It should be Filter-ID = "filtername". If the USR is like the PM
(its based on an old ComOS) then it will add the .in and .out
extensions when it looks for in/out. You only specify ONE filter
in the attribute.

Bu what is the DIFFERENCE between the to? I've tried to explain that numbers
are what count. The names are in-significant. Are they both 64, and
one is a number and one is a string?

Filters are vendor implementation specific. USR and PMs do it one way,
Ascend like normal does it a proprietary way, and Cisco yet another.
