NAME

       cyclades-devices - tables for driving cyclades-serial-client

DESCRIPTION

       The  cyclades-devices  file  supplies  all  mapping between Unix device
       files (/dev/*) and the addresses of serial ports of  Cyclades  Terminal
       Servers. It contains one entry for each serial port, with the following
       format:

       device:rastype:rasname:physport:type:options

       Note: A # character at beginning of line indicates a comment

       The entry fields are:

       devname
              - A full pathname of the file that will  be  associated  to  the
              serial  port. It must start with  a "/dev/" preffix.  Two naming
              schemes may be used here: - devname does not exist, and will  be
              linked  to  a  free  pseudo-tty. This is the default behavior of
              cyclades-ser-cli.  - devname  is  the  name  of  a  valid  slave
              pseudo-tty.  In this case, the ’-t 1’ option must be assigned in
              options field.  (Note: this option  is  not  supported  by  this
              release).

       rastype
              -  Terminal Server type: - prts, for Cyclades Pr302X/TS Terminal
              Servers.  - path, for Cyclades PathRAS Terminal Server.

       rasname
              - Host Name or IP Address  of  the  Terminal  Server  where  the
              serial port resides.

       physport
              -  Number of physical port in the Terminal Server. If treated as
              the  IP  address  associated  with  this  port,  in  a  IP-based
              addressing scheme.

       type   -  Server type that will be contacted to handle the serial port:
              - rtelnet, for Remote Telnet Server - socket, for Socket Server

       options
              - Per-port specific options, passed to cyclades-ser-cli program.

EXAMPLES

       1.  Device on a PR3020/TS Terminal Server pr3k Port 1, accessed through
       /dev/ctty01 device file name,  using  telnet  protocol  (remote  telnet
       server)

       /dev/ctty01:prts:pr3k:1:rtelnet:

       2. The same device, but with an IP address pr3k_port1 associated to the
       serial port (IP-based port addressing)

       /dev/ctty01:prts:pr3k_port1:0:rtelnet:

       3. Device on a PathRAS Terminal Server pr3k Port  2,  accessed  through
       /dev/ctty02 device file name, using socket protocol (socket server)

       /dev/ctty02:path:pr3k:2:socket:
