Thanks for all the efforts to bring out both pat v0.13 & pat-gensio v0.7. I have had both operating in different modes for the last few days. With pat-gensio, I  have used both telnet and my signalink usb to access winlink CMS. With pat v0.13 I have only used telnet; I wish to setup ax25 for use with pat v0.13. I have some experience with ax25 on a different system. I could use some guidance for setting up ax25 with the device being a combination direwolf v1.7 and the signalink usb. The scripts in /usr/share/pat/ax25 seem directed towards a serial TNC device not a soundcard modem.

thanks. I like this approach. Unfortunately, on linux mint, pluging in the signalink usb doesn't provide a clearly recognizable /dev file. Sudo systemctl | grep ttyUSB gives no result and dmesg | grep ttyUSB or grep tty doesn't help.
lsusb shows:

so I have the codec device ID but that's not much help.

I have some examples here based on running pat in a vagrant box under MacOS (intel): https://github.com/n2ygk/winlink As usual the documentation is not up to date;-)

If you are using gensio (gax25), you won't be using anything in /usr/share/pat.

The defaults should work with direwolf.  Here is the default gax25 configuration:

  "gax25": {
    "gensio": "kiss,keepopen(discard-badwrites=yes),tcp,localhost,8001",
    "beacon": {
      "every": 3600,
      "message": "Winlink P2P",
      "destination": "IDENT"
    }
  },

In this, direwolf is running on the local system with the kiss port at 8001, which is the default for direwolf.  Ignore all the Linux AX25 configuration, you don't need it with gax25.
