       startsrv - invoke ttysrv for a particular host.


       startsrv host


       startsrv  fires  up  ttysrv  for a given host. It will kill any already
       running   instance   for   that   host,    then    read    /etc/remote-
       tty/opt/<host>.srv  for  any  options  to pass to ttysrv (defaulting to
       those that  set  9600,8n1),  /etc/remote-tty/prot/<host>.sock  for  the
       permissions  the  socket  should  be set to (default 660), /etc/remote-
       tty/owner/<host>.sock  for   the   owner   of   the   socket   (default
       rttymgr:dialout)    and    /etc/remote-tty/prot/<host>.log    for   the
       permissions of the logfile (default 640).

       The device node used is /etc/remote-tty/dev/<host>. This will  normally
       be a symlink to the correct file in /dev.

       ttysrv  is configured to log to /var/log/remote-tty/<host>/<host>, with
       a  pidfile  at  /var/run/remote-tty/pid/<host>  and   the   socket   at


       remote-tty(1), ttysrv(8).


       rtty  was  written  by Paul Vixie <>. This manual page was
       written by Jonathan McDowell <> for the Debian  project
       (but may be used by others).
