NAME

       rsuplnk - User entry into the ROSE network.

SYNOPSIS

       rsuplnk [-q] <port>

DESCRIPTION

       The  rsuplnk  program allows a user to gain entry into the ROSE network using the standard
       pseudo-digipeating method. Recent Linux kernels are aware of this form  of  operation  and
       the  ax25d program can listen for 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 AX.25 port will appear as if they come from the associated ROSE
       port. This is the reason for the need for a ROSE port as an argument.

       To use rsuplnk you need an entry in ax25d.conf to listen for incoming connections. In  the
       example  below,  I  will  be listening for ROSE connections on my AX.25 port 144 using the
       callsign KE4GAJ-10 and the ROSE port associated with the AX.25 port is rs144.

       #
       [KE4GAJ-10* VIA 144]
       NOCALL  * * * * * * L
       default * * * * * * - root /usr/sbin/rsuplnk rsuplnk rs144
       #

       There would typically be one rsuplnk per user access AX.25 port.  The  associated  program
       for exiting a ROSE network is rsdwnlnk.

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

OPTIONS

       -q      Supresses the messages generated by rsuplnk when making the connection.

FILES
