NAME
       aseqnet - ALSA sequencer connectors over network

SYNOPSIS
       aseqnet [remotehost]

DESCRIPTION
       aseqnet	is  an ALSA sequencer client which sends and receives event packets over network.
       Suppose two hosts connected by network, hostA as a server and hostB as a client.  The ALSA
       sequencer  system  must	be  running on both hosts.  For creating the server port, run the
       following on hostA:

	   hostA% aseqnet
	   sequencer opened: 128:0

       Then a user client 128 with port 0 was opened on hostA.	(The  client  number  may  vary.)
       For creating the (network-)client port, run aseqnet with the hostname of the server:

	   hostB% aseqnet hostA
	   sequencer opened: 132:0

       Now all events sent to hostA:128:0 are transferred to hostB:132:0, and vice versa.

       The ports created by aseqnet can be connected arbitrary to other sequencer ports via acon-
       nect(1).  For example, to connect hostB:132:0 to a MIDI output device 65:0:

	   hostB% aconnect 132:0 65:0

       Then events to hostA:128:0 will be delivered to hostB:65:0.  The following  command  plays
       MIDI on hostB.

	   hostA% pmidi -p 128:0 foo.mid

       The  multiple  clients  may  exist  simultaneously.   If hostC is connected as a client to
       hostA, events from from hostA are sent to all connected network clients,  i.e.  hostB  and
       hostC.  However, only one connection is allowed from a client to a server.

       To disconnect network, stop all clients before server by ctrl-C or sending signal to them.
       The server will automatically quit.
