ax25-tools 0.0.8

The ax25-tools package contains the tools that you need to get going with AX.25 for Linux.
The ax25-tools package contains the tools that you need to get going with AX.25 for Linux. AX.25 is a network protocol that is used by hamradio operators across packet radio wireless links.

AX.25 is a network protocol that is used for wireless packet networks. Generally when you want to use a network protocol, you need two things:

Operating System Support: Linux has had AX.25, Net/ROM and ROSE support for some time now. Utilities: These manipulate or communicate with the operating system to either setup things or use the protocol.

The set of packages fit the second requirement. The packages have been split into three to make support and development easier.

There is a library that can be used by other programs to do all the low level stuff that you need to talk to the kernel. The idea is that the API of the library stays the same as much as possible even if the kernel changes. It also allows things like name to address translation to occur.

The tools are used to configure an ax.25 enabled computer. They will configure interfaces and assign callsigns to ports as well as Net/ROM and ROSE configuration.

The applications are a set of programs that use the protocols, as opposed to being required for setting things up. The applications are like the client and server programs, to be used by either the system administrator or a normal user.
