rp3440 - modem connection

Hi all,

I have a modem connected to a rp3440 MP serial remote. What I want is to, via modem, connect directly to my OS. That is, I want to be redirected to the console of my OS, with no interaction with the MP in between.

Is it possible/supported?

Thank you in advance.

Re: rp3440 - modem connection

have a look at this:

MP:CM> sa


This command allows you to enable/disable access to the MP.

Current Set Access Configuration:
R - Remote/Modem : OS SESSION
T - Telnet : Enabled
- - SSH : Disabled (MP Feature Not Licensed)
W - Web SSL : Enabled
I - IPMI over LAN : Enabled

Enter parameter(s) to change, A to modify All, or [Q] to Quit:

Hope this helps!

You can set the MP remote modem port to "OS session" as suggested by Torsten and setup a getty on the serial device ttyd1p2:
# ioscan -fnkC tty
Class I H/W Path Driver S/W State H/W Type Description
tty 0 0/7/1/0 asio0 CLAIMED INTERFACE PCI SimpleComm (103c1290
/dev/diag/mux0 /dev/mux0 /dev/tty0p0
tty 1 0/7/1/1 asio0 CLAIMED INTERFACE PCI Serial (103c1048)
/dev/GSPdiag1 /dev/mux1 /dev/tty1p4
/dev/cul1p2 /dev/tty1p0 /dev/ttyd1p2
/dev/diag/mux1 /dev/tty1p2
# ll /dev/ttyd1p2
crw-rw-rw- 1 bin bin 1 0x010212 Oct 19 2007 /dev/ttyd1p2

But this will not bring you to the console of the OS. If you want to access directly the console, then there is no way to bypass the MP and the "sa" setting has to be " M - MANAGEMENT ACCESS"

First of all, thanks for your replies.
So, what I can conclude is that if I connect via modem, I will never have access to OS other way than choosing the CO option in the MP menu?

Thank you.
