DESCRIPTION

       avmcapictrl is used to register active AVM ISA cards kernelcapi  system
       and  therewith  to  the  isdn  system.  You  need it also to upload the
       firmware to any active AVM card. If an error occure please  also  check
       the kernel error messages by using the command dmesg(8).



COMMANDS

       add <portbase> <irq> <type>
            is used to add a ISA card to the kernel-capi2.0 system.  The port-
            base can have the values 0x150, 0x250, 0x300 and 0x340 for the  B1
            ISA  cards,  look  at the jumper on the card.  For a T1-ISA (HEMA)
            card you can select an wide range of ports.
            irq can be selected from the following values:
            3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 15.
            type can be B1 or T1.


       load <bootcode> [<contrnr> [<protocol>
            [P2P |  <dn1>:<spid1>  [<dn2>:<spid2>]]]]  is  used  to  load  the
            firmware  to  a card bootcode is a t4-file. The actual versions of
            the t4-files for the different d-channel protocols can be found at
            ftp://ftp.avm.de/cardware/b1/linux/firmware.
            You  need  different  t4-files  for different d channel protocols:
            b1-1tr6.t4 for 1TR6, b1.t4 for DSS1 and
            b1-usa.t4 for 5ESS and NI1 (DSS1 is also supported).
            For M1/M2 PCMCIA cards you need m1-s10.t4 or m1-s4.t4 depending on
            the handy type used.
            contrnr is the number of the controller (card) starting from 1.
            protocol can be DSS1, CT1, VN3, AUSTEL, 5ESS or NI1.
            P2P point to point
            DN1:SPID1 DN2:SPID2 is for the american protocols 5ESS and NI1.


       reset [contrnr]
            is used to reset a card if loading has failed.  This function only
            make sence if card is not successfully loaded.
            contrnr is the number of the controller (card) starting from 1.


       remove [contrnr]
            is used to remove a card previous added. You can also remove auto-
            matic added cards (for example a B1-PCI card).
            contrnr is the number of the controller (card) starting from 1.


       trace [contrnr] [off|short|on|full|shortnodata|nodata]
            is  used to trace CAPI2.0 messages. The trace will be done as ker-
            nel messages, see dmesg(8).
            contrnr is the number of the controller (card) starting from 1.
            off switch traceing off
            short switch one line per CAPI2.0 message tracing on
            on | full switch on full decode tracing
            shortnodata switch on line per CAPI2.0  message  tracing  on,  but
            exclude DATA_B3_IND and DATA_B3_REQ messages.
            on  |  full switch on full decode tracing, but exclude DATA_B3_IND
            and DATA_B3_REQ messages.


       addcard <driver> <portbase> <irq> [ <membase> [ <cardnr> ] ]
            is used to add a card, this is more generic than add.
            driver currently b1isa or t1isa
            portbase can have the values 0x150, 0x250, 0x300 and 0x340 for the
            b1isa  driver,  look  at the jumper on the card.  For t1isa driver
            you can select an wide range of ports.
            irq can be selected from the following values: 3, 4, 5, 6,  7,  9,
            10, 11, 12 and 15.
            membase memory address if needed by driver
            cardnr only usefull with driver t1isa
