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 session. This is the default.
-holdoff
Specifies that CTS, DTR, and DSR are to be deasserted at the start of the SoL session 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.
