rsattach — Start a Rose interface

Synopsis

rsattach [-i inetaddr] [-v] port

Description

Rsattach takes many of the parameters for the port from the rsports(5) file. The port argument is the name of a port as given in the rsports(5) file.

Rsattach tries to find the free Rose device in the system. The device name checked is rose0. If no free Rose 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.
-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.
