Linbpq


Brian Clark
 

I am using a TNC Pi and would like to use Linbpq.

My AXPORTS file looks like this:

# /etc/ax25/axports

#

# The format of this file is:

#

# name callsign speed paclen window description

#

1 KF6FES-1 19200 236 TNC 1 (19200 bps)

2 KF6FES-2 19200 236 TNC 2 (19200 bps)

(It appears that the # symbol is an un-remming command for a line in the file, and if that is the case, should I rem the 2nd TNC since I only have one TNC?)


I saw this in a posting and wondering if I need these lines in my AXPORTS file and if so, what does the 16, 17 indicate? Are those hex address designations?

./i2ckiss 1 16 1 10.0.0.1 and

./i2ckiss 1 17 2 10.0.0.2

When I run ./linbpq&, this is what appears:

But according to documentation that I have, it should look like this:

Is it because Linbpq is looking for a file called /dev/ttyAMA0 as opposed to /dev/tty01?

Also mincom won't open, and I think I need to use the command chmod 777 minicom
