 NAME
      fddi - Fiber Distributed Data Interface Tools

 DESCRIPTION
      This manual entry provides general information on the HP-UX FDDI
      (Fiber Distributed Data Interface) link tools.

    Tools for HSC and EISA FDDI
      fddiif	     Display FDDI driver operating statistics in real-time.

      fddilink	     Display FDDI interface and network characteristics.

    Tools for PCI FDDI
      fddipciadmin	  Display FDDI interface, driver and network
			  statistics and characteristics.

    Tools for HP-PB FDDI and S700 Built-in FDDI
      fddiinit	     Initialize FDDI network interface; connect to FDDI
		     network.

      fddinet	     Display logical FDDI ring map information.

      fddistat	     Display status information for the FDDI interface.

      fddistop	     Stop and reset the FDDI interface.

    General Link Tools
      ifconfig	     Configure or display IP interface information.

      ioscan	     Scan system for devices, display hardware path, class
		     and description.

      lanadmin	     Display link information, RFC 1213 MIB II statistics,
		     reset the interface card, perform card self-test.

      lanscan	     Scan system for LAN devices, display hardware path,
		     station address (canonical format), instance number,
		     hardware state, interface name, IP interface state,
		     Network Management ID.

      linkloop	     Verify LAN connectivity with a link-level test frame.
		     Requires the Physical Point of Attachment number (PPA)
		     of the local interface and station address of the
		     remote station in canonical format.  The PPA is the
		     numeric portion of the interface name.  For example,
		     the interface lan2 has the PPA 2.	Use lanscan on the
		     remote system to get the remote station address in
		     canonical format.

      netfmt	     Format network trace and log files created with the
		     nettl utility (see below).	 FDDI entity names are FDDI

		     (HP-PB and S700 built-in FDDI), EISA_FDDI, HSC_FDDI and
		     PCI_FDDI.

      netstat	     Show network statistics for IP interfaces and upper-
		     layer protocols.

      nettl	     Start/stop network tracing and logging.  FDDI entity
		     names are FDDI (HP-PB and S700 built-in FDDI),
		     EISA_FDDI, HSC_FDDI and PCI_FDDI.

      ping	     Verify IP/ICMP connectivity to remote system.

      syslogd	     Read and log system messages (the FDDI drivers log
		     system messages using syslog routines).

      what	     Get version identification information.  Use what
		     /stand/vmunix to determine if the correct FDDI driver
		     has been installed, according to the following list:

		     fddi (for HP-PB FDDI), fddi0 (for EISA FDDI), fddi2
		     (for S700 built-in FDDI), fddi3 (for HSC FDDI), fddi4
		     (for PCI FDDI).

      FDDI station addresses are represented as a series of hexadecimal
      digits using canonical format, or wire ("native") format.	 The
      canonical format uses Least Significant Bit (LSB) order.	Wire
      ("native") format uses Most Significant Bit (MSB) order.	Most HP-UX
      FDDI and network utilities use canonical format (fddilink and fddiif
      are two exceptions).  The fddinet and fddistat commands display the
      addresses in canonical format by default and have a -n option to
      display the addresses in "native" (wire) format.
