CONMAN(1)		  ConMan: The Console Manager		     CONMAN(1)

       conman - ConMan client

       conman [OPTION]... [CONSOLE]...

       conman  is a program for connecting to remote consoles being managed by
       conmand.	 Console names can  be	separated  by  spaces  and/or  commas.
       Globbing is used by default to match console names against the configu‐
       ration, but regular expression matching can be enabled  with  the  '-r'

       conman  supports	 three	modes  of console access: monitor (read-only),
       interactive (read-write), and broadcast (write-only).  If  neither  the
       '-m'  (monitor) nor '-b' (broadcast) options are specified, the console
       session is opened in interactive mode.

       -b     Broadcast to multiple consoles (write-only).  Data sent  by  the
	      client will be copied to all specified consoles in parallel, but
	      console output will not be sent back to the client.  This option
	      can be used in conjunction with '-f' or '-j'.

       -d destination
	      Specify  the  location  of  the  conmand	daemon, overriding the
	      default [].	 This location may contain a  hostname
	      or  IP  address,	and be optionally followed by a colon and port

       -e character
	      Specify the client escape character, overriding the default [&].

       -f     Specify that write-access to the	console	 should	 be  "forced",
	      thereby  stealing	 the console away from existing clients having
	      write privileges.	 The original clients are informed by  conmand
	      of  who  perpetrated  the	 theft as their connections are termi‐

       -F file
	      Read console names/patterns from file.  Only  one	 console  name
	      may  be  specified  per  line.  Leading and trailing whitespace,
	      blank lines, and comments (i.e., lines beginning with a '#') are

       -h     Display a summary of the command-line options.

       -j     Specify  that  write-access  to  the console should be "joined",
	      thereby sharing the console with existing clients	 having	 write
	      privileges.  The original clients are informed by conmand that a
	      new client has been granted write privileges.

       -l file
	      Log console session output to file.

       -L     Display license information.

       -m     Monitor a console (read-only).

       -q     Query conmand for consoles  matching  the	 specified  names/pat‐
	      terns.  Output from this query can be saved to file for use with
	      the '-F' option.

       -Q     Enable quiet-mode,  suppressing  informational  messages.	  This
	      mode  can	 be  toggled  within  a	 console  session via the '&Q'

       -r     Match console names via regular expressions instead of globbing.

       -v     Enable verbose mode.

       -V     Display version information.

       The following escapes are supported and assume the default escape char‐
       acter [&]:

       &?     Display a list of currently available escapes.

       &.     Terminate the connection.

       &&     Send a single escape character.

       &B     Send a "serial-break" to the remote console.

       &E     Toggle echoing of client input.

       &F     Switch from read-only to read-write via a "force".

       &I     Display information about the connection.

       &J     Switch from read-only to read-write via a "join".

       &L     Replay  up  the  the  last  4KB  of console output.  This escape
	      requires the console device to have logging enabled in the  con‐
	      mand configuration.

       &M     Switch from read-write to read-only.

       &Q     Toggle quiet-mode to display/suppress informational messages.

       &R     Reset  the  node	associated  with  this	console.   This escape
	      requires a "resetcmd" to be specified in the conmand  configura‐

       &Z     Suspend the client.

       The following environment variables override the default settings.

	      Specifies	 the  hostname	or IP address at which to contact con‐
	      mand, but may be overridden by the '-d' command-line option.   A
	      port  number separated by a colon may follow the hostname (i.e.,
	      host:port), although the CONMAN_PORT environment variable	 takes
	      precedence.   If	not  set, the default host [] will be

	      Specifies the port on which to contact conmand, but may be over‐
	      ridden by the '-d' command-line option.  If not set, the default
	      port [7890] will be used.

	      The first character of this variable specifies the escape	 char‐
	      acter,  but  may	be overridden by the '-e' command-line option.
	      If not set, the default escape character [&] will be used.

       The client/server communications are not yet encrypted.
