allows dual port TNCs or multiple TNCs sharing the same serial port to be
used with the Linux AX.25 kernel software. The AX.25 softare has no support
for dual port TNCs or multiple TNCs charing the same serial line. The
different ports are addressed by encoding the port number in the control
byte of every kiss frame.
watches a serial port, and routes kiss frames to/from the pseudo ttys. The
other side of the pseudo ttys are then attached with

Although mention is made of using pseudo ttys as the last arguments,
these devices may be normal serial ports. However
provides no way in which to set their speed, the speed must therefore be set
by some other method.
This enables a one-byte checksum on each incoming and outgoing KISS frame on
the serial port. This checksum is used by G8BPQ KISS roms to maintain the
integrity of KISS frames.
This enables a 16-bit checksum on each incoming and outgoing KISS frame on
the serial port. This checksum is used by Flexnet Node and BayCom Mailbox
to maintain the integrity of KISS frames.
Enables hardware handshaking on the serial line to the TNC. The KISS
specification states that no hardware flow control shall be used so the
default is off. But some KISS implementations do use hardware flow control.
Enables system logging, the default is off.
Set the speed of the serial port.
Enables polling. Polled mode is used by G8BPQ KISS roms to prevent
contention on systems where multiple TNCs share the same serial line.
Pollrate is interval between polls (in 100ms units).
