m6pack - Attach multiples 6PACK interfaces
m6pack [-l] [-s speed] [-x n_ptmx] [-v] ttyinterface pty ..
allows multiple 6PACK TNCs sharing the same serial port to be used
with the Linux AX.25 kernel software. The AX.25 softare has no support for
multiple TNCs sharing the same serial line. The different ports are addressed
by encoding the port number in the control byte of every 6pack frame.
watches a serial port, and routes 6pack frames to/from the
pseudo ttys. The other side of the pseudo ttys are then attached with
Statistics about the operation of m6pack
may be obtained by sending the
SIGUSR1 signal to the running program. On reception of such a signal

Although mention is made of using pseudo ttys as the last arguments, these
devices may be normal serial ports. However m6pack
provides no way in
which to set their speed, the speed must therefore be set by some other

- This option is for Unix98 PTYs. It allocates
"number" ptys; their names are written to stdout. When -x is
used, the pty arguments are optional.
