PollCat NetLink II - User’s Guide
15.4.1. File Names Created by the Push Function
When the Push function is used, NetLink II will assign a name to the ﬁle
that receives the data. This ﬁle name will be based on the user-deﬁned,
base ﬁle name, the source port, and data type. If desired, ﬁle names can
also include an automatically incremented three character extension. As
shown in Figure 15.4, the ﬁlename consists of the following components:
Note: This ﬁle naming convention applies only to data transferred
by the Push function. A different ﬁle naming convention is
employed when data is transferred using the Server feature.
File Name (Up to Four Characters): The base ﬁle name deﬁned via
item 3 in the Push Conﬁguration menu. If the ﬁle name is not deﬁned,
NetLink II will use the ﬁrst three characters of the Site ID message.
If the Site ID message is not deﬁned, the letters "PNL" will be used.
Note that if the ﬁle name is less than four characters, the remaining
characters in this ﬁeld will not be used.
➁ Source Port (Up to Three Characters): NetLink II will enter from
one to three characters to indicate which input port(s) originally
received the data. NetLink II will enter an "A" for the Serial PBX
Port or an I for the PBX IP Port. If fewer than two source ports are
indicated, the remaining character in this ﬁeld will not be used.
Data Type (One Character): The selected Data Type (File Type.)
NetLink II will list the number for the data type selected at the Push
Conﬁguration menu (see item 31 "Read Session.") These numbers are
1. All: Both Alarm Records and Non-Alarm Records.
2. Standard (Non-Alarm): Only Non-Alarm Records.
3. Alarm Filter 1 (All): All records that matched any clue deﬁned
for Alarm Filter 1.
