Call connected to: XXXXXXXX     A virtual circuit has been established
                                between an originating DTE and a remote
                                (receiving) DTE.

Hunted                          The remote logical channel is part of
                                a hunt group.

Backed Up                       The call attempt to the remote DTE has failed.
                                The network has re-directed the call to
                                another predetermined DTE that has been
                                optioned as backup.

i                               The call has been placed to an international
                                address.

Datapac Domestic Service
------------------------

There are thrity-three messages which may appear when you are
accessing the Datapac network.  All of these network-generated
messages which are sent to a terminal, are written as "Datapac:
text".  The "text" will be one of the following messages:

     TEXT               EXPLANATION

(a)  ADDRESS            This is a Datapac herald message for an SVC
                        terminal.  The "address" displayed is your
                        Datapac network address.  This message
                        indicates that you are connected to the
                        Datapac network.  Proceed with the call
                        request command.

(b)  {P,R} TERMINAL     This is a Datapac herald message for a PVC
                        terminal.  It indicates that you are
     (DESTINATION       connected to the network (address and
     ADDRESS LOGICAL    destination address)
     CHANNEL)

(c)  CLOSED USER GROUP  These messages indicate an error in the call
     ERROR INVALID      request command--correct and re-enter the
     ADDRESS, MORE      command.

(d)  CALLED BY   or     This message indicates that a host or
                 [N][I] terminal has called you.  Proceed with
     ADDRESS (XXX)      sign-on.  (Note: P or N denotes grade of
                        service. R specifies the charging option,
                        if applicable.  I specifies that it is an
                        international call.  (XXX) specifies the
                        logical channel number if it is a national
                        call, and specifies the gateway id if it
                        is an international call.

(e)  CALL CONNECTED     This message indicates that the SVC
                        connection between your terminal and the
                        destination has been established
                        successfully.

(f)  RE-ENTER           This message indicates that a transmission
                        error has occurred in the current input line.
                        Re-enter the line.  If the problem persists,
                        report the trouble to Telecom Canada.

(g)  INPUT DATA LOST    This message indicates that a transmission
                        error has occurred.  Since part of your input
                        line has already been transmitted to the
                        destination, enter a "line delete" character
                        for your application and a carriage return
                        (CR).  When the destination replies, re-enter
                        the line.

(h)  PARITY ERROR       This message indicates that a parity error
                        has occurred in the current input line from
                        a terminal which is operating in echo mode.
                        The character which is in error is not
                        echoed.  Re-enter the character and continue
                        normal input.  If the problem persists,
                        report the trouble to Telecom Canada.

(i)  INPUT ERROR        This message indicates that there is a
                        network problem, due to overruns.  If the
                        problem occurs often, contact Telecom
                        Canada.

(j)  PVC -              This message indicates that a network problem
     DISCONTINUED       is preventing the requested call from
     TEMPORARY          continuing.  Wait for the Datapac herald
     NETWORK PROBLEM    message, then continue.  If the condition
                        persists, contact Telecom Canada.

(k)  PVC                This message indicates that either the access
     DISCONTINUED -     line to the destination, or the destination
     DESTINATION        itself is down.  Try again later.  If the
     NOT RESPONDING     condition persists, contact the destination.

(l)  PVC                This message indicates that the desti-
     DISCONTINUED -     nation has asked that the connection be
     REMOTE REQUEST     discontinued.

(m)  INVALID COMMAND    This message indicates that there is a
                        syntax error in the command.  Correct it
                        and re-enter the command.

(n)  COMMAND            This message indicates that the command
     NOT ALLOWED        which was entered, although syntactically
                        correct, cannot be implemented either due
                        to the NIM state, or because it violates
                        and/or conflicts with the service options
                        selected --e.g., a call request command,
                        when an SVC is already established.

(o)  CALL CLEARED--     This message indicates that the destination
     DESTINATION BUSY   computer cannot accept another call.  Try
                        again later.

