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:
Use 100Mbps, half duplex
Use 10Mbps, half duplex
arp(4), ifmedia(4), inet(4), intro(4), netintro(4), sbus(4), ifconfig(8)
Support for the be first appeared in NetBSD 1.4.
