     fwip -- IP over FireWire driver

     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configura-
     tion file:

	   device firewire
	   device fwip

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following lines in
       loader.conf(5) :


     The fwip driver provides standard IP over FireWire (IEEE 1394) based on the protocols
     described in RFC 2734 and RFC 3146.

     The   firewire(4)  and   fwohci(4)  drivers must be configured in the kernel as well.

     This driver supports   polling(4)  as well if it is compiled with the DEVICE_POLLING option.

       arp(4) ,   firewire(4) ,   fwe(4) ,   fwohci(4) ,   netintro(4) ,   polling(4) ,   ifconfig(8) ,   kldload(8) ,

     The fwip device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 5.3.

     The fwip driver and this manual page were written by Doug Rabson, based on earlier work by
     Hidetoshi Shimokawa.

     This driver currently does not support the MCAP protocol for multicast IP over FireWire.
     Multicast packets are treated as broadcast packets which is sufficient for most trivial uses
     of multicast.
