NAME

       rsdwnlnk - User exit from the ROSE network.

SYNOPSIS

       rsdwnlnk <port> <call>

DESCRIPTION

       The  rdwnplnk program allows a user to leave the ROSE network using the
       standard pseudo-digipeating method. Recent Linux kernels are  aware  of
       this   form  of  operation  and  the  ax25d  program  can  create  such
       connections. The normal mode of operation of a ROSE switch is  to  have
       one  ROSE  address  (ie  port) per physical AX.25 port.  Therefore ROSE
       users coming in on a given ROSE port will come out  of  the  associated
       AX.25 port.

       To  use rsdwnlnk you need an entry in ax25d.conf to listen for incoming
       ROSE connections to any callsigns that are  not  matched  by  the  more
       specific  ROSE  entries.  In the example below, I will be listening for
       ROSE connections on my ROSE port rs144, the  exiting  AX.25  connection
       will  be  via  the  associated  AX.25  port,  144,  using  the callsign
       KE4GAJ-10. Please note that the callsign should be on the same line  as
       the  rest  of the command, it may be wrapped onto the next line on your
       screen.

       #
       {* VIA rs144}
       NOCALL  * * * * * * L
       default * * * * * * - root /usr/sbin/rsdwnlnk rsdwnlnk 144 KE4GAJ-10
       #

       There would typically be one rsdwnlnk per  ROSE  port.  The  associated
       program for entering a ROSE network is rsuplnk.

       All  errors  generated  by rsdwnlnk are written to the system debug log
       file.
