Critical Mastercom Update:
    - CSIO has been working to transition brokerages to web services for connectivity with CSIOnet, which will replace the Juniper VPN which is no longer supported. The deadline for brokerages to migrate to web services is Tuesday October 4th, after which Juniper will be shut down. Brokers continuing to use Juniper after this date will be unable to connect to CSIOnet.
In order to check which version of Mastercom you are running, please go to the computer that does EDI download, click the Start button on the desktop, All Programs, you will see either Broker EDI  or Mastercom Broker EDI. On the drop down options - choose Settings Main. Your version will read at the top of this screen. If it shows a version that starts with 8, you are still using the Juniper connection and will need to update to the version 9 using Web Services. Please forward this link below to your brokerages IT support.

    - The Bulk eDOCs download options will be removed from Power Broker in the next software release. Bulk download was used by a number of Insurance Companies, before eDOCs were sent as XML transactions through CSIOnet. By 2012 CSIONet eDOCs was in full swing, and had basically replaced the bulk eDOCs download. We have left the bulk download in the system for 6 more years, but if any brokerage is still using the bulk method, they should switch to CSIONet eDOCs.

The 5 options shown on the EDI menu right below Reports & Functions below, have been removed.
