Driver for the USB CDC NCM network control module
io-pkt-variant -d ncm ... &
where variant is one of v4, v4-hc, or v6-hc.
|When you use the pnp option, the DLL remains loaded and connected to the USB stack. Ethernet interfaces are created as devices are inserted. If you use ifconfig ncmX destroy to remove the last interface, the DLL is unloaded. This means that the driver currently doesn't support being removed and inserted again.|
The devnp-ncm.so driver manages the USB CDC NCM network control module. This is a native io-pkt driver; its interface names are in the form ncmX, where X is an integer.
Launcher applications that get notifications of device insertions and removals can use the busnum and devnum options. These applications mount the DLL to target specific devices connected to the USB. When the device is removed, it is expected that the launcher will also unmount the interface associated with interface. For io-pkt* drivers, you can't use umount to unload the DLL, but you can use ifconfig's destroy command to unload DLL.
The driver provides an additional interface serncmX under /dev for AT commands. You can send AT command and receive response through this interface.
Some devices support hardware checksums, although some might do so in only one direction; to determine if your device does, type:
and look for the following in the list of supported options:
You can then use ifconfig to enable or disable whichever of these options your device supports.
|Native io-pkt and ported NetBSD drivers don't put entries into the /dev/io-net namespace, so a waitfor command for such an entry won't work properly in buildfiles or scripts. Use if_up -p instead; for example, instead of waitfor /dev/io-net/ncm0, use if_up -p ncm0.|
Start the v4 TCP/IP variant of io-pkt using the devnp-ncm.so driver:
io-pkt-v4-hc -d ncm verbose -ptcpip & ifconfig ncm0 10.184
Unload the DLL:
ifconfig ncm0 down ifconfig ncm0 destroy
devn-*, devnp-*, ifconfig, io-pkt, nicinfo
