       linesrv - A server to remotely modem/isdn connection


       linesrv [options] files...


       This  manual  page  documents briefly the linesrv command.  This manual
       page was written for the  Debian  GNU/Linux  distribution  because  the
       original  program  does  not  have  a manual page.  This is LineControl
       Server. It is designed to run on a Linux masquerading server which  has
       for example a dial-up line to your ISP to control.

       LC is something similar to masqdialer and other remote control programs
       for network-connections. It is wrote in need of a simple tool for  home
       -  network.   With  LineControl you can use the old scripts you used to
       control your connection manually. So it’s  very  easy  to  switch  from
       telnet :) to LineControl.

       LineControl  needs  a client application on each host using the dial-up
       line. It takes care about the number of  clients  using  the  line  and
       decides  upon  this  value  whether  the  masquerading server should be
       connected to the internet or not.

       Start linesrv as root if you would like to use the pinger.

       Clients are available  for  Win  95/98/NT,  Linux  (console,  gtk)  and
       there’s a Java client too.

       LineControl  uses /dev/isdninfo to determine the connection-status.  If
       you’re not interested in the ISDN options or want  to  use  LineControl
       with  the  normal  pppd  so  set ’con_type netdev’ instead of ’con_type
       isdn’ or use the ’con_type file’ option.


       -c,    Specify the configuration file to be used.
