Note : There is a smaller version of this called the VSCBX.
But you know what's REALLY Great? They have made the network link in mind for the person with a Computer IQ of about 0. Commands are in plain English. Here is a demonstration screen as seen in their brochure:
CALL, DISPLAY or MODIFY Display groups ACCESSIBLE GROUPS:  PAYROLL  MODEM  IBMHOST  DOWJONES  DECSYSTM  MIS-SYSTM  DALLAS  SALES CALL, DISPLAY OR MODIFY? Call Payroll CALLING 7717See, nothing is confusing, everything pretty self-explanatory. There may be more than one person wanting to do the same thing you are, so if there is, you would be put on a queue for the task. It seems that those with an IBM would be best suited for ROLM hacking, because ROLM is owned by IBM, and the PC's used by the network are IBM. A person with a simpler fone/Terminal couldn't access something like their DEC mainframe, or something like that. By calling in, you could not run an application, unless you had a special interface, but you could access the database, which any dumb terminal could do.
CALL COMPLETE **PAYROLL SYSTEM** ENTER ACCOUNT CODE:
However, there are security levels. Thus one with a privileged account could access more things than one without it. Like Joe Schmoe in Sales couldn't get to Payroll . It seems that for non-IBM's to access some of the parts of the network, you would need an interface to become the same thing as a RolmPhone.
Excessive 's of bad logon attempts, which would be construed as a linking error would notify the network manager, And if they saw that there was no hardware error, eventually, they would think of if they were somewhat experienced, you guessed it, hackers.
But what about if there is Equal Access in that area? It doesn't matter, the CBX will automatically access the service without you having to worry about it <hell, this is totally unnecessary for a hack/phreak, cause we ain't paying for the damn call anyhow!>
BUT!: There is a use of Call Detail Recording, where information on all ingoing and outgoing calls are recorded.
Sysops: You are free to put this file up as long as NONE of the credits are changed! <this means the Phrack, Inc. AND Personal credits>. Please give us a chance.
Coming soon, to a telephone near you: The Return of The Flying Circus. Look for it.
