AX25IPD.CONF(5) Linux Programmer's Manual AX25IPD.CONF(5)

NAME

ax25ipd.conf - Control the operation of ax25ipd.

DESCRIPTION

The ax25ipd.conf file controls the operation of the ax25ipd(8) program. The operation of the config file can best be seen in an example:
#
 
# ax25ipd configuration file for station floyd.vk5xxx.ampr.org
 
#
 
# Select axip transport. 'ip' is what you want for compatibility
 
# with most other gates ...
 
#
 
socket ip
 
#
 
# Set ax25ipd mode of operation. (digi or tnc)
 
#
 
mode tnc
 
#
 
# If you selected digi, you must define a callsign. If you selected
 
# tnc mode, the callsign is currently optional, but this may change
 
# in the future! (2 calls if using dual port kiss)
 
#
 
# mycall vk5xxx-4
 
# mycall2 vk5xxx-5
 
#
 
# In digi mode, you may use an alias. (2 for dual port)
 
#
 
# myalias svwdns
 
# myalias2 svwdn2
 
#
 
# Send an ident every 540 seconds ...
 
#
 
# beacon after 540
 
# btext ax25ip -- tncmode rob/vk5xxx -- Experimental AXIP gateway
 
#
 
# Serial port, ethertap interface, or pipe connected to a kissattach in my case
 
# alternatively, if you have the kernel module bpqether:
 
# if you use tun/tap or ethertap instead of kissattach you may say, without
 
# leading slashes (!! - that's how ax25ipd consideres using the tty kiss
 
# driver or tun/tap or ethertap):
 
# with tun/tap:
 
# device foobar
 
# with ethertap (obsolete):
 
# device tap0
 
# make sure you set a mycall above, or say axparms foobar -setcall te1st
 
# note: the device will be up when you assign an ip address
 
# _after_ starting ax25rtd (which initializes the device), start ax25d
 
# with bpqether or pty, you do not need to care about the speed
 
# tun/tap: as descriped in /usr/src/linux/Documentatioa/networking/tuntap.txt,
 
# make a device # like this:
 
# crw-r--r-- 1 root root 10, 200 Nov 26 13:32 tun
 
# with the command mknod /dev/net/tun c 10 200
 
# As serial port, you could assign physical ports like ttyS0 or ptys.
 
# ax25ipd supports BSD-style pseudo-terminals as well as the Unix98 pty's.
 
# If the tty argument is "/dev/ptmx", then Unix98 behaviour
 
# will automatically take effect. With Unix98 pty's, the slave tty name
 
# could not be forseen. That's why ax25ipd will print the corresponding
 
# slave pty name as a separate line on stdout.
 
#
 
#device ampr
 
device /dev/ttyp0
 
#
 
# Set the device speed
 
#
 
speed 9600
 
#
 
# loglevel 0 - no output
 
# loglevel 1 - config info only
 
# loglevel 2 - major events and errors
 
# loglevel 3 - major events, errors, and AX25 frame trace
 
# loglevel 4 - all events
 
# log 0 for the moment, syslog not working yet ...
 
#
 
loglevel 4
 
#
 
# If we are in digi mode, we might have a real tnc here, so use param to
 
# set the tnc parameters ...
 
#
 
# param 1 20
 
#
 
# Broadcast Address definition. Any of the addresses listed will be forwarded
 
# to any of the routes flagged as broadcast capable routes.
 
#
 
broadcast QST-0 NODES-0
 
#
 
# ax.25 route definition, define as many as you need.
 
# format is route (call/wildcard) (ip host at destination)
 
# ssid of 0 routes all ssid's
 
#
 
# route <destcall> <destaddr> [flags]
 
#
 
# Valid flags are:
 
# b - allow broadcasts to be transmitted via this route
 
# d - this route is the default route
 
#
 
route vk2sut-0 44.136.8.68 b
 
route vk5asf 44.136.188.221 b
 
route vk2abc 44.1.1.1 d
 
#

More to come ...
