  8           ATM is a high-speed networking technology for Local Area Networks
  9           and Wide Area Networks.  It uses a fixed packet size and is
 10           connection oriented, allowing for the negotiation of minimum
 11           bandwidth requirements.
 13           In order to participate in an ATM network, your Linux box needs an
 14           ATM networking card. If you have that, say Y here and to the driver
 15           of your ATM card below.
 17           Note that you need a set of user-space programs to actually make use
 18           of ATM.  See the file <file:Documentation/networking/atm.txt> for
 19           further details.
 21 config ATM_CLIP
 22         tristate "Classical IP over ATM"
 23         depends on ATM && INET
 24         help
 25           Classical IP over ATM for PVCs and SVCs, supporting InARP and
 26           ATMARP. If you want to communication with other IP hosts on your ATM
 27           network, you will typically either say Y here or to "LAN Emulation
 28           (LANE)" below.
 30 config ATM_CLIP_NO_ICMP
 31         bool "Do NOT send ICMP if no neighbour"
 32         depends on ATM_CLIP
 33         help
 34           Normally, an "ICMP host unreachable" message is sent if a neighbour
 35           cannot be reached because there is no VC to it in the kernel's
 36           ATMARP table. This may cause problems when ATMARP table entries are
 37           briefly removed during revalidation. If you say Y here, packets to
 38           such neighbours are silently discarded instead.
 40 config ATM_LANE
 41         tristate "LAN Emulation (LANE) support"
 42         depends on ATM
 43         help
 44           LAN Emulation emulates services of existing LANs across an ATM
 45           network. Besides operating as a normal ATM end station client, Linux
 46           LANE client can also act as an proxy client bridging packets between
 47           ELAN and Ethernet segments. You need LANE if you want to try MPOA.
 49 config ATM_MPOA
 50         tristate "Multi-Protocol Over ATM (MPOA) support"
 51         depends on ATM && INET && ATM_LANE!=n
 52         help
 53           Multi-Protocol Over ATM allows ATM edge devices such as routers,
 54           bridges and ATM attached hosts establish direct ATM VCs across
 55           subnetwork boundaries. These shortcut connections bypass routers
 56           enhancing overall network performance.
 58 config ATM_BR2684
 59         tristate "RFC1483/2684 Bridged protocols"
 60         depends on ATM && INET
 61         help
 62           ATM PVCs can carry ethernet PDUs according to RFC2684 (formerly 1483)
 63           This device will act like an ethernet from the kernels point of view,
 64           with the traffic being carried by ATM PVCs (currently 1 PVC/device).
 65           This is sometimes used over DSL lines.  If in doubt, say N.
 67 config ATM_BR2684_IPFILTER
 68         bool "Per-VC IP filter kludge"
 69         depends on ATM_BR2684
 70         help
 71           This is an experimental mechanism for users who need to terminate a
 72           large number of IP-only vcc's.  Do not enable this unless you are sure
 73           you know what you are doing.
