atmsetup - Configures Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)
adapters and services
Invokes the atmsetup script. This option is for backward
compatibility, and will be removed in a future release.
The atmsetup command by default invokes the SysMan ATM
Configuration application, which is the recommended configuration
method. This application enables you to configure
and run ATM on your system. Specifically, you can
configure network adapters and logical interfaces on the
adapters for the following environments: Classical IP, LAN
Emulation, and IP Switching.
Support for IP Switching will be retired in a future
release. Do not use it to develop new applications.
During the adapter configuration, you specify the adapter
name, the Endpoint System Identifiers (ESIs), pacing
options, the type of network physical layer, and whether
to enable flow control, Integrated Local Management Interface
(ILMI), signaling, and virtual circuit (VC) accounting.
In addition, you specify the User-Network Interface
During logical interface configuration, you specify information
related to each ATM environment. For Classical IP,
you choose whether the system is an ATMARP client or
server and whether to configure permanent virtual circuits
(PVCs). For LAN Emulation, you choose which emulated LAN
to join and how to join the emulated LAN. For IP Switching,
you specify the Subnetwork Attachment Point (SNAP)
VCI number and VCI limits. In all three cases, you change
only those default values that your configuration
requires. See Asynchronous Transfer Mode for information
on configuring ATM and the ATM configuration application
online help for more information.
Before invoking the atmsetup command, make sure that your
system is connected to a switch, the network software is
configured and running, ATM is configured into the kernel,
and the ATM subsets are installed.
After running atmsetup, you must configure the ATM interfaces
with the correct IP address and netmask. Select Configure
Interfaces from the SysMan menu. See sysman(8) for
If you specify the -old option, the atmsetup script is
invoked. This script prompts you for all information that
you need to enter in order to configure ATM. The script
creates and maintains a directory hierarchy /etc/atm,
which contains all the ATM configuration information.
The atmsetup script configures the driver and signaling on
an ATM end system. In addition, you can configure your
system to operate in a Classical IP or Local Area Network
(LAN) emulation environment. See Asynchronous Transfer
Mode for additional information on configuring ATM on your
You must be superuser to use this command.
The atmsetup script (-old option) has the following
restrictions: You can configure only lis interfaces to
support SVCs and elan interfaces. It supports boot-time
