Getting the AG software to work under Windows 7

There is a known issue with running the integrated "Multicast Beacon" using Windows 7, which causes the application to crash with a python error message when connecting to a Virtual Venue.

To fix this issue, start up the Venue Client but do not connect to a Venue. Then simply turn off the Multicast Beacon via Tools -> Preferences -> Network and disable the "Run integrated multicast beacon client" setting.

Once this setting is saved, the rest of the Access Grid Toolkit should perform as expected.

This has been tested using AGTK 3.2beta and the 3.2 release.

How to run an AG3 Bridge

|

In AccessGrid 3, bridges are available to any user in any Venue. This is achieved by registration of the Bridges with a Registry, which clients can query to discover Bridges. As of AG3.0, only one such Registry exists; support for multiple separate Registries will come in a future release. This article briefly describes how to run a bridge in AG3.

How to use Jabber to Connect to AG 3.x Venue Text Chat

|

The AG 3.x Venue Client uses the jabber protocol for text chat. This creates the opportunity to join the text chat for a given venue using a jabber client, if you are in a situation where you cannot run a Venue Client.

Download, Installation, and Configuration

A Jabber client can be downloaded at http://www.jabber.org. Follow the link on the left-hand side of that page to "clients;" the Psi client is recommended and used by many in the AG community.

Download and install the PSI client on your machine. When you get to the Choose Components screen, you may choose to disable the Automatic startup if you would not prefer to have Psi start up automatically whenever you log in to your computer.

The first time you launch Psi, you will see a window titled Open Profile. Follow these steps:


  1. Select the "Profiles" button at the bottom of the window. The next window that opens is the Manage Profiles window.

How to Configure the ClearOne XAP800 for an Access Grid Node

|

This document, by Mike Miller of NCSA, was originally published on the AG Documentation Project. It is intended to provide step-by-step instructions for the initial configuration of your ClearOne XAP800 echo cancellation device for use in an Access Grid (AG) node. Throughout this document, it is assumed that you are using the ClearOne XAP800. However, savvy readers will most likely be able to set up other EC devices using these instructions as a general guide.

Web-based AG Tutorials, including Series on Troubleshooting

The Access Grid Training Project provides a number of web-based tutorials about the AG, including a series on troubleshooting (networking, audio, and video). Tutorials are provided for both novice and intermediate users.

The troubleshooting series may be of particular interest to new users, or those who are experiencing problems with the quality of the audio and video (which may, in turn, be related to undiagnosed networking issues).

To access the tutorials, please visit the Access Grid Tutorials page. Free registration is required. The troubleshooting tutorials can be found in the section titled "Tutorials on General AG Topics, Including the Series on Troubleshooting."
