The Auto-Response facility (in all console servers with Firmware V3.5.1 and later) monitors nominated ports/ devices / probes/ states for Check Condition to trigger action sequences. To monitor serial ports and check for login/logout or pattern matches for Auto-Response triggers events:
- Click on Serial Login/Logout as the Check Condition. Then in the Serial Login/Logout Check menu select Trigger on Login (to trigger when any user logs into the serial port) or Trigger on Logout and specify Serial Port to perform check on, and/or
- Click on Serial Signal as the Check Condition. Then in the Serial Signal Check menu select the Signal (CTS, DCD, DSR) to trigger on, the Trigger condition (either on serial signal change, or check level) and specify Serial Port to perform check on, and/or
- Click on Serial Pattern as the Check Condition. Then in the Serial Pattern Check menu select the PCRE pattern to trigger on and the serial line (TX or RX) and Serial Port to pattern check on
- Check Save Auto-Response
Note: Before configuring serial port checks in Auto-Response you first must configure the serial port in Console server mode. Also most serial port checks are not resolvable so resolve actions will not be run.
