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

NAME
     fwip -- IP	over FireWire driver

SYNOPSIS
     kldload firewire
     kldload if_fwip

     or

     device fwip
     device firewire
     device fwohci

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.

HISTORY
     The fwip device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 5.3.

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.

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

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