nrattach: Start a NET/ROM interface

NAME

nrattach - Start a NET/ROM interface

SYNOPSIS

nrattach [-i inetaddr] [-m mtu] [-v] port

DESCRIPTION

Nrattach takes many of the parameters for the port from the nrports(5) file. The paclen parameter is used for the device mtu unless overridden by a value on the command line. The port argument is the name of a port as given in the nrports(5) file.

Nrattach tries to find the first free NET/ROM device in the system. The devices checked are nr0, nr1, nr2 and nr3 in that order. If no free NET/ROM device is available an error is generated and the program terminates.

OPTIONS

-i inetaddr
Set the internet address of the interface. This address may either be a dotted decimal address or a host name.
-m mtu
Sets the mtu of the interface. If this value is not given then the value is taken from the paclen parameter in nrports.
-v
Display the version.

BUGS

The program can be run many times with the same arguments creating many instances of the same attributes on different devices. Not a good idea.
