VETHER(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		     VETHER(4)

NAME
     vether -- virtual Ethernet	interface

SYNOPSIS
     pseudo-device vether

DESCRIPTION
     The vether	interface simulates a normal Ethernet interface	by encapsulat-
     ing standard network frames with an Ethernet header, specifically for use
     as	a member in a bridge(4).

     To	use vether the administrator needs to configure	an address onto	the
     interface so that packets can be routed to	it.  An	Ethernet header	will
     be	prepended and, if the vether interface is a member of a	bridge(4), the
     frame will	show up	there.

     ng_pppoe(4), vlan(4), ifconfig(8)
