NG_RFC1490(4)		 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		 NG_RFC1490(4)

NAME
     ng_rfc1490	-- RFC 1490 netgraph node type

SYNOPSIS
     #include <netgraph/ng_rfc1490.h>

DESCRIPTION
     The rfc1490 node type performs protocol encapsulation, de-encapsulation,
     and multiplexing according	to RFC 1490 (which has since been updated by
     RFC 2427).	 This particular type of encapsulation is often	used on	top of
     frame relay DLCI channels.

     The downstream hook is used to transmit and receive encapsulated frames.
     On	the other side of the node, the	inet and ppp hooks are used to trans-
     mit and receive raw IP frames and PPP frames, respectively. PPP frames
     are transmitted and received according to RFC 1973; in particular,	frames
     appearing on the ppp hook begin with the PPP protocol number.

     Typically the inet	hook is	connected to the inet hook of an ng_iface(4)
     node.

HOOKS
     This node type supports the following hooks:

     downstream	  Connects to the RFC 1490 peer	entity.

     inet	  Transmits and	receives raw IP	frames.

     ppp	  Transmits and	receives PPP frames.

CONTROL	MESSAGES
     This node type only supports the generic control messages.

SHUTDOWN
     This node shuts down upon receipt of a NGM_SHUTDOWN control message, or
     when all hooks have been disconnected.

BUGS
     Not all of	RFC 1490 is implemented.
