NAME

       kissnetd - Create a virtual network.

SYNOPSIS

       kissnetd [-f size] [-v] [-p <num> | tty... ]

DESCRIPTION

       Kissnetd allows the creation of a virtual network of AX.25 systems that
       use the KISS protocol. Each tty named on the command line is opened and
       any  KISS  frames  received  on  tty  is copied to the other ttys. This
       allows a number of AX.25 systems to share the same packets.

OPTIONS

       -p num    Automatically allocate num Unix98 slave pty's via  /dev/ptmx.
                 These  are  written  to  stdout  and  could be parsed by your
                 startup  scripts.   "kissnetd  -p  3"   is   an   comfortable
                 alternative to "kissnetd /dev/ptmx /dev/ptmx /dev/ptmx".

       -f size   This  sets  the maximum KISS frame size that the program will
                 handle. The default is 512 bytes which will be adequate under
                 most circumstances.

       -v        Enables  verbose  mode,  tracing  of  data  passed is sent to
                 standard output.
