NAME
       gnokiid - create	a virtual modem	for old	Nokia mobile phones

SYNOPSIS
       gnokiid

       gnokiid [--help|--version|--debug]

DESCRIPTION
       gnokiid

       is a tool from the gnokii tool suite used to create a virtual modem de-
       vice with a Nokia portable telephone.  The virtual modem	device is usu-
       ally accessed via a symbolic link called	/dev/gnokii (created automati-
       cally by	mgnokiidev(8)).	Please note that you don't need	a virtual  mo-
       dem  when  you have real	modem accepting	AT Hayes commands (most	of the
       modern phones). gnokiid was written for the phones that supported  data
       transfer	 but  didn't  expose  AT layer (namely Nokia 6110, 6130, 6150,
       5110, 5130).

       After gnokiid has created the virtual modem, it can  be	accessed  like
       any  other Hayes-compatible modem by such programs as the terminal pro-
       gram minicom(1) or the PPP daemon pppd(8) to make standard data connec-
       tions to	remote computers.

       The  full  range	 of portable telephone functions (SMS messaging, phone
       book, operator logos, etc.) are accessed	using the command-line program
       gnokii(1) or the	graphical interface program xgnokii(1x).

       gnokii is a Linux/Unix tool suite and (eventually) modem/fax driver for
       Nokia mobile phones, released under the GPL.

       gnokii supports most phones from	the 3810/8110  and  5110/6110  series,
       details	including  bugs	 specific  to  each series appear in the files
       Docs/README-3810	and Docs/README-6110 respectively.

OPTIONS
       If called without any options, gnokiid will set up a virtual modem  de-
       vice  using the settings	in gnokii(1) config file (if it	exists).  Oth-
       erwise,

       --help print out	a short	usage message

       --version
	      print out	version, copyright, phone, and serial device info

       --debug
	      uses STDIN/STDOUT	for a virtual modem
