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
The parameters for the connection depend on the connection type.
These are all described in openipmi_conparms (7)
The character to use to escape, or exit, the program. Entering
this chatacter right after a newline is entered causes the pro-
gram to go into command mode. A single character after this
performs a command. The default escape character is "~" as
shown below. Suppported 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.
Do not encrypt the SOL data going over the connection.
Do not do integrity checks on the SOL data going over the con-
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.
Specifies that CTS, DTR, and DSR are to be deasserted at the
start of the SoL session so that the configuration may be mod-
ifeid 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.
