ICNCTRL(8)                Linux System Administration               ICNCTRL(8)



NAME
       icnctrl - configure ICN ISDN adaptor

SYNOPSIS
       icnctrl [-d Driver-Id] action options ...

DESCRIPTION
       icnctrl is used to setup the ICN ISDN device driver and for downloading
       the firmware into the ISDN card.

       The use of icnctrl makes sense, if you are using an ICN card only.

OPTIONS
       -d Driver-Id
              selects the S0 interface named by Driver-Id.  Driver-Ids are
              defined during driver initialisation. See icn(4) for a
              description of the syntax to be used for modularised and
              monolithic driver versions.  This option must be used to
              identify the S0 interface if more than one S0 interface is
              existent. If a single ICN-2B is used, it may be omitted.  If
              using more than one card, support for the other cards is enabled
              with the add action of icnctrl. Ids may not start with digits or
              small x, because these values are misinterpreted as numeric
              parameters by insmod.  For loading the module, always the newest
              modutils package should be used to avoid problems during load.

       The following actions may be given to icnctrl.

       add port [id1 [id2]]
              enables support for an additional card in the driver. If id1 and
              id2 are missing, adds an ICN-2B with an id given by the system.
              with id2 missing, adds an ICN-2B with an Id given by the user.
              With both Ids given, adds an ICN-4B with both Ids given by the
              user. There is no checking against port-conflicts. Ports are
              checked later during first activation while downloading the
              firmware and can be changed at runtime. Ids are checked against
              conflicts, and if a conflict happens, replaced by the system in
              the same manner as if no Id was supplied. It is not allowed, to
              add cards, after a load was done.

       io [base-address port]
              sets the address of the memory-mapped IO-region and the port-
              base.  After loading the icn-module into kernel-space, this
              command should be used as the very first setup, if the hardware
              settings are different from the default settings below.  If both
              parameters are omitted, prints out current settings. The default
              memory address is 0xD0000, the default port-base is 0x320.  An
              ICN card uses 4 port-addresses. The memory address is globally
              used for all cards (cards are mapped on demand), while each card
              has its own port range. Memory range is 16k.

       leased on|1|2|off
              switches between normal (dialup) and leased-line mode. Leased-
              line mode is intended for usage with S64K-lines or - if both
              channels are used - for S02. If the second parameter is 1 , only
              one channel is enabled.  If the second parameter is 2 or on both
              channels are enabled. Leased lines do not have a D-channel. When
              leased-line mode is enabled, the driver simulates incoming calls
              using special "phone-numbers" for calling and called address
              which are generated as follows:

              Calling number:
                     LEASEDx
                            where x is the internal slot-number of the S0
                            interface. This number starts with 0 for the first
                            S0 interface and is incremented by one for every
                            S0 interface configured using the add action.

              Called number:
                     x
                            where x is equal to the channel number of the
                            calling S0 interface starting with 1.

       load boot-code firmware [firmware2]
              downloads the firmware into the card and starts operation. Using
              this command, after loading the icn-module into kernel-space the
              first real access to the hardware is done. Therefore the io
              action above, should be used before, if the hardware settings
              are different from the default settings.  Usually the images are
              located in @DATADIR@.  The boot-code is named loadpg.bin.  The
              firmware depends on the D-channel protocol of the ISDN line. For
              German 1TR6-lines, the firmware is named pc_1t_ca.bin.  For
              Euro-ISDN-lines, it is named pc_eu_ca.bin.  When loading an
              ICN-4B, two firmware parameters have to be supplied. The first
              firmware is used for the upper S0 connector, the second firmware
              is used for the lower S0 connector (towards the card's slot
              connector).

       dump   is available if the program is configured using the --enable-
              dump option only. The contents of internal driver variables is
              dumped on stdout.

FILES
       @DATADIR@/loadpg.bin
              This is the image of the bootstrap loader, which is loaded
              first, then loads the firmware into the card's memory and starts
              execution.

       @DATADIR@/pc_1t_ca.bin
              This is the image of the firmware designed for the German 1TR6
              protocol.

       @DATADIR@/pc_eu_ca.bin
              This is the image of the firmware, designed for Euro ISDN.
