NAME


fcoei - Fibre Channel Over Ethernet Initiator Mode Driver

SYNOPSIS


fcoei@port,0


DESCRIPTION


The fcoei driver is a pseudo device driver which encapsulates the raw
Fibre Channel frames into FCoE ethernet frames, or decapsulates FC frames
from FCoE ethernet frames. The supported FC frames include extended/basic
link services, common transport frames and initiator mode FCP frames.


The fcoei driver interfaces with the Sun Fibre Channel port driver,
fp(4D), and the FCoE transport driver, fcoe(4D).
