ncpd(8)            System administration commands            ncpd(8)

       ncpd - Daemon which handles the serial link to a Psion

       ncpd  [-V] [-h] [-v log-class] [-d] [-e] [-p [host:]port] [-s
       device] [-b baud-rate] [long-options]

       ncpd is the daemon which handles  the  serial  link  to  your
       Psion. It listens at port 7501 for local connections and pro‐
       vides basic PLP/NCP services for plpfuse and plpftp and other
       front-ends. It auto-connects to the psion, even after unplug‐
       ging/switching off therefore it can run all the time  if  you
       can dedicate a serial device to it.

       -V, --version
              Display the version and exit

       -h, --help
              Display a short help text and exit.

       -e, --autoexit
              Exit automatically if the device is disconnected. Fur‐
              thermore, use the current  tty  as  I/O  device.  This
              option  is  intended for starting ncpd on demand using
              mgetty's auto-detect function. (A patch for mgetty  is
              needed for that).

       -v, --verbose=log-class
              Increase  the logging level of the program. the possi‐
              ble values for log-class are:

              nl     Set NCP debug level to LOG

              nd     Set NCP debug level to DEBUG

              ll     Set Link debug level to LOG

              ld     Set Link debug level to DEBUG

              pl     Set Packet debug level to LOG

              pd     Set Packet debug level to DEBUG

              ph     Set Packet debug level to HANDSHAKE

              m      Set overall debug level to verbose

              all    Turn on all the above logging on.

       -d, --dontfork
              Do not background the daemon.

       -p, --port=[host:]port
              Specify the port to listen on - by default  the  value
              for  the  host is and the value for the port
              is looked up in /etc/services using the key psion/tcp.
              If  it  is not found there, a default value of 7501 is

       -s, --serial=device
              Specify the serial device to use  to  connect  to  the
              Psion - this defaults to /dev/ttyS0

       -b, --baudrate=baud-rate
              Specify  the  baud  rate to use for the serial connec‐
              tion. If the  word  auto  is  specified,  ncpd  cycles
              through  baud-rates of 115200, 57600, 38400, 19200 and
              9600 baud. Default setting is auto.
