bpqparms - Configure BPQ ethernet devices.
bpqparms device [-a ethaddr] [-d ethaddr] [-vV]
allows the setting of the BPQ Ethernet options for a particular device. Each
BPQ Ethernet device appears as a device named bpq0...bpqN which overlays the
original Ethernet device, usually eth0...ethN. This device is an AX.25
device driver and allows AX.25 frames to be transmitted over an Ethernet to
another machine using the same protocol. The default for the device is to
send and receive BPQ Ethernet packets to the broadcast address. This
program replaces the previous "axparms -dev" option.
Allows the setting of which ethernet address will be accepted by the BPQ
If specified on its own, will set the destination ethernet address will be
used for transmitting and for receiving of BPQ ethernet packets. An address
of "broadcast" sets it to the ethernet broadcast address.
