ax25ipd - AX.25 into IP Encapsulator
is an RFC1226 compliant daemon capable of providing the
encapsualtion necessary to send and receive AX.25 traffic across an IP
Normally invoked as part of the boot order network initialisation,
is capable of talking directly to a serial port connected tnc,
or over a pipe to a linux AX.25 port. KAM DE Dual Port Kiss is also supported.
can be run as a pure encapsulator, or as a digital repeater with
a functional callsign. Destination IP addresses are determined from a
hardcoded map of callsign/IP Address pairs.
defaults to using /etc/ax25/ax25ipd.conf
as its config
- Display the version.
- Display a summary of the command line options.
- Set the logging level to NUM.
- Use the configuration file named by FILE instead of the
- Use ttydevice instead of the configured. This is useful
because on systems with unix98 PTYs the device is allocated dynamicaly and
thus the name is not predictable.
- Do not become a daemon. Run in foreground.
Routing needs to be looked at seriously, the method of routing is a real hack,
and improvements to it have only added to the hack.
Logging needs to be properly implemented.
Command line parsing needs to be properly implemented.
should be part of the Linux AX.25 kernel support probably :-)
