Settings explanation

Identity: the name of the party. It will be presented when establishing calls.
Codec: GSM,Truespeech or MS G.723.1. GSM is the standard codec used and is usually always available. The others use less bandwidth, but they are not always installed with all the versions of Windows. MS G.723.1 should give the best quality/bandwidth ratio.
HQ audio: enables higher quality audio by sampling at 16 kHz instead of 8 kHz. The occupied network bandwidth will be doubled.
10 dB mic gain: if checked, the microphone input will be digitally increased by 10 dB.
10 dB out gain: if checked, the audio output will be digitally increased by 10 dB.
Generate log: generates log of incoming calls and of received messages (not chat).
Picoserver:is the IP address of the Picoserver (the use of the Picoserver is optional). If it is entered here, Picophone will try to connect with it and when trying to call someone, the name will be resolved with the Picoserver first.
Picoserver password: is the password used to authenticate on the Picoserver.
Recording device: The audio device used to record the sound to transmit.
Playing device: The audio device used to play the sound received.
Process priority: the priority class of the process. It is useful to increase the process priority, when the audio is choppy due to other CPU-hungry applications.
Port number: the port number, where PicoPhone accepts calls. 11676 is the default.
Input threshold (dB, THR): if the signal level is lower than this, no transmission occurs.
Frames per packet (PKT): number of audio frames transmitted in one UDP packet. Higher is this number, less is the overhead for header transmission and lower the bandwidth used, but the delay of the receiver will be higher.
Min delay (ms, MIN): the receiver will impose this initial minimal delay..
Max delay (ms, MAX): the receiver won't allow a delay higher than this and will throw away packets which would increase the delay above this value.
On incoming call: ask: the program will ask the user, if the call should be accepted or not.
On incoming call: refuse: the program will automatically refuse every call. The calling user will receive a message indicating that the call is being refused and the message will contain the identity of the user refusing the call.
On incoming call: accept: the program will automatically accept every call.
On incoming call: ignore: the program will ignore incoming calls. The calling user will receive a message indicating that the remote PicoPhone is not responding.
Alert with beeper: when an incoming call is received, the program will produce a sound with the internal speaker instead of playing the file ringing.wav.
Light background: the background of the program will be changed to a light gray color.
Startup automatically: if set, the program is present in the startup group in order to be started automatically. It will be started iconized.
