Transport channel name

Name of the SIP container inbound transport channel.

The name field cannot contain the following characters: # \ / , : ; " * ? < > | = + & % '

This name must be unique across all channels in a WAS environment. For example, a SIP container transport channel and a TCP transport channel cannot have the same name if they reside within the same system.

Information Value
Default UDP_(n) where (n) represents the number of instances of this channel in the system

Discrimination weight

Priority this channel has in relation to the other channels in this transport chain. This property is only used when port sharing is enabled and the channel chain includes multiple channels to which it might forward data. The channel in the chain with the lowest discrimination weight is the first one given the opportunity to look at incoming data and determine whether or not it owns that data.

Information Value
Data type Positive integer
Default 10
