       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.
