APX 8000 - Looking for command to stat users

APX 8000 - Looking for command to stat users

APX 8000 - Looking for command to stat users


I am in the process of turning up / testing the Lucent APX 8000 that is talking H.248 to an SS7 network for incoming call signalling.   I have noticed that if I terminate a call on the NAS using non-ss7 (in-band signalling), the "userstat" command will show me the active user / ip address / etc.

When I terminate a call on the NAS using SS7 (via H.248), the userstat command brings back no active users.  (I do indeed see the user is connected with the modemstat command to verify the modem in-service and also the ip-pools command confirms the IP address was handed out to the incoming user, and of course the user can auth/surf.

I read in the release notes of TAOS 12.0.2 that there was a bug regarding the userstat command.   We just upgraded a test APX 8000 to 14.0.2 (newest load) and the userstat command still gives no results in regards to an H.248 call.

Anybody run into this before?  Is there another command I should be using to view H.248/SS7 calls?

Thanks so much !!

Hi Rainman,

I do not have any answer for your problem.

I´m also using the TAOS 14.0.2 for VoIP, and I´m having some inestability problems regarding the electrical interfaces (E1´s).
Do you maybe have the following manuals?

Physical Interface Configuration Guide 14.0
Multivoice for APX/MAX TNT configuration Guide 14.0

Thanks in advance for your help.

Conexiongroup -

I have the manuals/release notes for rev 12 but do not have anything above it.  One thing I noticed is much of the commands/configuration carries over between the versions, so unless you specifically need something that is only in the 14.0.2 manuals the 12 manuals should work.

Let me know what type of electrical E1 problems you are having I will try to help you. Also please provide an excerpt of the configuration for that E1 interface.

As for my original problem (regarding trying to see H.248 user sessions), I did some more digging and I did manage to find a command to show active H.248 sessions:

ifmgr -d

Shows interfaces and this also does show the H.248 dialup  sessions (lists bif, slot, interface, remote-addr, local-addr).

I'm still rather surprised the "userstat" command does not list the user sessions (especially since it is terminated as a PPP session on the node.)

Let me know if I can help you with anything else on the APX.


RE: APX 8000 - Looking for command to stat users

The problem we have is that all E1 is blocked  as causes of  an internal error according to the log.. The command - Open Slot - that we usually use to start session with slot card that has a E1 card as a result of the blocking is useless. Send me a feedback to my e-mail (jose.rivelli@conexiongroup.com ) so I could send you all the manuals of  the TAOS 14.0.2 we have.    

Thanks a lot.

Jose R.
