QE(4)                      Kernel Interfaces Manual                      QE(4)

NAME
     qe -- SPARC Fast Ethernet interface

SYNOPSIS
     qec* at sbus? slot ? offset ?
     qe* at qec?

DESCRIPTION
     The qe interface provides access to 10Mb/s Ethernet networks via the AMD
     Am79C940 (MACE) Ethernet controller.  The qe is found on the Sun
     QuadEthernet boards (Sun part number SUNW,501-2062).

     Each of the host's network addresses is specified at boot time with an
     SIOCSIFADDR ioctl(2).  The qe interface employs the address resolution
     protocol described in arp(4) to dynamically map between Internet and
     Ethernet addresses on the local network.
