rpc.rigd: Hamlib rig service daemon
rigd - Hamlib rig service daemon
DESCRIPTIONThe rigd program is a Hamlib rig daemon that handles RPC client requests. This allows multiple user programs to share one radio. At this time multiple radio support is not available (help needed!).
Keep in mind that Hamlib is BETA level software. While a lot of backend libraries lack complete rig support, the basic functions are usually well supported. The API may change without publicized notice, while an advancement of the minor version (e.g. 1.1.x to 1.2.x) indicates such a change.
OPTIONSThis program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-').
Here is a summary of the supported options:
- -m, --model=id
Select radio model number. See rig model list (use 'rigctl -l').
NB: rigctl (or third party software) will use rig model 1901 when using rigd.
- -r, --rig-file=device
- Use device as the file name of the port the radio is connected. Often a serial port, but could be a USB to serial adapter. Typically /dev/ttyS0, /dev/ttyS1, /dev/ttyUSB0, etc.
- -p, --ptt-file=device
- Use device as the file name of the Push-To-Talk device using a device file as described above.
- -d, --dcd-file=device
- Use device as the file name of the Data Carrier Detect device using a device file as described above.
- -p, --ptt-type=type
- Use type of Push-To-Talk device. Supported types are RIG, DTR, RTS, PARALLEL, NONE.
- -d, --dcd-type=type
- Use type of Data Carrier Detect device. Supported types are RIG, DSR, CTS, CD, PARALLEL, NONE.
- -s, --serial-speed=baud
- Set serial speed to baud rate. Uses maximum serial speed from rig backend capabilities as the default.
- -c, --civaddr=id
Use id as the CI-V address to communicate with the rig. Only useful for
NB: the id is in decimal notation, unless prefixed by 0x, in which case it is hexadecimal.
- -C, --set-conf=parm=val[,parm=val]*
Set config parameter. e.g. stop_bits=2
Use -L option of rigctl for a list.
- -t, --prog=number
- Use number as the RPC program number. The default is 536871065.
- -v, --verbose
- Set verbose mode, cumulative (see DIAGNOSTICS below).
- -h, --help
- Show a summary of these options and exit.
- -V, --version
- Show the version of rigd and exit.
EXAMPLESStart rigd as root for a Yaesu FT-920 using a USB to serial adapter and backgrounding:
# rpc.rigd -m 114 -r /dev/ttyUSB1 &
Start rigd as root for a Yaesu FT-920 using COM1 while generating TRACE output:
# rpc.rigd -m 114 -r /dev/ttyS0 -vvvvv
Start rigd as root for a Yaesu FT-920 using a USB to serial adapter while setting baud rate and stop bits and backgrounding:
DIAGNOSTICSThe -v, --version option allows different levels of diagnostics to be output to stderr and correspond to -v for BUG, -vv for ERR, -vvv for WARN, -vvvv for VERBOSE, or -vvvvv for TRACE.
A given verbose level is useful for providing needed debugging information to the email address below. For example, TRACE output shows all of the values sent to and received from the radio which is very useful for radio backend library development and may be requested by the developers.
SECURITYNo authentication whatsoever; could be done through domain restriction, though. Please ask if stronger security is needed.
BUGSDoes not support more than one rig that share the same serial port (e.g. Icom radios on a CI-V bus).
REPORTING BUGSReport bugs to <hamlib-developer [at] lists.sourceforge.net>.
We are already aware of the bugs in the previous section :-)
