unix remote reboot client for nos

Hello all,

Here is a quick UDB client that I hacked out that will reboot or reset
a KA9Q machine remotely. It is modeled after the remote command in NOS, and
the syntax is similar.

I run it from cron to reboot my ether <=> 56k gateway machine nightly.
(It replaces an X-10 BSR module that rebooted it the old fashioned way)

I have found over the last 2-3 yrs of running nos/net that it will usually
lock up after 3-4 days of being up. I have tried every release (including 12/29)
and they all seem to die. (12/29 did last a week.)

I have tried compiling my own, as well as using the distributed .exe's with
the same results.

I can only assume it is either my HW (2 different PC's) or the busy 56K AX.25
lan we have.

Anyway, this is my solution to the problem. This keeps things nice and fresh as
well as makes remote admin easier.

I have only tested this on an HP 9k/360, but it should work on any system
with Berkely sockets & hostname resolution, as well as getopts.

If anyone comes up with any ifdef's for a specific machine, please let me know
and I will add it to the code.

have fun!

/* This program emulates the KA9Q NOS remote function
   The syntax was kept as close as possible to the one in

   The command argument selection code fragments were modeled after
   KA9Q NOS to keep them similar. (Thanks Phil! How many ways
   can you use getopt & switch's :-) )

   You need to add a line to /etc/services as follows:
      remote      1234/udp                # ka9q reboot socket

   Or you can just specify the port via the -p option.

   Tested on my HP9000/360 HP-UX 7.0   Should work on any sys
   with Berkely sockets & getopts.
