SYNOPSIS

nos-tun -t tunnel -s source -d destination -p protocol_number [source] target

DESCRIPTION

The nos-tun utility is used to establish an nos style tunnel, (also known as ka9q or IP-IP tunnel) using a tun(4) kernel interface.

Tunnel is the name of the tunnel device /dev/tun0 for example.

Source and destination are the addresses used on the tunnel device. If you configure the tunnel against a cisco router, use a netmask of "255.255.255.252" on the cisco. This is because the tunnel is a point-to-point interface in the
.Fx end, a concept cisco does not really implement.

Protocol number sets tunnel mode. Original KA9Q NOS uses 94 but many people use 4 on the worldwide backbone of ampr.org.

Target is the address of the remote tunnel device, this must match the source address set on the remote end.

EXAMPLES

This end, a
.Fx box on address 192.168.59.34:
nos-tun -t /dev/tun0 -s 192.168.61.1 -d 192.168.61.2 192.168.56.45

Remote cisco on address 192.168.56.45:

interface tunnel 0
ip address 192.168.61.2 255.255.255.252
tunnel mode nos
tunnel destination 192.168.59.34
tunnel source 192.168.56.45
