NAME

       solterm - An IPMI Serial over LAN program

SYNOPSIS

       solterm

       <connection parms> [-e escape_char] [-notencrypted] [-notauthenticated]
       [-bitrate           (9600|19200|38400|57600|115200)]           [-alerts
       (succeed|defer|fail)]   [-holdoff]   [-ack-retries   n]   [-ack-timeout
       microseconds] [-v] [-q]

DESCRIPTION

       The solterm program allows a user to make a  remote  serial  connection
       over IPMI.  The requires that the remote system support IPMI 2.0 Serial
       Over LAN.

OPTIONS

       <connection parms>
              The parameters for the connection depend on the connection type.
              These are all described in openipmi_conparms (7)

       -e escape_char
              The  character to use to escape, or exit, the program.  Entering
              this chatacter right after  a  newline  is  entered  causes  the
              program  to go into command mode.  A single character after this
              performs a command.  The default  escape  character  is  "~"  as
              shown below.  Suppported commands are:

              ~.     Terminate the program

              ~B     Send a serial BREAK over the connection

              ~F     Flush all buffers

              ~R     Assert the Ring Indicator (RI) line

              ~r     Deassert the Ring Indicator (RI) line

              ~D     Assert DCD and DSR lines

              ~d     Deassert DCD and DSR lines

              ~C     Pause the output using CTS

              ~c     Put CTS under BMC control

              ~?     Help on escape commands

              ~~     Enter the escape character twice to send it.

       -notencrypted
              Do not encrypt the SOL data going over the connection.

       -notauthenticated
              Do  not  do  integrity  checks  on  the  SOL data going over the
              connection.

       -bitrate
              Set the bitrate to the given value.  The default is whatever the
              BMC has set it to.

       -alerts
              This  specifies  what  to  do if a alert that requires a callout
              occurs on the line.

              succeed
                     specifies that serial/modem alerts are to  succeed  while
                     SoL is active.

              deferred
                     specifies that serial/modem alerts are to be deferred for
                     the duration of the SoL session.

              fail   specifies that  serial/modem  alerts  automatically  fail
                     during the SoL session. This is the default.

       -holdoff
              Specifies  that  CTS,  DTR,  and DSR are to be deasserted at the
              start of the SoL  session  so  that  the  configuration  may  be
              modifeid before the handshake is released.

       -v     Be more verbose.  Maybe specified multiple time for more output.

       -q     Be less verbose.  Maybe specified multiple time for less output.
