NAME

       mgnokiidev - links /dev/gnokii to a virtual modem

SYNOPSIS

       mgnokiidev /dev/pts/?

DESCRIPTION

       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.

       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.
