The response from the DIBS system depends on the reply type in the function call.

If replytype=text or replytype=html the answer will be of the type:

“Last contact to the acquirer was established at dd/mm-yyyy at”.

Where dd/mm-yyyy is the date and is the time.

If replytype=num was sent, the answer will be either 0 or 1 (1 for "ok" and 0 for "down").
