NAME

       nrattach - Start a NET/ROM interface

SYNOPSIS

       nrattach [-i inetaddr] [-m mtu] [-v] port

DESCRIPTION

       Nrattach  takes many of the parameters for the port from the nrports(5)
       file. The paclen parameter is used for the device mtu unless overridden
       by a value on the command line. The port argument is the name of a port
       as given in the nrports(5) file.

       Nrattach tries to find the first free NET/ROM device in the system. The
       devices  checked  are  nr0,  nr1, nr2 and nr3 in that order. If no free
       NET/ROM device is available an  error  is  generated  and  the  program
       terminates.

OPTIONS

       -i inetaddr     Set the internet address of the interface. This address
                       may either be a dotted decimal address or a host  name.

       -m mtu          Sets  the  mtu  of  the interface. If this value is not
                       given then the value is taken from the paclen parameter
                       in nrports.

       -v              Display the version.

BUGS

       The program can be run many times with the same arguments creating many
       instances of the same attributes on different devices. Not a good idea.
