     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-

     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 Jacobsen header compression, under control of the link0 and link1 op-
     tions to ifconfig(8):

                Apply VJ compression to outgoing packets on this interface,
                and assume that incoming packets require decompression.
                Check incoming packets for Van Jacobsen compression; if they
                appear to be compressed, automatically set link0.

     The default values are on for link1 and off for link0.


     bpf(4), isdnd.rc(5), isdnd(8), tcpdump(8)


     The irip device driver and this man page were written by Hellmuth
     Michaelis <hm@kts.org>.
