NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       atmsetup  -  Configures  Asynchronous  Transfer Mode (ATM)
       adapters and services

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/sbin/atmsetup [-old]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Invokes the atmsetup script. This option is  for  backward
       compatibility, and will be removed in a future release.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       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
       (UNI) version.

       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
       more information.

   atmsetup Script
       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

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       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
       configuration only.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies  the  command  pathname The path name containing
       ATM commands to execute when the system is booted The path
       name containing ATM commands to execute when the system is
       shut down ATM Configuration Help Volume (SysMan)
