     atmconfig -- ATM configuration tool

     atmconfig [-htv] [command [sub-command [...]]] [options] [arg ...]

     The atmconfig tool	is used	to configure the Netgraph ATM network sub-sys-

     The command line of atmconfig generally consists of common	options	fol-
     lowed by a	command	string,	optionally followed by sub-command strings,
     optional command specific options and command specific arguments.	Com-
     mands and sub-commands as well as command specific	options	may be abbre-
     viated as long as there is	only one match possible.

   Common Options
     The following common options change the overall behaviour of atmconfig:

     -h	     Print a very short	usage info and exit.

     -t	     Several show-type commands	output a header	and then several lines
	     of	information.  If this option is	given, the header is omitted,
	     simplifying the parsing of	the output.

     -v	     Be	more verbose.

   Obtaining Help
     The help command has a number of useful sub-commands.

     To	get general help use:
	   atmconfig help

     To	get a list of available	commands use:
	   atmconfig help commands

     To	get a list of available	sub-commands use:
	   atmconfig help command

     or	(if there are deeper levels of sub-commands):
	   atmconfig help command sub-command ...

     To	get a list of options and arguments for	a command use:
	   atmconfig help command sub-command ...
     (given that there are no further sub-command levels).

     To	get a list of common options use:
	   atmconfig help options

   The diag Command
     The diag command allows the inspection of the ATM interfaces on the local
     host and the modification of device parameters.  Sub-commands are:	list
     (print a list of interfaces), config (print hardware configuration), phy
     (access PHY chip),	stats (print statistics) and vcc (print	list of	VCCs).

     atmconfig diag list
	     This sub-command lists all	ATM interfaces in the system.  It
	     takes no options or arguments.

     atmconfig diag config [-atm] [-hardware] [device ...]
	     This command prints the configuration of ATM interfaces.  If no
	     device is given, all devices are listed, otherwise	only the spec-
	     ified devices.  The option	-atm instructs the command to print
	     ATM layer configuration parameters	like the number	of VCI and VPI
	     bits, whereas the -hardware option	requests card specific infor-
	     mation like the vendor or the serial number.  If none of the op-
	     tions is given, the defaults is to	assume -atm.

     atmconfig diag phy	print [-numeric] device
	     This command prints the PHY registers in a	(potential) human com-
	     prehensible format.  If -numeric is given,	the format is hex
	     bytes.  Otherwise,	textual	representation will be printed.

     atmconfig diag phy	show [device ...]
	     This sub-command prints static information	about the PHY device
	     used in the ATM card like the type	of the PHY and the media.

     atmconfig diag phy	set device reg mask val
	     This sub-command allows one to change bits	in PHY registers.
	     This should be used with great care.  The bits of the given PHY
	     chip register for which the corresponding bit in mask is one are
	     set to the	values of the corresponding bits in val.  All register
	     bits that have a zero in mask are written back with their origi-
	     nal value.

     atmconfig diag phy	stats [-clear] device
	     Print the PHY statistics for the given device.  When the optional
	     -clear is given, the statistics are cleared atomically.

     atmconfig diag vcc	[-abr] [-channel] [-traffic] [device]
	     Retrieve the list of currently active channels on either all or
	     the specified interfaces.	For each channel, the following	infor-
	     mation is printed depending on the	options	(default is -channel).

	     -abr      Print ABR specific traffic parameters: ICR, TBE,	NRM,
		       TRM, ADTF, RIF, RDF, CDF.

	     -channel  Print basic information:	VPI, VCI, AAL, traffic type,
		       MTU and flags.

	     -traffic  Print traffic parameters: PCR, SCR, MBS,	MCR.

     atmconfig diag stats device
	     Print driver specific statistics.

   The natm Command
     The natm command is used to change	natmip(4) routes on the	local host.
     The sub-commands for the routing table are: add (to add a new route),
     delete (to	delete an existing route) and show (to print the currently in-
     stalled NATM routes).

     atmconfig natm add	dest device vpi	vci encaps
     atmconfig natm add	dest device vpi	vci encaps ubr [pcr]
     atmconfig natm add	dest device vpi	vci encaps cbr pcr
     atmconfig natm add	dest device vpi	vci encaps vbr pcr scr mbs
     atmconfig natm add	dest device vpi	vci encaps abr pcr mcr icr tbe nrm trm
	     adtf rif rdf cdf
	     Add a new route to	the routing table.  The	destination address
	     (the address on the other end of the link)	is given in dest.  The
	     device, vpi and vci arguments are the name	of the ATM device and
	     the VPI and VCI values for	the link.  The encaps argument may be
	     either AAL5 or LLC/SNAP both of which specify AAL5	encapsulation,
	     the first one without additional encapsulation, the second	one
	     with LLC/SNAP headers.  The first two forms of the	command	add an
	     UBR (unspecified bit rate)	channel, where the second form allows
	     the optional specification	of a peak cell rate (PCR).  The	third
	     form adds a CBR (constant bit rate) channel where a PCR must be
	     given.  The fourth	form adds a VBR	(variable bit rate) channel.
	     The arguments are the peak	cell rate, the sustainable cell	rate
	     and the maximum bursts size.  The last form of the	command	adds
	     an	ABR (available bit rate) channel.

     atmconfig natm delete dest
     atmconfig natm delete device vpi vci
	     This commands deletes an NATM route.  The route may be specified
	     either by the destination address or by the device, vpi and vci

     atmconfig natm show
	     List all NATM routes.

     natm(4), natmip(4)

     An	atmconfig command appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.
