       atmsigd.conf - configuration file for the ATM signaling demon


       atmsigd.conf  contains  configuration  data for atmsigd.	 atmsigd reads
       atmsigd.conf after parsing the command line options, before  connecting
       to the ATM network.

       Configuration parameters are arranged in functional groups. In order to
       set a parameter, the name of the group, the name of the parameter,  and
       the parameter value(s) have to be specified, e.g.

	    sig level debug

       decreases  the  logging	threshold for messages related to signaling to
       the debug level. The following options are recognized:

       debug dump path
	      Specifies the directory to which atmsigd will write  status  and
	      trace  dumps.  If	 tracing is not yet enabled, the trace size is
	      automatically set to a (small) default value.

       debug level level
	      Sets the default debug level to  level.  level  can  be  any  of
	      debug, info, warn, error, and fatal. Only messages with the same
	      or a higher priority than the debug  level  are  printed.	  Note
	      that the command-line option -d generates even more output (e.g.
	      hexdumps of all packets passing between atmsigd and the network)
	      than debug level debug.

       debug log path
	      Specifies	 the  file  to	which atmsigd writes logging messages.
	      When using the special file name syslog, messages	 are  send  to
	      the  system logger instead. Log messages are written to standard
	      output if no log file is specified. Writing to  standard	output
	      can  also be explicitly requested by using the special file name

       debug trace [number]
	      Enables tracing and optionally sets the number of	 entries  that
	      should be kept in the trace buffer. A (small) default is used if
	      the number is omitted.

       io level level
	      Sets the debug level for IO-related messages to level.

       io max_rate rate
	      Sets the rate to signal if an application	 requests  the	"maxi‐
	      mum".  See qos(7) for the syntax to use for expressing the rate.
	      The default maximum rate is  353207  cells/second	 (OC3).	 (Note
	      that  the	 value	of  max_rate  does  not constrain the rates an
	      application can explicitly request.)

       io qos qos
	      Configures the signaling VC to use the specified QOS (see qos(7)
	      for  the	syntax).  By default, UBR at link speed is used on the
	      signaling VC.

       io vc [itf.]vpi.vci
	      Uses the specified VC for	 signaling  messages  instead  of  the
	      usual 0.0.5.

       saal level level
	      Sets the debug level for messages related to SAAL (i.e. SSCF and
	      SSCOP) to level.

       sig level level
	      Sets the debug level for messages related to  signaling  (Q.2931
	      or ISP) to level.

       sig mode mode
	      Set  the	mode  of operation. The following modes are available:
	      user for the user side, network for the network side, and switch
	      for operation in a switch. The default behaviour is user.

       sig uni30
	      Use  UNI	3.0  signaling.	 If specified together with sig uni31,
	      this option sets UNI 3.1 signaling with a few backwards-compati‐
	      bility extensions.

       sig uni31
	      Use  UNI	3.1  signaling.	 This  option can be combined with sig
	      uni30 (see above).

       sig uni40
	      Use UNI 4.0 signaling. This option  can  be  combined  with  sig
	      q.2963.1 (see below).

       sig q.2963.1
	      Enable  peak cell rate renegotiation. This option is only avail‐
	      able with UNI 4.0 signaling.

       sig vpci vpci itf itf
	      Sets up a very simplistic type of routing. All calls  with  VPCI
	      values  equal to or greater than vpci will be routed to itf, and
	      their VPI values will be set to the signaled  VPCI  minus	 vpci.
	      Multiple	sig  vpci  entries can be used to support an arbitrary
	      number of interfaces.  Example: with sig vpci 4 itf  1,  a  call
	      signaled	for  VPCI/VCI  0.x is routed to 0.0.x, a call signaled
	      for 6.y is routed to 1.2.y, etc.

       policy level level
	      Sets the debug level for messages related to policy decisions to

       policy decision direction address
	      Takes  the  specified  decision  for  calls  from or to address.
	      decision can be either allow or reject. direction is either from
	      or  to.  The address may be wildcarded by prepending a slash and
	      the number of significant bits (NSAP) or	digits	(E.164).   The
	      rules  are  searched  in	the order in which they appear in atm‐
	      sigd.conf until the first match. If no rule matches, the call is

       entity [itf.]vpi.vci { options ... }
	      Activates	 a  signaling  entity  on  that	 specific VC. Multiple
	      entity clauses can appear in the same configuration. When	 using
	      entity, the option io vc is not available.  entity is optionally
	      followed by the following options,  enclosed  in	curly  braces:
	      vpci  (corresponds to sig vpci), mode (corresponds to sig mode),
	      qos (corresponds to vc qos), route, and default.	The  last  two
	      options  determine  how  outbound	 calls	are  routed. The route
	      option is	 followed  by  an  address  in	the  format  used  for
	      addresses	 in policy. If no route entry matches the called party
	      number of an outbound call, the entry  marked  with  default  is

       When  setting  multiple	parameters  in	the same group, the group name
       doesn't have to be repeated if it is  followed  by  the	parameters  in
       curly braces.  Example:

	   debug {
	       level warn
	       dump /var/tmp
	       log syslog
	       trace 100

       Line breaks can be inserted in atmsigd.conf wherever spaces or tabs are
       allowed. Everything between a `#' and the end of the line is considered
       a comment. The `#' character cannot be escaped.

       If  an option is specified in atmsigd.conf and on the command line, the
       command line has priority.

       Certain options used by past versions of atmsigd but  no	 longer	 docu‐
       mented  on  the	man  page are still recognized and supported, but they
       also yield a warning message. Future versions of atmsigd will not  rec‐
       ognize those options.
