DOCSIS(1) Docsis configuration file creator.


DOCSIS Configuration File creator.

This program encodes text configuration files which contain Configuration File Settings into binary configuration files, as specified by the DOCSIS RFI 1.1 Specification, Appendix C.

To encode a cable modem configuration file:

./docsis -e <modem_cfg_file> <key_file> <output_file>

To encode multiple cable modem configuration files:

./docsis -m <modem_cfg_file1> ...
<key_file> <new_extension>

To encode a MTA configuration file:

./docsis -p <mta_cfg_file> <output_file>

To encode multiple MTA configuration files:

./docsis -m -p <mta_file1> ...

To decode a CM or MTA config file:

./docsis -d <binary_file>

Where: <cfg_file> = name of text (human readable) cable modem or MTA

configuration file

<key_file> = text file containing the authentication key

(shared secret) to be used for the CMTS MIC

<output_file> = name of output file where the binary data will

be written to (if it does not exist it is created).

<binary_file> = name of binary file to be decoded <new_extension> = new extension to be used when encoding multiple files

See examples/*.cfg for configuration file format.
