16.5.3. File Names for the FTP Server Function
When your FTP program connects to the VIP unit, it will display a series
of ﬁle names. Each ﬁle name denotes the type of data stored in the
corresponding ﬁle. The ﬁle names generated by the FTP server function
are based on the user-selected basic ﬁle name, the source port that collected
the data, and the data type. As shown in the example in Figure 16.9, the ﬁle
name will consist of the following components.
Note: This ﬁle naming convention applies only to the FTP
Server function. A different convention is used when data is
transferred using FTP Push. For more information, please refer to
File Name (Up to Four Characters): The base ﬁle name that is
deﬁned via item number 3 in the FTP Server 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 has not been deﬁned,
the VIP will use the letters "PNL". Note that if the deﬁned ﬁle name is
less than four characters long, then the VIP will not use the remaining
characters in this ﬁeld.
Source Port (One Character): The VIP will enter one character to
indicate the port which originally received this data; the letter "A"
indicates PBX Port A, "B" indicates PBX Port B, "X" indicates the
AUX Port, and "I" indicates the PBX IP Port. Note that ﬁles created
by the FTP Server Function will only contain data from one input port.
Data Type (Two Characters): The VIP will list one of three different
data types: ST indicates that the ﬁle contains Standard (Non-Alarm)
data, A1 indicates that the ﬁle contains records that matched Alarm
Filter 1, and A2 indicates that the ﬁle contains records that matched
Alarm Filter 2.
