xna(4)							     Kernel Interfaces Manual							    xna(4)

Name
       xna - DEBNI and DEMNA Ethernet interfaces

Syntax
       device xna0 at vaxbi? node? vector xnaintr (DEBNI)
       device xna0 at xmi? node? vector xnaintr (DEMNA)

Description
       The  driver provides access to a 10 Mbytes Ethernet network through the DEBNI and DEMNA adapters.  The DEBNI is an Ethernet to BI bus.  The
       DEMNA is an Ethernet to XMI adapter.

       The host's Internet address is specified at boot time with an SIOCSIFADDR ioctl.  The driver employs the Address  Resolution  Protocol,	as
       described in to map dynamically between Internet and Ethernet addresses on the local network.

       The  driver normally tries to use a trailer encapsulation to minimize copying data on input and output.	This can be disabled for an inter-
       face by setting the IFF_NOTRAILERS flag with an SIOCSIFFLAGS ioctl.  Trailers are used only for packets destined for Internet hosts.

       The SIOCSPHYSADDR ioctl can be used to change the physical address of the adapter and SIOCRPHYSADDR  can  be  used  to  read  its  physical
       address.   SIOCADDMULTI	and  SIOCDELMULTI can be used to add or delete multicast addresses.  The driver supports a maximum of 12 multicast
       addresses. The argument to the latter ioctls is a pointer to an ``ifreq'' structure found in

       SIOCRDCTRS and SIOCRDZCTRS ioctls can be used to read or read and clear network counters. The argument  to  the	latter	two  ioctls  is  a
       pointer to a counter structure ``ctrreq'' found in

       The ioctls SIOCENABLBACK and SIOCDISABLBACK can be used to enable and disable the interface loopback mode.

Restrictions
       The PUP protocol family is not supported.

Diagnostics
       xna%d: port self-test failed:<register list>
       Adapter did not pass the power-up self-test during autoconfiguration time. The port attachment fails.

       xna%d: couldn't allocate...
       The driver was unable to allocate memory for adapter data structures.  The port attachment fails.

       xna%d: port probe failed:<register list>
       The driver was unable to bring the adapter into the initialized state.  The port attachment fails.

       xna%d: port init failed:<register list>
       The driver failed to prepare the adapter for runtime use.

       xna%d: port state changed, resetting:<register list>
       The adapter issued a port state change interrupt. The port state is reset.

       xna%d: port reset failed
       The driver was unable to bring the adapter into the initialized state during a port reset.

       xna%d: command failed, error code:<error code>
       The adapter port command failed. The error code gives reason for failure.

       xna%d: couldn't handle af%d
       A packet with an undefined protocol type has been sent to the adapter.

       xna%d: addmulti failed, multicast list full
       Too many multicast requests have been made.

NAME
le - LeMAC Ethernet interface SYNOPSIS
config_driver le DESCRIPTION
The le interface provides access to a 10 Mb/s Ethernet network through the LeMAC controller. The host's Internet address is specified at boot time with an SIOCSIFADDR ioctl. The le interface employs the address resolution protocol described in arp(7) to map dynamically between Internet and Ethernet addresses on the local network. The SIOCSPHYSADDR ioctl can be used to change the physical address of the LeMAC. The SIOCRPHYSADDR ioctl can be used to read the physical address of the LeMAC. The SIOCADDMULTI and SIOCDELMULTI ioctls can be used to add or delete multicast addresses. The LeMAC recognizes a maximum of 12 multicast addresses. The SIOCRDCTRS and SIOCRDZCTRS ioctls can be used to read or ``read and clear'' the Ethernet driver counters. The argument to these two ioctls is a pointer to a counter structure, ctrreq, found in <net/if.h>. The SIOCENABLBACK and SIOCDISABLBACK ioctls can be used to enable and disable the interface loopback mode respectively. EXAMPLES
To obtain the physical address of the adapter, use the SIOCRPHYSADDR ioctl as in the following program example: #include <stdio.h> /* standard I/O */ #include <errno.h> /* error numbers */ #include <sys/socket.h> /* socket definitions */ #include <sys/ioctl.h> /* ioctls */ #include <net/if.h> /* generic interface structures */ main() { int s,i; struct ifdevea devea; /* Get a socket */ s = socket(AF_INET,SOCK_DGRAM,0); if (s < 0) { perror("socket"); exit(1); } strcpy(devea.ifr_name,"le0"); if (ioctl(s,SIOCRPHYSADDR,&devea) < 0) { perror(&devea.ifr_name[0]); exit(1); } printf("Address is "); for (i = 0; i < 6; i++) printf("%X ", devea.default_pa[i] & 0xff); printf(" "); close(s); } To enable external loopback, use the SIOCENABLEBACK ioctl as in the following program example: #include <stdio.h> /* standard I/O */ #include <errno.h> /* error numbers */ #include <sys/socket.h> /* socket definitions */ #include <sys/ioctl.h> /* ioctls */ #include <net/if.h> /* generic interface structures */ main() { int s; struct ifreq data; /* Get a socket */ s = socket(AF_INET,SOCK_DGRAM,0); if (s < 0) { perror("socket"); exit(1); } strcpy(data.ifr,"le0"); if (ioctl(s,SIOCENABLEBACK,&data) < 0) { perror("SIOCENABLEBACK:"); exit(1); } close(s); } ERRORS
The diagnostic error messages contain relevant information provided by the LeMAC. The interface was handed a message with addresses for- matted in an unsuitable address family, and the packet was dropped. The le driver was unable to allocate memory for internal data struc- tures. The IRQ for the LeMAC is missing from the CMOS configuration data or is incorrect. The IRQ for the LeMAC is missing from the CMOS configuration data or is incorrect. Too many multicast requests have been made. The shared memory block for the LeMAC's local RAM buffer is missing from the CMOS configuration data. The station address PROM on the LeMAC is corrupt or inaccessible. The hardware transmit queue has been overflowed. An attempt was made to delete the Ethernet broadcast address of ff-ff-ff-ff-ff.
