       genzaptelconf -- generates zaptel configuration (TDM adaptors)


       genzaptelconf [-sdv] [-c <country_code>] [-r |-e <base_exten>] [ -F ]

       genzaptelconf [-sdv] -l -- only list to standard output

       genzaptelconf -su -- only unload zaptel modules

       genzaptelconf -h -- Help screen


       genzaptelconf  is  a  script to detect zaptel devices (currently mostly
       TDM cards  are  supported).  It  generates  both  /etc/zaptel.conf  and

       PRI  and BRI (HFC, with ZapBRI) cards are basically identified as well.
       However the span configiration is a default that I only hope  is  sane.
       Looking for feedback


       -c country_code
              A  two-letter  country  code.  Sets  the  country-code  for  the
              zonezone entries in zaptel.conf , The default is  the  value  of
              lc_country from /etc/default/zaptel and failing that, "us".

              Also try to detect modules. Unloads all zaptel modules and loads
              them one  by  one.  Considers  a  module  useful  if  it  loaded
              successfully and if loading it has generated at least one zapata

              The list  of  detected  modules  is  written  as  the  value  of
              ZAPTEL_MODS in /etc/default/zaptel

       -e base_exten_num
              Configure channel i as extension exten_num + i See also -r

              Disable writing FXS extensions in zapata.conf

              Only  list  deceted  channels  and their signalling. Don’t write
              configuration files. Note, however that -ld will  still  rewrite
              the modules line in /etc/default/zaptel (see -d above).

              Update /etc/modules with a list of our modules, thereby triggers
              their loading via modprobe on the next boot.

              This triggers the -d option as well.

              Try to guess a useful zapata-channels configuration  for  Xorcom
              Rapid .

              Stop  asterisk  for the duration of the test. The detection will
              only work if nobody uses the zaptel channels:

              * To allow unloading of modules

              * to allow reading configuration files.

              By default the script will check  if  asterisk  is  running  and
              alert  if so.  This option tells the script to stop asterisk (if
              it was running) and to try to start it  after  the  end  of  the

              Be  verbose.  lists  the  detected  modules if -d is used. Lists
              detected channls. In the end tries to connect to asterisk to get
              a list of configured zaptel channels.


              The  configuration  file  used  by  ztcfg  to  configure  zaptel
              devices. re-written by genzaptelconf

              When zaptel.conf The original zaptel.conf

              The configuration file of  Asterisk’s  chan_zap.   Not  modified
              directly  by genzaptelconf.  If you want genzaptelconf’s setting
              to  take  effect,  add  the  following  line  at  the   end   of
                     #include "zapata-channels.conf"

              This   is  the  snippet  of  chan_zap  configuration  file  that
              genzaptelconf generates.

              The backup copy of zapata-channels.conf

              This  file  holds  configuration  for  both  genzaptelconf   and
              /etc/init.d/zaptel .  It is sourced by both scripts and can thus
              be used to override settings of variables  from  those  scripts.
              Some of the variables that can be set in /etc/default/zaptel and
              affect genzaptelconf:

                     The default country. Can be also overriden by the  option

                     The base number used for automatic numbering

                     If  set  to ’yes’, no context changes are made in zapata-

                     The context into which calls will go from zaptel  trunks.

                     The  context into which calls will go from zaptel phones.

                     If set to ’yes’, no group settings are  made  in  zapata-

                     The group number for zaptel trunks.

                     The group number for zaptel phones.

                     modules  list.  Used for unloading and modules detection.
                     The order of modules is the same for both.

              modprobe  at  boot  time.  When  the option -d (detect) is used,
              genzaptelconf will write in  this  file  zaptel  modules  to  be
              loaded. If you want to use a different file, set MOD_FILELIST
