TTYADM(8) Maintenance Commands and Procedures TTYADM(8)


ttyadm - format and output port monitor-specific information


/usr/sbin/ttyadm [-b] [-c] [-h] [-I] [-r count] [-i msg]
[-m modules] [-p prompt] [-t timeout] [-S y | n]
[-T termtype] -d device -l ttylabel -s service

/usr/sbin/ttyadm -V


The ttyadm command is an administrative command that formats
ttymon(8)-specific information and writes it to standard output. The
Service Access Facility (SAF) requires each port monitor to provide such
a command. Note that the port monitor administrative file is updated by
the Service Access Controller's administrative commands, sacadm(8) and
pmadm(8). ttyadm provides a means of presenting formatted port monitor-
specific (ttymon-specific) data to these commands.


The following options are supported:

Set the ``bi-directional port'' flag. When this flag is
set, the line can be used in both directions. ttymon will
allow users to connect to the service associated with the
port, but if the port is free, uucico(8), cu(1C), or
ct(1C) can use it for dialing out.

Set the connect-on-carrier flag for the port. If the -c
flag is set, ttymon will invoke the port's associated
service immediately when a connect indication is received
(that is, no prompt is printed and no baud-rate searching
is done).

-d device
device is the full pathname of the device file for the TTY

Set the hangup flag for the port. If the -h flag is not
set, ttymon will force a hangup on the line by setting the
speed to 0 before setting the speed to the default or
specified value.

-i message
Specify the inactive (disabled) response message. This
message will be sent to the TTY port if the port is
disabled or the ttymon monitoring the port is disabled.

Initialize only. If the -I option is used, ttymon will
invoke the service only once. This can be used to
configure a particular device without actually monitoring
it, as with software carrier.

-l ttylabel
Specify which ttylabel in the /etc/ttydefs file to use as
the starting point when searching for the proper baud

-m modules
Specify a list of pushable STREAMS modules. The modules
will be pushed in the order in which they are specified
before the service is invoked. modules must be a comma-
separated list of modules, with no white space included.
Any modules currently on the stream will be popped before
these modules are pushed.

-p prompt
Specify the prompt message, for example, ``login:''.

-r count
When the -r option is invoked, ttymon will wait until it
receives data from the port before it displays a prompt.
If count is 0, ttymon will wait until it receives any
character. If count is greater than 0, ttymon will wait
until count newlines have been received.

-s service
service is the full pathname of the service to be invoked
when a connection request is received. If arguments are
required, the command and its arguments must be enclosed
in double quotes (" ").

-S y|n
Set the software carrier value. y will turn software
carrier on. n will turn software carrier off.

-t timeout
Specify that ttymon should close a port if the open on the
port succeeds, and no input data is received in timeout

-T termtype
Set the terminal type. The TERM environment variable will
be set to termtype.

Display the version number of the current
/usr/lib/saf/ttymon command.


If successful, ttyadm will generate the requested information, write it
to standard output, and exit with a status of 0. If ttyadm is invoked
with an invalid number of arguments or invalid arguments, or if an
incomplete option is specified, an error message will be written to
standard error and ttymon will exit with a non-zero status.
