       aseqnet - ALSA sequencer	connectors over	network

       aseqnet [remotehost]

       aseqnet	is  an	ALSA  sequencer	 client	which sends and	receives event
       packets over network.  Suppose two hosts	connected by network, hostA as
       a server	and hostB as a client.	The ALSA sequencer system must be run-
       ning on both hosts.  For	creating the server port, run the following on

	   hostA% aseqnet
	   sequencer opened: 128:0

       Then  a	user  client 128 with port 0 was opened	on hostA.  (The	client
       number may vary.)  For creating the (network-)client port, run  aseqnet
       with the	hostname of the	server:

	   hostB% aseqnet hostA
	   sequencer opened: 132:0

       Now  all	events sent to hostA:128:0 are transferred to hostB:132:0, and
       vice versa.

       The ports created by aseqnet can	be connected arbitrary	to  other  se-
       quencer	ports via aconnect(1).	For example, to	connect	hostB:132:0 to
       a MIDI output device 65:0:

	   hostB% aconnect 132:0 65:0

       Then events to hostA:128:0 will be delivered to hostB:65:0.   The  fol-
       lowing command plays MIDI on hostB.

	   hostA% pmidi	-p 128:0 foo.mid

       The  multiple  clients may exist	simultaneously.	 If hostC is connected
       as a client to hostA, events from from hostA are	sent to	all  connected
       network clients,	i.e. hostB and hostC.  However,	only one connection is
       allowed from a client to	a server.

       To disconnect network, stop all clients	before	server	by  ctrl-C  or
       sending signal to them.	The server will	automatically quit.

       -p port
	      Specify the TCP port number or TCP service name.

       -s addr
	      Subscribe	to the given address for read automatically.

       -d addr
	      Subscribe	to the given address for write automatically.

       -v     Verbose mode.
