When the NaturalAccess Signaling Software is installed, an installation script uses the
bus and slot information provided by pcigetcfg to determine the entries to place in
the cpcfg script executed at board boot time.
Note: The output of pcigetcfg is designed to assist the installation script rather than
to provide well-formatted screen output. Use txcpcfg instead of pcigetcfg to view the
PCI bus and slot information for all detected TX boards.
Viewing a list of installed TX boards: cpmodel
Use cpmodel to display a list of TX boards that are currently known to the system.
Each board is listed with a CP (communications processor) number that is used by all

Receiving data traces from TX based tasks: ss7trace
Use ss7trace when monitoring or troubleshooting SS7 signaling.
Purpose
Displays any debug data tracing that is turned on (through the layer's manager
program or initial configuration) in the MTP, ISUP, M3UA, or SCTP tasks or in the TX
operating system [Ethernet tracing]. It does not accept commands; it only displays
the tracing.
Using ss7trace
Enter the following command to start ss7trace:
ss7trace
The utility returns the following information:

MTP/ISUP sample trace output
The following sample shows the output generated for a single packet received
followed by a single packet transmitted when both MTP and ISUP layer tracing is
enabled. Note that these are hexadecimal dumps of the actual packets sent and
received, so familiarity with the detailed encodings of a given layer's packets is
required to decode the trace data. The packets in this example were collected from
an ANSI configuration; therefore, the packet contents (for example, the point code
length in the routing label) for ITU or Japan protocol variants will be different.

3
Use the ? command to view all commands in the current command set.
4
To change to a different board number, use the command cp boardnum, where boardnum is a
valid TX board number. Use the cp ? command to determine the board number currently in use.
5
To cause cpcon_ to process an input script from the cpcon_ prompt, use the < command:
(1) [con] > < myscript
This causes cpcon_ to read the file that is named myscript in the current working directory
(where cpcon_ was executed from) and to perform each line-read from the script as if those
commands were typed in manually.
Other input script control commands are:
< ? = Displays name of the current input script.
< ! = Cancels the current input script.
pause = Temporarily pauses input script processing.
resume = Ready for input script processing to continue.
6
To cause cpcon_ to begin forking output to an output file on the local system, use the >
command:
(1) [con] > > myoutfile
Other commands are:
> ! = Stops outputting to a file.
> ? = Determines whether currently outputting to a file.

The example shows that 5128 DHCP packets were transmitted with no DHCP packets
received. There were 5128 UDP packets transmitted (each DHCP packet is
transmitted as a UDP packet). This example also shows that there were 5128 UDP
receive errors. The last error code associated with a UDP receive error is listed in the
RX Last column as 0x1C00001C. The RX Last and TX Last columns hold the last error
code encountered by the given layer (either for receive or transmit handling). Use
the txccode utility to obtain a text description of the error code.
In this case, txccode outputs the following information:
txccode 0x1c00001c
SCCIP_NO_PORT_RX_ROUTE - no route for received protocol-specific port number
Refer to Viewing completion code descriptions: txccode on page 30 for more

Information similar to the statistical summary displays with the addition of RX
LastInfo and TX LastInfo. These additional values provide information that is specific
to the LastReason error code. For the SCCIP_NO_PORT_RX_ROUTE error code, RX
LastInfo holds the specific UDP port number where the last received UDP packet was
destined.
LastInfo is a hexadecimal value regardless of the meaning of the field. Since UDP
port numbers are presented in decimal format, you must convert the LastInfo fields
to decimal, for example, 0x43 = 67. Therefore, the last received unroutable UDP
packet had a destination UDP port number of 67.

TDM pattern test commands
Use the following [t81] commands to verify TDM (H.100/H.110 or T1/E1
connectivity) between two TX boards:
Command
Description
check
Checks received patterns across a stream range using the following syntax:
check bus min stream [max stream [ts delta [pattern]]]
reflect
Reflects timeslots across a stream range using the following syntax:
reflect bus min stream [max stream [ts delta]]
spread
Spreads patterns across a stream range using the following syntax:
spread bus min stream [max stream [ts delta [pattern]]]
vreflect
Verifies CAM definitions (reflecting timeslots) using the following syntax:
vreflect bus min stream [max stream [ts delta]]
vspread
Verifies CAM definitions (spreading patterns) using the following syntax:
vspread bus min stream [max stream [ts delta [pattern]]]
The following parameters apply to each command:
Parameter
Description
bus
Valid values:
H = H.100/H.110 bus (resource direction).
N = H.100/H.110 bus (network direction).
L = LOCAL bus.
min stream
Minimum stream number (paired with min+1 for H.100/H.110 bus).
max stream
Maximum stream number (paired with max-1 for H.100/H.110 bus). Default: min
stream+1.
ts delta
Delta used to reach next timeslot. Default: 1.
Note: Each time the stream is incremented (by 2), the next timeslot is reset to 0.
pattern
Constant pattern to send or expect. If not specified, then a range of patterns is
used.
Follow this procedure to use the pattern test commands:
Step
Action
1
Connect two TX boards with either an H.100/H.110 cable or a T1/E1 crossover cable.
2
Download a TDM configuration file to each board specifying TDM clocking configuration (and T1
or E1 configuration if testing T1/E1).
3
On one TX board, use the reflect command to define a set of connections that reflect patterns
received over H.100/H.110 (or T1/E1) and transmitted over H.100/H.110 (or T1/E1).
4
On the other board, use the spread command to spread a set of outbound patterns over the
interface being tested.
5
Use the check command on the same TX board that the spread command was entered on to
verify that the proper reflected patterns are received.
6
Use the vreflect and vspread commands to verify that all connections made using the
corresponding command (reflect or spread) are actually in the TDM switching control database.
