       auphone - a simple telephone client


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


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


       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

       -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 default 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.


       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 ringing sound.  If the callee answers, the username and
       server  address  of  the  callee  will  be  displayed.  To disconnect, click on the Hangup

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

       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 uses the X Toolkit Intrinsics and the Athena Widget Set.   For  more  information,
       see the Athena Widget Set documentation.


       In  addition  to  the  standard  toolkit  environment variables, the following environment
       variables are used by auphone:

               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, auphone will attempt to connect to the audio server  running  on
               the X Window System display.
