Linesrv

Linesrv is a server to remotely control the internet connection.Clients on other hosts may now talk to this server and say that it should establish a certain line.Then it sends to all connected Clients a message that the connection is established. The connection won't get killed until each client told to do so, had a timeout or has been terminated.

Server

Linesrv is the Server part of the LineControl Tool.You need enable the server if you want use the remote clients.
