NAME
       mgnokiidev - links /dev/gnokii to a virtual modem

SYNOPSIS
       mgnokiidev /dev/pts/?

DESCRIPTION
       mgnokiidev is a tool from the gnokii tool suite used to create the link
       /dev/gnokii that	points to a pseudo-tty (/dev/pts/?).

       It is called after gnokiid has created a	virtual	modem that is attached
       to  the	pty.   It's  operation	is  transparent	 under normal usage as
       gnokiid takes care of calling it	when required.

       Since mgnokiidev	must modifiy files in /dev, it must be either  run  as
       root  or	 SUID root.  The latter	is the preferred method.  Normally the
       mgnokiidev binary is chmod 4750 and owned by root.gnokii.

       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.
