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
- -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.
- Display the version.
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.
