gnokiid - create a virtual modem for Nokia portable phones
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.
