bpqparms - Configure BPQ ethernet devices.
bpqparms device [-a ethaddr] [-d ethaddr] [-vV]
allows the setting of the BPQ Ethernet options for a particular
device. Each BPQ Ethernet device appears as a device named bpq0...bpqN which
overlays the original Ethernet device, usually eth0...ethN. This device is an
AX.25 device driver and allows AX.25 frames to be transmitted over an Ethernet
to another machine using the same protocol. The default for the device is to
send and receive BPQ Ethernet packets to the broadcast address. This program
replaces the previous “axparms -dev” option.

address will be used for transmitting and for receiving of BPQ ethernet
packets. An address of “broadcast” sets it to the ethernet
