roger_cli(1) this is the command line interface of Roger Router.


roger_cli [OPTION...]


roger_cli offers a clean solution for controlling the FRITZ!Box or compatible router from the command line with Linux. It can be used to print the current FRITZ!Box journal to the screen, initiate calls or send facsimiles.


The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.
-h, --help
Show help options.
-c, --call
Initiate an outgoing call by softphone. Requires -n number to be given as well.
-s, --sendfax
Initiate sending of a fax. Requires -f file (in PS or PDF format) and -n number to be given as well.
-j, --journal
Show journal of incoming and outgoing calls on the screen.
-d, --debug
Enable debug messages.
-n number, --number=number
Remote telephone or fax number.
-f file, --file=file
File name of a PDF or PostScript file containing the fax to send.


If you want to use the capi fax function with Roger Router, you must enable capi-over-tcp within your FRITZ!Box with #96*3* and the user must be a member of the group fax.
If you want to use the incoming and outgoing call notification into Roger Router, you must enable this feature within your FRITZ!Box with #96*5*.
Please activate the UPnP support of your FRITZ!Box.
