roardecnet(7) Hints for DECnet users or RoarAudio


 roard -n [OPTIONS...] ...

 roarclient --server node:: [OPTIONS...] ...


This manpage lists some hints for use of RoarAudio over DECnet.


If DECnet support is compiled in, there is the option '-n' of roard(1). If you set it the daemon will listen via DECnet. You may use the option '-b' to set the object name. Nodenames given via '-b' are ignored. Example:
 roard -n
 roard -n -b ::myobject

If you use the default object local clients should find there way to the server. For remote clients or if you use a non default object it is needed to give a server address in a form listent below.


The server address for DECnet is in one of the following forms: node::, node::object, ::object, ::. This is the way to specify a DECnet connection to node node's object object. Both may be omitted to use defaults. Default node name is local hosts node name. Examples:
 mynode::               connect to mynode
 ::roar                 connect to local object roar
 yournode::yourroard    connect to yournode's object yourroard
 ::                     connect to default object on local node
