rsuplnk - User entry into the ROSE network.
rsuplnk [-q] <port>
The rsuplnk program allows a user to gain entry into the ROSE network
using the standard pseudo-digipeating method. Recent Linux kernels are
aware of this form of operation and the ax25d program can listen for
such connections. The normal mode of operation of a ROSE switch is to
have one ROSE address (ie port) per physical AX.25 port. Therefore
ROSE users coming in on a given AX.25 port will appear as if they come
from the associated ROSE port. This is the reason for the need for a
ROSE port as an argument.
To use rsuplnk you need an entry in ax25d.conf to listen for incoming
connections. In the example below, I will be listening for ROSE
connections on my AX.25 port 144 using the callsign KE4GAJ-10 and the
ROSE port associated with the AX.25 port is rs144.
[KE4GAJ-10* VIA 144]
NOCALL * * * * * * L
default * * * * * * - root /usr/sbin/rsuplnk rsuplnk rs144
There would typically be one rsuplnk per user access AX.25 port. The
associated program for exiting a ROSE network is rsdwnlnk.
All errors generated by rsuplnk are written to the system debug log
-q Supresses the messages generated by rsuplnk when making the
rose(4), ax25d.conf(5), ax25d(8), rsdwnlnk(8), rose_call(8).
