PAGE 2 CONTENTS
INTRODUCTION
CYBACK is an ancillary software package running on IBM (or clone) PC.
It enables you as the user to both BACKUP and RESTORE operational data
held on any individual DNC 60, DNC 600, DNC 7000, DNC 70, DNC 30,
DNC 50, DNC 20 or DNC 10 in your work environment using RS232/422
cables and connectors.
Thus you are at liberty to economize on cabling requirements through the use
of a central T-bar type switch to change from one destination DNC to another
with minimum effort.

DNC .... (1)


COM port 1
Commutateur
central
CONNEXIONS RS232
DNC ....
PC +
DOS

DNC ....
COM port 2

DNC .... (2) RESEAU RS232

At the moment, up to 10 such links are permitted.


Note that CYBACK can BACKUP & RESTORE data for any version of
DNC software.
It is not necessary to know precisely what software is installed on a given
machine before backing up its data. However, it is absolutely imperative that
data backed up for a given DNC is always restored (when the occasion arises)
to the very same machine from which it originated, or, alternatively, a
machine running exactly the same version of software.

INTRODUCTION PAGE 3
CYBACK facilitates this habitual good practice by identifying links by name
strings. But its effective use depends equally upon the operator correctly
assigning a link at backup/restore time, either using separate cables, or using
the T-bar switch.
Remember that the software cannot check for the right physical connection,
nor identify the transmitting DNC.
The PC is always the "master", whatever the nature of the link configuration
is. The DNC is always the "slave".
In other words, it is the operator of the PC who commands a transfer from its
keyboard. The operator of the DNC is not able to carry out this manipulation,
except for the "Wait state" where the transfer can be ordered from the DNC.
It is nevertheless possible to cancel a current transfer, either on the PC or on
the DNC (see paragraph Passive mode and wait state, page 11).

PAGE 4 CYBACK USER GUIDE


GETTING STARTED
Copy the CYBACK_WIN.EXE file to the location you wish to have it on
your hard disk.
Eventually make a shortcut, which you will place on your "desk" in order to
facilitate the starting of the program.

ESTABLISHING THE PHYSICAL LINK


Any RS232 cable for use with CYBACK must be fitted at both ends with
SUB D connectors. Male-to-female and female-to-male adaptors are
recommended when connections are found to be awkward.
See annexes for physical connections, page 15.
One essential item of equipment in your physical link is an invertor. This
swaps the "SEND" and "RECEIVE" channels.
A very frequent cause of communications failure in an RS232 link is the
absence of send/receive inversion.
Please make sure that you include an invertor (visible or otherwise) in your
transmission circuit.

GETTING STARTED PAGE 5

PAGE 6 CYBACK USER GUIDE


USING CYBACK

CREATING A LINK
Click on "Tab" Setup.

Give a clear and unequivocal name to each link if you have defined several of
them.
If it concerns a fixed installation with several machines, you surely will opt
for a switch with several positions on the RS 232 line.
So you can define a switch position for each machine.
Also select in which directory the data will be stored.

The default values on your PC correspond exactly to the same default


parameters of your DNC.

Com port Specifies the communication port of the PC for


the link.
Default value: 1.

Baud rate Transmission speed in bits/second.


110, 150, 300, 600, 2400, 4800 or 9600.
Default value: 4800.

USING CYBACK PAGE 7


Parity Transmission parity.
0 = None, no parity
1 = odd
2 = even
Default value: NONE

Protocol Allows the selection of different transmission


protocols.
0 = DNC Xon (alike DNC).
1 = DNC Xor (alike DNC).
2 = BIP box,
to transfer via a BIP box (32k bytes
memory card) directly connected to the PC
RS232 port.
The data are compatible with the DNC in
BIP mode.
Box configuration: refer to the BIP manual.
3 = Puncher
alike the DNC with 2 or 3
Default value: 0 – Xon.

Selector pos. If several links are in use via a central switch,


then they can be labelled.
Whole numbers between 0 and 10 permitted.
Default value: 1.
It is very important to change the position of
the switch whenever a change from one link to
another occurs. Otherwise there is a danger that
a restore might be made to a certain DNC
which is in fact intended for another one, the
destination DNC's data being destroyed in the
process.

Data bits Number of data bits per character transmitted.


7 or 8.
Default value: 8.

Stop bits Number of stop bits per character transmitted.


0 or 1.
Default value: 1.

DNC Nr Optional.
DNC number to which the link is physically
connected. This can be a serial number or a
position number.
This could be useful if, for example, you have
to define several DNCs on the same physical
link, and need to distinguish between them,
reconnecting the cable from one to another.
However, sharing a link in this way is not
recommended, since the risk of erroneous
RESTORES is increased.

Make sure that the DNC(s) is(are) programmed with the same configuration.

PAGE 8 CYBACK USER GUIDE


DATA TRANSMISSION

BACKING UP DATA

Click on "Tab" Backup DNC => PC.

Verify that the name of the connection (Data link) and the position of
the possible selector really correspond to the connected machine.
Select what you wish to back up.
Press the "Ctrl" key + click to select several, non-adjacent products.
Press the "Shift" key + click to select several adjacent products.
Make sure that the DNC is in programming mode and that the stop is
off.
Then start the transfer.

Restore:
The procedure is identical.

USING CYBACK PAGE 9


RESTORE DATA

Click on "Tab" Restore PC => DNC.


The procedure is idential with backing up.

PAGE 10 CYBACK USER GUIDE


PASSIVE MODE AND WAIT STATE
CYBACK has two distinct modes: ACTIVE and PASSIVE.
The default value is ACTIVE and automatically used for all the above
described trials.
This means that all data transfers in the form of backups and restores can only
be started from the PC keyboard.
There exists however an alternative PASSIVE mode which allows to
command the transfer from the DNC, the PC remains nevertheless the
"master".
Select "Tab" Setup and click on "Wait for DNC …..".

Wait state mode

PASSIVE MODE AND WAIT STATE PAGE 11


TRANSFER FROM THE DNC
To execute the transfer from the DNC, please refer to the DNC manual.
When the transfer actually begins, the display shows RUN.
There will be a delay of up to 30 seconds before the PC starts to
process the request.

PAGE 12 CYBACK USER GUIDE


OPERATOR INTERVENTION DURING DATA TRANSFER
It is fully possible to abort a RESTORE or BACKUP data transfer, once
initiated.
This can be effected from either the DNC or the PC.
If the abort is initiated from the PC keyboard, then it is normally necessary to

press the button on the DNC front panel before restarting the transfer,
since the DNC cannot automatically exit its current "transmission" state.
On the other hand if the DNC initiates the abort when an operator presses the

button, then the DNC will automatically be ready for another


transmission attempt.

HOW TO ABORT FROM THE PC KEYBOARD

Press the key.


You will then see a message in dark red at the foot of the screen confirming
that the current BACKUP or RESTORE has been interrupted, and that the
operation has not been completed.
However, before making another attempt to BACKUP/RESTORE it is

necessary to press on the relevant DNC.


If this is not done, then the message DNC BUSY will appear soon after the
start of the next attempt.

HOW TO ABORT FROM THE DNC FRONT PANEL

Press the button. The DNC <−−> PC indicator at the top of the DNC
screen will disappear.
Approximately 5 seconds later on the PC screen a message will appear in
dark red at the foot of the screen to the effect that the DNC does not reply,
that transmission has been interrupted and that the Backup/Restore has not
been completed.
