       hisaxctrl - configure HiSax-Module


       hisaxctrl DriverId command parameters


       hisaxctrl  is  used  to setup the HiSax-ISDN device driver.  All logging-output is sent to
       the device /dev/isdnctrl. So you can show it by executing cat /dev/isdnctrl.
       NOTE: for  devfs  systems,  the  program  will  automatically  use  /dev/isdn/isdnctrl  if

       The use of hisaxctrl only makes sense if you are using the HiSax driver.


              is  used  to identify the card when using more than one passive card. While loading
              the hisax module with  insmod,  or  modprobe  the  DriverId  is  set  by  appending
              id=idstring1%idstring2%...  to the commandline.

              is  an  integer  selecting the setup category. The following values are defined for
              setting the logging-level of the HiSax-ISDN device driver:

               0 reports card status infos.
               1 selects generic debugging.
              11 selects layer 1 development debugging.
              13 selects layer 3 development debugging.

       the following commands are used to enable special features during runtime  of  the  HiSax-
       ISDN device driver.

               2 set B-channel ON delay to parameter (in ms)
               5 set B-channel in leased mode
               6 set B-channel in TESTLOOP mode
               7 set/reset card in Point To Point mode
               8 set card in FIXED TEI mode
               9 load firmware for DSP cards
              10 set B-channel usage limit to 1 or 2 channels
              12 set echo logging mode (only for some cards)
                 B-channel usage limit needs to be 1 if enabled

              If  the command is 9 then the parameter is the full pathname to the file containing
              the firmware.

              For debug settings this is an integer representing a bitmask.  Every  bit  in  this
              mask  switches  a debug facility on or off. Depending on the selected category, the
              following values are defined:

              With generic debugging selected
              (command 1):

              0x001 Link-level <--> hardware-level communication
              0x002 Top state machine
              0x004 D-Channel Q.931 (call control messages)
              0x008 D-Channel Q.921
              0x010 B-Channel X.75
              0x020 D-Channel l2
              0x040 B-Channel l2
              0x080 D-Channel link state debugging
              0x100 B-Channel link state debugging
              0x200 TEI debug
              0x400 LOCK debug in callc.c
              0x800 More debug in callc.c (not for normal use)

              With layer 1 development debugging selected
              (command 11):

              0x001 Warnings (default: on)
              0x002 IRQ status
              0x004 ISAC
              0x008 ISAC FIFO
              0x010 HSCX
              0x020 HSCX FIFO (attention: full B-Channel output!)
              0x040 D-Channel LAPD frame types

              With layer 3 development debugging selected
              (command 13):

              0x001 Warnings (default: on)
              0x002 l3 protocol discriptor errors
              0x004 l3 state machine
              0x008 charge info debugging (1TR6)


       hisaxctrl HiSax 1 0x3ff
              enables full generic debugging.
