HME(4)		       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual			HME(4)

NAME
     hme -- Sun	Microelectronics STP2002-STQ Ethernet interfaces device	driver

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

	   device miibus
	   device hme

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

	   if_hme_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The hme driver supports Sun Microelectronics STP2002-STQ ``Happy Meal
     Ethernet''	Fast Ethernet interfaces.

     All controllers supported by the hme driver have TCP checksum offload
     capability	for both receive and transmit, support for the reception and
     transmission of extended frames for vlan(4) and a 128-bit multicast hash
     filter.

HARDWARE
     The hme driver supports the on-board Ethernet interfaces of many Sun
     UltraSPARC	workstation and	server models.

     Cards supported by	the hme	driver include:

     +o	 Sun PCI SunSwift Adapter (``SUNW,hme'')
     +o	 Sun SBus SunSwift Adapter (``hme'' and	``SUNW,hme'')
     +o	 Sun PCI Sun100BaseT Adapter 2.0 (``SUNW,hme'')
     +o	 Sun SBus Sun100BaseT 2.0 (``SUNW,hme'')
     +o	 Sun PCI Quad FastEthernet Controller (``SUNW,qfe'')
     +o	 Sun SBus Quad FastEthernet Controller (``SUNW,qfe'')

NOTES
     On	sparc64	the hme	driver respects	the local-mac-address? system configu-
     ration variable which can be set in the Open Firmware boot	monitor	using
     the setenv	command	or by eeprom(8).  If set to ``false'' (the default),
     the hme driver will use the system's default MAC address for all of its
     devices.  If set to ``true'', the unique MAC address of each interface is
     used if present rather than the system's default MAC address.

     Supported interfaces having their own MAC address include on-board	ver-
     sions on boards equipped with more	than one Ethernet interface and	all
     add-on cards except the single-port SBus versions.

HISTORY
     The hme driver first appeared in NetBSD 1.5.  The first FreeBSD version
     to	include	it was FreeBSD 5.0.

AUTHORS
     The hme driver was	written	by Paul	Kranenburg <pk@NetBSD.org>.
