       auscope - Network Audio System Protocol Filter

       auscope [ option	] ...

       auscope	is  an audio protocol filter that can be used to view the net-
       work packets being sent between	an  audio  application	and  an	 audio

       auscope is written in Perl, so you must have Perl installed on your ma-
       chine in	order to run auscope.  If your	Perl  executable  is  not  in-
       stalled as /usr/local/bin/perl, you should modify the first line	of the
       auscope script to reflect the Perl executable's location.  Or, you  can
       invoke auscope as

       perl auscope [ option ] ...

       assuming	the Perl executable is in your path.

       To  operate,  auscope  must know	the port on which it should listen for
       audio clients, the name of the  desktop	machine	 on  which  the	 audio
       server  is  running and the port	to use to connect to the audio server.
       Both the	output port (server) and input port (client) are automatically
       biased  by  8000.  The output port defaults to 0	and the	input port de-
       faults to 1.

	       Specify the port	that auscope will use to  take	requests  from

	       Determines the port that	auscope	will use to connect to the au-
	       dio server.

       -h_audio	server name_
	       Determines the desktop machine name that	auscope	 will  use  to
	       find the	audio server.

	       Determines  the	level  of printing which auscope will provide.
	       The print-level can be 0	or  1.	 The  larger  numbers  provide
	       greater output detail.

       In  the	following  example, mcxterm is the name	of the desktop machine
       running the audio server, which is connected to the TCP/IP network host
       tcphost.	 auscope uses the desktop machine with the -h command line op-
       tion, will listen for client requests on	port 8001 and connect  to  the
       audio server on port 8000.

       Ports (file descriptors)	on the network host are	used to	read and write
       the audio protocol.  The	audio client auplay will connect to the	 audio
       server via the TCP/IP network host tcphost and port 8001:

	      auscope -i1 -o0 -hmcxterm

	      auplay -audio tcp/tcphost:8001 dial.snd

       In  the following example, the auscope verbosity	is increased to	1, and
       the audio client	autool will connect to the audio server	via  the  net-
       work  host tcphost, while displaying its	graphical interface on another
       server labmcx:

	      auscope -i1 -o0 -hmcxterm	-v1

	      autool -audio tcp/tcphost:8001 -display labmcx:0.0
