Here's an example on setting up an AX.25 network interface in Debian GNU/Linux. This works for Ubuntu too.
aptitude install ax25-tools
# /etc/ax25/axports # # The format of this file is: # # name callsign speed paclen window description # fubar MYCALL-15 19200 255 2 144,800 MHz APRS
# The fubar network interface. manual ax0 iface ax0 inet static address 10.36.99.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 10.36.99.0 broadcast 10.36.99.255 # Bind to the port. hwaddress ax25 MYCALL-15 # Create the port before starting the iface. pre-up kissattach /dev/ttyS0 fubar 10.36.99.1 # Delete the port after stopping the iface. Make sure that it dies # and lock file is removed. post-down pkill kissattach || pkill -9 kissattach ; rm -f /var/lock/LCK..ttyS0
aptitude remove samba
Now you should be able to start the interface by saying
sudo ifup ax0
and stop it by saying
sudo ifdown ax0
If you want the interface to start at boot, change the line
in /etc/network/intefaces and the magic should happen.
