NAME
     be -- SPARC Fast Ethernet interface

SYNOPSIS
     qec* at sbus? slot ? offset ?
     be* at qec?

DESCRIPTION
     The be interface provides access to the 10Mb/s and 100Mb/s (half duplex only) Ethernet net-
     works.  The be is found on the Sun 10/100 Mbit Ethernet boards (Sun part number
     SUNW,501-2450).

     Each of the host's network addresses is specified at boot time with an SIOCSIFADDR ioctl(2).
     The be interface employs the address resolution protocol described in arp(4) to dynamically
     map between Internet and Ethernet addresses on the local network.

     The be is not capable of link autonegotiation, so a media type must be specified with
     ifconfig(8).  The supported media types are:

	   media 100baseTX
		       Use 100Mbps, half duplex

	   media 10baseT
		       Use 10Mbps, half duplex

SEE ALSO
     arp(4), ifmedia(4), inet(4), intro(4), netintro(4), sbus(4), ifconfig(8)

HISTORY
     Support for the be first appeared in NetBSD 1.4.
