devn-pcnet.so

Driver for AMD PCNET (AMD-79c97x) compatible Ethernet adapters

Syntax:

io-net -d pcnet [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
deviceindex=0xXXXX
Only attach to device with this PCI index.
did=0xXXXX
PCI device ID. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
dma=num
The DMA channel.
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.
hpna
Use HPNA phy.
iftype=num
Interface type (from <net/if_types.h>). The default is IFT_ETHER.
iorange=0xXXXXXXXX
The I/O base address.
irq=num
IRQ of the interface.
lan=num
LAN number. The default is 0.
mac=XXXXXXXXXXXX
MAC address of the 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.
mmap
Use memory-mapped registers. The default is IO mapped.
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.
pci=0xXXXX
PCI index of the controller. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
phy=num
Address of the connected PHY device.
priority=N
Priority of the driver event-thread. The default is 21.
probe_phy=0|1
Select whether or not to probe the PHY at regular intervals. For the default value of 0, the PHY is polled only at regular intervals when the interface is down or doesn't receive any packets over the polling interval. If you specify 1, the PHY is always probed at regular intervals to see if the duplex and/or speed of the connection has changed.
promiscuous
Enable promiscuous mode. The default is off.
receive=num
Set the number of receive descriptors/buffers. 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
Number of transmit descriptors/buffers. The default is 128.
uptype=name
Interface name. The default is "en".
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 default is 0. The output goes to slogger, invoke sloginfo to view.
vid=0xXXXX
PCI vendor ID of the controller. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.

Description:

The devn-pcnet.so driver controls AMD PCNET (AMD-79c97x) compatible Ethernet adapters.

Examples:

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

io-net -d pcnet -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.
