       nrports - NET/ROM port configuration file.


       Nrports  is  an  ASCII file that contains information about each of the
       NET/ROM ports that are to be used. When dealing with an NET/ROM utility
       such as call, it takes an optional argument that is the port name. This
       port name is a reference to the line within nrports, which has the same
       name.  The information on each line contains enough information to bind
       the command to a particular NET/ROM interface, this binding is done  by
       matching  the  callsign on the line in nrports with the callsign of the
       port set by ifconfig.

       The nrports file may contain comments that begin with a # in the  first
       column, or a port description in the following format, each field being
       delimited by white space:

              name callsign alias paclen description

       The field descriptions are:

              name          this is the unique NET/ROM port identifier.

              callsign      the callsign of the NET/ROM interface to bind  to.

              alias         this is the alias of the NET/ROM port.

              paclen        is the default packet size for this interface.

              description   a  free format description of this interface, this
                            field extends to the  end  of  the  line.  It  may
                            contain spaces.
