1 # 2 # Appletalk driver configuration 3 # 4 config ATALK 5 tristate "Appletalk protocol support" 6 select LLC 7 ---help--- 8 AppleTalk is the protocol that Apple computers can use to communicate 9 on a network. If your Linux box is connected to such a network and you 10 wish to connect to it, say Y. You will need to use the netatalk package 11 so that your Linux box can act as a print and file server for Macs as 12 well as access AppleTalk printers. Check out 13 <http://www.zettabyte.net/netatalk/> on the WWW for details. 14 EtherTalk is the name used for AppleTalk over Ethernet and the 15 cheaper and slower LocalTalk is AppleTalk over a proprietary Apple 16 network using serial links. EtherTalk and LocalTalk are fully 17 supported by Linux. 18 19 General information about how to connect Linux, Windows machines and 20 Macs is on the WWW at <http://www.eats.com/linux_mac_win.html>. The 21 NET3-4-HOWTO, available from 22 <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>, contains valuable 23 information as well. 24 25 To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be 26 called appletalk. You almost certainly want to compile it as a 27 module so you can restart your AppleTalk stack without rebooting 28 your machine. I hear that the GNU boycott of Apple is over, so 29 even politically correct people are allowed to say Y here. 30 31 config DEV_APPLETALK 32 tristate "Appletalk interfaces support" 33 depends on ATALK 34 help 35 AppleTalk is the protocol that Apple computers can use to communicate 36 on a network. If your Linux box is connected to such a network, and wish 37 to do IP over it, or you have a LocalTalk card and wish to use it to 38 connect to the AppleTalk network, say Y. 39 40 41 config LTPC 42 tristate "Apple/Farallon LocalTalk PC support" 43 depends on DEV_APPLETALK && (ISA || EISA) && ISA_DMA_API 44 help 45 This allows you to use the AppleTalk PC card to connect to LocalTalk 46 networks. The card is also known as the Farallon PhoneNet PC card. 47 If you are in doubt, this card is the one with the 65C02 chip on it. 48 You also need version 1.3.3 or later of the netatalk package. 49 This driver is experimental, which means that it may not work. 50 See the file <file:Documentation/networking/ltpc.txt>. 51 52 config COPS 53 tristate "COPS LocalTalk PC support" 54 depends on DEV_APPLETALK && (ISA || EISA) 55 help 56 This allows you to use COPS AppleTalk cards to connect to LocalTalk 57 networks. You also need version 1.3.3 or later of the netatalk 58 package. This driver is experimental, which means that it may not 59 work. This driver will only work if you choose "AppleTalk DDP" 60 networking support, above. 61 Please read the file <file:Documentation/networking/cops.txt>. 62 63 config COPS_DAYNA 64 bool "Dayna firmware support" 65 depends on COPS 66 help 67 Support COPS compatible cards with Dayna style firmware (Dayna 68 DL2000/ Daynatalk/PC (half length), COPS LT-95, Farallon PhoneNET PC 69 III, Farallon PhoneNET PC II). 70 71 config COPS_TANGENT 72 bool "Tangent firmware support" 73 depends on COPS 74 help 75 Support COPS compatible cards with Tangent style firmware (Tangent 76 ATB_II, Novell NL-1000, Daystar Digital LT-200. 77 78 config IPDDP 79 tristate "Appletalk-IP driver support" 80 depends on DEV_APPLETALK && ATALK 81 ---help--- 82 This allows IP networking for users who only have AppleTalk 83 networking available. This feature is experimental. With this 84 driver, you can encapsulate IP inside AppleTalk (e.g. if your Linux 85 box is stuck on an AppleTalk only network) or decapsulate (e.g. if 86 you want your Linux box to act as an Internet gateway for a zoo of 87 AppleTalk connected Macs). Please see the file 88 <file:Documentation/networking/ipddp.txt> for more information. 89 90 If you say Y here, the AppleTalk-IP support will be compiled into 91 the kernel. In this case, you can either use encapsulation or 92 decapsulation, but not both. With the following two questions, you 93 decide which one you want. 94 95 To compile the AppleTalk-IP support as a module, choose M here: the 96 module will be called ipddp. 97 In this case, you will be able to use both encapsulation and 98 decapsulation simultaneously, by loading two copies of the module 99 and specifying different values for the module option ipddp_mode. 100 101 config IPDDP_ENCAP 102 bool "IP to Appletalk-IP Encapsulation support" 103 depends on IPDDP 104 help 105 If you say Y here, the AppleTalk-IP code will be able to encapsulate 106 IP packets inside AppleTalk frames; this is useful if your Linux box 107 is stuck on an AppleTalk network (which hopefully contains a 108 decapsulator somewhere). Please see 109 <file:Documentation/networking/ipddp.txt> for more information.
