ringstat(1) Perform a simple test of FXS (station) port ring and audio paths.


ringstat [options]


The ringstat utility performs a simple test of FXS port ring circuits. It exercises the card base functions including the audio path, ring and hook detection. The ports will ring while on hook, play 10 seconds of dial tone if taken off hook, then ring again when they go back on hook.

Press any key (on the keyboard) to end this test.
