CONMAN(1)			   ConMan: The Console Manager				CONMAN(1)

NAME
       conman - ConMan client

SYNOPSIS
       conman [OPTION]... [CONSOLE]...

DESCRIPTION
       conman  is  a program for connecting to remote consoles being managed by conmand.  Console
       names can be separated by spaces and/or commas.	Globbing is used by default to match con-
       sole  names against the configuration, but regular expression matching can be enabled with
       the '-r' option.

       conman supports three modes of console access:  monitor	(read-only),  interactive  (read-
       write),	and  broadcast	(write-only).  If neither the '-m' (monitor) nor '-b' (broadcast)
       options are specified, the console session is opened in interactive mode.

OPTIONS
       -b     Broadcast to multiple consoles (write-only).  Data  sent	by  the  client  will  be
	      copied  to  all specified consoles in parallel, but console output will not be sent
	      back to the client.  This option can be used in conjunction with '-f' or '-j'.

       -d destination
	      Specify  the   location	of   the   conmand   daemon,   overriding   the   default
	      [127.0.0.1:7890].   This	location  may  contain	a  hostname or IP address, and be
	      optionally followed by a colon and port number.

       -e character
	      Specify the client escape character, overriding the default [&].

       -f     Specify that write-access to the console should be "forced", thereby  stealing  the
	      console  away  from existing clients having write privileges.  The original clients
	      are informed by conmand of who perpetrated the theft as their connections are  ter-
	      minated.

       -F file
	      Read  console names/patterns from file.  Only one console name may be specified per
	      line.  Leading and trailing whitespace, blank  lines,  and  comments  (i.e.,  lines
	      beginning with a '#') are ignored.

       -h     Display a summary of the command-line options.

       -j     Specify  that  write-access  to the console should be "joined", thereby sharing the
	      console with existing clients having write privileges.  The  original  clients  are
	      informed by conmand that a new client has been granted write privileges.

       -l file
	      Log console session output to file.

       -L     Display license information.

       -m     Monitor a console (read-only).

       -q     Query conmand for consoles matching the specified names/patterns.  Output from this
	      query can be saved to file for use with the '-F' option.

       -Q     Enable quiet-mode, suppressing informational messages.  This mode  can  be  toggled
	      within a console session via the '&Q' escape.

       -r     Match console names via regular expressions instead of globbing.

       -v     Enable verbose mode.

       -V     Display version information.

ESCAPE CHARACTERS
       The following escapes are supported and assume the default escape character [&]:

       &?     Display a list of currently available escapes.

       &.     Terminate the connection.

       &&     Send a single escape character.

       &B     Send a "serial-break" to the remote console.

       &E     Toggle echoing of client input.

       &F     Switch from read-only to read-write via a "force".

       &I     Display information about the connection.

       &J     Switch from read-only to read-write via a "join".

       &L     Replay  up  the  the  last 4KB of console output.  This escape requires the console
	      device to have logging enabled in the conmand configuration.

       &M     Switch from read-write to read-only.

       &Q     Toggle quiet-mode to display/suppress informational messages.

       &R     Reset the node associated with this console.  This escape requires a "resetcmd"  to
	      be specified in the conmand configuration.

       &Z     Suspend the client.

ENVIRONMENT
       The following environment variables override the default settings.

       CONMAN_HOST
	      Specifies  the hostname or IP address at which to contact conmand, but may be over-
	      ridden by the '-d' command-line option.  A port number separated	by  a  colon  may
	      follow  the  hostname (i.e., host:port), although the CONMAN_PORT environment vari-
	      able takes precedence.  If not set, the default host [127.0.0.1] will be used.

       CONMAN_PORT
	      Specifies the port on which to contact conmand, but may be overridden by	the  '-d'
	      command-line option.  If not set, the default port [7890] will be used.

       CONMAN_ESCAPE
	      The  first  character  of  this variable specifies the escape character, but may be
	      overridden by the '-e' command-line option.  If not set, the default escape charac-
	      ter [&] will be used.

SECURITY
       The client/server communications are not yet encrypted.
