What does slot number "<50-50>" refer to?

When trying to set up a "voice-port" on a 2811 router, for a FXS port (VIC2-2FXS), the IOS gives me a response of:

<50-50> voice interface slot #

when I type in

voice-port ?

I expect the voice-port command to look something like

voice-port 0/0/1

for example. If I try to go along with the IOS, and enter a 50... going step by step to find the next allowable range, I wind up with

voice-port 50/0/1

at which point it gives "Invalid input detected" and points at the "5".

Attempting to just use

voice-port 1/0/0

voice-port 0/2/0

etc, just gives errors (Invalid input detected) with the initial number (0 or 1)

The same thing happens if I go into a pots dial-peer and try to use the port command. Any ideas what the IOS is looking for when it says my allowable range for slots is <50-50>?

Re: What does slot number "<50-50>" refer to?

I'll answer my own question... it appears that "50" is the slot ID given to ephones... it's a virtual/logical ID for eFXS.

Doesn't help me though, cause my real live VIC based FXS ports (VIC2-2FXS) aren't configurable since port and voice-port commands aren't accepting the real slot ID's.

Maybe voice-card? I've got voice-card 0 in the config, but it will not allow voice-card 1 or voice-card 2, though IOS seems to think those would be legal entries.
