CDR / SMDR Data

How to send CDR billing via TCP/IP to a Linux/Unix or Windows host? by kerchak
Posted: 20 Oct 03 (Edited 22 Feb 05)

This configuration was tested on Software Load: R011i.03.0.526.5 and Software Load: R012i.01.1.414.1, so, keep in mind it may not work under previous or later versions (or even any other version!).

Definity:

  (add an entry for your billing linux host)
  CHANGE NODE-NAMES IP
    LINUX-HOST 192.168.0.50

  (point your box which host and port it should send billing)
  CHANGE IP-SERVICES
    CDR1 C-LAN LINUX-HOST 50000

  (tell your box how to generate CDR there)
  CHANGE SYSTEM-PARAMETERS CDR
    (page-1)
      Primary Output Format: customized
      Primary Output Endpoint: CDR1
    (page-2)
      1: date
      2: space
      3: time
      4: space
      5: sec-dur
      6: space
      7: clg-num/in-tac
      8: space
      9: in-trk-code
     10: space
     11: dialed-num
     12: space
     13: code-used
     14: return
     15: line-feed

On Linux/Unix hosts:

(catch the feed from your Definity box)
$ netcat -l -p 50000 >> my-billing.txt &

(watch while your billing grows)
$ tail -f my-billing.txt

(If your Linux or Unix dont already have the Netcat utility, you can download it from (*) http://www.securityfocus.com/data/tools/nc110.tgz)

On Windows hosts:

(catch the feed from your box)
$ nc -l -p 50000 -d >> my-billing.txt

(Netcat for Windows systems can be downloaded from (*) http://www.securityfocus.com/data/tools/nc11nt.zip)


NOTE: I noticed the ocasional generation of some nasty ^@^@^@ characters. Until now I have not found a way to stop generating them, so, I'm just filtering them out in Linux itself, with cat my-billing.txt | tr -d '\0' > my-billing-beauty.txt.

(*) Thanks to manfmmd for the updated netcat links.
