       gnokiid - create a virtual modem for old Nokia mobile phones



       gnokiid [--help|--version|--debug]



       is  a  tool  from the gnokii tool suite used to create a virtual modem device with a Nokia
       portable telephone.  The virtual modem device is usually  accessed  via  a  symbolic  link
       called  /dev/gnokii  (created  automatically by mgnokiidev(8)). Please note that you don't
       need a virtual modem when you have real modem accepting AT Hayes  commands  (most  of  the
       modern phones). gnokiid was written for the phones that supported data transfer but didn't
       expose AT layer (namely Nokia 6110, 6130, 6150, 5110, 5130).

       After gnokiid  has  created  the  virtual  modem,  it  can  be  accessed  like  any  other
       Hayes-compatible  modem  by  such  programs  as the terminal program minicom(1) or the PPP
       daemon pppd(8) to make standard data connections to remote computers.

       The full range of portable telephone functions (SMS messaging, phone book, operator logos,
       etc.)  are  accessed  using  the command-line program gnokii(1) or the graphical interface
       program xgnokii(1x).

       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


       If  called  without  any  options,  gnokiid  will  set up a virtual modem device using the
       settings in gnokii(1) config file (if it exists).  Otherwise,

       --help print out a short usage message

              print out version, copyright, phone, and serial device info

              uses STDIN/STDOUT for a virtual modem


       Various error messages are printed to STDERR.
