devn-el900.so

Driver for 3Com 90x Network Interface Cards

Syntax:

io-net -d el900 [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

The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.

did=0xXXXX
PCI device ID. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
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.
mac=XXXXXXXXXXXX
MAC address of controller. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
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.
promiscuous
Enable promiscuous mode. The default is off.
receive=num
Set the number of receive descriptors. The default is 64.
transmit=num
Set the number of transmit descriptors. The default is 128.
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.
vid=0xXXXX
PCI vendor ID. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.

Description:

The devn-el900.so driver controls 3Com 90x Network Interface Cards (NICs). The IRQ of the interface is automatically detected on supported hardware.

Examples:

Start io-net using the 90x NIC driver and the full TCP/IP stack:

io-net -d el900 verbose -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.
