       ax25spyd - ax.25 traffic analyzer, dumper and spy daemon


       ax25spyd [-v{v}|--version] [-d] [-f]


       ax25spyd  -  A  daemon,  which analyses, formats and transmit the AX.25
       traffic via sockets to other processes.  Statistics of heard frames and
       a  simple  DX-cluster-spy  is  included. An autospy and mailspy will be
       provided in the future.

       ax25spyd runs in the background. It should be started during  boot  up,
       after  ax.25  init is completed. To see the results, you need a client.
       ax25spy(1) is provided as example, but you can use telnet  too,  or  an
       PR-Terminalprogram e.g. LinKT/MonKT

       (someday  it  will be written) would first read it’s configuration file
       /etc/ax25/ax25mond.conf.  It will then wait for connects  on  the  tcp-
       ports  specified  in  this file (no, it waits on 14090 and 14091). When
       connected, it will transmit all data which it has received on the AX.25
       monitor socket.

       There  is  an  listener  port  on  14091. It offers the monitor data in
       readable format. You can telnet to it (telnet localhost 14091) and  see
       the monitordata.


       -a             alien  mode.   shows  every  packet  from  any  network-
                      interface (except loopback device lo) e.g.  eth0.  There
                      is  a  performance  disadvantage.  ATTENTION: There is a
                      security  problem,  because  everyone  can  connect   to
                      ax25spyd and see all data!  You must know what you do,if
                      you enable this!
                       - You have be warned -

       -d             starts _not_ in Daemon-mode, but in the foreground.  The
                      default  is  to  put  hemself in the background (Daemon-

       -e             allow the SHOWALIEN command (see -a) to be issued by the
                      client.  ATTENTION: This is a security problem!

       -f             (forcenokiss), for kax25 which ommit the transmitting of
                      the KISS-Byte on  the  monitorsocket  (2.2-Kernel).  Try
                      this, if autodetection does not work

       -m             mailspy:  tries  to  detect  bbs-mail in the spied data,
                      collects it and writes it to the  local  mailsystem  via
                      smtp (not working yet)

       -q             be quiet. Usefull when starting in the boot-script

       -s             spy     all:     Write     all     heard     data     to

       -v             be verbose in the syslog

       -vv            be more verbose -

       -V, --version  displays  the  version   number   and   some   copyright
