       moprc - MOP Remote console requestor


       moprc [options] <nodename>|<MAC Address>


       moprc  allows  a system administrator to connect to MOP console devices
       (usually  terminal  servers)  and  log  into  them  to  issue  commands
       remotely.  It is the equivalent of "NCP CONNECT NODE" or "SET HOST/MOP"
       on VMS.
       The node maybe specified as a MAC address in Unix format (ie as 6 pairs
       of  hex  digits  seperated  by  colons)  or  as  a name that appears in
       You will need to be root or have privileges to use moprc.

       -i     Selects the ethernet interface to use to connect to the  device.
              By  default the value of environment variable MOPRC_INTERFACE or
              "eth0" is used.

       -v     Shows some information about the node that is connected to

       -t     Trigger the node. This normally reboots the server so  use  this
              with care!

       -p <n> Changes  the  poll  interval  of  moprc  from  200 ms to <n> ms.
              Changing  this  down  will  increase  the  risk   of   timeouts,
              increasing it will decrease the speed of the link.

       -h -?  Shows the usage message.

       -V     Shows the version of moprc.

       MOPRC_INTERFACE  defines  the default interface to use if not specified
       on the command line. If not present the interface "eth0" will be  used.


       On  Darwin  you cannot specify an ethernet address on the command-line,
       the name MUST be in /etc/ethers.
       You can script moprc but it sends one character per ethernet packet  so
       is very slow.
       There is no locking in moprc so be careful to only run once instance at
       a time.
