       A  LAN Emulation Client is an entity in an ATM endstation that performs
       data forwarding, address resolution and	other  control	functions.  It
       uses  the  LUNI	interface  when communicating with other components in
       emulated LANs. It provides upper protocol layers a MAC  like  interface
       similar to IEEE 802.3/Ethernet or IEEE 802.5/Token Ring LAN.

       LAN  Emulation client code is divided into two parts: user space appli‐
       cation LAN Emulation Demon called (LED)	zeppelin(8),  and  the	kernel
       component. Zeppelin is responsible for control operations needed in LAN
       Emulation clienthood. It forms the necessary VCCs and receives all  the
       LE  control frames and acts accordingly. It also controls the operation
       of the LEC kernel component.

       Linux LEC supports only Ethernet type of emulated LAN.

       SIGHUP causes restart of the LEC. All resources are released  and  zep‐
       pelin is started.

       -b     Run  in  background  (i.e. in a forked child process) after ini‐
	      tializing kernel interface.

       -c LECS_address
	      ATM address of lecs(8) (Lan Emulation Configuration Server),  if
	      not set, Well-Known server address is used.

       -s LES_address
	      ATM  address  of	les(8)	(Lan Emulation Server), can be used in
	      bypassing configuration phase in joining emulated Lan  i.e  lecs
	      address is not used.

       -e esi Mac  address  to	use  when  communicating in Emulated LAN. E.g.
	      00:20:22:23:04:05 .

       -n VLAN_name
	      Name of the virtual LAN to which joining is requested.  This  is
	      if configuration phase is bypassed.

       -m mesg_mask
	      Sometimes one wants to know more what is happening in LE	daemon
	      e.g.  when  nothing works. This is a hexadecimal long value set‐
	      ting global message mask. 0 = No messages, ffff = All messages.

       -l listen_address | selector
	      Local ATM address that zeppelin uses as local binding  point  in
	      signalling.  Use this if you are running more than one client or
	      a set of LE servers. The local ATM address can be	 specified  by
	      either giving the full ATM address or the desired selector byte.

       -i interface_number
	      Linux  LEC  supports  up	to 40+8 network interfaces. The inter‐
	      face_number tells zeppelin to which of these to attach. Ethernet
	      type  network interfaces are numbered from "lec0" to "lec39" and
	      Token Ring interfaces are from "lec40" to "lec47". These parame‐
	      ters  are	 tweakable  during the kernel compile, see <linux/atm‐

       -I physical_interface_number
	      The physical interface this LANE client should bind to. If  your
	      host  has multiple ATM network cards, you can use this option to
	      choose which card this zeppelin will use.

       -t MTU The MTU of ELAN to join. You need to also use ifconfig(8) to set
	      the MTU of the LANE interface.

       -1     Run as LANEv1 client. This is the default.

       -2     Run as LANEv2 client. This is required by MPOA.

       -p     Enable  proxy.  When started with this option, it is possible to
	      bridge packets between ATM and Ethernet. That is,	 you  can  use
	      LANE  interfaces	with  normal  bridging. See the Bridging mini-
	      Howto for more info.

       -F logfile
	      Instead of writing debug messages to stderr, write the  messages
	      to the file logfile. Use syslog as the file name to use the sys‐
	      log(3) facility.

       -f Fore specific name
	      The LANE servers on Fore ATM switches can display a special name
	      if  a  client can supply one. This name shows with command ´conf
	      lane les show advanced´.

       A number of lec interfaces is reserved for Token Ring  ELANs  when  the
       kernel is compiled with Token Ring (CONFIG_TR) support. See the discus‐
       sion about interface_number command line option above. The Linux	 Token
       Ring  LANE  client  does not support bridging between legacy Token Ring
       and ATM parts of the ELAN, so using the -p option is  not  recommended.
       Token Ring support has received less testing than its Ethernet counter‐
