This is needed in bpq32.cfg to setup the axudp/axip port.

The 'map' line is used for making the axudp connection with the far end

 PORTNUM=4              ; Optional but sets port number if stated
 ID=AX/IP/UDP           ; Displayed by PORTS command
 DRIVER=BPQAXIP         ; Uses BPQAXIP capability of bpq32.dll
 QUALITY=230            ; Quality factor applied to node broadcasts heard on
                                        ; this port, unless overridden by a locked route
                                        ; entry. Setting to 0 stops node broadcasts
 MINQUAL=120            ; Entries in the nodes table with qualities greater or
                                        ; equal to MINQUAL will be sent on this port. A value
                                        ; of 0 sends everything.
 MAXFRAME=2             ; Max outstanding frames (1 thru 7)
 FRACK=4000             ; Level 2 timout in milliseconds
 RESPTIME=1000          ; Level 2 delayed ack timer in milliseconds
 RETRIES=5              ; Level 2 maximum retry value
 PACLEN=236             ; Max = 236
 CONFIG                 ; BPQAXIP.cfg has been deprecated.  Instead the AXIP
                        ; configuration occurs here:
 MHEARD                 ; Opens AXIP MHEARD window
 UDP 10093              ;Listens for UDP packets on this UDP port number
; DONTCHECKSOURCECALL   ;This option allows entries in the NODES table from
                                        ;stations sending you nodes broadcasts without the
                                        ;corresponding node being configured in bpqaxip.cfg.
; AUTOADDMAP                    ;This option automatically adds the node call and
                                        ;address of a node for which you do not have a
                                        ;pre-arranged fixed entry in bpqaxip.cfg.  If the
                                        ;option DONTCHECKSOURCECALL is specified then the
                                        ;AUTOADDMAP option is ignored.
 MAP VZ2XYZ-7 UDP 10093

I guess that’s because there’s no encapping so there’s a whole layer of stuff the system doesn’t have to deal with.  Still you do get a sense that it’s still ham stuff as the netrom packets fly by with attached call letters and I do still have a vhf radio drop working <g>.
