NAME

uhsoctl – connection utility for Option based devices

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS


uhsoctl [-a apn] [-c cid] [-p pin] [-u username] [-k password] [-r path] [-f path] [-b | -n] interface
uhsoctl -d interface
uhsoctl -h

DESCRIPTION

uhsoctl is a small connection utility for Option N.V. devices that are based on Options packet interface and uses proprietary AT_* calls to establish connections. The utility (tries to) configure both default route and name servers ( /etc/resolv.conf ).

By default uhsoctl detaches from the terminal upon on a successful connection, a few command-line options exists that allows this behavior to be changed.

uhsoctl attempts to find a usable controlling serial port based on the provided network interface. If this fails you might specify a serial port manually.

OPTIONS

-a apn
  Specify APN to connect to.
-c cid
  Specify CID (Context ID) to use, by default CID 1 is used. If an APN has been configured once, it's enough to specify the CID used for further accesses.
-p pin
  Specify SIM PIN.
-u username
  Specify username.
-k password
  Specify username.
-r path
  Path to resolv.conf, default /etc/resolv.conf. Use /dev/null to disable updating of name servers.
-f path
  Explicitly set the serial port to use as controlling terminal. Might be needed if the automatic detection fails.
-b
  Fork into background directly, before a connection has been established.
-n
  Never fork into background, run entirely in foreground.

EXAMPLES

Connect to "apn.example.com" on interface "uhso0" and use PIN "1234" to enable the SIM card.

    uhsoctl -a apn.example.com -p 1234 uhso0

Disconnect from a previously established connection.

    uhsoctl -d uhso0
