llc2_config - configure LLC2 interface parameters SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/llc2/llc2_config [-P | -U | -d | -q | -i ppa | -r ppa] DESCRIPTION
The llc2_config utility is used to start/stop the LLC2 subsystem and to configure LLC2 interface parameters. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -d Turns on debug mode. Extra debugging information will be printed out. -i ppa Initializes the corresponding interface using the file /etc/llc2/default/llc2.ppa. -P Reads in all /etc/llc2/default/llc2.* configuration files, opens those devices defined in the files, and sets up the streams needed for LLC2 to use those devices. Before doing this, llc2_config -q will not show anything. -q Queries the LLC2 subsystem. Information similar to the following example will be printed out for all PPAs (Physical Point of Attachment) available under the LLC2 module: PPA State ID MACAddr Type MaxSDU MinSDU Mode 0 up 0000 0800208a217e ethernet 1500 0 3 The fields displayed are described below: PPA The relative logical position of the interface. State The state of the interface: up The interface is initialized and operational. down The interface was "discovered" by the LLC2 driver, has passed its bootup diagnostics, and is awaiting initialization. bad The interface is known to the LLC2 driver, but failed one or more of the integrity checks performed at boot time. This might include detecting Interrupt Request and shared memory conflicts or failures detected during the execution of the level 0 diagnostics. ID The interface ID. MACAddr The MAC address currently in effect for the interface. Type The MAC type. Current types supported include: csma/cd 10 Megabit Ethernet ethernet Ethernet type device tkn-ring 4/16 Megabit Token Ring fddi 100 Megabit Fiber Distributed Data Interface MaxSDU The Maximum Service Data Unit size transmitted on this interface. Mode The Service Modes supported by this interface. This field consists of the bitwise logical-ORing of the supported modes, also defined in /usr/include/sys/dlpi.h. -r ppa Uninitializes the corresponding interface. By using this option, and then using the -i option, the parameters associated with an interface can be changed. -U Destroys all streams used by the LLC2 subsystem. This is the reverse of the -P option. After this is executed, llc2_config -q will not show anything. FILES

rtls - Realtek Fast Ethernet 8139-based network interface controllers SYNOPSIS
The rtls Ethernet driver is a multi-threaded, loadable, clonable, STREAMS hardware driver supporting the connectionless Data Link Provider Interface, dlpi(7P), over Realtek 8139 controllers. The rtls driver provides basic support for the Realtek 8139 hardware. Functions include chip initialization, frame transmit and receive, multicast support, and error recovery and reporting. APPLICATION PROGRAMMING INTERFACE
The cloning, character-special device /dev/rtls is used to access all 8139 devices installed within the system. rtls and DLPI The rtls driver is dependent on /kernel/misc/gld, a loadable kernel module that provides the rtls driver with the DLPI and STREAMS func- tionality required of a LAN driver. See gld(7D) for more details on the primitives supported by the driver. The values returned by the driver in the DL_INFO_ACK primitive in response to the DL_INFO_REQ from the user are as follows: o Maximum SDU is 1500 (ETHERMTU). o Minimum SDU is 0. The driver pads to the mandatory 60-octet minimum packet size. o The dlsap address length is 8. o MAC type is DL_ETHER. o The sap length value is -2, meaning the physical address component is followed immediately by a 2-byte sap component within the DLSAP address. o Broadcast address value is Ethernet/IEEE broadcast address (FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF). KNOWN PROBLEMS AND LIMITATIONS
The rtls driver only supports Realtek 8139 on x86 platforms. The rtls driver does not support the NDD interface and MII statistics. Realtek 8139 works under 100FDX/100HDX and 10FDX/10HDX modes, which you can set using the rtls.conf file. CONFIGURATION
To configure the rtls driver: o Use prtconf -v | grep pci10ec,8139 to obtain the instance number of the driver. (pci1186,1301 or pci1113,1211 indicates a third-party ethernet device with an 8139 chip that can also be controlled by the rtls driver.) The rtls.conf configuration file options include: -ForceSpeedDuplex Default: 5 (Auto-negotiate) Allowed Values: 4 (100 FDX) 3 (100 HDX) 2 (10 FDX) 1 (10 HDX) Specify the speed and duplex mode for each instance. Example: ForceSpeedDuplex=5,4; Sets rtls0 to autonegotiate and rtls1 to 100 FDX. FILES
