bpqparms - Configure BPQ ethernet devices.
bpqparms device [-a ethaddr] [-d ethaddr] [-vV]
Bpqparms 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.
-a ethaddr Allows the setting of which ethernet address will be
accepted by the BPQ Ethernet device.
-d ethaddr If specified on its own, will set the destination
ethernet address will be used for transmitting and for
receiving of BPQ ethernet packets. An address of
“broadcast” sets it to the ethernet broadcast address.
-v Displays the version number.
-V The original version messages.
