NAME
     nca.if - the NCA configuration file that specifies  physical
     interfaces

SYNOPSIS
     /etc/nca/nca.if

DESCRIPTION
     Specify the physical interfaces for which the  Solaris  Net-
     work  Cache  and Accelerator ("NCA") feature will be config-
     ured in the nca.if configuration  file.  List  the  physical
     interfaces  in  the  file, one per line. To configure NCA to
     listen on all physical  interfaces  present  on  the  system
     backed  by  a  hostname.{interface_name},  then list only an
     asterik ("*") in nca.if.

     When the ncakmod(1) initialization script is invoked  during
     system  boot,  it  will  attempt  to configure each physical
     interface  specified   in   the   nca.if   file   by   using
     ncaconfd(1M).  Note  that  there  must  be  an  accompanying
     hostname.{interface_name} file and an  entry  in  /etc/hosts
     for the contents of hostname.{interface_name}.

     You must reboot in order to implement changes to the  nca.if
     file.

EXAMPLES
  x86
     Example 1: nca.if on x86

     The following is an example of an nca.if file that would  be
     used on an x86 system:

     iprb1
     iprb6
     iprb8

  SPARC
     Example 2: nca.if on SPARC

     The following is an example of an nca.if file that would  be
     used on a SPARC system:

     hme2
     hme3
     hme4


  All Platforms
     Example 3: Configuring NCA to Listen on All Physical  Inter-
     faces

     The following example shows the contents of an  nca.if  file
     that would be used to configure either platform to listen on
     all physical interfaces present on the system:

     *

FILES
     /etc/nca/nca.if
           Lists the physical interfaces on which NCA will run.

     /etc/hostname.{}{0-9}
           Lists  all  physical  interfaces  configured  on   the
           server.

     /etc/hosts
           Lists all  host  names  associated  with  the  server.
           Entries  in  this  file  must  match  with  entries in
           /etc/hostname.{}{0-9} for NCA to function.
