       startsrv - invoke ttysrv for a particular host.


       startsrv host


       startsrv  fires  up ttysrv for a given host. It will kill any already running instance for
       that host, then read /etc/remote-tty/opt/<host>.srv for any  options  to  pass  to  ttysrv
       (defaulting   to  those  that  set  9600,8n1),  /etc/remote-tty/prot/<host>.sock  for  the
       permissions the socket should be set to (default  660),  /etc/remote-tty/owner/<host>.sock
       for  the owner of the socket (default rttymgr:dialout) and /etc/remote-tty/prot/<host>.log
       for the permissions of the logfile (default 640).

       The device node used is /etc/remote-tty/dev/<host>. This will normally be a symlink to the
       correct file in /dev.

       ttysrv  is  configured  to  log  to  /var/log/remote-tty/<host>/<host>,  with a pidfile at
       /var/run/remote-tty/pid/<host> and the socket at /var/run/remote-tty/sock/<host>.
