       nrports - NET/ROM port configuration file.


       Nrports  is  an  ASCII file that contains information about each of the NET/ROM ports that
       are to be used. When dealing with an NET/ROM utility such as call, it  takes  an  optional
       argument  that is the port name. This port name is a reference to the line within nrports,
       which has the same name. The information on each line contains enough information to  bind
       the  command  to  a  particular  NET/ROM  interface,  this binding is done by matching the
       callsign on the line in nrports with the callsign of the port set by ifconfig.

       The nrports file may contain comments that begin with a # in the first column, or  a  port
       description in the following format, each field being delimited by white space:

              name callsign alias paclen description

       The field descriptions are:

              name          this is the unique NET/ROM port identifier.

              callsign      the callsign of the NET/ROM interface to bind to.

              alias         this is the alias of the NET/ROM port.

              paclen        is the default packet size for this interface.

              description   a  free  format  description of this interface, this field extends to
                            the end of the line. It may contain spaces.
