NAME

       baycomepp - Baycom EPP modem driver

SYNOPSIS

       baycomepp  [  -lknvcaz  ]  [-p  portaddr]  [-m modestr] [--epp] [--ecp]
       [--eppconv] [--eppafsk] [--ifname name] [--hwaddr  callsign]  [--ipaddr
       ipaddress] [--netmask netmask] [--broadcast broadcast]

DESCRIPTION

       baycomepp  is  a  user  mode driver for the Baycom EPP modem family. It
       currently supports the conventional EPP  modem  (using  the  IDT  72xxx
       FIFO’s)  and  the FPGA (Xilinx XCS10) variant. The driver automatically
       initializes the FPGA modem depending on the requested mode.   In  order
       to  keep  the  resident  memory  footprint  small (approx 20kBytes plus
       standard system shared libraries like libc), the initialization code is
       contained  in a shared library called baycomfpga_init.so .  This driver
       is able to automatically attach itself to the kernel network stack as a
       network  interface  (usually  called  ax0).  To do this it requires the
       Linux Kernel MKISS driver (enable CONFIG_MKISS).

OPTIONS

       baycomepp accepts the following options:

       -h     --help  Display  an  overview  of  the  available  command  line
              parameters and exit.

       -v     --verbose   Increases  the  verbosity  of  the  output.  May  be
              cumulated.

       -p     --port Specifies the base address of the  EPP  capable  parallel
              port  to  which  the  modem  is  connected. Use the 0x prefix to
              specify hexadecimal numbers.

       -m     --mode Specifies various ‘‘firmware’’ options.

       -n     --no-daemon Do not start up in background as a daemon. Also  log
              received and transmitted packets to stdout.

       -l     --log Log to syslog.

       -k     --kill  Kill  running  baycomepp daemons. Don’t start the driver
              proper.

       --epp  Start up in EPP FSK mode. Requires the FPGA version.

       --eppafsk
              Start up in EPP AFSK mode. Requires the FPGA version.

       --ecp  Start up in ECP FSK mode. Requires the FPGA version.

       --eppconv
              Start up in conventional EPP FSK mode. Requires the conventional
              version.

       --ifname
              Set the name of the interface (requires Linux 2.2.x)

       --hwaddr
              Set the hardware address (callsign) of the interface

       --ipaddr
              Set the ip address of the interface

       --netmask
              Set the netmask of the interface

       --broadcast
              Set the broadcast address of the interface

FIRMWARE OPTIONS

       intclk uses FPGA internal clock; dont use if an external oscillator is
              on board.

       extclk uses the external oscillator; recommended if the internal  modem
              is used, as the frequency of the FPGA oscillator is not accurate
              enough.

       intmodem
              uses the internal modem

       extmodem
              uses a DF9IC type  modem  connected  to  the  high  speed  modem
              connector

       divider=x
              sets    the    clock    divider    for    the   internal   modem
              (baud=fquartz/16/divider)

       loopback
              sets an internal modem loopback

       extstat
              allows extended status readback

       noextstat
              disallows extended status readback
