Software Products:

TOUCH-TONE COMMANDER: (Version 1.0/Date 7-18-01)

This is a Windows database administrative program. It is used with the CPS Dial products that use Touch-tone commands. It helps keep track of the products and locations and generates the proper Touch-tone action and configuration commands.

It has a "wizard" type of setup that will ask you the proper questions for the product that you are using (phone number, Access Code, etc.). This information is stored in a mnemonic descriptor ("Location").

To send a Command or Configuration string, simply select the "Location" that you desire and the product specific Command Window will be displayed. It contains the settings for that "Location". The user simply Selects the Command needed and clicks "Dial". The modem will dial and send the command to the product for you. You can still use any Touch-tone key pad, or a combination of each, to generate the control commands.

Here is a link to a customer site that has written software to control the IPC under Linux and other "termios"-type Unix systems. It allows the status to be checked and the power to be turned ON, OFF, or RECYCLED. It also deals with the watchdog... Thanks Sean.
