NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     be - SPARC64 Fast Ethernet interface

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     qec* at sbus? slot ? offset ?
     be* at qec?

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The be interface provides access to the 10Mb/s  and  100Mb/s
(half duplex
     only)  Ethernet networks.  The be is found on the Sun 10/100
Mbit Ethernet
     boards (Sun part number SUNW,501-2655).

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

     The  be  is  not capable of link autonegotiation, so a media
type must be
     specified with ifconfig(8).  The supported media types are:

           media 100baseTX [mediaopt half-duplex]
                       Use 100Mbps, half duplex

           media 10baseT [mediaopt half-duplex]
                       Use 10Mbps, half duplex

HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

     OpenBSD support for the be first appeared in OpenBSD 3.0.
