      Fixup capture/tip/power_rpc27 so that capture returns a positive · ed55f418

      ack/nak for a connection so that the connecting process knows what the
      hell is going on. Turned out to be necessary for power control since
      we do that in parallel, and because it stays busy for 10 seconds on
      each power control. I think we will end up revisiting this at some
      point, adding blocking connections instead of connect/fail status.

      Move .acl file into tiplogs directory since nothing in /dev/tip · 3a67ca5f
      Leigh Stoller authored
      is actually used anymore.
      Added a "generic" entry to /etc/remote so that we do not need tip
      entries for each node; they all look the same anyway.
      Change tip to lookup up generic /etc/remote entry, just to make
      tip happy. The acl file comes from the tiplogs directory, as
      set in the header file.

      Checkpoint new version of capture/tip that is sockets based instead · 34499cb6

      of pty/tty based (since they have several annoying problems
      associated). Note that permission is granted via the use of an "acl"
      file; /dev/tip/machine.acl, which must be set to the group of the
      project the node is in, so the user can read out the process id number
      and the random bits that are used by capture to grant permission to
      use (tip sends the random bits across first thing). This handshake is
      due to change to a request/challenge scheme as described by Dave in
      email to the testbed list.

      The Evisceration of Tip, Chapter 1. · 51f40ab4
      Mike Hibler authored
      Taken from the man page (ntip.1):
      ----
           Ntip differs from the traditional tip in a number of ways:
      
           1.   It does not support calling a remote system, all auto-dialing code
                has been removed.
      
           2.   All the cheezy file transfer support has been removed.
      
           3.   Most of the tilde escapes have been removed.  Mostly these were the
                file trasfer related ones.  See below for what remains.
      
           4.   Ntip ignores 90% of the remote(5) capabilities.  You can set the
                baud rate (br) and the device (dv).  Period.
      
           5.   All of tips variables are still present, but most don't do anything.
                It is left as an exercise to the interested user to differentiate.
      
           6.   By default, it operates in ``raw'' mode instead of the usual
                ``cbreak'' mode.  This means that all input processing (if any) is
                performed by the remote system.  Raw mode also disables
                ``raisechar'' and ``force'' variable interpretation.  Yes, you can
                actually run emacs on an ntip line (modulo the '~' thing).
      
           7.   Tip is the poster-child for fork-without-exec, creating separate
                reader and writer processes executing ``the same code.''  Ntip is a
                child of convenience and consists of a single process using
                select(2).
      
           8.   Ntip no longer uses uucp(1) style locking.  It relies on the TIOCEX-
                CL ioctl (see tty(4))  to provide ``reasonably mutually exclusive''
                access.  While it is still technically possible that two parties
                could open the same line and both get ``exclusive'' access to it, we
                consider this to be the source of amusing anecdotes rather than a
                bug.
