The SX.25 Administrator's Guide explains how to use gx25adm to configure X.25 network connections on a Silicon Graphics® host. The gx25adm utility is a graphical interface to SX.25, the Silicon Graphics implementation of the X.25 protocols specified by the International Consultative Committee for Telegraphy and Telephony (CCITT).
The audience for this guide is experienced X.25 network administrators. The guide describes gx25adm software components and briefly reviews X.25 network concepts to familiarize you with the SX.25 operating environment. It assumes that you will consult CCITT publications and service providers specifications to determine detailed configuration requirements of your site.
Most procedures in this guide assume that you are configuring an SX.25 host for the first time. If you are modifying an existing SX.25 configuration, you need to make slight adjustments when carrying out some instructions. For example, data entry fields that appear empty on unconfigured systems frequently contain data if the system is already configured, and it is not necessary to supply configuration data as instructed, except to make changes. Configured SX.25 hosts might also contain user-created files in addition to the factory-shipped files; any user-created files are displayed as selections in file lists.
