AUPHONE(1)		    General Commands Manual		    AUPHONE(1)

NAME
       auphone - a simple telephone client

SYNOPSIS
       auphone [-a servername] [-v volume] [-l latency]	[-r filename]

DESCRIPTION
       auphone	allows two-way real time voice communication between two audio
       servers.

OPTIONS
       The following options can be used with auphone:

       -a servername
	       This option specifies the audio server to which auphone	should
	       connect.

       -v volume
	       This  is	 the  volume, in percent, for the incoming ring	sound.
	       The default is 15 percent.

       -l latency
	       This is the latency, in seconds,	of the auphone connection.   A
	       lower  value  will result in better real-time communications at
	       the  expense  of	 possibly  overloading	the  server   (causing
	       dropouts)  and  a  greater  network duty	cycle.	A higher value
	       will lessen the load on the server  and	decrease  the  network
	       duty cycle but will increase the	communications delay.  The de-
	       fault value is .25 seconds.

       -r filename
	       You can personalize your	incoming ringing sound	using  the  -r
	       option.	 Simply	 specify  the filename of an audio file	to use
	       for the incoming	ring sound.  Note  that	 this  sound  will  be
	       looped.

USAGE
       To place	a call,	enter the address of the audio server that you wish to
       connect with in the Who text field.  Then hit RETURN or	click  on  the
       Call button.  If	the callee is accepting	calls, you should hear a ring-
       ing sound.  If the callee answers, the username and server  address  of
       the  callee will	be displayed.  To disconnect, click on the Hangup but-
       ton.

       To receive incoming calls, you must already be running auphone.	To an-
       swer an incoming	call, click on the Answer button.  You may also	deter-
       mine who's calling before you answer by clicking	on the Caller ID  but-
       ton.

       Once  you're  connected,	 the  Volume slider controls the volume	of the
       speaker output and the Input Gain slider	and Input Mode toggle  control
       the gain	and mode of the	microphone or line input.

AUPHONE	AND THE	ATHENA WIDGET SET
       auphone	uses  the X Toolkit Intrinsics and the Athena Widget Set.  For
       more information, see the Athena	Widget Set documentation.

ENVIRONMENT
       In addition to the standard toolkit environment variables, the  follow-
       ing environment variables are used by auphone:

       AUDIOSERVER
	       This  variable specifies	the default audio server to contact if
	       -a is not specified on the command line.	 If this  variable  is
	       not  set	 and  the -a is	not specified on the command line, au-
	       phone will attempt to connect to	the audio  server  running  on
	       the X Window System display.
