devn-ns83815.so

Driver for National Semiconductor's MacPHYTER NS83815 Ethernet adapters

Syntax:

io-net -d ns83815 [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.
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.
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 supported hardware.
promiscuous
Enable promiscuous mode. The default is off.
receive=num
Set the number of receive descriptors. The default is 64.
speed=10|100
Media data rate (10Mbit or 100Mbit operation). The default is automatically detected on supported hardware. If you specify speed, specify duplex as well; if speed alone is specified, the specified speed will be correctly set, but duplex will default to half (0).
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
The PCI Vendor ID of the controller. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.

Description:

The devn-ns83815.so driver controls National Semiconductor's MacPHYTER NS83815 Ethernet adapters.

Examples:

Start io-net using the NS83815 driver and the full TCP/IP stack:

io-net -d ns83815 -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.
