Your IT Resource will tell you that it will depend on what types of security you have set up at your location.

Your company would need to have a VPN (Virtual Private Network) created so that the employees would connect to the office via that, and then log in to the server as if they were in the office.

A virtual private network (VPN) extends a private network across a public network, and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. Applications running on a computing device, e.g., a laptop, desktop, across a VPN may therefore benefit from the functionality, security, and management of the private network. Encryption is a part of Oneir’s VPN connection as you will be connecting your Windows computers through a telnet that uses SSH encryption.

To log in to Oneir, the employee would need to use Eric’s Telnet, the same program that you use on the computers in the office. At each employee’s site, a current copy of Telnet98 would have to be downloaded and installed on their home computers, and then create a session to connect to the server. The download is free, but it is a trial version and will only be free for 30 days. As the expiry of the trial period gets closer, they will be reminded with increased frequency they must purchase a licence to continue using the software. Licenses are $45 each.

When the connection is with a VPN, it will be the same internal IP Address of the server as used when connecting in the workplace.

I would recommend setting up Oneir’s WatchFolder so they can print a pdf file that can be previewed, search and selected pages printed.

Oneir Solutions Inc and the Vigilant Cloud Solution can print reports and any of your business forms on-screen to pdf’s. This means you can print a long report, search for specific items and only print the pages you desire. You can also display your business forms, such as quotes, confirmations, invoices, etc. as pdf’s and then print them on any Windows printer, even if you are not in the office. There is a slight delay of a few seconds while the pdf file is being created, but the wait is worth it.

Here are the steps to set up your computer so that you can display, print and save PDF files to your local computer.

Please have your IT Resource follow these steps as there is a bit of computer knowledge needed to get it set up.

Set Up for pdf Display and Printing:

1. On the C: drive of each computer, create a new folder name oneirpdf. This must be at the root of C:, not in any subdirectory, i.e. the full path must be C:\oneirpdf. Please note that this name is very specific for Linux communication so the directory name MUST be completely in lowercase with no spaces.

2. Save the attachment on this e-mail (named watchfolder.xex) to the oneirpdf directory. Also the watchfolder.xex.config

3. Rename the file to watchfolder.exe and watchfolder.exe.config respectively.

4. Double click on the watchfolder program to start the program running. A windows will briefly appear and then close. You are now ready to start using the display pdf feature.

5. Also create a Short Cut on your desk top so that the WatchFolder can be re-started easily in the future.

6. Please note that the watchfolder program must be running for the display pdf feature to work. You may wish to configure your computer to run watchfloder.exe every time you start up the computer. If not you will need to go to C:\oneirpdf and double click on watchfolder.exe each time you restart your computer in order for the feature to work.

If the program is not running, the pdf will be saved in the oneirpdf folder, however it will just be a string of numbers for the file name. So the only way to find out which one is the report you just did, would be to view the date and time the file was created. As you can imagine having the watchfolder program running is a vastly superior option.

Using the display PDF feature:

1. Ask for the report to print as normal. When you are asked to “Ready _____ printer. Press <space> to continue” Press <F9> instead of <space>.

2. Select “R. Display PDF file on screen”

3. The report will then compile and transfer to your local computer and launch Adobe Reader. Once the PDF is on screen, you may print it (or print selected pages and/or save it to wherever and with whatever name you wish on the hard drive the same way you would any other pdf.

You can optionally set up reportsas well as any of your business forms to print as pdf’s by going to the Otherr Options on the oneir home page and setting up printing to “R. Display PDF file on screen”.

Messages and their Resolution

Also, you must have a version of Adobe Reader, or similar program that may view and save pdf files.

If you get the following message:

…chances are our Watchfolder app does not know where to find the executable. You need to verify which reader you are using and where it has been saved to the hard drive. The last line in the WatchFolder.exe.config configuration file is the expected path for the pdf reader. Simply save file to your C:\ONEIRPDF folder and replace the info with the correct path and try it again.

Payroll has all 5 major Canadian banks, sometimes in multiple formats, plus one or two smaller bank formats.

In either case, Payroll or EFT we need a few things from you and your bank.

1. We need the bank’s documentation on the EFT and Direct Deposit required file formats. Most of the time these are exactly the same, but we have seen rare cases where they have separate formats, so we need to make sure. WE will review the file layout documents to ensure that our layout is the same.

2. All company banking information (Account #, Branch/Transit, any business or access # etc.) for the account that the payments come out of needs to be hardcoded in to the programs so that the files can be created. So we need that information provided before we can activate the direct deposit/eft for your company. Download full documentation here

Integrated Bank Credit & Debit Card Processing and Authorization: Helping Businesses Handle Virtual Sales and Collections

No matter what business you hail from, the advent of technology into the marketplace has completely reinvented how we do business.

With competition becoming increasingly fierce, it’s imperative that businesses remain on the forefront of their customer’s minds, and that includes making things as convenient as possible through virtual payment processing.

Rare is the customer who prefers to pay with cash. And when shopping online, that’s a certified impossible feat.

And while credit cards come with their own set of benefits (such as points collection), and bank cards make it easy for consumers to avoid having to make hourly trips to the local ATM, it’s the online purchasing power that is dictating how easy it is for buyers to shop – and businesses to collect payments. *** Note that for businesses, their credit card has become their bank “Line of Credit” ***.

That’s where integrated bank credit and debit card processing and authorization software comes into play.

Imagine being able to process payments on the fly, no matter where you are. That’s the power of integrated bank credit and debit card processing.

Fully integrated card authorization software can warp-speed your clients’ payments, spike productivity, and boost cash flow, all without the need to depend on in-person cash exchanging at the till. These same benefits even kick in while you are taking orders over the phone or through your eCommerce Website over the Internet.

It’s a win-win situation for both sides of the transaction.

A simple bank and credit card authorization software can literally revolutionize how businesses handle sales and payment transactions. With just about everyone and their mother using plastic to purchase via the online world, it only makes sense to capitalize on this fact and make it easy for people to complete their payment virtually. Not only is it more convenient for them, but it’s also lucrative to your business.

It’s fast, it’s easy, and it’s secure. You can’t beat that.

In a nutshell, let’s run down the benefits of integrated bank and credit card processing and authorization software:

  • Receive final payments for products the second they’re shipped
  • Take deposits to secure a confirmed order
  • Register sales through your mobile device right from your customer’s office
  • Immediate sales confirmation emails sent after the transaction is complete
  • Order is immediately forwarded for warehouse picking, packing and shipping
  • Input sales directly to your database
  • Print customer invoices on the spot
  • Charge new sales to the previously recorded credit card accounts

At the end of the day, convenience translates into profits. Your bottom line can be significantly improved with the implementation of bank and credit card authorization software. Get in touch with Oneir Solutions to learn more!
