How-To to use the intelli-CAT Test Harness
intelli-CAT is a test harness with which you can monitor the behaviour and performance of intelli-CTi on your workstation and with your telephone system.
Note – intelli-CAT results are best used as a supplement to the logging QGate enable within intelli-CTi. This can be enabled during configuration on the Telephony Events tab by ticking the Enable Telephone Logging checkbox and specifying a file name and path for the log you wish to create. This logging is of the TAPI telephone system itself. In other words, it is the data stream as it is before it passes through QGate’s intelli-CTi API.

- Navigate to C:Program FilesQGate Softwareintelli-CTi on your workstation and double-click intelliTest. You will see the screen below, the intelli-CAT application.You do not need to be running intelli-CTi beforehand because you can start it from within intelli-CAT.
