NAME

        axparms - Configure AX.25 interfaces.
 

SYNOPSIS

        axparms -assoc|-forward|-route|-setcall|-version ...
 

DESCRIPTION

        The  axparms  command  is  designed to be a multi-function command that
        allows miscellaneous commands to be issued to the Linux AX.25  protocol
        layer. It includes the functionality of axassociate and axsetcall which
        this command superceedes. The different modes of the command are chosen
        by  the  first argument. Sunsequent arguments depend upon this argument
        and so no generalised command format can be given.
 
 -assoc Argument
        The format of this option is:
 
        axparms -assoc <callsign> <username>
        axparms -assoc <callsign> delete
        axparms -assoc policy [default|deny]
        axparms -assoc show
 
        This option mainpulates the kernel uid/callsign mapping table, allowing
        callsigns  to  be associated and dis-associated with a user. The policy
        option permits the superuser to have all other uid’s either default  to
        the actual port name, or to block traffic.
 
        At  power  up  the table is blank and the policy is ’default’, which is
        thus backward compatible.
 
 -forward Argument
        Allows the use of many receivers with one transmitter, known as  packet
        forwarding in many systems. The format of this command is:
 
        axparms -forward <portfrom> <portto>
        axparms -forward <portfrom> delete
 
        Any  packets  to be transmitted on port portfrom will be transmitted on
        port portto. This will stay in force until the second form of the  com‐
        mand is issued which will remove the association.
 
 -route Argument
        This  option allows the internal AX.25 routing table to be manipulated.
        This table is available for reading in /proc/net/ax25_route,  and  will
        be  built  up  dynamically by stations heard. However it is possible to
        add, delete and list entries via this option.
 
        The formats of this option are:
 
        axparms -route add <port> <callsign> [<digis>] [-ipmode V|D]
        axparms -route del <port> <callsign>
        axparms -route list
 
        Routes added via this command will not be  removed  from  the  internal
        routing  table  when  they are “old” as normal entries are. The -ipmode
        option sets mode vc or mode datagram for this destination.
 
        If the <callsign> argument is set to “default” then this will  set  the
        default  route  for  all  outgoing AX.25 connections which will be used
        when there is no specific route to the required destination.
 
 -setcall Argument
        The format of this option is:
 
        axparms -setcall <serial-device> <callsign>
 
        This changes the callsign associated with the given  serial  device  in
        KISS mode.  The change is permanent until the link is downed or another
        “axparms -setcall” is made.
 
        The interface must already have been attached with  kissattach  to  use
        this option.
 
 -version Argument
        This  option  displays  the version of the AX.25 utilities that axparms
        belongs to.
