IM server installers have been improved

We updated current installation packages of Bopup Communication Server by keeping the same version number 5.2.4. The updated installers improve installation of Management Console only (administrative mode) when the communication server is planned to be managed remotely.

Since new versions 5.x of the IM server creates and uses 'bcs50' SQL database by default then this could be an issue if the console is installed to manage an instance of the communication server that was previously upgraded from version 4.x or even from version 3.x. Those versions have 'bcs40' and 'bcs30' database names instead of 'bcs50' that made impossible installation of the remote console using setup files for versions 5.x

The updated installers add a new text field on the SQL Login setup dialog that allows to specify a proper database name. It's default value is 'bcs50' that can be changed in cases described above.

Bopup Messenger added option to search for contacts

New version 6.10 of Bopup Messenger client software added a useful feature that lets easily and quickly find users within Contact List. Now a small edit box is located above the Contact List in the main window and conversation dialogs (in extended mode only). By typing first letters the messenger rebuilds and shows only contacts whose first, last or account names starts with.


The similar function is also available in the Organize My Contacts wizard in the IM clients that also allows to find contacts by typing their first symbols prior adding them into Contact List.


We believe that this additions will be useful and important to companies that are having many employees and complex Organizational Units tree shown within the users' contacts.

Meet our new Live Chat

In our previous post we informed that the Live Chat feature on our websites and in the server console apps stopped working and we had to find another solution to provide instant technical support and reply to pre-sales inquiries for our clients and visitors. That did not take much time so meet an all-new Live Chat that is already available on http://www.bopup.com and other websites.


This Live Chat is provided by Zoho (the same vendor as we used before) and in comparison with the old text chat form it brings new great and useful functions. Now the Live Chat form supports file transfers so it is easy for us and for remote customer to exchange files and data. Another great apportunity is the desktop sharing feature. Now we can request a remote user to show his desktop window that lets much quicker and instant resolution in many cases.

We will implement and add the new text chat functionality to the new version of Bopup Communication Server software too.

Have questions on Bopup IM software? Just open http://www.bopup.com website and click Live Chat float button on the left of the screen.

Another annoying issue was that the messenger application asked to disconnect from IM server when Back key pressed on a phone. That was an inregular functionality. Now the messenger does not display the disconnect dialog and remains working. In order to close the application and unload it from device memory Quit menu item was added.
