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.

Debian GNU/Linux system (but may be used by others).
