NAME

       avmcapictrl - Add, reset or remove active AVM cards and load firmware

SYNOPSIS

       avmcapictrl add <portbase> <irq> <type>
       avmcapictrl load <bootcode> [<contrnr> [<protocol>
           [P2P | <dn1>:<spid1> [<dn2>:<spid2>]]]]
       avmcapictrl reset [contrnr]
       avmcapictrl remove [contrnr]
       avmcapictrl trace [contrnr] [off|short|on|full|shortnodata|nodata]
       avmcapictrl addcard <driver> <portbase> <irq> [ <membase> [ <cardnr> ] ]

DESCRIPTION

       avmcapictrl  is  used  to register active AVM ISA cards kernelcapi system and therewith to
       the isdn system. You need it also to upload the firmware to any active  AVM  card.  If  an
       error occure please also check the kernel error messages by using the command dmesg(8).

COMMANDS

       add <portbase> <irq> <type>
            is  used  to  add a ISA card to the kernel-capi2.0 system.  The portbase can have the
            values 0x150, 0x250, 0x300 and 0x340 for the B1 ISA cards, look at the jumper on  the
            card.  For a T1-ISA (HEMA) card you can select an wide range of ports.
            irq can be selected from the following values:
            3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 15.
            type can be B1 or T1.

       load <bootcode> [<contrnr> [<protocol>
            [P2P  |  <dn1>:<spid1>  [<dn2>:<spid2>]]]]  is  used  to  load the firmware to a card
            bootcode is a t4-file. The actual versions of  the  t4-files  for  the  different  d-
            channel protocols can be found at ftp://ftp.avm.de/cardware/b1/linux/firmware.
            You  need  different t4-files for different d channel protocols: b1-1tr6.t4 for 1TR6,
            b1.t4 for DSS1 and
            b1-usa.t4 for 5ESS and NI1 (DSS1 is also supported).
            For M1/M2 PCMCIA cards you need m1-s10.t4 or m1-s4.t4 depending  on  the  handy  type
            used.
            contrnr is the number of the controller (card) starting from 1.
            protocol can be DSS1, CT1, VN3, AUSTEL, 5ESS or NI1.
            P2P point to point
            DN1:SPID1 DN2:SPID2 is for the american protocols 5ESS and NI1.

       reset [contrnr]
            is used to reset a card if loading has failed.  This function only make sence if card
            is not successfully loaded.
            contrnr is the number of the controller (card) starting from 1.

       remove [contrnr]
            is used to remove a card previous added. You can also remove  automatic  added  cards
            (for example a B1-PCI card).
            contrnr is the number of the controller (card) starting from 1.

       trace [contrnr] [off|short|on|full|shortnodata|nodata]
            is  used  to  trace  CAPI2.0 messages. The trace will be done as kernel messages, see
            dmesg(8).
            contrnr is the number of the controller (card) starting from 1.
            off switch traceing off
            short switch one line per CAPI2.0 message tracing on
            on | full switch on full decode tracing
            shortnodata switch on line per CAPI2.0 message tracing on,  but  exclude  DATA_B3_IND
            and DATA_B3_REQ messages.
            on  |  full  switch  on  full decode tracing, but exclude DATA_B3_IND and DATA_B3_REQ
            messages.

       addcard <driver> <portbase> <irq> [ <membase> [ <cardnr> ] ]
            is used to add a card, this is more generic than add.
            driver currently b1isa or t1isa
            portbase can have the values 0x150, 0x250, 0x300 and 0x340 for the b1isa driver, look
            at the jumper on the card.  For t1isa driver you can select an wide range of ports.
            irq can be selected from the following values: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 15.
            membase memory address if needed by driver
            cardnr only usefull with driver t1isa
