Syntax:

io-net -d tigon3 [option[,option ...]] ...&

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:


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

connector=type
Network cable connector type:
0
BNC
1
UTP
3
FIBER

The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.

did=devid
Device ID. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
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. 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.
priority
The priority of the driver thread. The default is 21.
promiscuous=0|1
If set to 1, enable the driver to pass all data packets received, regardless of address. The default is 0.
single
In a multiple NIC environment, stop after the first detected card. Default is to enable all cards found.
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).
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
Vendor ID of the controller. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.

Description:

The devn-tigon3.so driver is the Ethernet controller for the Broadcom BCM570X.

Examples:

Start io-net using the TIGON3 driver and the full TCP/IP stack:

io-net -d tigon3 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.
