gnokiid - create a virtual modem for old Nokia mobile phones
is a tool from the gnokii tool suite used to create a virtual modem device with
a Nokia portable telephone. The virtual modem device is usually accessed via a
symbolic link called /dev/gnokii (created automatically by
(8)). Please note that you don't need a virtual modem when
you have real modem accepting AT Hayes commands (most of the modern phones).
gnokiid was written for the phones that supported data transfer but didn't
expose AT layer (namely Nokia 6110, 6130, 6150, 5110, 5130).
has created the virtual modem, it can be accessed like any
other Hayes-compatible modem by such programs as the terminal program
(1) or the PPP daemon pppd
(8) to make standard data
connections to remote computers.
The full range of portable telephone functions (SMS messaging, phone book,
operator logos, etc.) are accessed using the command-line program
(1) or the graphical interface program xgnokii
gnokii is a Linux/Unix tool suite and (eventually) modem/fax driver for Nokia
mobile phones, released under the GPL.
gnokii supports most phones from the 3810/8110 and 5110/6110 series, details
including bugs specific to each series appear in the files Docs/README-3810
and Docs/README-6110 respectively.
If called without any options, gnokiid
will set up a virtual modem device
using the settings in gnokii(1) config file (if it exists). Otherwise,
- print out a short usage message
- print out version, copyright, phone, and serial device
- uses STDIN/STDOUT for a virtual modem
Various error messages are printed to STDERR.
