       xdmf2ncid - XDMF	Caller ID to NCID gateway

       The xdmf2ncid gateway obtains Caller ID and messages from an SDMF or
       MDMF USB	device (or modem) and sends the	information to the NCID
       server. The server then sends the CID information to the	NCID clients.

       The USB port is set to 1200 baud	with 1 start bit, 8 data bits, 1 stop
       bit and no parity.

       The gateway uses	the USB	port as	the default line identifier, for
       example ttyUSB0.

       The line	identifier can be aliased by the NCID server so	you can	give
       each phone line a meaningful identification such	as  the	last 4 digits
       of the phone number.  For example: 1234.	 You can even use the complete
       phone number if you desire.

       The configuration file is /usr/local/etc/ncid/xdmf2ncid.conf.  See the
       xdmf2ncid.conf man page for more	details.

       The xdmf2ncid gateway can run on	any computer, but normally it is run
       on the same box as the NCID server.  If it is not run on	the same box
       as the NCID server, you must configure the server IP address in the
       configuration file.

       Perl 5.6	or higher, perl(Config::Simple)

       The NCID	server

       Either one of the following:

       CTI Comet USB Caller ID

	   configured for Caller ID by setting AT+VCID=2

       Holtek HT9032D based PSTN Caller	ID module with required	USB adapter

	   USB to UART TTL cable adapter for PC	connection

       Possibly	other Type I Caller ID devices using the HT9032

       -C, --configfile	<filename>
	 Specifies the configuration file to use.  The program will still run
	 if a configuration file is not	found.


       -D, --debug
	 Debug mode, displays all messages that	go into	the log	file.  Use
	 this option to	run interactively.

       -d <seconds>, --delay <seconds>
	 If the	connection to the NCID server is lost, try every <delay>
	 seconds to reconnect.

	 Default: 15

       -h, --help
	 Displays the help message and exits.

       -H <0|1>, --hostname-flag <0|1>
	 When the hostname flag	is set to 1, the IDENT string sent to a	server
	 will include the hostname with	the program name.

	 Default: 0

       -I <0|1>, --ht9032-ic <0|1>
	 Set to	0 for input from either	the CTI	Comet USB or modem, or set to
	 1 for input from the Holtek HT9032D based PSTN	Caller ID module or
	 possibly other	devices	based on the Holtek HT9032 IC.

	 Default: 0

       -l, --logfile-append <filename>
       -L, --logfile-overwrite <filename>
	 Specifies the logfile name to write.  The program will	still run if
	 it does not have permission to	write to it.

	 If both options are present, --logfile-append takes precedence.

	 Default: Append to /var/log/xdmf2ncid.log

       -m, --man
	 Displays the manual page and exits.

       -n <[host][:port]>, --ncidhost <[host][:port]>
	 Specifies the NCID server.  Port may be specified by suffixing	the
	 hostname with :<port>.

	 Input must be <host> or <host:port>, or <:port>

	 Default:  localhost:3333

       -p, --pidfile <filename>
	 Specifies the pidfile name to write. The program will still run if it
	 does not have permission to write a pidfile. The pid filename that
	 should	be used	is /var/run/

	 Default: no pidfile

	 Provides a more structured, decoded output for	debugging and
	 development purposes. Output is in the	form of	perl comment lines,
	 suitable for insertion	into

       -t, --test
	 Test mode is a	connection of the SDMF or MDMF USB Caller ID device to
	 the gateway without a connection to the NCID server.  It sets debug
	 mode and verbose = 3.	The verbose level can be changed on the
	 command line.

	 Default: no test mode

       -u <USB port>, --usbport	<USB port>
	 Specifies the USB port	to listen on for messages from an XDMF device.

	 Default "/dev/ttyUSB0"

       -v, --verbose <1-9>
	 Output	information, used for the logfile and the debug	option.	 Set
	 the level to a	higher number for more information.  Levels range from
	 1 to 9, but not all levels are	used.

	 Default: verbose = 1

       -V, --version
	 Displays the version.

       Start xdmf2ncid in test mode at verbose level 3
	   xdmf2ncid --test

       Start xdmf2ncid in debug	mode at	verbose	level 1
	   xdmf2ncid -D


       xdmf2ncid.conf.5, ncidd.8, ncidd.conf.5,	ncid_gateways.7
