Introduction 



About Optional Accessories 

The Seven of Hearts PC Card is designed to function with a variety of optional accessories 
that extend the card's base functionality. For an up-to-date list of accessories and the 
features provided by each, please contact Ositech or visit our website at 
www.ositech.com. Current accessories include: 

• GSM Cellular - Allows connection to popular GSM cellular phones for data/ fax and SMS 
operation 

• ISDN - Allows connection to both North American and European ISDN Networks. 

• CellFlex - 2 in 1 Cellular upgrade allows connections in both Analog and Digital 
coverage areas. 

About Ositech's DPI Technology 

With Ositech's exclusive Digital Phone Interface technology, you can make modem 
connections through the handset cable of digital (PBX) phone systems found in offices 
worldwide. This means you will always have access to the information you need while on 
the road- send and receive data and faxes, and access the I nternet- through office 
digital (PBX) phones. Never again will you waste time searching for an analog phone 
line. 

Analog vs. Digital 

PC Card modems are analog, that is, modems that send data over the telephone network 
as a series of tones. The phones in your home are likely analog too. Thus, you can 
connect your modem to your home telephone. Unlike the phones in your home, the 
phones in offices are usually digital (PBX) phones. Companies use PBX (Private Branch 
exchange) phones because many people can share the incoming phone lines. 

Universal Connectivity 

DPI connections are made through the handset of a digital (PBX) phone. To begin, you 
simply unplug the handset and plug the curly cable into the DPI coupler provided. 
Ositech's DPI software detects the DPI connection and then guides you through any 
necessary steps to complete the connection. 

Registering Your Seven of Hearts PC Card 

You can do one of the following to register your modem: 

• Complete the electronic registration form on our website. 

• Complete and return the registration card included in the box.

Chapter 4: Making Modem Connections 



This section covers: 
• Overview 



Using digital (PBX) phone handsets 



Overview 

You can connect the Seven of Hearts PC Card to the telephone network through digital 
(PBX), or cellular phones. 

Using Digital (PBX) Phone Handsets 

You can connect the Seven of Hearts PC Card to the telephone network via a digital (PBX) 
phone system. You make the connection using the coiled telephone cord which connects 
the handset to the base unit. The coiled telephone cord must detach from the handset to 
make this connection. 

^ Ositech's DPI technology allows the Seven of Hearts PC Card to connect and operate via 
/?\ a telephone handset connection. DPI technology does not allow the Seven of Hearts PC 
f * Card to operate when directly connected to a digital wall jack. 

If you connect your Seven of Hearts PC Card directly to a digital phone system without 
using the DPI coupler, the Seven of Hearts PC Card will not operate. 

Digital Line Protector protects the Seven of Hearts PC Card from damage caused by the 
higher currents of digital phones. 

Connecting to a Digital (PBX) Phone Handset 

To connect the Seven of Hearts PC Card to a digital (PBX) phone handset: 

1 Plug the DPI Cable into the Seven of Hearts PC Card. 

2 Unplug the handset cord from the digital telephone handset jack and plug the 
handset cord into the DPI coupler. 



31 



3 Return the handset to the cradle. 




Figure 4-1: Connecting to a digital phone handset 



The digital phone handset is not attached to the telephone base unit nor the Seven of 
Hearts PC Card. 

Sending Data and Faxes Through Digital (PBX) Phone Handsets 

DPI connections require more operator intervention than standard analog connections. 
With DPI connections, the handset must be operated manually for each call. This is due 
to the extensive variety of digital telephone systems. 

The Seven of Hearts PC Card comes preconfigured to operate with many digital telephone 
systems. If you are unable to establish a DPI connection using the preset DPI settings, 
use the Trumpcard PI LOT to configure the modem for the telephone system you are 
currently using (refer to Adjusting the DPI Settings for details). 

This procedure works with most communications software packages. To use your Seven of 
Hearts PC Card for data or fax operations with a digital connection: 

1 Connect the Seven of Hearts to a digital phone handset. 

Ositech provides a DPI cable which you can use to connect the Seven of Hearts PC Card 
to a digital phone handset. 

2 Operate your communications software as you do normally. 

When your communications software instructs the modem to dial, the DPI Assistant 
intervenes. 

3 Follow the DPI Assistant dialog instructions to establish a DPI connection. 

If the digital (PBX) telephone system prevents the DPI Assistant from accessing an 



32 



outside line, the DPI Assistant prompts you with the number to dial 




DPI Mode Detected 

1 Ensure the handset cable 
is connected to the DPI 
unit, 

2 Lift the handset. 

3 Dial the number, shown 
below, on the base unit 
keypad, 

4 Click Continue. 



Phone Number: 1-555-555-1234 



Figure 4-2: DPI Assistant with phone number 

If the telephone system supports auto-dialing, you will be prompted only to lift the 
handset from the cradle.

Figure 4-3: DPI Assistant to lift handset only 

4 Lift the handset from the cradle. 

Do not return the handset to the cradle until the modem connection is terminated. 
Returning the handset to the cradle terminate the modem connection. 

Do not use handsfree mode. When the handset is removed from the cradle you should not 
hear what is occurring over the telephone line from the digital base unit. 

5 If the DPI Assistant prompts you to do so, dial the phone number. 

6 Click Continue. 

Your communications software continues the modem connection as usual. 

If after multiple attempts your Seven of Hearts PC Card does not connect to the remote 
location you will have to configure the DPI to work with the digital telephone system to 
which your Seven of Hearts PC Card is currently connected. To do so, refer to Adjusting 
the DPI Settings for details.

