FWIP(4)                  BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                  FWIP(4)

NAME
     fwip -- IP over FireWire driver

SYNOPSIS
     kldload firewire
     kldload if_fwip

     or

     device firewire
     device fwip

DESCRIPTION
     The fwip driver provides standard IP over FireWire (IEEE 1394) based on
     the protocols described in RFC 2734 and RFC 3146.

     The firewire(4) and fwohci(4) drivers must be configured in the kernel as
     well.

     This driver supports polling(4) as well if it is compiled with the
     DEVICE_POLLING option.

HISTORY
     The fwip device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 5.3.

BUGS
     This driver currently does not support the MCAP protocol for multicast IP
     over FireWire.  Multicast packets are treated as broadcast packets which
     is sufficient for most trivial uses of multicast.
