       axparms - Configure AX.25 interfaces.


       axparms --assoc|--forward|--route|--setcall|--version ...


       The  axparms  command is designed to be a multi-function command that allows miscellaneous
       commands to be issued to the Linux AX.25 protocol layer. It includes the functionality  of
       axassociate  and  axsetcall  which  this  command  superceedes. The different modes of the
       command are chosen by the first argument. Sunsequent arguments depend upon  this  argument
       and so no generalised command format can be given.

--assoc Argument

       The format of this option is:

       axparms --assoc <callsign> <username>
       axparms --assoc <callsign> delete
       axparms --assoc policy [default|deny]
       axparms --assoc show

       This  option  mainpulates  the kernel uid/callsign mapping table, allowing callsigns to be
       associated and dis-associated with a user. The policy option permits the superuser to have
       all other uid's either default to the actual port name, or to block traffic.

       At  power  up  the  table  is  blank  and  the policy is 'default', which is thus backward

--forward Argument

       Allows the use of many receivers with one transmitter, known as packet forwarding in  many
       systems. The format of this command is:

       axparms --forward <portfrom> <portto>
       axparms --forward <portfrom> delete

       Any  packets  to  be transmitted on port portfrom will be transmitted on port portto. This
       will stay in force until the second form of the command is issued which  will  remove  the

--route Argument

       This  option  allows  the  internal  AX.25  routing table to be manipulated. This table is
       available for reading in  /proc/net/ax25_route,  and  will  be  built  up  dynamically  by
       stations heard. However it is possible to add, delete and list entries via this option.

       The formats of this option are:

       axparms --route add <port> <callsign> [<digis>] [--ipmode V|D]
       axparms --route del <port> <callsign>
       axparms --route list

       Routes  added  via  this  command will not be removed from the internal routing table when
       they are “old” as normal entries are. The --ipmode option sets mode vc  or  mode  datagram
       for this destination.

       If  the  <callsign>  argument is set to “default” then this will set the default route for
       all outgoing AX.25 connections which will be used when there is no specific route  to  the
       required destination.

--setcall Argument

       The format of this option is:

       axparms --setcall <interface> <callsign>

       This changes the callsign associated at the given physical ax25 interface.

       Cave:  The  interface  name  is  not  the  symbolic  port  name from axports, but the real
       interface name (from ifconfig(8)): ax0, ax1, .., sp0, .., bpq0, ... etc..

       The change is permanent as long as the interface exists, or another “axparms --setcall” is

       The  interface  has to exist already in order to use this option; it may be in state UP or

--version Argument

       This option displays the version of the AX.25 utilities that axparms belongs to.
