Xfbb interface with Linbpq

In bpq32.cfg add

TNCPORT
COMPORT=/home/pi/fbbded
TYPE=DED
STREAMS=10
APPLMASK=4
ENDPORT

This creates a DED Host mode TNC on device /home/pi/fbbded, accessible from the LinBPQ Node as Application 3. Change APPLMASK and APPLICATION line if you already use APPL 3

APPLICATION 3,FBB

This allows uses to connect to FBB. You can add the usual Call, Alias and Quality if you want to be able to access FBB directly instead of via the Node.

Change APPLMASK and APPLICATION line if you already use APPL 3

In /usr/local/etc/ax25/fbb/port.sys#

# FBB7.0.8-beta8
#
#Ports TNCs
1 1
#
#Com Interface Adress (Hex) Baud

# End of file.

This tells fbb to use /home/pi/fbbded as a DED Mode TNC.

  1. Hi Soproniradioklub,

    Wa8DED is firmware that is written to run on the eprom of a TNC. And Wa8DED Hostmode is a TNC operating mode that sets the TNC as slave of the computer. The TNC only sends data to the computer when the computer request them.
