gnokiid: create a virtual modem for old Nokia mobile phones
NAMEgnokiid - create a virtual modem for old Nokia mobile phones
is a tool from the gnokii tool suite used to create a virtual modem device with a Nokia portable telephone. The virtual modem device is usually accessed via a symbolic link called /dev/gnokii (created automatically by mgnokiidev(8)). Please note that you don't need a virtual modem when you have real modem accepting AT Hayes commands (most of the modern phones). gnokiid was written for the phones that supported data transfer but didn't expose AT layer (namely Nokia 6110, 6130, 6150, 5110, 5130).
After gnokiid has created the virtual modem, it can be accessed like any other Hayes-compatible modem by such programs as the terminal program minicom(1) or the PPP daemon pppd(8) to make standard data connections to remote computers.
gnokii is a Linux/Unix tool suite and (eventually) modem/fax driver for Nokia mobile phones, released under the GPL.
gnokii supports most phones from the 3810/8110 and 5110/6110 series, details including bugs specific to each series appear in the files Docs/README-3810 and Docs/README-6110 respectively.
If called without any options, gnokiid will set up a virtual modem device using the settings in gnokii(1) config file (if it exists). Otherwise,
- print out a short usage message
- print out version, copyright, phone, and serial device info
- uses STDIN/STDOUT for a virtual modem
DIAGNOSTICSVarious error messages are printed to STDERR.
