184.108.40.206. Disconnecting Ports
There are three different methods for disconnecting ports, the
Resident Disconnect, the Third Party Disconnect, and the No
Activity Timeout. Providing the Timeout feature is enabled, a
No Activity Timeout will disconnect resident ports or
third party ports.
Note: Option 74 in the Port Parameters Menu
determines how the DTR signal will react when the
port disconnects. The DTR signal can either be held
low, held high, or pulsed and then held high.
1. Resident Disconnect: Disconnects your resident port from
another port. For example, if you are communicating via
Port 3, and Port 3 is connected to Port 4, a Resident
Disconnect would be used to disassociate the two ports.
The CMS offers two different Resident Disconnect
command formats; the One Character Format and the Three
Character Format (for more information, please refer to
Note: The Resident Disconnect methods discussed here
cannot be used to terminate a Telnet "Direct Connection"
or an outbound Telnet connection. Direct Connections are
terminated using the Telnet program's disconnect
command, and outbound connections are terminated by
invoking the ^] (Control plus Right Bracket) command.
For more information, please refer to Sections 8.2 and 8.4.
a) One Character (Default): When the One Character
Disconnect Sequence is selected, simply enter the
selected Logoff Character once (Default = ^X ([Ctrl]
plus [X])). Note that it is not necessary to enter a
carriage return before or after the Logoff Character.
b) Three Characters: Uses the format
“[Enter]LLL[Enter]”, where Lis the selected Logoff
Character. For example, if the Logoff Character is
defined as "+", then the three character disconnect
sequence would be [Enter]+++[Enter].
c) If the default Resident Disconnect Sequence is not
compatible with your application, both the command
format and Logoff Character can be redefined via the
Port Configuration menus, as described in Section 5.5.
