       ttysrv - connect to a serial port and log output


       ttysrv  [-o  option]  [-s  sock]  [-l  log] -t tty [-b baud] [-p parity] [-w wordsize] [-i


       ttysrv is the backend for rconsole.  It connects to the serial port, handles the log  file
       and waits for connections from rconsole to view what's happening on the serial console.


       -t tty Specify which device to connect to.

       -s sock
              The name of the socket to listen for connections from rconsole on.

       -o option
              Specify  any  ttyios  options  to  open  the  port  with. Currently only nolocal is

       -l log The logfile to write to. If not set then no log is kept.

       -b baud
              Set the baud rate to talk to the port at. Defaults to 9600.

       -p parity
              Set the parity for the serial port. Defaults to none.

       -w wordsize
              Set the word size for the serial port. Defaults to 8 bits.

       -i pidfile
              The file to write the pid of ttysrv to. If not specified no such file is written.