(p)  CALL CLEARED--     This message indicates that the call request
     INCOMPATIBLE       command includes facilities which are not
     CALL OPTIONS       available at the destination or are
                        incompatible with it.  Verify and try the
                        call again.  If the problem persists, contact

(r)  CALL CLEARED--     This message indicates that the desti-
     DESTINATION NOT    nation is either not acknowledging your
     RESPONDING         request to connect or it is inoperable.
                        Try again later.  If the problem persists,
                        contact the destination.

(s)  CALL CLEARED--     This message indicates that the network has
     ACCESS BARRED      blocked your call because of a Closer User
                        Group violation.  Verify the call establishment
                        procedures with the destination.

(t)  CALL CLEARED --    This message indicates that the network
     ADDRESS NOT IN     address in the call request command
     SERVICE            identifies a non-existent destination--

                        longer) assigned.  Verify the address
                        and re-enter the call request command.
                        If the condition persists, contact the
                        destination.

(u)  CALL CLEARED --    This message indicates that the desti-
     COLLECT CALL       nation is not willing to accept the charges
     REFUSED            for the connection (e.g., it does not
                        accept calls from Datapac 3101 public
                        dial ports).  Verify the call establish-
                        ment procedures and try the call again.

DATAPAC NETWORK MESSAGES
Service     - INTERNATIONAL SERVICE

DATAPAC INTERNATIONAL
=====================

There are several messages which may appear when you are accessing
foreign packet switching networks through the Datapac X.75 gateways.
All of these network-generated messages which are sent to a terminal,
are written as "DATAPAC:TEXT".  The TEXT will be one of the following
messages.  These messages may originate from within DATAPAC or from
within any foreign network that is involved in the call or call
attempt.

(a)  CALL CLEARED --     A network problem within a Datapac
     TEMPORARY NETWORK   or foreign network prevents either
     PROBLEM (XXY)       the requested call from being established
                         or the established call from being
                         continued.  Try again later.

(b)  CALL CLEARED --     Either the foreign network requested is not
     ADDRESS NOT IN      accessible from Datapac, or the foreign
     SERVICE (XXY)       network address specified identifies a non-
                         existent destination, i.e., the address is
                         not yet assigned or no longer assigned.
                         Verify with destination that the foreign
                         network is accessable from Datapac and that
                         the foreign network address is assigned.

(c)  CALL CLEARED --     The calling terminal is not permitted to
     ACCESS BARRED       establish an international call to the
     (XXY)               called destination address because of a
                         closed user group violation.  Verify
                         network address with destination.

(d)  CALL CLEARED --     Either the foreign network or the desti-
     COLLECT CALL        nation address is not willing to accept
     REFUSED (XXY)       the collect calls.  Verify the call
                         establishment procedures with destination.

(e)  CALL CLEARED --     The Call Request is considered invalid
     INCOMPATIBLE        by the foreign network mainly because of
     CALL OPTIONS        the incorrect number of digits in the
     (XXY)               foreign network address.  Verify foreign
                         network address with destination.

(f)  CALL CLEARED --     The destination is out of order, possibly
     DESTINATION NOT     because the destination's network access
     RESPONDING (XXY)    link is inoperative.  Try again later
                         and verify with destination.

(g)  CALL CLEARED --     The destination address called is fully
     DESTINATION BUSY    engaged (no logical channels available)
     (XXY)               and cannot accept another call at this
                         time.  Try again later.

(h)  CALL CLEARED --     This message indicates a protocol error at
     REMOTE PROCEDURE    the remote DTE interface.  Check with remote
     ERROR (XXY)         DTE  (destination).


Gateway Identification
----------------------

The network generated messages sent to Datapac ITI terminals include
a 3-digit field to identify the gateway involved.  This field is
shown as (XXY) for the network messages listed in above.

If the call has not been established, the XXY = 000.  If the call has
been established, then

XX = 2-digit Datapac Service Exchange (DSE) of the gateway node used
     for the call

Y = Gateway ID of the gateway used for the call.
