NG_GIF_DEMUX(4) MidnightBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual NG_GIF_DEMUX(4)

NAME

ng_gif_demux — demultiplexer for packets from ng_gif(4) nodes

SYNOPSIS

#include <netgraph/ng_gif_demux.h>

DESCRIPTION

The ng_gif_demux netgraph node type demultiplexes the output from ng_gif(4) nodes in the netgraph(4) networking subsystem.

The gif hook is meant to be connected to the lower or orphans hook of an ng_gif(4) node. The inet, inet6, atalk, ipx, atm, natm, and ns hooks output frames of the given type when they are received on the gif hook. When a frame is received on one of these hooks, it is encapsulated and sent out the gif hook.
