NAME

       solterm - An IPMI Serial over LAN program

SYNOPSIS

       solterm

       <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]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       <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.

       -notencrypted
              Do not encrypt the SOL data going over the connection.

       -notauthenticated
              Do not do integrity checks on the SOL data going over the connection.

       -bitrate
              Set the bitrate to the given value.  The default is whatever the BMC has set it to.

       -alerts
              This specifies what to do if a alert that requires a callout occurs on the line.

              succeed
                     specifies that serial/modem alerts are to succeed while SoL is active.

              deferred
                     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.

       -holdoff
              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.
