FWIP(4)                    Kernel Interfaces Manual                    FWIP(4)

NAME
     fwip -- IP over IEEE1394 driver

SYNOPSIS
     fwip* at ieee1394if?

DESCRIPTION
     The fwip driver provides standard IP over IEEE1394 based on the protocols
     described in RFC 2734 and RFC 3146.

     The ieee1394if(4) and fwohci(4) drivers must be configured in the kernel
     as well.

SEE ALSO
     arp(4), fwohci(4), ieee1394if(4), netintro(4), ifconfig(8), sysctl(8)

HISTORY
     The fwip device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 5.3.  It was added to
     NetBSD 4.0.

AUTHORS
     The fwip driver and this manual page were written by Doug Rabson, based
     on earlier work by Hidetoshi Shimokawa.  It was added to NetBSD 4.0 by
     KIYOHARA Takashi.

BUGS
     This driver currently does not support the MCAP protocol for multicast IP
     over IEEE1394.  Multicast packets are treated as broadcast packets which
     is sufficient for most trivial uses of multicast.
