Managing X.25 Physical Links

      Disclosed is a technique which allows an end user to manage
X.25 Physical Links currently configured and active in the system.
The functions that are supported in this disclosure are:  Display,
Connect, Autoconnect and Disconnect of an X.25 Physical Link.  These
functions allow the user to interactively manage/ control the state
of the X.25 links.

      All of the above-mentioned support is accomplished through the
use of PCUIS conforming dialog panels that allows the user to select
one or more of the X.25 physical links for the function to be
performed.  The addition of the X.25 physical link services to
Subsystem Management is the first use of maintaining X.25 physical
links in a real-time communications environment.

      The information, which is displayed to the user on each of the
operations offered in the physical link services, are:  Link name,
Link status, Link mode and Active SVCs. This information allows for
easy identification and status of the users X.25 physical link(s).
