kermit.conf

The file ~/kermit.conf in the operator account on sauron stores configuration information for the kermitui software. Under normal circumstances, one should not have to edit the contents of this file.

The first section of the file sets where kermitui software files and data are stored.

#### Where should kermitui find its files?

set basedir /home/operator/aeos/
set libdir $basedir/kermitui
set dataPath /home/operator/data/kermit/
set include_dir $basedir/include

# Where should we save GUI state?
# note you can't use ~'s in strings in tcl.
set savepath "/home/operator/"

The second section sets which host is running the traffic server. You'll almost certainly never change this.

##### Which host to use for traffic?

set traffic_host "sauron"

The third section contains flags which turn on or off various sections of the code. This is the section that one is most likely to need to edit.

##### What are current settings for kermitui?
set coronagraph_comms 1
set coronagraph_commands 1
set useidlpipe 0
set useds9 1
set useSoundserver 0
set liveinstrument 1
set usemotors 1
set useLakeshore 1

The last section specifies the IP addresses and ports which are used to communicate with the motor controller and Coronagraph computer.

##### Where is the galil motor controller?

set motorcontroller_ip "192.168.1.6"

##### Where is the coronagraph?
