Re: x.25 status in kernel

Hi, thanks for the pointer to fyonne.net.
>From what I see there I understand that in order to use XOT I need to
communicate either to Cisco HW or another XOT daemon (e.g. another
Linux box)?  Are there any other HW vendors supporting XOT you have
experience with?
My concern, and I'm sure other people will complain about this as
well, is that the kernel module is based on obsoleted ethertap module.
 I'd have to see what it takes to rewrite this to use the tuntap
stuff.
