AXCTL(8)                 Linux System Managers Manual                 AXCTL(8)



NAME
       axctl - Configure/Kill running AX.25 connections.

SYNOPSIS
       axctl  [-v]  port  dest src -window|-t1|-t2|-t3|-n2|-idle|-paclen|-kill
       [parm]

DESCRIPTION
       The axctl command is designed  to  be  a  multi-function  command  that
       allows  miscellaneous commands to be issued to the Linux AX.25 protocol
       layer for existing AX.25 connections. The connection is uniquely  iden-
       tified  via  the  combination  of port, destination callsign and source
       callsign, with that information the kernel is able to change the param-
       eters, or abort(3,7) the connection.

       Many  of  the options are similar to those found in(1,8) axparms and perform
       the same function. Only one parameter may be changed on each invokation
       of axctl.

OPTIONS
       -v                  Displays the version(1,3,5) number.

       -window window      Sets the window size for the AX.25 connection.

       -t1 t1-timeout      Sets  the  initial  T1  timeout(1,3x,3x cbreak) value for the AX.25
                           connection, the value is given in(1,8) seconds.

       -t2 t2-timeout      Sets the T2 timeout(1,3x,3x cbreak) value for the AX.25 connection,
                           the value is given in(1,8) seconds.

       -t3 t3-timeout      Sets  the T3 timeout(1,3x,3x cbreak) value for the AX.25 connected,
                           the value is given in(1,8) seconds.

       -n2 n2-count        Sets the maximum number of tries for the AX.25 con-
                           nection.

       -idle idle-timeout  Sets  the  value  for  the idle timer for the AX.25
                           connection, the value is in(1,8) minutes.

       -paclen paclength   Sets the maximum packet length that may  be  trans-
                           mitted on the AX.25 connection.

       -kill               Will abort(3,7) an existing AX.25 connection.
