aprsisd — APRS-IS
APRS-IS is an Internet-based network which inter-connects various
APRS radio networks throughout the world (and space). The
aprsisd daemon works together with the kernel
axtap(4) driver to establish a connection
to an APRS-IS server and present it as a virtual network interface.
aprsisd can also authenticate to the server and set
an optional filter.
By default the callsign from mycallsign(5) will be used.
aprsisd itself will not produce or consume
packets. A separate application, for example
aprsd(8), must be used for that
aprsisd will send status information,
warnings and errors to syslog(8) using
facility daemon and levels err, warn and info.
aprsisd first appeared in HamBSD XXX.
