modemu2k v0.0.6-dev ------------------- modemu2k is a fork of modemu, originally developed by Toru Egashira (Travis Build status <https://travis-ci.org/theimpossibleastronaut/modemu2k>) What is modemu2k? ---------------- modemu2k adds telnet capability to a comm program. It can redirect telnet I/O to a pty so that a comm program can handle the pty as a tty with a real modem, and allows you to use a comm program's scripting and file transfer features over telnet. Now supports IPv6 connections. Maintainer: Andy Alt <email@example.com> License: GNU GPL 3 Home page: <https://github.com/theimpossibleastronaut/modemu2k> Issues and bug reporting <https://github.com/theimpossibleastronaut/modemu2k/issues> Dependencies ------------ * gettext (unless --disable-nls is used) * flex Compilation ----------- `./configure` Use ./configure --help to see extra options `make` `make install` is optional. The binary can be run from the src/ directory; however, installation is required to use the translations, and to create and install a script (m2k-minicom.sh) that can invoke minicom (see below). Sample Usage ------------ Note: while in the program if backspace doesn't work, use CTRL+H. 1) Stand alone usage Invoked with no option, modemu2k modemu2k reads from standard input and writes to standard output. Input > atd"localhost [port] (prompt ">" is not shown) You will see your host's login prompt (if a server is running). When you disconnect, you will get "NO CARRIER" indication. Then input > at%q to quit modemu2k. 2) With a comm program (This example uses minicom as the comm program) Invoke with "-c" option, modemu2k -e "AT%B0=1%B1=1&W" -c "minicom -l -tansi -con -p %s" From within the comm program, if you have a server running, to connect you can enter: atd"localhost You could also connect to a BBS. For some telnet addresses, see: * <<Prism BBS<http://filegate.net/> * The Rusty Mailbox (telnet to trmb.ca, port 2030) * Synchronet BBS List<http://www.synchro.net/sbbslist.html> To quit modemu2k, just quit the comm program. A script to invoke minicom as mentioned above will be installed to your bin directory when `make install` is run. Escaping to command mode and returning -------------------------------------- To escape to command mode, use '+++'. Use ATO to return to online mode. Hanging up a call/closing a connection ------------------------------------ If you are connected to a server where gracefully logging out isn't possible, to "hang up" or close the connection you can escape to command mode and enter 'ATH`. Downloads --------- * Release page<https://github.com/theimpossibleastronaut/modemu2k/releases> * FileGate->(Linux Utilities category)<http://www.filegate.net/utiln/utillnx/> (*) Almost all file xfer protocols require 8bit through connection, which means Modemu2k must be in the binary transmission mode. See %B command description in the man page. More details are in the QuickStart guide <https://github.com/theimpossibleastronaut/modemu2k/blob/master/QuickStart> A man page is also available. For Translators ----------- We use Transifex to translate the output messages. To start translating modemu2k, create an account in Transifex and ask to join a translation team (or create a new one) at https://www.transifex.com/na-309/modemu2k/
