12.6. FDDI

FDDI device names are `fddi0', `fddi1', `fddi2' etc. The first card detected by the kernel is assigned `fddi0' : the rest are assigned sequentially in the order that they are detected.

Larry Stefani, lstefani@ultranet.com, has developed a driver for the Digital Equipment Corporation FDDI EISA and PCI cards.

Kernel Compile Options:

       Network device support  --->
            [*] FDDI driver support
            [*] Digital DEFEA and DEFPA adapter support

When you have your kernel built and installed to support the FDDI driver, configuration of the FDDI interface is almost identical to that of an ethernet interface. You just specify the appropriate FDDI interface name in the ifconfig and route commands. Was this section helpful? Why not Donate $2.50?
