       ax25ipd - AX.25 into IP Encapsulator


       ax25ipd [options]


       ax25ipd is an RFC1226 compliant daemon capable of providing the encapsualtion necessary to
       send and receive AX.25 traffic across an IP transport.

       Normally invoked as part of the boot order network initialisation, ax25ipd is  capable  of
       talking directly to a serial port connected tnc, or over a pipe to a linux AX.25 port. KAM
       DE Dual Port Kiss is also supported.

       ax25ipd can be run as a pure encapsulator, or as a  digital  repeater  with  a  functional
       callsign.  Destination  IP  addresses  are  determined from a hardcoded map of callsign/IP
       Address pairs.

       ax25ipd defaults to using /etc/ax25/ax25ipd.conf as its config file.

       -h,--help Display a summary of the command line options.

                 Set the logging level to NUM.

                 Use the configuration file named by FILE instead of the default.

                 Use ttydevice instead of the configured. This is useful because on systems  with
                 unix98  PTYs  the  device  is  allocated  dynamicaly  and  thus  the name is not

                 Do not become a daemon. Run in foreground.

       Routing needs to be looked at seriously, the  method  of  routing  is  a  real  hack,  and
       improvements to it have only added to the hack.

       Logging needs to be properly implemented.

       Command line parsing needs to be properly implemented.

       ax25ipd should be part of the Linux AX.25 kernel support probably :-)
