actctrl - configure IBM Active 2000 ISDN adaptor
actctrl [-d Driver-Id] action options ...
actctrl is used to setup the IBM Active 2000 ISDN device driver and for downloading the firmware into the ISDN card. The use of actctrl makes sense, if you are using an IBM Active 2000 card only.
-d Driver-Id selects the S0 interface named by Driver-Id. Driver-Ids are defined during driver initialisation. See act2000(4) for a description of the syntax to be used for modularized 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 IBM Active 2000 is used, it may be omitted. If using more than one card, support for the other cards is enabled with the add action of actctrl. 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 actctrl. add [bus[ port[ irq[ id]]]] enables support for an additional card in the driver. bus is is an integer describing the bus-type of the card. Currently, the only value which is allowed here is 1 meaning ISA-bus. In the future, the values 2 (for MCA) and 3 (for PCMCIA) will be available. port is either an integer describing the base port, or the string auto which enables autoprobing. irq is either an integer describing the IRQ to use, the string auto, which enables grabbing of the next free IRQ or the string none which enables polled mode for this card. id is an arbitrary string for referencing the card at a later time. dproto protocol [msn0,msn1, ... msn9] selects the D-channel protocol and defines MSN's if using Euro protocol. protocol may be either the string 1tr6 or the string euro. If selecting Euro protocol, a comma-separated list of up to 10 MSN's may be appended. For defining an empty entry in this list, use a dash. load firmware downloads the firmware into the card and starts operation. Usually the images are located in '/lib/firmware/isdn'. The firmware is named bip1120.bpl. dump is available if the program is configured using the --enable- dump option only. The contents of internal driver variables is dumped on stdout.
'/lib/firmware/isdn'/bip1120.bpl This is the image of the firmware designed for both the German 1TR6 protocol and Euro ISDN.
No bugs so far.
