Configuring xportal

The XPortal Server application is xportal. It should be loaded in the PXS flash memory and defined as default application. See "Updating Software" in the LayGO PXS - Protocol eXchange Server manual if you need to download xportal to the PXS and use the RedBoot default command, if necessary.

The XPortal Server is configured using a combination of a LayGO .cfg file stored in flash memory and optional command line parameters set using the RedBoot options command. LayGO .cfg file contains all the configuration options related to the X.21 bis, HDLC LAPB and X.25 protocols. See LayGO Configuration for details.

Command Line Options

The xportal server supports the following command line options:


  Do not autostart the server. The server will be started maually using
  the PXS control application.
  Default: Autostart the server

[-f <cfg file>]

  LayGO cfg file.
  Default: xportal-dte.cfg


  Use static X.25 call request data.  If -x is present, it
  contains the static data.  Otherwise, use default static data.
  Default: Do not use static X.25 call request data

[-x <xcl file>]

  LayGO X.25 call setup data file containing X.25 call
  request data.
  Default: <none>


  Enable line 1 as well as line 0.
  Default: Disabled

If the xportal server is configured for SVCs only, the -s option may be used to specify that clients will not explicitly request an X.25 connection. Instead, the server will initiate the X.25 connection using whatever call request data is read from the file specified with the -x option. If no file is specified, default call request data will be used (0 length called and calling DTE addresses and no facilities).

If the xportal server is configured for both PVCs and SVCs, the -s option may not be used. Clients must explicitly request an SVC or PVC. In this case, the -x option can still be used to indicate the call request data that should be used for clients requesting an SVC with 0 length call data.
