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.
