       gnokiid - create a virtual modem for old Nokia mobile phones



       gnokiid [--help|--version|--debug]



       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 mgnokiidev(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).

       After gnokiid has created the virtual modem, it can  be  accessed  like
       any  other  Hayes-compatible  modem  by  such  programs as the terminal
       program minicom(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
       gnokii(1) or the graphical interface program xgnokii(1x).

       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).
