NAME
de - DEC DEUNA 10 Mb/s Ethernet interface SYNOPSIS
/sys/conf/SYSTEM: NDE de_controllers # DEUNA DESCRIPTION
The de interface provides access to a 10 Mb/s Ethernet network through a Digital Equipment UNIBUS Network Adapter (DEUNA). Each of the host's network addresses is specified at boot time with an SIOCSIFADDR ioctl. The de interface employs the address resolution protocol described in arp(4P) to dynamically map between Internet and Ethernet addresses on the local network. The interface normally tries to use a ``trailer'' encapsulation to minimize copying data on input and output. The use of trailers is nego- tiated with ARP. This negotiation may be disabled, on a per-interface basis, by setting the IFF_NOTRAILERS flag with an SIOCSIFFLAGS ioctl. DIAGNOSTICS
de%d: hardware address %s. This is a normal autoconfiguration message noting the 6 byte physical ethernet address of the adapter. de%d: oerror, flags=%b tdrerr=%b (len=%d). The hardware indicated an error in transmitting a packet to the cable. The status and error flags are reported. de%d: ierror, flags=%b lenerr=%b (len=%d). The hardware indicated an error in reading a packet from the cable. The status and error flags are reported. de%d: can't handle af%d. The interface was handed a message with addresses formatted in an unsuitable address family; the packet was dropped. de%d: buffer unavailable. The interface received more packets than it had buffers allocated to receive them. de%d: address change failed, csr0=%b csr1=%b. The interface was unable to reprogram its physical ethernet address. This may happen with very early models of the interface. This facility is used only when the controller is not the first network interface configured for XNS. The following messages indicate a probable hardware error performing the indicated operation during autoconfiguration or initialization. The two control and status registers should indicate the nature of the failure. See the hardware manual for details. de%d: reset failed, csr0=%b csr1=%b. de%d: ppcb failed, csr0=%b csr1=%b. de%d: read addr failed, csr0=%b csr1=%b. de%d: wtring failed, csr0=%b csr1=%b. de%d: wtmode failed, csr0=%b csr1=%b.

NAME
il - Interlan NI1010 10 Mb/s Ethernet interface SYNOPSIS
/sys/conf/SYSTEM: NIL il_controllers # Interlan Ethernet DESCRIPTION
The il interface provides access to a 10 Mb/s Ethernet network through an Interlan 1010 or 1010A controller. Each of the host's network addresses is specified at boot time with an SIOCSIFADDR ioctl. The il interface employs the address resolution protocol described in arp(4P) to dynamically map between Internet and Ethernet addresses on the local network. The interface normally tries to use a ``trailer'' encapsulation to minimize copying data on input and output. The use of trailers is nego- tiated with ARP. This negotiation may be disabled, on a per-interface basis, by setting the IFF_NOTRAILERS flag with an SIOCSIFFLAGS ioctl. DIAGNOSTICS
il%d: input error. The hardware indicated an error in reading a packet off the cable or an illegally sized packet. il%d: can't handle af%d. The interface was handed a message with addresses formatted in an unsuitable address family; the packet was dropped. il%d: setaddr didn't work. The interface was unable to reprogram its physical ethernet address. This may happen with very early models of the interface. This facility is used only when the controller is not the first network interface configured for XNS. The oldest interface tested (2.7.1.0.1.45) has never failed in this way. The following messages indicate a probable hardware error performing the indicated operation during autoconfiguration or initialization. The status field in the control and status register (the low-order four bits) should indicate the nature of the failure. See the hardware manual for details. il%d: reset failed, csr=%b. il%d: status failed, csr=%b. il%d: hardware diag failed, csr=%b. il%d: verifying setaddr, csr=%b. il%d: stray xmit interrupt, csr=%b. il%d: can't initialize.
