This package provides all the basic programs needed for setting up, monitoring and tuning ATM networks. Such as: * atmsigd, an ATM signal daemon that implements the ATM UNI protocol. * atmtcp, a tool to setup ATM over TCP connections. * atmarpd, an implementation of the ATMARP protocol (RFC1577, RFC1755) * zeppelin, an ATM LAN Emulation client daemon * les and bus, ATM LAN Emulation service daemons Notice that upstream still flags these tools as experimental software and says that there is still a number of known bugs and issues. The software is, however, in productive use at a number of sites and is working reliably.
