devn-ne2000.so

Driver for NE-2000-compatible Ethernet adapters

Syntax:

io-net -d ne2000 [option[,option ...]] ...

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:


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

did=0xXXXX
PCI device ID. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
ioport=num
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=num
IRQ of the interface. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware (but see caution below).
mac=XXXXXXXXXXXX
MAC address of the controller. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
nomulticast
Disables the driver from sending or receiving multicast packets. By default, multicast is enabled.
pci=0xXXXX
PCI index of the controller. The default is automatically detected on the supported hardware.
promiscuous
Enable promiscuous mode. The default is off.
tmem=name
Name for typed memory.
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
The PCI vendor ID of the controller. The default is automatically detected on the supported hardware.
width=8|16
I/O access width (8 or 16 bits). The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.

Description:

The devn-ne2000.so driver controls NE-2000-compatible 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 NE-2000 driver and the full TCP/IP stack:

io-net -d ne2000 ioport=0x320,irq=11 -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.

Caveats:

If you're running a PCMCIA NE2000-compatible adapter, you may need to specify the -w8 command-line option of devp-pccard.
