devn-eepro.so

Driver for Intel Ether Express Pro ISA 82595 Ethernet adapters

Syntax:

io-net -d eepro [option[,option ...]] ...

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:


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

duplex=0|1
Half (0) or full (1) duplex mode.
iftype=num
Interface type (from <net/if_types.h>). The default is IFT_ETHER.
iorange=0xXXXXXXXX
The I/O base address.
irq=num
The IRQ of the interface. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware (but see caution below).
lan=num
LAN number. The default is 0.
mac=XXXXXXXXXXXX
MAC address of 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.
mtu=num
Maximum transmission unit. The default is 1514.
nomulticast
Disable multicast support.
priority=N
Priority of the driver event-thread. The default is 21.
promiscuous
Enable promiscuous mode. The default is off.
uptype=name
Interface name. The default is "en".
verbose
verbose=N
Be verbose. Specify N for more verbosity (N 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-eepro.so driver controls Intel Ether Express Pro ISA Ethernet adapters.


Caution: This driver cannot always detect the correct irq and ioport options, especially for ISA devices. To be sure, always specify irq and ioport when using this driver.

Examples:

Start io-net using the Ether Express Pro driver and the full TCP/IP stack:

io-net -d eepro -ptcpip
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.
