NAME

       bpqparms - Configure BPQ ethernet devices.

SYNOPSIS

       bpqparms device [-a ethaddr] [-d ethaddr] [-vV]

DESCRIPTION

       Bpqparms  allows  the  setting  of  the  BPQ  Ethernet  options  for  a
       particular device. Each BPQ Ethernet device appears as a  device  named
       bpq0...bpqN  which  overlays  the  original  Ethernet  device,  usually
       eth0...ethN. This device is an AX.25 device  driver  and  allows  AX.25
       frames  to be transmitted over an Ethernet to another machine using the
       same protocol. The default for the device is to send  and  receive  BPQ
       Ethernet  packets  to  the broadcast address. This program replaces the
       previous “axparms -dev” option.

OPTIONS

       -a ethaddr     Allows the setting of which  ethernet  address  will  be
                      accepted by the BPQ Ethernet device.

       -d ethaddr     If  specified  on  its  own,  will  set  the destination
                      ethernet address will be used for transmitting  and  for
                      receiving   of  BPQ  ethernet  packets.  An  address  of
                      “broadcast” sets it to the ethernet broadcast address.

       -v             Displays the version number.

       -V             The original version messages.
