Command Summary and Access Control

The Makito X decoder CLI commands are divided in two main groups: operation and administration:

  • Operation Commands are used to manage video decoding. Operation command effects are immediate but not persistent (i.e., between reboots) unless the current operating configuration is explicitly saved (using the config command).
  • Administration Commands address the security and network configuration. Their effects are persistent but not always immediate; some require system reboot to take effect.

Below is a list of CLI commands and other functionalities supported by the system, the privileges for each role, and their descriptions.
