NAME

       axports - AX.25 port configuration file.

DESCRIPTION

       Axports  is  an  ASCII file that contains information about each of the
       physical AX.25 ports that are to be used. When dealing  with  an  AX.25
       utility  such  as  call, it takes an optional argument that is the port
       name. This port name is a reference to the line within  axports,  which
       has  that  name  as  its  first  argument. The information on each line
       contains enough  information  to  bind  the  command  to  a  particular
       physical AX.25 interface, this binding is done by matching the callsign
       on the line in axports with the callsign of the port set by kissattach.

       The lines within axports must either be a comment  line,  which  starts
       with  a  #  in the first column, or a port description in the following
       format, each field being delimited by white space:

              name callsign speed paclen window description

       The field descriptions are:

              name          is the unique identifier of the port. This is  the
                            name  given  as  the  port argument of many of the
                            AX.25 support programs.

              callsign      the callsign of the physical interface to bind to.

              speed         this is the speed of interface, a  value  of  zero
                            means that no speed will be set by kissattach(8).

              paclen        is  the  default  maximum  packet  size  for  this
                            interface.

              window        the default window size for this interface.

              description   a free format description of this interface,  this
                            field  extends  to the end of the line. This field
                            may contain spaces.
