This page documents the obsolete axattach command. Axcommand has been renamed to kissattach already for ax25-utils 2.0.12c which was released about 1996-12-25.


axattach - Attach a KISS interface


axattach [-i inetaddr] [-l] [-m mtu] [-v] tty port


Attach a SLIP interface in KISS mode to what is normally a tty line connected to a TNC in KISS mode. This program will turn itself into a background process. To down an interface send its axattach process a SIGKILL.
Axattach takes many of the parameters for the port from the axports(5) file. If the speed parameter in the file is not equal to zero then it is used for the serial port speed, a zero value means that no speed is set. The paclen parameter is used for the device mtu unless overridde by a value on the command line.
The tty argument will typically be that of a serial port with a KISS TNC attached, although it could be a psuedo tty or a KISS port emulator such as an SCC card. The port arguments is the name of a port as given in the axports(5) file.


-i inetaddr Set the internet address of the interface. This address may either be a dotted decimal address or a host name.
-l Log messages to the system log, the default is not to.
-m mtu Sets the mtu of the interface. If this value is not given then the value is taken from the paclen parameter in axports.
-v Display the version.


kill(1), stty(1), ax25(4), axparms(4), axports(5), ifconfig(8).
