Updated: Feb 02, 2006




Telephony Call Dispatcher (TCD) is the Cisco WebAttendant Server component. It resides on a Cisco CallManager server, and uses the Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) interface for call control. The CTI profile, like all other user profiles, is stored in DC Directory. Therefore, TCD needs to read some parameters from DC Directory. This document will discuss how to check the flag settings for DC Directory.

  • Cisco CallManager Administration

  • Windows 2000 Terminal Services

Hardware and Software Versions
