MCS-7835 Cannot find dongle error - with Solution

I have just encountered one small issue which I'd thought I'd share proactively:<br><br>Situation:<br>Installing Active Voice on a Cisco MCS-7835 (Originally slated as a uOne machine)<br>Unity cannot find the dongle and therefore will not install.<br><br>Solution:<br>The MCS-7835 machine by default does NOT assign an IRQ to LPT1, only the I/O of 378. The dongle does not seem to like this. By manually forcing an IRQ (Usually 7) to this port, the dongle is detected.<br><br>I would assume, that this would be the case with most Compaq Proliant boxes as well, since the MCS-7835 is a Compaq 1850R server.<br><br>Cheers!<br>John.<br><br><br><br>

Re: MCS-7835 Cannot find dongle error - with Solution

I've also had a similar issue.
Another solution is to update the bios on the MCS-7835 with the latest from compaq. Once done it recognizes the dongle.
