       solterm - An IPMI Serial over LAN program



       <connection   parms>   [-e   escape_char]  [-notencrypted]  [-notauthenticated]  [-bitrate
       (9600|19200|38400|57600|115200)] [-alerts (succeed|defer|fail)]  [-holdoff]  [-ack-retries
       n] [-ack-timeout microseconds] [-v] [-q]


       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 connection.

              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.
