       sredird - RFC 2217 serial port server


       sredird [-i] log-level serial-device lock-file [poll-interval]


       This manual page documents briefly the sredird, program.

       This  program  when  run  through  inetd  will  use  the  RFC 2217 extensions to TELNET to
       implement serial commands over the TCP connection and  interface  to  a  specified  serial


       An optional first parameter is '-i' to enable compatability with Cisco IOS.

       The  first  mandatory  parameter  is  the log level for use in syslog.  The next mandatory
       parameter is the device node for the serial device, it must be  a  fully  qualified  path.
       The  final  mandatory  parameter  is the file name for the lock file to be used to prevent
       multiple instances of sredird from talking to the serial port at  the  same  time,  or  to
       allow sharing a port between modem and sredird.


       Here  is  a  configuration  line  for  running  it from inetd: sredir          stream  tcp
       nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/sredird 5 /dev/modem /var/lock/LCK..modem
