Manually suspending and resuming communications

Communications to and from the SafeLinx Client can be manually suspended or resumed.

About this task

If your SafeLinx Client uses a dial connection capable of entering short-hold mode, you can force it into short-hold mode. You might use this function if you end a communication and do not want to wait for the timer to expire. The timer equates to the amount of time specified in the Wait field on the Redial properties of the PPP tab. Right-click the connection or the antenna icon and select Suspend from the menu.

When you suspend communication, the SafeLinx Client enters short-hold mode. Incoming traffic causes it to reconnect.

When you suspend communications, the menu item changes to Resume. If you select Resume, the SafeLinx Client reconnects even if no traffic is flowing, and the timer begins.
