ncidd: ncidd configuration file

NAME

ncidd.conf - ncidd configuration file

DESCRIPTION

The ncidd.conf file contains the configuration information for ncidd, the Network Caller ID Server.

The ncidd.conf file is used to set options. Options are set on a command line. A line is broken up into words. A word is either a string of non-blank characters, everything between double quotes, or an equal sign.

The ncidd.conf file understands 5 types of lines:

blank line
skip it
comment line, beginning with '#'
skip it
command lines, beginning with 'send'
send DATATYPE
where DATATYPE = cidlog, cidinfo
command lines, beginning with 'set'
set ITEM = VALUE [ITEM = VALUE] [...]
where ITEM = cidlog, cidlogmax, datalog, initcid, initstr, lockfile, noserial, port, ttyclocal, ttyport, ttyspeed, nomodem, verbose

EXAMPLES

Send the CID log to each client at connect:
       send cidlog

Send the ring count, at each ring, to each client

       send cidinfo

Set the modem for Caller ID:

       set initcid = "AT#CID=1"

Set the modem port:

       set ttyport=/dev/ttyS1

Set the Telephone Line Indicator for the modem:

       set lineid = POTS

Use a modem and possibly a Gateway to obtain the Caller ID:

       set noseriel = 0

Do not use a modem, just use a Gateway to obtain the Caller ID:

       set noseriel = 1
