Displaying Messages

You can display current messages in the Console or by connecting to the terminal's Diagnostic daemon using TELNET.

Viewing Messages in the Console Window

You can see current messages by opening the Messages hide box:

  1. In the Console, click on Messages.

  2. To see more messages, scroll through messages in the window or enlarge the window.

Console -> Clear Messages clears messages from the message area. Console -> Rescan Messages redisplays messages that were cleared previously.

Viewing Messages through TELNET

You can see current messages by connecting directly to the diagnostic module through a TELNET connection:

  1. In the Console, select Terminals -> New Terminal.

  2. To view current messages for the local terminal, click on the line beginning with Diag in the Default Hosts window.

  3. To view current messages for a remote terminal, enter its hostname or IP address and the number of the diagnostics port in the Service: field. The default port number is 5998. For example:

    ncdu10 5998

  4. Click on OK. The current messages appear in a Terminal Emulator window. To view more messages, use the window scroll bar.

    While you are connected to a remote terminal, you can ask the user to perform the action causing the problem. You can read the messages as they are issued.

  5. When you are finished, close the TELNET connection and the Terminal Emulator window by selecting Exit from the File menu.
