Buffer Functions (Polling)
16.4.1. File Names Created by FTP Push
When the FTP Push feature is used, the VIP 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 16.6, the ﬁlename consists of the following components:
Note: This ﬁle naming convention applies only to data transferred
by the FTP Push feature. A different ﬁle naming convention is
employed when data is transferred using the FTP Server. For more
information, please refer to Section 16.5.3.
File Name (Up to Four Characters): The base ﬁle name deﬁned
via item 6 in the FTP Push Conﬁguration menu. If the ﬁle name is
not deﬁned, the VIP 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 Four Characters): The VIP will enter from one
to four characters to indicate which input port(s) originally received
the data. The VIP will enter an "A" for PBX Port A, "B" for PBX
Port B, "X" for the AUX Port, and/or "I" for the PBX IP Port. If fewer
than four source ports are indicated, the remaining characters in this
ﬁeld will not be used.
