Menu Commands

Note that it is currently planned to completely replace the menu system for the next version of wconsd, so these commands will be changing.

binary

binary

This command toggles the state of the binary mode. Binary mode is required for correct use of file transfer protocols, such as xmodem. This mode will be automatically turned on by some telnet clients (if they send the telnet option DO BINARY TRANSMISSION) in which case it may need to be manually turned off using this command.

close

close

If the serial port is current open, this command will close it and stop any serial communications.

copyright

copyright

data

data *5|6|7|8*

Sets the number of data bits. This command will not have any affect until the port is closed and re-opened.

help

Show some quick help for the menu commands

keepalive

keepalive

Toggles the state of Telnet keepalives. If keepalives are turned on, then a Telnet Keepalive option is sent approximately once every two seconds. This will create significantly more network traffic than normal, but will help to avoid sessions being terminated unexpectedly

kill_conn

kill_conn *Connection ID*

Stop a given connection's serial communications. This will close the serial port being used by the given connection ID and thus allow someone else to open that port. This command can be used when an existing session has crashed, or if someone else has logged in and is blocking your work. Since there is no authentication, this command is obviously open to abuse.

open

open *[port number]*

Connect or resume communications with a serial port. If no port number is specified then the current default port number is used. If an serial port is already open, this will just resume communication with that port.

parity

parity *no|even|odd|mark|space*

Set the serial parity. This command will not have any affect until the port is closed and re-opened.

port

port *port number*

Set serial port number. This command will not have any affect until the port is closed and re-opened.

quit

quit

Exit from this session

show_conn_table

show_conn_table

Show the connections table. This table is mostly used for internal debugging information, however it contains the connection ID for all the current connections, which can be used with the kill_conn command

speed

speed *bits per second*

Set serial port speed. This command will not have any affect until the port is closed and re-opened.

status

status

Show current serial port status

stop

stop *1|1.5|2*

Set number of stop bits. This command will not have any affect until the port is closed and re-opened.
