irip -- Raw IP over ISDN network driver
pseudo-device irip count
The irip driver interfaces the IP subsystem of the operating system with the ISDN layer so that transport of IP packets over an ISDN link is pos- sible. The driver just packs IP packets without anything appended or prepended into raw HDLC packets on the B channel and transfers them to a remote site. IP packets received from the remote site are queued into the local IP protocol stack. The format of the resulting packet on the B channel is: (HDLC opening flag) (IP-packet) (CRC) (HDLC closing flag) In the case where an IP packet for a remote site arrives in the driver and no connection has been established yet, the driver communicates with the isdnd(8) daemon to establish a connection. The driver has support for interfacing to the bpf(4) subsystem for using tcpdump(8) with the irip interfaces. The driver optionally (when compiled with the IRIP_VJ option) provides Van Jacobson header compression, under control of the link0 and link1 options to ifconfig(8): link0 Apply VJ compression to outgoing packets on this interface, and assume that incoming packets require decompression. link1 Check incoming packets for Van Jacobson compres- sion; if they appear to be compressed, automati- cally set link0. The default values are on for link1 and off for link0.
