qe -- SPARC Fast Ethernet interface SYNOPSIS
qec* at sbus? slot ? offset ? qe* at qec? DESCRIPTION
The qe interface provides access to 10Mb/s Ethernet networks via the AMD Am79C940 (MACE) Ethernet controller. The qe is found on the Sun QuadEthernet boards (Sun part number SUNW,501-2062). Each of the host's network addresses is specified at boot time with an SIOCSIFADDR ioctl(2). The qe interface employs the address resolution protocol described in arp(4) to dynamically map between Internet and Ethernet addresses on the local network. SEE ALSO
arp(4), be(4), hme(4), ie(4), ifmedia(4), inet(4), intro(4), le(4), netintro(4), qec(4), sbus(4), ifconfig(8) HISTORY
Support for the qe first appeared in NetBSD 1.4. BSD

edsc -- Ethernet discard network interface SYNOPSIS
device edsc DESCRIPTION
The edsc interface is a software discard mechanism which may be used for performance analysis and software testing. It imitates an Ethernet device, which allows for its use in conjunction with such drivers as if_bridge(4) and vlan(4). As with other network interfaces, an edsc interface must have network addresses assigned for each address family with which it is to be used. These addresses may be set or changed with the SIOCSIFADDR ioctl(2) or ifconfig(8) utility. Each edsc interface is created at runtime using interface cloning. This is most easily done with the ifconfig(8) create command or using the cloned_interfaces variable in rc.conf(5). SEE ALSO
ioctl(2), arp(4), if_bridge(4), inet(4), intro(4), vlan(4), rc.conf(5), arp(8), ifconfig(8) HISTORY
The edsc device was derived from the disc(4) device and first appeared in FreeBSD 6.3. This manpage was adapted from disc(4). CAVEATS
Since outgoing packets are just discarded by edsc, ARP requests stay unreplied. Consequently, an IP packet cannot be sent via edsc until a static arp(4) entry is created for its next hop using arp(8). Initially an edsc interface has a zero link level address. It can be changed with ifconfig(8) lladdr if needed. BSD
