jack_lsp comes with jack, so is always available, but for more
convenience, you might want to try some third-party tools, that automate
the connection process.

One of these (written by me) is jack-matchmaker. You can also use it to
list all ports with their alias names and meta-data pretty-names:

    $ jack-matchmaker --list-inputs --list-outputs \
      --aliases --prettynames

Or shorter:

    $ jack-matchmaker -ioan

The Github page has more information on the program and also lists
several alternatives at the bottom of the page.
