isdnmonitor -- isdn4bsd / isdnd remote monitoring tool SYNOPSIS
isdnmonitor [-c] [-d debuglevel] [-f filename] [-h hostspec] [-l pathname] [-p portspec] DESCRIPTION
isdnmonitor is used to remotely monitor the operation of the ISDN demon, isdnd(8), which manages all ISDN related connection and disconnec- tion of ISDN devices supported by the isdn4bsd package. The options are as follows: -c Switch to (curses-) fullscreen mode of operation. In this mode, isdnmonitor behaves nearly exactly as isdnd(8) in fullscreen mode. In fullscreen mode, entering the control character Control-L causes the display to be refreshed and entering Carriage-Return or Enter will pop-up a command window. Because isdnmonitor will not listen to messages while the command window is active, this command window will disappear automatically after 5 seconds without any command key press. While the command window is active, Tab or Space advances to the next menu item. To execute a command, press Return or Enter for the highlighted menu item, or enter the number corresponding to the item to be executed or enter the capitalized character in the menu item description. -d If debugging support is compiled into isdnmonitor this option is used to specify the debugging level. In addition, this option accepts also the character 'n' as an argument to disable displaying debug messages on the full-screen dis- play. -f Specifying this option causes isdnmonitor to write its normal output and - if enabled - debugging output to a file which name is specified as the argument. -l is used to specify a Unix local domain socket name to be used for communication between isdnd(8) and isdnmonitor -h is used to specify a hostname or a dotted-quad IP address of a machine where an isdnd(8) is running which should be monitored. -p This option may be used to specify a remote port number in conjunction with the -h option. ENVIRONMENT
The following environment variables affect the execution of isdnmonitor: TERM The terminal type when running in full-screen display mode. See environ(7) for more information. EXAMPLES
For a first try, the following command should be used to start isdnmonitor to monitor a locally running isdnd: isdnmonitor -h localhost DIAGNOSTICS
Exit status is 0 on success, 1 on error. SEE ALSO

ISDN(4) 						   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 						   ISDN(4)

isdn -- ISDN kernel to userland master device SYNOPSIS
pseudo-device isdn DESCRIPTION
The isdn device driver is used by the isdnd(8) daemon to exchange messages with the ISDN kernel part for the purpose of call establishment, control and disconnection and to access various control and status information. The messages and message parameters are documented in the include file /usr/include/netisdn/i4b_ioctl.h. The available ioctl's are: I4B_CDID_REQ Request a unique Call Description IDentifier (cdid) which identifies uniquely a single interaction of the local D channel with the exchange. I4B_CONNECT_REQ Actively request a call setup to a remote ISDN subscriber. I4B_CONNECT_RESP Respond to an incoming call, either accept, reject or ignore it. I4B_DISCONNECT_REQ Actively terminate a connection. I4B_CTRL_INFO_REQ Request information about an installed ISDN controller card. I4B_DIALOUT_RESP Give information about call setup to driver who requested dialing out. I4B_TIMEOUT_UPD Update the kernels timeout value(s) in case of dynamically calculated shorthold mode timing changes. I4B_UPDOWN_IND Inform the kernel userland drivers about interface soft up/down status changes. I4B_CTRL_DOWNLOAD Download firmware to active card(s). I4B_ACTIVE_DIAGNOSTIC Return diagnostic information from active cards. Status and event messages available from the kernel are: MSG_CONNECT_IND An incoming call from a remote ISDN user is indicated. MSG_CONNECT_ACTIVE_IND After an incoming call has been accepted locally or an outgoing call has been accepted by a remote, the exchange signaled an active connection and the corresponding B-channel is switched through. MSG_DISCONNECT_IND A call was terminated. MSG_DIALOUT_IND A userland interface driver requests the daemon to dial out (typically a network interface when a packet arrives in its send queue). MSG_IDLE_TIMEOUT_IND A call was terminated by the isdn4bsd kernel driver because a B-channel idle timeout occurred. MSG_ACCT_IND Accounting information from a network driver. MSG_CHARGING_IND Charging information from the kernel. SEE ALSO
