MOPRC(8)		    System Manager's Manual		      MOPRC(8)

NAME
       moprc - MOP Remote console requestor

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

DESCRIPTION
       moprc  allows  a	system administrator to	connect	to MOP console devices
       (usually	terminal servers) and log into	them  to  issue	 commands  re-
       motely. 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
       /etc/ethers.
       You will	need to	be root	or have	privileges to use moprc.

   OPTIONS
       -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.	Chang-
	      ing 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.

EXAMPLES
	 moprc ds200
	 moprc -i eth1 08:00:2B:2B:AD:99

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

BUGS
       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.
