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

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

SYNOPSIS
     device miibus
     device hme

DESCRIPTION
     The hme driver supports Sun Microelectronics STP2002-STQ Fast Ethernet
     interfaces.

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.
