The spiderport is no longer used on Tardis - for serial access we currently use a cisco-serial accessible from kal

Admin

Connect to the spiderport's administration port from davison (the router) with telnet 192.168.1.3 2048 and login. '?' brings up the command list...

Admin: ?

The following commands are available:

ADDGATE    (or AG)       ADDHOST    (or AH)       ADDRESS    (or AD)
BOOT                     BREAK      (or BR)       CHBOOT     (or CB)
CHLINE     (or CL)       CHNAME     (or CN)       DELGATE    (or DG)
DELHOST    (or DH)       DISABLE    (or DI)       ENABLE     (or EN)
GATEWAY    (or GA)       HELP       (or  ?)       HOSTNAME   (or HO)
KILL       (or KI)       LANGUAGE   (or LA)       NAMESERVER (or NS)
PASSWORD   (or PA)       PROMPT     (or PR)       QUIT       (or  Q)
RIP        (or RI)       SHOWGATE   (or SG)       SHOWHOST   (or SH)
SHOWLINE   (or SL)       SHOWROUTE  (or SR)       SHOWSTATS  (or SS)
SIGNON     (or SI)       TCPSTATUS  (or TS)       UPTIME     (or UP)
WHOAMI     (or WH)

For more information type 'HELP command' or 'HELP ALL'.

'SL' shows the lines currently enabled/disabled and their settings. The ones marked "# Slave 1 9600 NONE NONE NONE 8 OFF # OFF" are the ones which are currently enabled.

To enable another port, you need to 'CL' for Change line and plug in the same values as above.

'SH' and 'AH' let you view and edit the hosts table, 'BOOT' and 'PA' let you restart and change the password. The hosts table should be kept up to date to reflect exactly which machines are connected to which ports, but don't be surprised if they are not.

Usage

To actually use the spiderport, you telnet spiderport <n> ie, 4 for type40 or 6 for mccoy (atow). From ^[, telnet's escape character, send break will send a Sun machine back to its prom.

If it isn't responding to the network, you can connect to it over serial via leela:

picocom /dev/ttyS0

However, leela appears to be unstable when using it as a serial terminal, so use it sparingly. (This is currently turned off.)

Notes

The spiderport was developed by spider systems in edinburgh. It contains their TCP/IP stack which became the TCP/IP stack installed in windows95. And guess what, it's got all of the exploits and holes as well. Be careful about exposing it to the world.

Current setup
