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
     following 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.