Chapter 5: Making Network Connections 

This section covers: 

• Overview 

• Connecting to a lOBase-T or 100Base-TX network 

• Network Driver Parameters 



Overview 

The Seven of Hearts can be connected to either a lOBase-T or a 100Base-TX network 
using the direct-connect Ethernet cable. The auto-negotiation feature simplifies the 
transition between lOBase-Tand 100Base-TX environments. 

During the auto-negotiation (N-WAY) process, the Seven of Hearts attempts to determine 
the appropriate speed and duplex operation mode for the hub or network device to which 
it is connected. If the hub or network device supports N-WAY, then the fastest speed and 
duplex operation mode is attempted. If the hub or network device does not support N- 
WAY, the speed is determined and half duplex operation is used. 

To use full duplex operation on a non N-WAY hub or network device, the driver must be 
manually configured. Selecting full duplex operation with a half duplex network 
connection will render the network connection inoperable. 

Connecting to a lOBase-Tor 100Base-TX Network 

To connect the Seven of Hearts to a lOBase-T or 100Base-TX network connection using a 
direct-connect Ethernet cable: 

1 Plug the direct-connect Ethernet cable into the Seven of Hearts socket labeled "Ether- 
net" 

2 Plug the RJ -45 connector into the network port 




Figure 5-1: Connecting the Seven of Hearts 



Making Network Connections 



35 



Interface Cabling and Pinout 

The direct-connect Ethernet cable provided with the Seven of Hearts is wired for direct 
connection to an Ethernet lOBase-T or 100Base-TX Concentrator. If the wiring scheme 
you are using does not match the wiring scheme shown below, then contact Ositech for 
assistance on how to make a network connection in your environment. 




Concentrators 



Lead Signal 

1 TX+ 

2 TX- 

3 RX+ 

4 NC 

5 NC 

6 RX- 

7 NC 

8 NC 



The Seven of Hearts, when used with the supplied direct-connect cable, must always 
connect to a concentrator. This results in a star-wired network with the concentrator at 
the centre of the star. The Seven of Hearts is compatible with lOBase-T and 100Base-TX 
concentrators from a variety of vendors. 



36 



Making Network Connections 



Network Driver Parameters 



The network driver provided for the Seven of Hearts PC Card has parameters that allow 
the user to adjust certain settings needed for some environments. The defaults provided 
will, in most cases, work, but there may be times when manual adjustments may be 
needed. Please do not alter the default settings unless you are certain of their effect in 
your environment, as this may lead to other problems in your network. The default 
parameter values are indicated with an "*" below. 

Connector Type 

This parameter selects the way in which the hardware will be controlled to operate the 
twisted pair connection between the PC Card and the network concentrator. 

*Auto Sense (N- WAY) 

This instructs the network driver to enable the hardware for N-WAY Auto Sensing to allow 
the highest possible speed to be selected when connected to a compatible N-WAY 
concentrator. If the concentrator is not N-WAY compatible, the hardware will sense the 
correct link speed (10 or 100 Mbps) and default to half duplex. If there is no connection 
to a concentrator, the hardware will continue N-WAY detection i ndefi nately. 

Power Save (N-WAY) 

This is very similar to "Auto Sense (N-WAY)," but if the hardware is unable to detect a 
connection to the network, the network driver will abort with an error. The end result 
would be the powering off of the network hardware, saving battery power, and N-WAY 
detection will not continue indefinitely. 

Twisted Pair (100Base-TX) 

This connector will force the hardware to only operate at 100Base-TX and disable N-WAY 
detection. The user must be sure, when selecting this option, that all network 
connections will only operate if connected to a 100Base-TX concentrator or a 10/ 100 
switch. 

Twisted Pair (lOBase-T) 

This will force the hardware to only operate at lOBase-T and disable N-WAY detection. 
The user must be sure, when selecting this option, that all network connections will only 
operate if connected to a lOBase-T concentrator or a 10/ 100 switch. 

Early Receive 

This parameter determines if the network driver should start early processing of a 
received packet instead of waiting for the entire packet before processing the 
information. This feature is very dependant on the network stack controlling the network 
driver. 

*Off: Disable Early Receive 



Making Network Connections 



37 



On: Enable Early Receive 

Full Duplex 

This parameter controls the duplex mode of operation and only takes effect when not 
operating in N-WAY mode. Full Duplex operation allows data to be transmitted and 
received simultaneously but will only function properly if the concentrator also supports 
Full Duplex operation. Enabling Full Duplex operation and connecting to a half duplex 
concentrator will make the network inoperable and can also affect other users on the 
same concentrator. 

*Off: Disable Full Duplex operation 

On: Enable Full Duples operation 

Maximum Transmits 

This parameter controls the amount of transmit packets that can be stored in a Fl FO 
destined for transmission by the hardware. I ncreasing this parameter has an adverse 
effect in that it decreases the Fl FO size for receive packets. 

Settings: 2 through 16, increments of 1 

• Default value is 8 

Network Address 

This parameter allows overriding of the MAC address which is pre-programmed in the 
hardware and loaded by the network driver during hardware initialization. If a Network 
Address is entered, it must be a valid, locally administered MAC address. 

The MAC address must meet the following criteria: 

• Must be six hexadecimal digits in length 

• The multicast bit must be reset 

• The locally administered bit must be set 

*The default setting is: None
