Id Number Vs. Port Number

Even after reading the help file, I still don't fully understand the difference between ID Number and Port Number.


From :http://www.voiceguid...ltvariables.htm




Identification number of the line device which is handling this call. Can be used in Run Program module to help the called program generate the appropriate Results filename, or in the COM interface to return results to the correct line. The ID number refers to an internal line ID number - not the position in which that line's status is displayed in VoiceGuide's status window.


Line Device's position is VoiceGuide's line status listing. Numbering starts from the top, with first line/port having a $RV_PORTNUMBER of 1, the seconds line/port having a $RV_PORTNUMBER of 2, etc.



I have this Dialogic Card - D4PCIUFEQEU

How many Line_IDs and Ports do I have?

Each Line_ID contain couple of Ports or is it vice versa?


I would like to extract data from the system log files, and need to distinguish between each call (phone line)


Thank you

Port is a physical line/channel number used to carry the call. Port count starts at 1 and increments by 1 for each next port.


LineID is a reference number for devices used by ports. It can be any unique number.


How many Line_IDs and Ports do I have?


D/4PCI* series cards have 4 ports.


D/4PCI* cards only have 1 'LineID' per port.



Each Line_ID contain couple of Ports or is it vice versa?


Each port can have multiple LineIDs associated with it.

How do you config multiple Line for one port?

It's not something that is configured. IDs are just reference numbers for the various types of 'devices' that are used by each port.


eg. each port can have a 'line' device, a 'voice' device, a 'fax' device, a 'speech' device, all attached to and be used by one port.
