FWIP(4)		       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		       FWIP(4)

NAME
     fwip -- IP	over FireWire driver

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device firewire
	   device fwip

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following lines in	loader.conf(5):

	   firewire_load="YES"
	   if_fwip_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The fwip driver provides standard IP over FireWire	(IEEE 1394) based on
     the protocols described in	RFC 2734 and RFC 3146.

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

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

SEE ALSO
     arp(4), firewire(4), fwe(4), fwohci(4), netintro(4), polling(4),
     ifconfig(8), kldload(8), sysctl(8)

HISTORY
     The fwip device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 5.3.

AUTHORS
     The fwip driver and this manual page were written by Doug Rabson, based
     on	earlier	work by	Hidetoshi Shimokawa.

BUGS
     This driver currently does	not support the	MCAP protocol for multicast IP
     over FireWire.  Multicast packets are treated as broadcast	packets	which
     is	sufficient for most trivial uses of multicast.
