Reseting a port

I’d like to set up a user with the ability to reset a port. I’m not sure if this will be necessary with our new Digi TS, but we had to do it all the time on our old annex, basically it stops and restarts serial communication.

Would this just mean creating a menu item

reconnect p=1




The reconnect command allows a user to connect to the last port they were connected to.

Only the root user is able to “reset” or kill a port:

#> kill tty=(port#)

However, there should not be any need for this. A port requiring a reset indicates an underlying problem that should be addressed (for example, a buffer overflow condition, idletimeout, etc…).

If the ports reach a condition requiring a reset, I recommend contacting Digi Tech. Support to determine the root cause.
