New Flexible Code Restriction
NFCR controls the access of Toll Denied (TLD, CTD, CUN) stations and trunks to outgoing routes, based on the specific digit sequence dialed. This is useful for blocking certain digit strings (or area codes) when the route access code (ACOD) is used, assuming that TGAR has allowed access in the first place.
NFCR and Class of Service (CLS):
|CTD, CUN||NFCR restrictions do not apply for BARS, NARS, CDP or ANI type calls.
NFCR applies only on direct trunk access code (ACOD) type calls.
|TLD||Users are always affected no matter how their call is dialed.|
The FRL associated with the users NCOS is used to determine which codes are allowed or denied.
Stations are by default Conditionally Toll Denied (CTD). See also CLS Access Restrictions.
- A digit string list (CRNO) for each FRL level is set for a route in LD 16
- Initially, in each CRNO, all codes are either allowed or denied (INIT ALOW / DENY)
- Specific digit string exceptions (codes) are then allowed (or denied) as required in LD 49
LD 21, print FCR (FCR_DATA) to see is NCFR is enabled (default is disabled) - change FCR in LD 15.

The FRL normally controls access to an RLI entry: FRL 0 is the most restrictive, 7 is the least restrictive and can access more entries. For a toll denied set dialing an ACOD, with NFCR YES, the FRL controls which code restriction tree is referenced for route access.

LD 16, in the Route Data Block, an NFCR tree number (CRNO) is assigned to each Facility Restriction Level (FRL).
Scroll down to the FRL section, near the bottom of the RDB block to see the CRNO assignments. Default is 0:
: FRL 0 0 sets with FRL 0 will reference CRNO 0 FRL 1 1 " " FRL 1 " " CRNO 1 FRL 2 2 " " FRL 2 " " CRNO 2 FRL 3 0 ... etc FRL 4 0 FRL 5 0 FRL 6 0 FRL 7 0 :
Use LD 49 to administer, and print, code restriction trees and digit string (NFCR) data.
Any digit sequences is initially (INIT) ALOWed or DENYed
Exceptions can be: DENY / ALOW / or BYPS (exceptions make the rule!)
- ALOW or DENY define a specific digit sequence to allow or block
- BYPS defines a digit sequence to bypass, though following digits may be blocked.

LD 49 is also used for Incoming Digit Conversion.
