Inside the Macintosh Communications Toolbox (ISBN 0-201-57775-5) describes the Communications Toolbox in detail. It is not currently available online.
Chapters in this document describe the following parts of the Communications Toolbox:
- The Communications Resource Manager maintains a database of communications resources. Your program typically uses the Communications Resource Manager to obtain the list of serial ports for a computer.
- The Communications Toolbox Utilities allow you to present a standard dialog box, similar to the Chooser, for selecting a Name Binding Protocol (NBP) entity.
- The Connection Manager maintains a database of connection tools that allow your program to create and configure a transport-independent connection. The Connection Manager is most commonly used for accessing modems.
- The File Transfer Manager maintains a database of file transfer tools that allow your program to transfer files independently of the actual file transfer protocol. Typically, you would use the File Transfer Manager to access file transfer tools for protocols such as XMODEM and Kermit.
- The Terminal Manager maintains a database of terminal emulation tools that allow your program to create terminal emulation windows that are independent of the actual terminal type.
