Abstract

This invention relates to a method for event signaling without establishing a data path connection in a communication network. The method steps include (a) setting up a dialing path through a network from one device (a server) to another device (a workstation), and (b) detecting a dialing (ringing) event by the server and either removing the path or taking other action. The other action includes propagating a no- connection signal to other equipment.
