    The configuration file for wimxrf AM is in the same location as for all the other OMF AM services in /etc/omf-agggr-5.2/available/wimaxrf.yaml. The configuration file consists of multiple section sections relating to different components of the services.

    Default parameter values are shown in []; Bold font indicates mandatory parameters.

    asngw: Section

       if: eth1
       rcvport: 54321
       sndport: 54321
       id: ASNGW000
       tecnh: 3
       dsc: IP-Config-Mgmt

    bs: section

    datapath: section

    Typical configuration:

        type: simpleclick

    These configuration parameters are temporary → click is supposed to learn them from client DHCP requests.

    • def_gw: IP address of the default gateway for WiMAX clients [none]
    • net_mask: Network mask for datapath subnet [none]
    • def_ip: IP address that will be given to clients that are not assigned IP address (i.e. unknown clients) [none]

    auth: Section

        database: /var/spool/asnctrl/wimax-clients.sql
        allow_unknown: true
    • database: Location of the SQLite authentication database var/spool/asnctrl/wimax-clients.sql
    • allow_unknown: If set to true, will allow access for clients that are not registered in the authentication database [false]

    Oml: Section


    omlServer: value is the hostname of your OML server. Alternatively if you wish to install the oml2 server on your host
    locally, please do so by the following commands.

      apt-get install oml2-server 

    and then point the omlServer value to localhost.

    reset: Section

       file: '/defaults/reset.xml'
    • file: location of the default configuration [none]. The file is an XML file that containes default BS parameters and is used with /default wimaxrf service

    Each of the sections in this file should be modified to reflect your deployment configuration (please keep in mind that this is a YAML file and that it depends heavily on spaces and not TABs). Once the configuration file is ready, you have to enable the service by creating the symbolic link in /etc/omf-aggmgr-5.2/enabled:

    ln -s ../available/wimaxrf.yaml

    and restarting the OMF aggregate manager service:

    /etc/init.d/omf-aggmgr-5.2 restart


    OMF aggregate managers have quite extended logging capabilities. Log messages from all of the enabled services are stored in /var/log/omf-aggmgr-5.2.log
