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


  /usr/sbin/atmsetup [-old]


      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 appli-
  cation.  This	application enables you	to configure and run ATM on your sys-
  tem.	Specifically, you can configure	network	adapters and logical inter-
  faces	on the adapters	for the	following environments:	Classical IP, LAN
  Emulation, and IP Switching.	Compaq recommends you use the SysMan applica-


       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 End-
  point	System Identifiers (ESIs), pacing options, the type of network physi-
  cal layer, and whether to enable flow	control, Integrated Local Management
  Interface (ILMI), signaling, and virtual circuit (VC)	accounting.  In	addi-
  tion,	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	cir-
  cuits	(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 con-
  nected 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	sys-
  tem. 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 system.


  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 inter-

    +  It supports boot-time configuration only.


      Specifies	the command pathname

      The path name containing ATM commands to execute when the	system is

      The path name containing ATM commands to execute when the	system is
      shut down
