Driver for Artesyn Ethernet adapters

Syntax:

io-net -d artesyn [option[,option ...]] ... &

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:


Note: Use commas (,) to separate the options (not spaces).

connector=0|1|2|3
Network cable connector type:
0
BNC
1
UTP
2
AUI
3
FIBER
duplex=0|1
Half (0) or full (1) duplex mode. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware. If you specify duplex, specify speed as well; if duplex alone is specified, it is ignored and both speed and duplex are auto-negotiated.
iftype=num
Interface type (from <net/if_types.h>). The default is IFT_ETHER.
iorange=0xXXXXXXXX
I/O base address.
irq=num
IRQ of the interface. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
lan=num
LAN number. The default is 0.
mac=XXXXXXXXXXXX
MAC address of the controller. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
media=num
Media type (from <hw/nicinfo.h>). The default is NIC_MEDIA_802_3.
memrange=0xXXXXXXXX
Register base physical memory address.
mru=num
Maximum receive unit. The default is 1514.
mtu=num
Maximum transmission unit. The default (1514) is automatically detected on supported hardware.
nomulticast
Disables the driver from sending or receiving multicast packets. By default, multicast is enabled.
priority=N
Priority of the driver event-thread. The default is 21.
promiscuous
Enable the driver to pass all data packets received, regardless of address. By default, promiscuous mode is disabled.
speed=10|100
Media data rate in Megabits/second.
uptype=name
Interface name. The default is "en".
verbose
verbose=N
Be verbose. Specify num for more verbosity (num can be 1-4, the higher the number, the more detailed the output). The default is 0. The output goes to slogger, invoke sloginfo to view.

Description:

The devn-artesyn.so driver controls Artesyn Ethernet adapters.

Examples:

Start io-net using the Artesyn driver and the full TCP/IP stack:

io-net -d artesyn -p tcpip &
ifconfig en0 10.184

Files:

/dev/io-net
The directory where, by default, drivers and protocol modules add entries. For more information, the documentation for io-net.
