SYNOPSIS

To compile support for the fwe driver into your kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file:


.Cd "device firewire"


.Cd "device fwe"

Alternatively, to load the fwe driver at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5):
if_fwe_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

The fwe driver provides non-standard Ethernet emulation over FireWire (IEEE 1394).

firewire(4) and fwohci(4) must be configured in the kernel as well.

This driver exploits asynchronous stream over IEEE 1394 to carry Ethernet frames. The stream channel can be specified by the hw.firewire.fwe.stream_ch sysctl(8).

This driver supports polling(4) as well if it is compiled with the DEVICE_POLLING option.
