to continue. See next chapter to learn how to run EasyLynq user interface and configure its operation.

GETTING DATA Data is accesible through SQL commands. A typical SQL command to get the extensions list looks like the following: select * from extension It is out of the scope of this manual to explain the SQL language. If you do not feel familiar to it, please refer to manuals and other documentation available in specialized bookstores. Several applications, such as Excel, Access, MSQuery and SQL Server, help you to make queries using a wizard utility, which avoids the manual entering of SQL commands.

SUPPORTED SQL LEVEL EasyLynq ODBC driver enables you to query the database and some tables and modify several (but not all) parameters in the configuration tables. It is not allowed to insert or delete any element. Supported SQL commands are: select update It is not allowed, in each SQL command, neither to specify more than on table nor aggregate columns of several tables. select command can contain several clauses for data searching, ordering and aggregation. Supported expressions are: where order by group by having, union and distinct are not supported. When using the where keyword, the following symbols are allowed: > < = >= <= AND OR ( )

IN, LIKE, NOT and arithmetic expressions (+, *, -, /) are not supported. EasyLSQL supports the aggregation keywords: sum, avg e count. These expressions can be used together with group by. Using them without specifying group by is equivalent to specify group by all. Only numeric data columns, such as call price and ring time, can use these expressions. EasyLSQL is case insensitive for keywords and for table and column names. Search parameters are case sensitive and must be accurately entered. In the following example, the group name is Marketing with capital M: select * from callrecord where (group = Marketing) The following date and time formats are permitted: dd/mm/yyyy, dd-mm-yyyy, yyyy/mm/dd, yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm, hh:mm:ss If specified, time must follow date using a space as a separator:
select * from callrecord where datetime > 1-11-2001 and datetime < 31-11-2001

- all call records between 00:00 of 1st November 2001 and 23:59:59 of 31st November 2001.
select * from callrecord where datetime > 3-11-2001 10:00 and datetime < 4-11-2001 9:59

- all call records between 10:00:00 of 3rd November 2001 and 09:59:59 of 4th November 2001.

SNMP trap notifications


-This feature is only available on EASYLYNQ SERVER. Starting on 15th May 2003, Eurofluxo introduces a new feature on EasyLynq Server that enables event notifications to Network Management Systems based on SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol). EasyLynq implements two basic event types: user intervention and auto-recoverable. The former is intended for that kind of occurrences that are not counter-balanced by forthcoming events and implies some sort of user action to terminate the abnormal condition. The later is oriented to temporary irregular states that may vanish without user intervention. Each event is assigned one of the following eight severity levels, ordered ascendently: 0 End of condition (reserved for auto-recoverable events) 1 Informational 2 Notice 3 Warning 4 Error 5 Critical 6 Alert 7 Emergency Refer to EasyLynq user module on-line help to get more detailed information about trap generator events, severity levels and source entities. By design reasons, EasyLynq only generates SNMPv2c trap notifications. Three files can be found on \UTILITY\SNMP folder of the EasyLynq installation CD for implementation and testing purposes: two MIBs (Management Information Base) and the TrapViewer utility. Be sure to install the Windows SNMP trap service and configure EasyLynq (Administration menu, Properties, SNMP property page) before running this application. The following table shows the Eurofluxo/EasyLynq tree as defined in the MIB files:
