Mapping powerpath storage interface # to XtremIO FC port

When viewing XIO connections in PowerPath, how can I determine which XIO port is being referenced.

Example below, how do I map Interface 41, 11, 62, to the actual FC ports on the array?

Pseudo name=harddisk25

XtremIO ID=APM00144623846

Logical device ID=514F0C5359800083 [T_Data.snapshot.1461449014]

state=alive; policy=ADaptive; queued-IOs=0

This seems to be an older version of PowerPath.

6.0 or later will show the friendly port names.

There are 4 (possible) targets ports per node (2 fc, 2 iscsi).

The port number is: (node_index -1)*10 + (1,2,5,6) (where 1,2 are the fc targets, 5,6 are the iscsi).

For example, node1 targets will be (1,2,5,6). Node2 targets will be (0xb, 0xc,  0xf, 0x10) and so on.
