Enter a fully qualified domain name or an IP address and then press the Call key. You can put a comment before the address, but in this case you should enclose the address between < and >. If not specified, the address uses the standard PicoPhone port, 11676. A port can be specified after the address, using a colon as a separator. The syntax can be therefore:

address, or
address:port, or
name <address>, or
name <address:port>

When the second two forms are used, and also the first two forms, when the address is a DNS name and not an IP address, the address will be saved and it will be available from the drop down box for the next time.

If the Picoserver is used, everything is much simpler, because it is sufficient to enter the identity of the user to be called.

You can use the Disc button to abort a proceeding call setup, to disconnect from one or more parties, or from everyone.
The Msg button sends a short message to an unconnected party. The message will be written to the log file. If the receiving party has logging disabled, messages cannot be sent to that party.
The Off button disables reception of calls and allows to specify a message to leave for the calling party.
The Chat button opens the chat window. You can write messages to a single party or to everyone. A double click on a line in the chat window copies it into the clipboard.
The Log button opens the log. If the icon in the tray has a red exclamation mark near the phone, it means, that a missed call or a message is present in the log.
The MIC button, when not depressed, disables audio acquisition and sending.
The SPK button, when not depressed, disables audio output without muting the overall Wave output of the audio card.
The CONF button puts the connected parties in conference, i.e., forces the connected Picophones to connect with each other. This function works only if the connected parties use Picophone 1.60 or later.

Picophone shows the total used bandwidth in kilobits/second. TX is the transmitted bandwidth, RX is the received bandwidth. The bandwidth indicated includes the UDP and IP headers.

Command line options

Arguments can be given when running Picophone. These arguments are available:

/min Picophone will be started iconized
/call:address Picophone will call the given address, when started.
