axports - AX.25 port configuration file.
Axports is an ASCII file that contains information about each of the
physical AX.25 ports that are to be used. When dealing with an AX.25
utility such as call, it takes an optional argument that is the port
name. This port name is a reference to the line within axports, which
has that name as its first argument. The information on each line
contains enough information to bind the command to a particular
physical AX.25 interface, this binding is done by matching the callsign
on the line in axports with the callsign of the port set by kissattach.
The lines within axports must either be a comment line, which starts
with a # in the first column, or a port description in the following
format, each field being delimited by white space:
name callsign speed paclen window description
The field descriptions are:
name is the unique identifier of the port. This is the
name given as the port argument of many of the
AX.25 support programs.
callsign the callsign of the physical interface to bind to.
speed this is the speed of interface, a value of zero
means that no speed will be set by kissattach(8).
paclen is the default maximum packet size for this
window the default window size for this interface.
description a free format description of this interface, this
field extends to the end of the line. This field
may contain spaces.
call(1), ax25(4), axparms(8), kissattach(8).
