gems-server - Transmit a shell session in real time.
gems-server [-ip ip] [-port p] [-maxconn n] [-wait m] [-log dest]
[-noscript] [-script_bin script]
gems-server -h | -v
Transmits a shell session to be shown in real time in various different
computers or terminals.
gems-server transmits data in real time to clients via a network
connection. Each one of these clients must run the gems-client(1)
program to establish connection and receive the transmitted data.
Clients can connect and disconnect at any given time, but of course
they will only receive the data that is transmitted while they are
connected (just like a radio transmission/reception system).
The gems system is normally used to transmit a console session and show
it in various computers at the same time, but it is also possible to
transmit any other kind of data.
-ip IP address where connections will be accepted.
-port TCP port. Default: 6666.
Do not accept more than n simultaneous clients. Default: 25.
-wait Wait until m clients are connected before starting the
transmission. This is useful to ensure that the first m clients
will receive all data transmitted. The default behavior is to
start transmission immediately, without waiting for client
-log By default, the server does not write log messages. This option
configures the destination of logs. The dest argument can be
‘syslog’ (to log through syslogd(8)), ‘stderr’ (to log through
standard error output), or it can be an arbitrary filename (log
messages will be appended to the file, if it exists).
By default, the server executes the script(1) program to take
terminal data and transmit it. When this option is used the
server will not run script, and data will be read form standard

-h Show a short help message.
-v Show version information.
