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 4 types of lines:

blank line
ignored
comment line, beginning with '#'
ignored
command lines, beginning with 'send'
send DATATYPE
where DATATYPE = cidlog or cidinfo

Most gateways and the command line option of ncid do not need the cidlog. They send a HELLO command at connect so the server does not send cidlog.
command lines, beginning with 'set'
set ITEM = VALUE [ITEM = VALUE] [...]
where ITEM =
announce, audiofmt, blacklist, cidalias, cidinput, cidlog, cidlogmax, cidnoname, datalog, gencid, hangup, hupmode, hupname, huprmd, ignore1, initcid, initstr, lineid, lockfile, pickup, pidfile, port, regex, send, ttyclocal, ttyport, ttyspeed, verbose, whitelist
 

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 for a USB modem:

       set ttyport=/dev/ttyACM0

Set the Telephone Line Indicator for the modem:

       set lineid = POTS

Ignore modems that do not send Caller ID:

       set gencid = 0

Automatically hangup on a call in the blacklist using a modem:
(Gateways must have modem support)

       set hangup = 1

Only use Gateways to obtain the Caller ID with modem support:
(dial is enabled but hangup requires the hangup or hupmode option)

       set cidinput = 2

Only use Gateways to obtain the Caller ID with no modem or serial device:

       set cidinput = 3
