       auscope - Network Audio System Protocol Filter


       auscope [ option ] ...


       auscope  is  an  audio  protocol filter that can be used to view the network packets being
       sent between an audio application and an audio server.

       auscope is written in Perl, so you must have Perl installed on your machine  in  order  to
       run  auscope.  If your Perl executable is not installed as /usr/local/bin/perl, you should
       modify the first line of the auscope script to reflect  the  Perl  executable's  location.
       Or, you can invoke auscope as

       perl auscope [ option ] ...

       assuming the Perl executable is in your path.

       To  operate,  auscope  must know the port on which it should listen for audio clients, the
       name of the desktop machine on which the audio server is running and the port  to  use  to
       connect  to  the  audio server.  Both the output port (server) and input port (client) are
       automatically biased by 8000.  The output port defaults to 0 and the input  port  defaults
       to 1.


               Specify the port that auscope will use to take requests from clients.

               Determines the port that auscope will use to connect to the audio server.

       -h<audio server name>
               Determines  the  desktop  machine  name  that  auscope  will use to find the audio

               Determines the level of printing which auscope will provide.  The print-level  can
               be 0 or 1.  The larger numbers provide greater output detail.


       In  the  following  example,  mcxterm is the name of the desktop machine running the audio
       server, which is connected to the TCP/IP network host tcphost.  auscope uses  the  desktop
       machine  with the -h command line option, will listen for client requests on port 8001 and
       connect to the audio server on port 8000.

       Ports (file descriptors) on the network  host  are  used  to  read  and  write  the  audio
       protocol.  The audio client auplay will connect to the audio server via the TCP/IP network
       host tcphost and port 8001:

              auscope -i1 -o0 -hmcxterm

              auplay -audio tcp/tcphost:8001 dial.snd

       In the following example, the auscope verbosity is increased to 1, and  the  audio  client
       autool will connect to the audio server via the network host tcphost, while displaying its
       graphical interface on another server labmcx:

              auscope -i1 -o0 -hmcxterm -v1

              autool -audio tcp/tcphost:8001 -display labmcx:0.0
