17.1.3. Monitor Mode
The Monitor Mode is similar to the Pass-Through Mode, in that it also
allows direct communication with device(s) connected to PBX Port A,
PBX Port B, the AUX Port, and the Modem Port. Note however, that
while Monitor Mode is active, the VIP will store new PBX records and will
continue to check for records that match Alarm Clues.
Note: NLJ-VIP units do not include PBX Port B or the AUX Port.
To activate the Monitor Mode proceed as follows:
1. From the Main Menu, type 3 and press [Enter] to access the System
2. From the System Functions menu, type 3 and press [Enter]. The VIP
will prompt the user to specify a destination port. Key in the number
for the desired port and press [Enter].
Note: Obviously, the Modem Port cannot monitor the Modem
Port. However, the Console Port and Network Port can monitor the
Modem Port, allowing communication with another user connected
to the unit via the Modem Port.
3. To exit Monitor Mode and return to command mode, type ^B30 and
17.1.4. Clear Alarm Condition
The "Clear Alarm Condition" function is used to cancel pending Alarm
Actions. Note that this function will not clear Alarm Counters; therefore,
additional records that match a counter which has passed the threshold will
generate additional Alarm Actions.
Example: Assume that the counter for an Alarm Clue named "TEST" has
exceeded its threshold and has generated ﬁve pending Alarm Actions. If
the Clear Alarm Condition function is invoked, pending actions will be
canceled, but the counter for TEST will not be reset. Any additional call
records that match the TEST Clue will generate additional Alarm Actions.
To activate the Clear Alarm Condition function from the Main Menu,
type 3 and press [Enter] to access the System Functions menu. From the
System Functions Menu, type 4 and press [Enter]. All pending Alarm
Actions will be canceled.
