HME(4)                   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                   HME(4)

NAME
     hme -- Sun Microelectronics STP2002-STQ Ethernet interfaces device driver

SYNOPSIS
     device miibus
     device hme

DESCRIPTION
     The hme driver supports Sun Microelectronics STP2002-STQ Fast Ethernet
     interfaces.

HARDWARE
     The hme driver supports the on-board Ethernet interfaces of many Sun
     UltraSPARC workstation and server models.

     Cards supported by the hme driver include:

     o   Sun PCI SunSwift Adapter (``SUNW,hme'')
     o   Sun SBus SunSwift Adapter (``hme'' and ``SUNW,hme'')
     o   Sun PCI Sun100BaseT Adapter 2.0 (``SUNW,hme'')
     o   Sun SBus Sun100BaseT 2.0 (``SUNW,hme'')
     o   Sun PCI Quad FastEthernet Controller (``SUNW,qfe'')
     o   Sun SBus Quad FastEthernet Controller (``SUNW,qfe'')

NOTES
     On sparc64 the hme driver respects the local-mac-address? system configu-
     ration variable which can be set in the Open Firmware boot monitor using
     the setenv command or by eeprom(8).  If set to ``false'' (the default),
     the hme driver will use the system's default MAC address for all of its
     devices.  If set to ``true'', the unique MAC address of each interface is
     used if present rather than the system's default MAC address.

     Supported interfaces having their own MAC address include on-board ver-
     sions on boards equipped with more than one Ethernet interface and all
     add-on cards except the single-port SBus versions.
