Is there a way to tell if someone else is already connected to a Flex-6xxx radio?

I picked up a Flex-6400 radio and since I'm currently in an apartment.  A friend of mine is hosting the radio for me with one of his several antennas.    There are a couple of other radio friends that we have access to the radio also.

So the question is, is there a way to query the radio to find out of someone is already connected to it?  We don't want to step on each others feet while using the radio.  An API call that I can call from a webpage that will say the radio is in use?

Hi Dave,  The connect window choice that first comes up with Maestro or SSDR will list the radio and also show wherther it is "in use" or "available" to connect to.    If it is use there will be a "disconnect" button on the connect screen that can be use to force disconnect the current user.

I believe smartlink will say radio in use if a second person tries to log in.
