PDW Support / Filter Question
« on: 18 Jan 2018, 01:52:19 »
I have a question on how filters work in PDW.  What I think I am seeing is that when the first filter in the list has it's criteria met, it stops going down the list of filters.

Here is what I am trying to do.  I have a list of filters that all have the same CAP code.  What I want to do is depending on the text in the filter play a different .wav file.  So if I have a filter with a CAP code of 0000357 and no text, but that filter runs a command and plays a sound, any filter below that in the list will not be run since the first in the list was triggered.

I think I can get things to work how I want but it looks like I would not use the CAP code, but just the text filter. 

Any help or suggestions from folks that have used filters in this way will be appreciated.


PDW Support / Filter Command File
« on: 14 Jan 2018, 20:41:55 »
I am trying to get PDW to launch a PHP script from the Command File in the Filter.  I am running a WAMP on the machine and all I want to pass is the message text using %7. 

What I have in for the command file c:\path\to\command\php.exe inhouse.php and in the Arguments %7.

I have a batch file that runs the PHP file file and I can pass the simulated message text in the batch file and everything works fine.  I just can't seem to get PDW to launch the PHP file.  I command prompt windows does appear briefly, and disappears, but the PHP script is not being launched.  If it was, the script would write to a log file to confirm that it ran.

Has anyone had any luck launching executables and passing arguments?

Thanks in advance.

PDW Support / POCSAG Simulator
« on: 01 Jan 2018, 17:42:54 »

I'm new to the forum and just started using PDW to build an in station alerting system for a fire department.  PDW is up and running fine and receiving all of the pages from the dispatch center.  I now need to work on some PHP scripts that will receive the filtered pages from PDW and process them for displays and some other functions.

Does anyone know of a POCSAG simulator that I could use to generate a POCSAG page on a Windows 7 machine.  Rene suggested this but that just throws error on Windows 7.  I do not have an XP machine to use.

If anyone knows of such a utility or method to generate test POCSAG messages, I would greatly appreciate it.
