NAME

ncidd.alias - NCID Server Alias File  

DESCRIPTION

The ncidd.alias file contains the alias information for ncidd, the NCID Server. It contains the aliases for Caller ID names and numbers. It also contains the aliases for telephone line identifiers.

The ncidd.alias file understands 3 types of lines:

blank line: ignored
comment line, beginning with '#': ignored
alias line: processed

    alias [NMBR|NAME] ["]FROM["] = ["]TO["] [if ["]VALUE["]]
    alias [LINE] ["]FROM["] = ["]TO["
         where  NMBR, NAME or LINE is a KEYWORD
                FROM is a CID string:
                     can be a '*' (match everything) when using if
                TO is the alias for the FROM string
                VALUE is a NAME if KEYWORD = NMBR
                VALUE is a NMBR if KEYWORD = NAME
                      can contain a '^' (partial match from beginning)
                VALUE is a LINE if KEYWORD = LINE
 

EXAMPLES

Change OUT-OF-AREA to UNAVAILABLE in both name and number fields:
       alias OUT-OF-AREA = UNAVAILABLE

Change OUT-OF-AREA to UNAVAILABLE in the name field only:

       alias NAME OUT-OF-AREA = UNAVAILABLE

Change any name to a specific name for a phone number:

       alias NAME * = "John on cell" if 4075551212

Change any name to a specific name matching the beginning of a phone number

       alias NAME * = "Toll Free" if ^800

Mask a phone number:

       alias NMBR 4075551212 = "----------"

The default line indicator for a POTS line is "-". The ncid client will not display the "-" indicator. To display 'POTS' for a POTS line:

       alias LINE - = POTS

To not display a gateway line indicator, change it from the one received a '-'. If the line indicator is '1122':

       alias LINE 1122 = -

Change any line indicator to VOIP. Be careful to place this after a POTS line indicator if a POTS line is also present:

       alias LINE * = VOIP
