Identity: the name
of the party. It will be presented when establishing calls.
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
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).
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.
is the password used to authenticate on the Picoserver.
The audio device used to record the sound to transmit.
Playing device: The
audio device used to play the sound received.
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.
the background of the program will be changed to a light gray color.
if set, the program is present in the startup group in order to be started
automatically. It will be started iconized.
