DESCRIPTIONThe cyclades-devices file supplies all mapping between Unix device files (/dev/*) and the addresses of serial ports of Cyclades Terminal Servers. It contains one entry for each serial port, with the following format:
Note: A # character at beginning of line indicates a comment
The entry fields are:
- A full pathname of the file that will be associated to
the serial port. It must start with a "/dev/" preffix.
Two naming schemes may be used here:
- devname does not exist, and will be linked to
a free pseudo-tty. This is the default behavior of
- devname is the name of a valid slave pseudo-tty.
In this case, the '-t 1' option must be assigned
in options field.
(Note: this option is not supported by this release).
- Terminal Server type:
- prts, for Cyclades Pr302X/TS Terminal Servers.
- path, for Cyclades PathRAS Terminal Server.
- Host Name or IP Address of the Terminal Server where
the serial port resides.
- Number of physical port in the Terminal Server. If
treated as the IP address associated with this port,
in a IP-based addressing scheme.
- Server type that will be contacted to handle the
serial port: - rtelnet, for Remote Telnet Server - socket, for Socket Server
- Per-port specific options, passed to cyclades-ser-cli program.
EXAMPLES1. Device on a PR3020/TS Terminal Server pr3k Port 1, accessed through /dev/ctty01 device file name, using telnet protocol (remote telnet server)
2. The same device, but with an IP address pr3k_port1 associated to the serial port (IP-based port addressing)
3. Device on a PathRAS Terminal Server pr3k Port 2, accessed through /dev/ctty02 device file name, using socket protocol (socket server)
