       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.


       <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.

              Do not encrypt the SOL data going over the connection.

              Do  not  do  integrity  checks  on  the  SOL data going over the

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

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

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

                     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.

              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.
