IPHETH(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		     IPHETH(4)

NAME
     ipheth -- USB Apple iPhone/iPad tethered Ethernet driver

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

	   if_ipheth_load="YES"

     Alternatively, to compile this driver into	the kernel, place the follow-
     ing lines in your kernel configuration file:

	   device uhci
	   device ohci
	   device usb
	   device miibus
	   device uether
	   device ipheth

DESCRIPTION
     The ipheth	driver provides	support	for network access through Apple
     iPhone and	iPad devices, often referred to	as USB tethering.

     ipheth should work	with any Apple iPhone or iPad device.  In most cases
     this must be explicitly enabled on	the device first.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).	The
     device does not support different media types or options.

HARDWARE
     The following devices are supported by the	ipheth driver:

     +o	 Apple iPhone tethering	(all models)
     +o	 Apple iPad tethering (all models)

SEE ALSO
     arp(4), cdce(4), intro(4),	netintro(4), urndis(4),	usb(4),	ifconfig(8)
     usbconfig(8)

HISTORY
     The ipheth	device driver first appeared in	FreeBSD	8.2.

AUTHORS
     The ipheth	driver was written by Hans Petter Selasky
     <hselasky@FreeBSD.org>.

BUGS
     Some devices may need to be manually configured to	use an alternative
     configuration with	the usbconfig(8) utility.  A command similar to
	   usbconfig -u	1 -a 2 set_config 3
     may be required if	the device is not recognised automatically by ipheth
     after it is connected.
