NAME
     urndis -- USB Remote NDIS Ethernet	device

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device ehci
	   device uhci
	   device ohci
	   device xhci
	   device usb
	   device miibus
	   device uether
	   device urndis

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

	   if_urndis_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The urndis	driver provides	Ethernet access	over Remote NDIS (RNDIS), al-
     lowing mobile devices such	as phones and tablets to provide network ac-
     cess.  It is often	referred to as USB tethering, and in most cases	must
     be	explicitly enabled on the device.

     urndis should work	with any USB RNDIS devices, such as those commonly
     found on Android devices.	It does	not support different media types or
     options.  For more	information on configuring this	device,	see
     ifconfig(8).

HARDWARE
     The urndis	driver supports	the "tethering"	functionality of many Android
     devices.
