Re: SPID and portmaster 2 BRI.
SPID stands for Service Profile ID, and you need it in order for your BRI to be operational. There has to be SOMEONE at your phone company that knows what it is, unless your modem(s) support AutoSPID (which downloads/auto-senses the information from the switch..) Anyway, one way or the other, you need to get the SPID or the line will not work. By the way, the convention for SPID in (most of) north america is the phone number +0101. i.e. if your phone number is 987-654-3219, then your SPID would be 98765432190101. I don't know if this is the same in Japan, but you might wanna try that before you go trying to get an answer out of anyone at your local phone company.. Hope this helps. --Adam --- bash: syntax error near unexpected token `:)' Adam McKenna email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org -----Original Message----- From: Tatsuya Kawasaki <email@example.com> To: nanog ml <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Tuesday, June 09, 1998 2:33 AM Subject: SPID and portmaster 2 BRI. Hello... I am sure someone up there knows something about 5ESS and portmaster 2. Our local teleco does not seem to know what SPID is. As far as I know according to the livingston manual, I should set up SPID in order to use ISDN.(well actually it is not true for switch type NTT.) I even call the company who sold the 5ESS to the teleco, Lucent Techonologies, Japan, they could not help us all. According a field engineer, he has never heard of it. He looked up the manual, he could not find SPID. Now this bring me to ask someone in this group. 1. What SPID is called in teleco lingo? 2. what switch types are capable with lucent 5ESS? 2.1 why can I find out which switch type we are really getting? 2.3 all I know from the teleco is their telecom "machine" is called 5ESS. 2.4 They believe 5ESS is the switch type but ... 3. what network layer does this SPID setting is used? 3.1 any more info on this SPID on ITU 400s ? 4. Does anyone use portmaster 2 with BRI on 5ESS switch type? 5. Any direct number to lucent Techologies that I could ask some questions about SPID and 5ESS stuff? 6. Any suggestions? sincerely yours, Tatsuya = = = = = = Business Network Telecom (BNT) $B%S%8%M%9%M%C%H%o!<%/%F%l%3%`3t<02q<R(B $B")(B111-0053$B!!El5~ETBfEl6h@uAp66(B3-8-5 31$B;35~%S%k(B6$B3,(B TEL 03-5687-3945 FAX 03-5687-6009 http://www.giganet.net
