PAD Subaddress Formatting Option


Prior to Cisco IOS Release 12.3(2)T, packet assembler/disassembler (PAD) Subaddressing specifies a two-digit field for subaddressing that requires a leading zero for subaddress values of nine or lower (0-9). The PAD Subaddress Formatting Option feature introduces the ability to suppress the leading zero for subaddresses with a value of nine or lower. This suppression occurs before the subaddress field is appended to the calling address. This feature increases compatibility with X.25 host systems that use single-digit subaddresses.

Prerequisites for PAD Subaddress Formatting Option

PAD must be configured. For more information on configuring PAD, refer to Configuring the Cisco PAD Facility for X.25 Connections.

Restrictions for PAD Subaddress Formatting Option

X.25 subaddresses in the range from 1 to 99 are tied to rotary groups and can be only two digits in length.

The PAD Subaddress Formatting Option feature is available for the following line types:

CON

AUX

TTY

VTY

The PAD Subaddress Formatting Option feature is supported for the following connection types:

PAD

X28

PT

Information About PAD Subaddress Formatting Option

To configure the PAD Subaddress Formatting Option feature, you must understand the following concepts:

PAD Subaddress Values

Benefits of the PAD Subaddress Formatting Option

PAD Subaddress Values

PAD subaddressing enables an X.25 host application to uniquely identify the source of an X.121 call. In some situations, the X.121 calling address alone is not sufficient to identify the source of the call. PAD subaddressing allows you to create unique X.121 calling addresses by including either a physical port number or an explicit value to be specified for a line as a subaddress to the X.121 calling address.

The PAD Subaddress Formatting Option feature introduces the option to exclude the leading zero from PAD subaddress with a value of nine or lower (0-9). This option affects only the formatting of the PAD subaddress, not the value of the PAD subaddress. The PAD subaddress 02 has exactly the same value as the PAD subaddress 2.

A single Cisco router can be configured to generate PAD subaddresses with and without leading zeros on different lines or sets of lines.

Benefits of the PAD Subaddress Formatting Option

This feature increases compatibility with X.25 host systems that use single-digit subaddresses.

How to Configure PAD Subaddress Formatting Option

This section contains the following procedure:

Configuring the PAD Subaddress Formatting Option (required)

Configuring the PAD Subaddress Formatting Option

This task configures a set of lines to suppress the leading zero for subaddresses with a value of nine or lower (0-9).

SUMMARY STEPS

1. enable

2. configure terminal

3. line [aux | console | tty | vty] line-number [ending-line-number]

4. x25 subaddress {line | number} [no-zero-pad]

DETAILED STEPS

 
Command or Action
Purpose

Step 1 

enable

Example:

Router> enable

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

Enter your password if prompted.

Step 2 

configure terminal

Example:

Router# configure terminal

Enters global configuration mode.

Step 3 

line [aux | console | tty | vty] line-number [ending-line-number]

Example:

Router(config)# line vty 1 9

Enters line configuration mode and identifies a specific line or set of lines for configuration.

Step 4 

x25 subaddress {line | number} [no-zero-pad]

Example:

Router(config-line)# x25 subaddress 6 no-zero-pad

Appends either a physical port number or a value specified for a line as a subaddress to the X.121 calling address.

no-zero-pad—Specifies that a leading zero should not be appended to subaddresses with a value of nine or lower (0-9).

Configuration Examples for PAD Subaddress Formatting Option

This section contains the following configuration examples:

Configuring the PAD Subaddress Formatting Option Example

Verifying Configuration of the PAD Subaddress Formatting Option Example

Configuring the PAD Subaddress Formatting Option Example

The following example configures a subaddress of 6 for a set of vty lines, and specifies that a leading zero should not be appended to the subaddress value:

Router(config)# line vty 0 9
Router(config-line)# x25 subaddress 6 no-zero-pad

Verifying Configuration of the PAD Subaddress Formatting Option Example

To verify the configuration of the PAD Subaddress Formatting Option, enter the show line command as shown in the following example:

Router# show line vty 0
