NAME

       rigd - Hamlib rig service daemon

SYNOPSIS

       rpc.rigd [OPTION]...

DESCRIPTION

       The  rigd  program  is  a  Hamlib rig daemon that handles RPC client requests. This allows
       multiple user programs to share one radio.  At this time multiple  radio  support  is  not
       available (help needed!).

       Keep  in  mind  that Hamlib is BETA level software.  While a lot of backend libraries lack
       complete rig support, the basic functions are usually well supported.  The API may  change
       without publicized notice, while an advancement of the minor version (e.g. 1.1.x to 1.2.x)
       indicates such a change.

       Please report bugs and provide feedback at the e-mail address given in the REPORTING  BUGS
       section.  Patches and code enhancements are also welcome.

OPTIONS

       This  program  follows  the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
       two dashes (`-').

       Here is a summary of the supported options:

       -m, --model=id
              Select radio model number. See rig model list (use 'rigctl -l').
              NB: rigctl (or third party software) will use rig model 1901 when using rigd.

       -r, --rig-file=device
              Use device as the file name of the port the radio is  connected.   Often  a  serial
              port,  but  could  be  a  USB to serial adapter.  Typically /dev/ttyS0, /dev/ttyS1,
              /dev/ttyUSB0, etc.

       -p, --ptt-file=device
              Use device as the file name of the Push-To-Talk  device  using  a  device  file  as
              described above.

       -d, --dcd-file=device
              Use  device  as the file name of the Data Carrier Detect device using a device file
              as described above.

       -p, --ptt-type=type
              Use type of Push-To-Talk device.  Supported types  are  RIG,  DTR,  RTS,  PARALLEL,
              NONE.

       -d, --dcd-type=type
              Use  type  of  Data  Carrier Detect device.  Supported types are RIG, DSR, CTS, CD,
              PARALLEL, NONE.

       -s, --serial-speed=baud
              Set serial speed  to  baud  rate.  Uses  maximum  serial  speed  from  rig  backend
              capabilities as the default.

       -c, --civaddr=id
              Use id as the CI-V address to communicate with the rig. Only useful for Icom rigs.
              NB:  the  id  is  in  decimal  notation, unless prefixed by 0x, in which case it is
              hexadecimal.

       -C, --set-conf=parm=val[,parm=val]*
              Set config parameter.  e.g. stop_bits=2
              Use -L option of rigctl for a list.

       -t, --prog=number
              Use number as the RPC program number. The default is 536871065.

       -v, --verbose
              Set verbose mode, cumulative (see DIAGNOSTICS below).

       -h, --help
              Show a summary of these options and exit.

       -V, --version
              Show the version of rigd and exit.

       Please note that the backend for the radio to be controlled, or the radio itself  may  not
       support some commands. In that case, the operation will fail with a Hamlib error code.

EXAMPLES

       Start rigd as root for a Yaesu FT-920 using a USB to serial adapter and backgrounding:

       # rpc.rigd -m 114 -r /dev/ttyUSB1 &

       Start rigd as root for a Yaesu FT-920 using COM1 while generating TRACE output:

       # rpc.rigd -m 114 -r /dev/ttyS0 -vvvvv

       Start  rigd  as  root  for a Yaesu FT-920 using a USB to serial adapter while setting baud
       rate and stop bits and backgrounding:

       # rpc.rigd -m 114 -r /dev/ttyUSB1 -s 4800 -C stop_bits=2 &

DIAGNOSTICS

       The -v, --version option allows different levels of diagnostics to be output to stderr and
       correspond  to  -v  for  BUG, -vv for ERR, -vvv for WARN, -vvvv for VERBOSE, or -vvvvv for
       TRACE.

       A given verbose level is useful for providing needed debugging information  to  the  email
       address  below.   For  example,  TRACE output shows all of the values sent to and received
       from the radio which is very useful for radio  backend  library  development  and  may  be
       requested by the developers.

SECURITY

       No  authentication  whatsoever;  could be done through domain restriction, though.  Please
       ask if stronger security is needed.

BUGS

       Does not support more than one rig that share the same serial port (e.g. Icom radios on  a
       CI-V bus).

       Does  not  support more than one communication device for multiple rig control.  (e.g. for
       Single Operator 2 Radio)  Help needed!
