mgnokiidev - links /dev/gnokii to a virtual modem
mgnokiidev is a tool from the Gnokii tool suite used to create the link
/dev/gnokii that points to a pseudo-tty (/dev/pts/?).
It is called after gnokiid has created a virtual modem that is attached
to the pty. It’s operation is transparent under normal usage as
gnokiid takes care of calling it when required.
Since mgnokiidev must modifiy files in /dev, it must be either run as
root or SUID root. The latter is the preferred method. Normally the
mgnokiidev binary is chmod 4750 and owned by root.gnokii.
Gnokii is a Linux/Unix tool suite and (eventually) modem/fax driver for
Nokia mobile phones, released under the GPL.

details including bugs specific to each series appear in the files
Docs/README-3810 and Docs/README-6110 respectively.
