devn-ppc860_mii.so

Driver for PPC860T Fast Ethernet controller

Syntax:

io-net -d ppc860_mii [option[,option ...]] ...

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:


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

duplex=dup
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 the controller.
mtu=X
Maximum transmission unit. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
receive=num
Set the number of receive descriptors. The default is 30.
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 15.
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-ppc860_mii.so driver controls the PPC860T Ethernet controller.

Examples:

Start io-net using the PPC860T driver and the full TCP/IP stack:

io-net -d ppc860_mii -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.
