solterm(1)			   IPMI Serial over LAN program 		       solterm(1)

NAME
       solterm - An IPMI Serial over LAN program

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 character
	      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.  Supported 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 ses-
		     sion. This is the default.

       -holdoff
	      Specifies that CTS, DTR, and DSR are to be deasserted at the start of the SoL  ses-
	      sion so that the configuration may be modified 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.
