astribank_allow − License Xorcom Astribank (xpp) capabilities.
astribank_allow −D device-path [ options ]
Modern Astribanks (with USB product id’s 116x) contain capabilities that may be licensed.
astribank_allow is used to upload/download the licensing information to/from the device.
Uploading a valid license file to an Astribank, changes its capabilities. The change becomes effective after a firmware reset (either by powering the device off and on again, or via the astribank_tool full reset option).
Downloading license from the device, produces a valid license file for its current capabilities. This may be backed up, so the device may be later restored to its previous capabilities.
The license file contains both a human readable description of the device capabilities for the end user and a hash of the licensing information used by Xorcom to generate/modify licensed capabilities.
Required. The device to read from/write to. This is bus_num/device_num, where bus_num and device_num are the first two numbers in the output of lsusb(8) or dahdi_hardware(8). On older versions of this tool you needed a complete path to the device, which would be /dev/bus/usb/bus_num/device_num, or /proc/bus/usb/bus_num/device_num.
