cports - expand host names into <host, server, port> triples
$CLUSTER_HOME/bin/cports hostname [hostname...]
The cports utility expands the hostname arguments into a list of <host, server, port> triples. The returned information is used to access the serial port consoles of the named hosts by way of the terminal server returned in the triples. If an entry for serialports has been made in the /etc/nisswitch.conf file, then the order of lookups is controlled by that entry. If there is no such file or no such entry, then the nameservice look up order is implicitly nis files.
Example 1 Using the cports Command If the /etc/serialports file contains the entry: pepsi soda-tc 5002 the following command: % cports pepsi prints the following string: pepsi soda-tc 5002 This information can be used by the telnet(1) command to remotely access pepsi's console: % telnet soda-tc 5002
