NAME

gsm0710muxd - a gsm 07.10 muxer  

SYNOPSIS

gsm0710muxd [options]

 

DESCRIPTION

A gsm muxer is needed to keep a ppp/gprs up & running while sms and calls are still signaled on another channel. Some modems even support using gprs while a call is active, others suspend gprs during calls.

The muxer supports various options to change the behaviour for different modems. Use -h to see a brief help screen.

All logging is done through syslog, see the syslog for errors and warnings.

 

COMMAND-LINE OPTIONS

-d
Fork, get a daemon (default: no)

-v
Verboser logging (give twice for even more verbose)

-s <serial port name>
Serial port device to connect to (default: /dev/modem)

-t <timeout>
reset modem after this number of seconds of silence (default: 0)

-P <pin-code>
PIN code to unlock SIM (default: <not set>). This is normally not needed but some modems need the pin before enabling the muxer mode.

-p <number>

-l <filename>

-x <dir>

-a <mode>
additional_functionality (default: 0). This is a bit-set enabling quirks for different modem. The quirks are: WAKEUP_WITH_SYSFS = 1, WAKEUP_WITH_SEQUENCE = 2, SIEMENS_C35 = 4, ENFORA = 8, SHORT_INIT = 16.

-b <baudrate>
muxer-mode baudrate (default: 115200)

-B <baudrate>
serial port baudrate (default: 115200)

HISTORY

The name 'gsm0710muxd' was choosen because the gsm specs describe this method in document 7.10.

 

BUGS/LIMITATIONS

gsm0710muxd There may accure bufferoverruns and thus missing data between muxer and client under certain situations.

Some settings could be determined by a AT-command at startup. This wouldn't be much reliable because modems often lie so i did not invest to much work in this.
