       The config file has the format described in isdnformat(5).
       I recommend starting isdnlog  with  -f/etc/isdn/isdn.conf,
       and storing all options in this file in section [options].
       Read the man page for more details.

       Isdnlog will always read  the  /etc/isdn/isdn.conf  config
       file  for the sections [global] [variables] and [isdnlog];
       it will ignore other sections.  To  make  isdnlog  process
       the [options] section you must pass it with the -f option!


       This section holds common information for  all  isdn  pro­
       grams. All settings are for EuroISDN (DSS1).

              Telephone  area  code  of your city. With 1TR6 ISDN
              protocol you must specify your whole telephone num­
              ber (without MSN). Required.

              Prefix  for  area  code.  Default is "0". Your area
              code may start with this prefix  (e.g.  "0721"  and
              "721" is the same area code). Optional.

              Telephone  country  code  (e.g.  49  for  Germany).

              Prefix for country code. Default is "+". Your coun­
              try code may start with this prefix (e.g. "+49" and
              "49" is the same country code). Optional.


       The ISDN tools allow to set variables and use them  later.
       All  variables  must  be  uppercase.  Example  : "MYPATH =


       Settings for isdnlog.

       VBN    The initial numbers of the alternate carrier prefix
              (to  choose  an  alternate telephone provider).  If
              there is more than one  possible  prefix,  separate
              them with colons.

       VBNLEN The number of significant digits after the VBN pre­
              fix that identify the  chosen  carrier  (provider).
              If  there  are different numbers possible, separate
              them with colons.

              country code. This file contains all the connection
              fees  for  all providers to various destinations at
              certain dates/times.  See  rate-files(5)  for  more

              Name and location of holiday-CC.dat.

              Name and location of zone-CC-PPP.cdb.  The provider
              PPP is taken from the D:-tag in rate-CC.dat and  is
              substituted  for  '%s'  in the configuration entry.
              This file contains domestic zone info for all areas
              of a country.

              Name  and  location  of  the  destination  database

              Isdnlog will store a list  of  all  calls  in  this
              file,  and isdnrep will read this file to calculate
              isdn   telephone   costs.    Default    value    is
              "/var/log/isdn.log". Optional.

              Isdnlog can use this command to reactivate the isdn
              subsystem.  Default value is "reload". Optional.

              Isdnlog can use this command to stop the isdn  sub­
              system.  Default value is "stop". Optional.

              Isdnlog  can use this command to reboot linux (when
              all else fails).  Default value is  "/sbin/reboot".

              Cost  per  charge  unit  and  currency.  Default is
              Note: the charge entry is not used anymore.

              Isdnlog can manage your isdn costs and prevent  you
              from  spending more than a maximum per day. Unit is
              national currency. Example: In Germany you want  to
              set CURRENCY to "0.12,DM" and CHARGEMAX to "15.00",
              so you will spend max.  15 DM per day.  Required.

              Isdnlog can also limit your online time in  seconds

              Isdnrep can convert vbox messages. To do this,  you
              should  supply a command. VBOXCMD1 is used with old
              vbox files (<2.0), VBOXCMD2 is used with  new  vbox
              files  (>=2.0).  Example: "VBOXCMD1=/usr/bin/zyxel­
              towav".  Optional.

              Isdnrep can include information from the mgetty fax
              system  in its report. To do this, you must specify
              the     mgetty     spooldir     (e.g.       MGETTY­
              PATH=/var/spool/fax/incoming). Optional.

              Isdnrep  can  convert mgetty fax files. To do this,
              you should supply  a  command.   Example:  "MGETTY­
              CMD=/usr/bin/g3tojpg". Optional.

       START = { ... }
              This   option   is   ignored  without  -S  flag  or
              start=yes. Here you can instruct isdnlog to act  on
              any  event  by starting a command. However, isdnlog
              can not react on outgoing  connections  from  other
              isdn  devices  (e.g.  an isdn telephone). Any start
              commands listed here are used for all  connections,
              including  connections  from unknown telephone num­
              bers.   For  more  information,  please  read  cal­


       You  can  specify  different  format  strings  for the way
       isdnlog reports incoming messages, outgoing messages, isd­
       nrep, and the WWW mode of isdnrep.

       REPFMT Format  for isdnrep (normal mode). Default is "  %X
              %D %15.15H %T %-15.15F %7u %U %I %O".

              Format for isdnrep (WWW mode). Default  is  "%X  %D
              %17.17H %T %-17.17F -20.20l SI: %S %9u %U %I %O".

              Additional format strings for isdnrep.

       ILABEL Format for isdnlog (incoming connections).  Isdnlog
              will add the additional information such  as  RING,
              TIME, CONNECT ...

       OLABEL Format for isdnlog (outgoing connections).  Isdnlog
              will add the additional information such  as  RING,
              TIME, CONNECT ...

       %nx    Local site's telephone number (encoding like %N).

       %cx    Telephone number as given by  CLIP  (encoding  like

       %A     the  text " alias <MSN>" if CLIP message, otherwise

       %I     Magic tab : empty if first  active  B-Channel,  two
              blanks  if second B-Channel, "* " if new connection
              (B-Channel not yet assigned).

       %a     Day of week (e.g. "Fri")

       %b     Month (e.g. "Aug")

       %e     Day of month (e.g. " 8")

       %T     time of day (e.g. "13:17:11")

       %B     B-channel (0 or 1)

       %k     Number of isdn card.

       %( %/ %)
              If the number of the remote  side  is  known:  this
              char,  i.e.  the (, /, or ) that comes after the %.
              If the number if not known, a blank is substituted.
