       /etc/ax25/axports - AX.25 port configuration file.


       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
       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

       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

              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.  This is not  in
                            any way related to actual device identities, just unique

              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.
