zt_registration − Handle registration of Xorcom XPD modules in zaptel.


zt_registration [−s sortorder] [on|off]


Without parameters, show all connected XPDs sorted by physical connector order. Each one is show to be unregistered (off), or registered to a specific zaptel span (the span number is shown).

All registerations/deregisterations are sorted by physical connector string.

Span registration should generally always succeed. Span unregistration may fail if channels from the span are in use by e.g. asterisk. In such a case you’ll also see those channels as ’(In use)’ in the output of lszaptel(8).


off -- deregisters all XPD ’s from zaptel.

on -- registers all XPD ’s to zaptel.


−s sort_order

The sort order to use.

If the option is not used, the sort order is taken from the environment variable XBUS_SORT and failing that: the hard-coded default of SORT_XPPORDER .

The available sorting orders are documented in Zaptel::Xpp manual.

Reading from this file shows if if the if the specific XPD is registered. Writing to it 0 or 1 registers / unregisters the device.

This should allow you to register / unregister a specific XPD rather than all of them.
