nrsdrv: KISS to NET/ROM serial converter


nrsdrv - KISS to NET/ROM serial converter


nrsdrv [-f] [-l] [-s speed] [-v] kissdev nrsdev


Nrsdrv is a program designed to convert from the KISS protocol to the NET/ROM serial protocol used by real NET/ROM's and TheNet's. The protocols are fairly similar, although the NET/ROM serial protocol does include a one byte checksum which KISS does not.

Typically nrsdrv will be attached to one end of a pseudo-tty of which the other end has been attached to a KISS capable program. The NET/ROM device will probably be a real serial port attached to a TNC or a Hexipus. The full specification of the NET/ROM serial protocol can be found in the original Software 2000 documentation that accompanied NET/ROMs.


Flow control enabled for use with a Hexipus, the default is disabled. See the file hexipus.txt in the source distribution for wiring details.

Log messages to the system log, the default is not to.
-s speed
