fwe — Ethernet
emulation driver for FireWire
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file:
Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5):
fwe driver provides non-standard
Ethernet emulation over FireWire (IEEE 1394).
This driver exploits asynchronous stream over IEEE 1394 to carry Ethernet frames. The stream channel can be specified by the hw.firewire.fwe.stream_ch sysctl(8).
This driver supports polling(4) as well if it is
compiled with the
fwe device driver first appeared in
fwe driver and this manual page were
written by Hidetoshi Shimokawa.
This driver emulates Ethernet in a very adhoc way and it does not reserve a stream channel using an isochronous manager. Note that this driver uses a protocol which is very different from RFC 2734 (IPv4 over IEEE 1394).
