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.
