UHSO(4)			 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		       UHSO(4)

NAME
     uhso -- support for several HSxPA devices from Option N.V.

SYNOPSIS
     The module	can be loaded at boot time by placing the following line in
     loader.conf(5):

	   uhso_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The uhso driver provides support for several HSxPA	devices	from Option
     N.V. that are based on their packet interface.  Each device has a set of
     serial ports and a	raw IP packet interface.  The serial ports of the de-
     vice are accessed through the ucom(4) driver which	makes them behave like
     tty(4) devices.  The packet interface is exposed as a network interface.

     Establishing a connection on the packet interface is achieved by using
     the proprietary AT	commands "AT_OWANCALL" and "AT_OWANDATA" on any	of the
     available serial ports.

     The network interface must	be configured manually using the data obtain
     from these	calls.

     Each device usually have at least two or more serial ports, their indi-
     vidual purpose can	be identified through sysctl(8).  Ports	identified as
     "Modem" features a	normal modem interface that can	be used	with PPP.
     Ports identified as "Diagnostic" uses a proprietary binary	interface used
     for firmware upgrades, this port does not have a AT command interface and
     can not be	used to	control	the device.  Other ports features an AT	com-
     mand interface that can be	used for normal	device control.

HARDWARE
     The uhso driver should work with most devices from	Option.	 The following
     devices have been verified	to work

     +o	 Option	GlobeSurfer iCON 7.2 (new firmware)
     +o	 Option	GlobeTrotter Max 7.2 (new firmware)
     +o	 Option	iCON 225
     +o	 Option	iCON 452
     +o	 Option	iCON 505

     The device	features a mass	storage	device referred	to as "Zero-CD"	which
     contains drivers for Microsoft Windows; this is the default mode for the
     device.  The uhso driver automatically switches the device	from "Zero-CD"
     mode to modem mode.  This behavior	can be disabled	by setting
     hw.usb.uhso.auto_switch to	0 using	sysctl(8).

EXAMPLES
     Establishing a packet interface connection	using the AT command interface
     available at one of the serial ports

	   AT+CGDCONT=1,,"apn.provider"
	   AT_OWANCALL=1,1,1
	   OK
	   _OWANCALL=1,1

	   AT_OWANDATA=1
	   _OWANDATA: 1, 10.11.12.13, 0.0.0.0, 10.2.3.4, 10.2.3.5, \
		   0.0.0.0, 0.0.0.0, 72000

     Configuring the interface

	   ifconfig uhso0 10.11.12.13 up
	   route add default -interface	uhso0
	   echo	"nameserver 10.2.3.4" >	/etc/resolv.conf
	   echo	"nameserver 10.2.3.5" >> /etc/resolv.conf

     The connection can	be terminated with

	   AT_OWANCALL=1,0,1
