       gnokiid - create a virtual modem for Nokia portable phones



       gnokiid [--help|--version|--debug]


       gnokiid  is  a tool from the Gnokii tool suite used to create a virtual
       modem device with a Nokia portable telephone.  The virtual modem device
       is  usually  accessed  via  a symbolic link called /dev/gnokii (created
       automatically by mgnokiidev(8)).

       After gnokiid has created the virtual modem, it can  be  accessed  like
       any  other  Hayes-compatible  modem  by  such  programs as the terminal
       program minicom(1) or the PPP daemon  pppd(8)  to  make  standard  data
       connections to remote computers.

       The  full  range  of portable telephone functions (SMS messaging, phone
       book, operator logos, etc.) are accessed using the command-line program
       gnokii(1) or the graphical interface program xgnokii(1x).

       Gnokii is a Linux/Unix tool suite and (eventually) modem/fax driver for
       Nokia mobile phones, released under the GPL.

       Gnokii supports most phones from the 3810/8110  and  5110/6110  series,
       details  including  bugs  specific  to  each series appear in the files
       Docs/README-3810 and Docs/README-6110 respectively.


       If called without any options, gnokiid will  set  up  a  virtual  modem
       device using the settings in /etc/gnokiirc or in the user’s ~/.gnokiirc
       (if it exists).  Otherwise,

       --help print out a short usage message

              print out version, copyright, phone, and serial device info

              uses STDIN/STDOUT for a virtual modem


       Various error messages are printed to STDERR.
