MirOS Manual: be(4)

BE(4)                  BSD Programmer's Manual (SPARC)                   BE(4)


     be - SPARC Fast Ethernet interface


     qec* at sbus? slot ? offset ?                  (sun4c/sun4m)
     be* at qec?                                    (sun4c/sun4m)


     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,501-2450).

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


     arp(4), hme(4), ie(4), ifmedia(4), inet(4), intro(4), le(4), netintro(4),
     qe(4), qec(4), sbus(4), hostname.if(5), ifconfig(8)


     OpenBSD support for the be first appeared in OpenBSD 2.4.
