devn-tulip-p5064.so

Tulip driver for the Algorithmics P-5064 single-board computer only

Syntax:

io-net -d tulip-p5064 [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
2
AUI
3
FIBER

The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.

chipset=number
The number of the chipset to be configured. The driver stops after configuring the first chipset it finds of the type number. Supported chipset numbers include:
DEC/Intel
21040, 21041, 21140, 21143, 21145
PNIC
168
ADMtek
985
Macronix
98715
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.
mtu=X
Maximum transmission unit. 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=0|1
If set to 1, enable the driver to pass all data packets received, regardless of address. The default is 0.
receive=X
Number of receive descriptors/buffers. The default is 32.
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=X
Number of transmit descriptors/buffers. The default is 20.
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-tulip-p5064.so driver is the Tulip driver for the Algorithmics P-5064 single-board computer only.


Note: When you start a single instance of the Tulip driver on a multiport board (using the pci= option), the board might not function unless this instance is on the first interface. On NICs with multiple interfaces sharing a single SROM, the first NIC is the only one that can read the SROM.

Examples:

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

io-net -d tulip-p5064 -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.
