       eiconctrl [-d Driver-Id] action options ...


       eiconctrl  is  used  to setup the Eicon ISDN device driver
       and for downloading the firmware into the ISDN card.

       The use of eiconctrl makes sense,  if  you  are  using  an
       active Eicon ISDN card only.


       -d Driver-Id
              selects  the  S0/S2M  interface named by Driver-Id.
              Driver-Ids are defined  during  driver  initialisa­
              tion.  See  README.eicon  for  a description of the
              syntax to be used for  modularised  and  monolithic
              driver versions.  This option must be used to iden­
              tify the S0/S2M interface if more than  one  S0/S2M
              interface is existent. If a single card is used, it
              may be omitted.  If using more  than  one  ISA-Bus-
              type  card,  support for the other cards is enabled
              with the  add  action  of  eiconctrl.  PCI-Bus-type
              cards  will  be  automatically  added during driver
              initialisation. Ids may not start  with  digits  or
              small x, because these values are misinterpreted as
              numeric parameters by insmod.  For loading the mod­
              ule,  always  the newest modutils package should be
              used to avoid problems during load.

       The following actions may be given to eiconctrl.

       irq [interrupt]
              sets the irq number to  use  (only  ISA).   If  the
              interrupt  value  is  omitted,  the current setting
              will be printed.

       load  protocol  [options]
              Downloads the protocol- and dsp-code into the  card
              and starts operation.

              etsi Euro-ISDN E-DSS1 (default)
              1tr6 German ISDN Protocol
              .... other protocols are also possible

              For  options  see  eiconctrl without any parameters
              for ISA cards and eiconctrl  divaload  -h  for  PCI


       COMMON to all BRI-ISA
              When using BRI-PtP set -S1  -n  -t0  options.  Some
              (very  rare) switches require the -S2 here.The off­
              set, set by the on-boards jumpers  needs  an  addi­
              tional  '0'  (f.e.  Cards  jumper setup is 0xd800 -
              means a membase of 0xd8000 ).

       S SX SXn SCOM
              when loading the card's module  by  insmod  /  mod­
              probe,  you  need  to  specify Membase, IRQ and ID.
              Only the SCOM is also MCA-supported.

       S2M    When using PRI-PtP set -n -S2

       QUADRO Loading this card as usual will automatically  find
              and  autoload the remaining three cards. Don't for­
              get to set the Membase, IRQ  and  ID  string  using
              insmod  or  modprobe.  Remember  to "eiconctrl load
              <card_n>" for all "four" cards  manually  with  the
              desired protocol. When setting the ID's last letter
              to an "a", the remaining  ID's  will  be  continued
              with "b, c, d" ; Otherwise the ID-string will add a
              "_2 _3 _4" to the cards device-description.

       COMMON to all BRI/PRI PCI
              All cards are auto detected and autoloaded w/o  any
              parameters at insmod/modprobe.  Using more than one
              card in a system will require  the  eiconctrl  "-d"
              option  to load the futher cards. (f.e eiconctrl -d
              eicon2) You can also use the -all option to get all
              boards loaded at one time (divaload only). The ETSI
              protocol is default and is not needed to be set  as
              parm.  Otherwise  add the desired protocol to spec­
              ify. The  protocolcodes  are  normally  located  at

       4BRI   Loading  this  card will set the protocol to all "4
              cards" same style. You cannot load diffrent  codes.
              This is not a bug! The ID's are set while loading -

       PRI    When using PRI-PtP set -n -S2
              Use option -x to set NT mode.


       eiconctrl load etsi
       obvious bug.
