NAME

       axctl - Configure/Kill running AX.25 connections.

SYNOPSIS

       axctl  [-v]  port  dest src -window|-t1|-t2|-t3|-n2|-idle|-paclen|-kill
       [parm]

DESCRIPTION

       The axctl command is designed  to  be  a  multi-function  command  that
       allows  miscellaneous commands to be issued to the Linux AX.25 protocol
       layer for  existing  AX.25  connections.  The  connection  is  uniquely
       identified via the combination of port, destination callsign and source
       callsign, with that information  the  kernel  is  able  to  change  the
       parameters, or abort the connection.

       Many  of  the options are similar to those found in axparms and perform
       the same function. Only one parameter may be changed on each invokation
       of axctl.

OPTIONS

       -v                  Displays the version number.

       -window window      Sets the window size for the AX.25 connection.

       -t1 t1-timeout      Sets  the  initial  T1  timeout value for the AX.25
                           connection, the value is given in seconds.

       -t2 t2-timeout      Sets the T2 timeout value for the AX.25 connection,
                           the value is given in seconds.

       -t3 t3-timeout      Sets  the T3 timeout value for the AX.25 connected,
                           the value is given in seconds.

       -n2 n2-count        Sets the maximum number  of  tries  for  the  AX.25
                           connection.

       -idle idle-timeout  Sets  the  value  for  the idle timer for the AX.25
                           connection, the value is in minutes.
