devn-el509.so

Driver for 3Com 509 ISA Ethernet adapters

Syntax:

io-net -d el509 [option[,option ...]] ...

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:


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

connector=type
Network cable connector type:
0
BNC
1
UTP
2
AUI
3
FIBER

The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.

ioport=port
The I/O port of the interface. The port parameter must be a hex address (e.g. 0x320). The default is automatically detected on supported hardware (but see caution below).
irq=req
The IRQ of the interface. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware (but see caution below).
mac=XXXXXXXXXXXX
MAC address of controller. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
mtu=X
Maximum transmission unit. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
nomulticast
Disables the driver from sending or receiving multicast packets. By default, multicast is enabled.
pcmcia
Flag to indicate a PCMCIA device to the driver.
promiscuous
Enable promiscuous mode. The default is off.
verbose
verbose=num
Be verbose. Specify num for more verbosity (num can be 1-4, the higher the number, the more detailed the output). The output goes to slogger, invoke sloginfo to view.

Description:

The devn-el509.so driver controls 3Com 509 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 509 ISA Ethernet adapter driver and the full TCP/IP stack:

io-net -d el509 ioport=0x320,irq=11 -p tcpip

Files:

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