You know -- I liked it the other way better somehow...  Consider this:
Access to a particular tunnel requires a unique call ID, the only
uniqueness I can give this ID is with SSID, and so the SSID list becomes
very crowded as you enter more tunnels.

Further -- if mycall is used it is immediately ambiguous so omitting the
call is a no-solution because it violates the uniqueness rules for

HMMM, there must be more to this after all even though progress has been

You have heard me mention the wiki?  The wiki begins with the jnos1.11
document and extends that effort with many collected works published on
the web since then -- some of them published by Maiko.  So yes, my jnos
efforts are driven by the manual you referenced --> augmented.

[a sales statement] Next time you need a manual, you are invited to the
wiki.  Try the search engine for the subject you are needing info on.
You might like it.  http://jnoswiki.no-ip.org is all you need?

Now that was an exaggeration, but all efforts start with less than they
finish with.
