Are you referring to Servers.Ports table for Emerald? That field is
practically irrelevant, excpt for when creating/re-ported a NAS. The
most important fields, Calls.NASPort and ServerPorts.Port, are both
type integer.

I would guess hope that it would correctly align the numbers. For
example, 1001 for 10/1 and 101 for 1/1, etc. Then there shouldn't
be an issue. If not, there isn't anything you can do about it.

USR, err, 3Com, has such a looser site. I've never been able to
find the technical information I needed (plenty of marketing, but
nada for support. Just search for "RADIUS" on their FAQ search
and you'll get a whole two entries returned!) on their website.
Trying to download the documentation is even worse, since they only
let "privledged" people get to that. Geeze.

Ok. Off my soap box. Try running a query like this against
your calls table to see what kind of ports are being recorded.
Send me the list and I'll try to make something of it.
