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.
