sredird - RFC 2217 serial port server
sredird [-i] log-level serial-device lock-file [poll-interval]
This manual page documents briefly the sredird
This program when run through inetd
will use the RFC 2217 extensions to
TELNET to implement serial commands over the TCP connection and interface to a
specified serial port.
An optional first parameter is '-i' to enable compatability with Cisco IOS.
The first mandatory parameter is the log level for use in syslog. The next
mandatory parameter is the device node for the serial device, it must be a
fully qualified path. The final mandatory parameter is the file name for the
lock file to be used to prevent multiple instances of sredird
talking to the serial port at the same time, or to allow sharing a port
between modem and sredird.
Here is a configuration line for running it from inetd: sredir stream tcp nowait
root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/sredird 5 /dev/modem /var/lock/LCK..modem
