Status Display

cFos will display connection data either on a status window or on a variety of available skins (animated windows).
There are three different display types:

Animated Status Displays (Skins)

Connection
A click on the cFos Logo links you directly to our cFos Homepage. The small information symbol provides additional info about ISDN and DSL. Which COM port is currently in use is shown on the upper right. Symbols in the lower left corner refer to the connection status: Green arrow -> active connection. Blue dial -> dialup attempt. Telephone receiver with a downward arrow -> disconnect. Red bell -> analog ring on remote side.

Displayed next to these symbols is the budget number, followed by information on time spent online (cf. Budget Management ). Active connection time is given in hours:minutes, while transfer rates are represented as graphic bars.

Brief Explanation of LEDs Found along the Right Skin Frame:
Upper LED — GREEN: DTR high/low // YELLOW: X.31 (config. from remote) on/off // RED: incoming connection.
Lower LED — BLUE: COM port is in auto answer mode // YELLOW: incoming calls won't be accepted (off-hook).


Call Monitor
Caller ID is shown on the upper right. Just below, you can find the MSN that was used for connection. The orange-colored information button on the lower right is used to display call-monitor configuration data. This also provides a convenient way of checking the time a call was received. In addition, a number and symbol on the upper left track CAPI CIP values for the last connection.

(*) during connection, the number of active B channels is displayed here (" B3-1 "). When using cFos [PRO] Channel Bundling (CCB), it may instead be shown as " B3-2 ."

It's possible that digits start appearing in front of the "R". All these indicate is the number of data blocks whose reception cFos has yet to confirm to CAPI.
