SYNOPSIS

net2kiss [-sfzva] [-i ifname] ptyname
 

DESCRIPTION

net2kiss takes AX.25 packets from an AX.25 kernel network interface and converts them into a KISS data stream via a pseudo-tty.  

PARAMETERS

ptyname
specifies the path to the pseudo-tty.
 

OPTIONS

-i ifname
specifies the name of the kernel AX.25 network interface. The default is bc0.
-s
tells net2kiss to search by itself for a free pseudoterminal, open the master side and create a symlink named by -p to the slave side.
-f

-v
Verbose output. Displays error messages during operation and decoded packets to stdout.
-z
