AUSCOPE(1)AUSCOPE(1)NAMEauscope - Network Audio System Protocol Filter
SYNOPSISauscope [ option ] ...
DESCRIPTIONauscope is an audio protocol filter that can be used to view the net‐
work packets being sent between an audio application and an audio
auscope is written in Perl, so you must have Perl installed on your
machine in order to run auscope. If your Perl executable is not
installed as /usr/local/bin/perl, you should modify the first line of
the auscope script to reflect the Perl executable's location. Or, you
can invoke auscope as
perl auscope [ option ] ...
assuming the Perl executable is in your path.
To operate, auscope must know the port on which it should listen for
audio clients, the name of the desktop machine on which the audio
server is running and the port to use to connect to the audio server.
Both the output port (server) and input port (client) are automatically
biased by 8000. The output port defaults to 0 and the input port
defaults to 1.
Specify the port that auscope will use to take requests from
Determines the port that auscope will use to connect to the
-h<audio server name>
Determines the desktop machine name that auscope will use to
find the audio server.
Determines the level of printing which auscope will provide.
The print-level can be 0 or 1. The larger numbers provide
greater output detail.
In the following example, mcxterm is the name of the desktop machine
running the audio server, which is connected to the TCP/IP network host
tcphost. auscope uses the desktop machine with the -h command line
option, will listen for client requests on port 8001 and connect to the
audio server on port 8000.
Ports (file descriptors) on the network host are used to read and write
the audio protocol. The audio client auplay will connect to the audio
server via the TCP/IP network host tcphost and port 8001:
auscope-i1 -o0 -hmcxterm
auplay -audio tcp/tcphost:8001 dial.snd
In the following example, the auscope verbosity is increased to 1, and
the audio client autool will connect to the audio server via the net‐
work host tcphost, while displaying its graphical interface on another
auscope-i1 -o0 -hmcxterm -v1
autool -audio tcp/tcphost:8001 -display labmcx:0.0
