IFPORT(8)                                               IFPORT(8)

NAME
       ifport  - select the transceiver type for a network inter-
       face

SYNOPSIS
       ifport interface [auto|10baseT|10base2|aui|100baseT|##]

DESCRIPTION
       Ifport sets the transceiver type for the specified network
       interface,  for  drivers that support multiple transceiver
       types.  If a type is not specified on  the  command  line,
       then the current type is displayed.  The type can be spec-
       ified either numerically or by keyword.  The five standard
       transceiver   types  (auto,  10baseT,  10base2,  aui,  and
       100baseT) correspond to codes 0 to 3, for  all  the  Linux
       PCMCIA  network drivers.  The keyword match is case insen-
       sitive.

       The network drivers may not reconfigure a card for  a  new
       transceiver  type if the interface is already open.  It is
       best to invoke ifport prior to configuring  the  interface
       with  ifconfig to ensure that the new setting takes effect
       immediately.
