K95 Dialer - The Location Definitions Notebook

Please refer to Using C-Kermit, Chapter 5, for a thorough explanation of Dialing locations and procedures.

The General Page

The current location is shown highlighted in the Location box. Change locations by using the dropdown list (click on the arrow, then click on the desired location). This is equivalent to using the Current option in the Locations menu.

To remove an entry . . .
Highlight the entry you want to remove in the Location field, then click on Remove.

To add a new entry . . .
Click Add. A box pops up in which you enter the name for the new entry:
Enter the name, click on OK, then fill in the information on the various notebook pages.

On the remainder of the General page, enter the information for the location you are dialing from: country code, area code, and so on, and specify the dialing method (tone or pulse), as shown in the screen shot above:

Country code
The numeric country code of the country you are dialing from, for example 1 for the USA and Canada (etc). These are listed in Table VIII-1 of Using C-Kermit.

Area code
The area or city code, if any, of the place you are dialing from within your country, for example 212 for Manhattan, New York City.

Prefix
Any prefix which must always be used when dialing from this location (normally left blank, but might be used for call-waiting override).

Suffix
Any suffix which must always be used when dialing from this location (normally left blank).

Maximum redials
The maximum number of times to automatically redial the number if it is busy. NOTE: Automatic redialing is prohibited by law in some countries, and the maximum number of redials might be restricted in others. Be careful not to violate local laws.

Redial interval
How many seconds to wait between automatic redial attempts. The minimum interval between automatic redial attempts might be specified by local law.

Timeout
The number of seconds to wait for a call to be answered before declaring the call to be a failure.

Dialing method
Check Tone or Pulse, as appropriate. If you don't know, check Pulse.

Ignore Dial Tone
Check this box if your phone does not produce a dialtone recognized by your modem.


The Local Calls Page

Enter any Prefix or Suffix needed for local dialing. Normally, no prefix or suffix is needed, in which case you should leave these boxes blank.

The Area Codes box is for listing all the area codes to which calls from this location are local (meaning that the long-distance prefix is not used), but which must be dialed. In the North American dialing region, this is where you handle "ten digit dialing". Do not include your own area code in this list unless you must dial it (as is the case, for example, in the US state of Maryland). The format for this box is zero, one, or more area codes separated by spaces (not commas). An area code may also include an "exchange" in cases where it makes a difference.
