RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for icnctrl (redhat section 8)

ICNCTRL(8)			   Linux System Administration			       ICNCTRL(8)

NAME
       icnctrl - configure ICN ISDN adaptor

SYNOPSIS
       icnctrl [-d Driver-Id] action options ...

DESCRIPTION
       icnctrl	is used to setup the ICN ISDN device driver and for downloading the firmware into
       the ISDN card.

       The use of icnctrl makes sense, if you are using an ICN card only.

OPTIONS
       -d Driver-Id
	      selects the S0 interface named by Driver-Id.  Driver-Ids are defined during  driver
	      initialisation.  See  icn(4)  for  a description of the syntax to be used for modu-
	      larised and monolithic driver versions.  This option must be used to  identify  the
	      S0 interface if more than one S0 interface is existent. If a single ICN-2B is used,
	      it may be omitted.  If using more than one card, support for  the  other	cards  is
	      enabled  with  the add action of icnctrl. Ids may not start with digits or small x,
	      because these values are misinterpreted as numeric parameters by insmod.	For load-
	      ing the module, always the newest modutils package should be used to avoid problems
	      during load.

       The following actions may be given to icnctrl.

       add port [id1 [id2]]
	      enables support for an additional card in the driver. If id1 and id2  are  missing,
	      adds  an	ICN-2B	with  an id given by the system. with id2 missing, adds an ICN-2B
	      with an Id given by the user. With both Ids given, adds an  ICN-4B  with	both  Ids
	      given  by  the user. There is no checking against port-conflicts. Ports are checked
	      later during first activation while downloading the firmware and can be changed  at
	      runtime.	Ids are checked against conflicts, and if a conflict happens, replaced by
	      the system in the same manner as if no Id was supplied. It is not allowed,  to  add
	      cards, after a load was done.

       io [base-address port]
	      sets  the  address of the memory-mapped IO-region and the port-base.  After loading
	      the icn-module into kernel-space, this command should be used  as  the  very  first
	      setup,  if the hardware settings are different from the default settings below.  If
	      both parameters are omitted,  prints  out  current  settings.  The  default  memory
	      address  is  0xD0000,  the  default  port-base  is 0x320.  An ICN card uses 4 port-
	      addresses. The memory address is globally used for all cards (cards are  mapped  on
	      demand), while each card has its own port range. Memory range is 16k.

       leased on|1|2|off
	      switches between normal (dialup) and leased-line mode. Leased-line mode is intended
	      for usage with S64K-lines or - if both channels are used - for S02. If  the  second
	      parameter  is  1 , only one channel is enabled.  If the second parameter is 2 or on
	      both channels are enabled. Leased lines do not have a D-channel.	When  leased-line
	      mode  is enabled, the driver simulates incoming calls using special "phone-numbers"
	      for calling and called address which are generated as follows:

	      Calling number:
		     LEASEDx
			    where x is the internal slot-number of the S0 interface. This  number
			    starts  with  0  for the first S0 interface and is incremented by one
			    for every S0 interface configured using the add action.

	      Called number:
		     x
			    where x is equal to the channel number of the  calling  S0	interface
			    starting with 1.

       load boot-code firmware [firmware2]
	      downloads  the  firmware	into  the  card and starts operation. Using this command,
	      after loading the icn-module into kernel-space the first real access to  the  hard-
	      ware is done. Therefore the io action above, should be used before, if the hardware
	      settings are different from the default settings.  Usually the images  are  located
	      in  @DATADIR@.   The boot-code is named loadpg.bin.  The firmware depends on the D-
	      channel protocol of the ISDN line. For German 1TR6-lines,  the  firmware	is  named
	      pc_1t_ca.bin.   For  Euro-ISDN-lines,  it  is  named pc_eu_ca.bin.  When loading an
	      ICN-4B, two firmware parameters have to be supplied. The first firmware is used for
	      the  upper  S0  connector,  the  second firmware is used for the lower S0 connector
	      (towards the card's slot connector).

       dump   is available if the program is configured using the --enable-dump option only.  The
	      contents of internal driver variables is dumped on stdout.

FILES
       @DATADIR@/loadpg.bin
	      This  is	the  image of the bootstrap loader, which is loaded first, then loads the
	      firmware into the card's memory and starts execution.

       @DATADIR@/pc_1t_ca.bin
	      This is the image of the firmware designed for the German 1TR6 protocol.

       @DATADIR@/pc_eu_ca.bin
	      This is the image of the firmware, designed for Euro ISDN.

DIAGNOSTICS
       The following diagnostics may be issued on stderr:

       Read error on boot-code
	      The file supplied as boot-code has less than 4096 bytes  length  or  could  not  be
	      read.

       Read error on firmware
	      The  file  supplied  as  firmware  has less than 65536 bytes length or could not be
	      read.

BUGS
       No bugs so far.
