nrattach — Start a NET/ROM interface


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


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.


-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.

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.
