       axspawn.conf - Control the operation of axspawn.


       The axspawn.conf file controls the operation of the axspawn(8) program.
       The operation of the config file can best be seen in an example:

              # this is /etc/ax25/axspawn.conf
              # allow automatic creation of user accounts
              create    yes
              # guest user if above is ’no’ or everything else
              # fails. Disable with "no"
              guest     ax25
              # group id or name for autoaccount
              group     ax25
              # first user id to use
              first_uid 400
              # maximum user id
              max_uid   2000
              # where to add the home directory for the new user
              home      /home/ax25
              # user’s shell
              shell     /bin/bash
              # bind user id to callsign for outgoing connects.
              associate yes

       The “associate” option has to be used with great care. If a  user  logs
       on it removes any existing callsign from the translation table for this
       userid and replaces it with the callsign and SSID  of  the  user.  This
       will  happen  with  multiple connects (same callsign, different SSIDs),
       too. Unless you want your users to  be  able  to  call  out  from  your
       machine disable “associate”.
