pages

(for ‘cslogin’ line service) is the number of video pages the terminal

 

supports.

 

term-type

is the type of terminal attached to this line; e.g. ansi. Note this value will be

 

ignored if you have set a termtype value using the command telnet.

dial-status

use when a modem is attached to a port; set to ‘in’ or ‘out’ (default none).

 

Note that ‘dial-status’is unrelated to the User ‘callback’ parameter.

user-name

(for cslogin

line service) can be used to dedicate the line to a specific

 

user. Only this user will be able to log in on this line and they won’t need to

 

enter their login name - just their password.

nouser

(for cslogin

line service) nullifies the user argument; it enables any user

to log in on this line.

line-service select from one of: cslogin, direct, silent, reverse, bidir, slip or ppp.

for remote access connections, see Setting up the line on your Console Server on page 70,

when you select ‘direct’, ‘silent’ or ‘reverse’, you must specify whether the line service is ‘raw’,‘telnet’or ‘ssh’; e.g. silent telnet.

when you select ‘direct’, ‘silent’ or ‘bidir’, you must enter the target host name; e.g. sophocles.

when you select ‘direct raw’, ‘silent raw’ or ‘bidir’, you must specify the TCP port assigned on the target host to listen for the incoming connection.

when you select ‘reverse raw’ ‘reverse ssh’or ‘bidir’, you must specify the TCP port assigned to the unit’s port (that is the Console Server TCP port number). TCP/IP hosts will use this TCP port to establish a connection with the unit.

phone-number a number which the unit will dial on that line, when ‘dial’ is set to ‘out’. Enter the number without spaces. To change the phone number overwrite the previous entry.

modem-name is the name of the attached modem; e.g. usrobotics28.8, or a name you wish to use, e.g. modem 1. Do not enter spaces in the name; use the underscore _ character; e.g. us_robotics_28.8. You can enter a total of nineteen alphanumeric characters (including spaces).

i-timer value enter a period in seconds for which the idle timer will run. Use this timer to close a connection because of inactivity. When the idle timer expires, if there has been no exchange of data, the unit will end the connection. The default value is 0 (zero), meaning that the idle timer will not expire (the connection is open permanently).

This idle timer will be overridden by the idle timer which you can configure for a user; i.e. the user idle timer takes precedence.

s-timer value enter a period in seconds for which the session timer will run. Use this timer to forcibly close the session (connection). When the session timer expires the unit will end the connection. The default value is 0 (zero), meaning that the session timer will not expire (the session is open permanently, or until you kill the line or you/the user log(s) out).

This session timer will be overridden by the session timer which you can configure for a user; i.e. the user session timer takes precedence.
