6 config UML_NET
7 bool "Virtual network device"
8 help
9 While the User-Mode port cannot directly talk to any physical
10 hardware devices, this choice and the following transport options
11 provide one or more virtual network devices through which the UML
12 kernels can talk to each other, the host, and with the host's help,
13 machines on the outside world.
15 For more information, including explanations of the networking and
16 sample configurations, see
17 <http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net/networking.html>.
19 If you'd like to be able to enable networking in the User-Mode
20 linux environment, say Y; otherwise say N. Note that you must
21 enable at least one of the following transport options to actually
22 make use of UML networking.
24 config UML_NET_ETHERTAP
25 bool "Ethertap transport"
26 depends on UML_NET
27 help
28 The Ethertap User-Mode Linux network transport allows a single
29 running UML to exchange packets with its host over one of the
30 host's Ethertap devices, such as /dev/tap0. Additional running
31 UMLs can use additional Ethertap devices, one per running UML.
32 While the UML believes it's on a (multi-device, broadcast) virtual
33 Ethernet network, it's in fact communicating over a point-to-point
34 link with the host.
36 To use this, your host kernel must have support for Ethertap
37 devices. Also, if your host kernel is 2.4.x, it must have
38 CONFIG_NETLINK_DEV configured as Y or M.
40 For more information, see
41 <http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net/networking.html> That site
42 has examples of the UML command line to use to enable Ethertap
43 networking.
45 If you'd like to set up an IP network with the host and/or the
46 outside world, say Y to this, the Daemon Transport and/or the
47 Slip Transport. You'll need at least one of them, but may choose
48 more than one without conflict. If you don't need UML networking,
49 say N.
51 config UML_NET_TUNTAP
52 bool "TUN/TAP transport"
53 depends on UML_NET
54 help
55 The UML TUN/TAP network transport allows a UML instance to exchange
56 packets with the host over a TUN/TAP device. This option will only
57 work with a 2.4 host, unless you've applied the TUN/TAP patch to
58 your 2.2 host kernel.
60 To use this transport, your host kernel must have support for TUN/TAP
61 devices, either built-in or as a module.
63 config UML_NET_SLIP
64 bool "SLIP transport"
65 depends on UML_NET
66 help
67 The slip User-Mode Linux network transport allows a running UML to
68 network with its host over a point-to-point link. Unlike Ethertap,
69 which can carry any Ethernet frame (and hence even non-IP packets),
70 the slip transport can only carry IP packets.
72 To use this, your host must support slip devices.
74 For more information, see
75 <http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net/networking.html>. That site
76 has examples of the UML command line to use to enable slip
77 networking, and details of a few quirks with it.
79 The Ethertap Transport is preferred over slip because of its
80 limitations. If you prefer slip, however, say Y here. Otherwise
81 choose the Multicast transport (to network multiple UMLs on
82 multiple hosts), Ethertap (to network with the host and the
83 outside world), and/or the Daemon transport (to network multiple
84 UMLs on a single host). You may choose more than one without
85 conflict. If you don't need UML networking, say N.
87 config UML_NET_DAEMON
88 bool "Daemon transport"
89 depends on UML_NET
90 help
91 This User-Mode Linux network transport allows one or more running
92 UMLs on a single host to communicate with each other, but not to
93 the host.
95 To use this form of networking, you'll need to run the UML
96 networking daemon on the host.
98 For more information, see
99 <http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net/networking.html> That site
100 has examples of the UML command line to use to enable Daemon
101 networking.
103 If you'd like to set up a network with other UMLs on a single host,
104 say Y. If you need a network between UMLs on multiple physical
105 hosts, choose the Multicast Transport. To set up a network with
106 the host and/or other IP machines, say Y to the Ethertap or Slip
107 transports. You'll need at least one of them, but may choose
108 more than one without conflict. If you don't need UML networking,
109 say N.
111 config UML_NET_MCAST
112 bool "Multicast transport"
113 depends on UML_NET
114 help
115 This Multicast User-Mode Linux network transport allows multiple
116 UMLs (even ones running on different host machines!) to talk to
117 each other over a virtual ethernet network. However, it requires
118 at least one UML with one of the other transports to act as a
119 bridge if any of them need to be able to talk to their hosts or any
120 other IP machines.
122 To use this, your host kernel(s) must support IP Multicasting.
124 For more information, see
125 <http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net/networking.html> That site
126 has examples of the UML command line to use to enable Multicast
127 networking, and notes about the security of this approach.
129 If you need UMLs on multiple physical hosts to communicate as if
130 they shared an Ethernet network, say Y. If you need to communicate
131 with other IP machines, make sure you select one of the other
132 transports (possibly in addition to Multicast; they're not
133 exclusive). If you don't need to network UMLs say N to each of
134 the transports.
136 config UML_NET_PCAP
137 bool "pcap transport"
138 depends on UML_NET && EXPERIMENTAL
139 help
140 The pcap transport makes a pcap packet stream on the host look
141 like an ethernet device inside UML. This is useful for making
142 UML act as a network monitor for the host. You must have libcap
143 installed in order to build the pcap transport into UML.
145 For more information, see
146 <http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net/networking.html> That site
147 has examples of the UML command line to use to enable this option.
149 If you intend to use UML as a network monitor for the host, say
150 Y here. Otherwise, say N.
152 config UML_NET_SLIRP
153 bool "SLiRP transport"
154 depends on UML_NET
155 help
156 The SLiRP User-Mode Linux network transport allows a running UML
157 to network by invoking a program that can handle SLIP encapsulated
158 packets. This is commonly (but not limited to) the application
159 known as SLiRP, a program that can re-socket IP packets back onto
160 the host on which it is run. Only IP packets are supported,
161 unlike other network transports that can handle all Ethernet
162 frames. In general, slirp allows the UML the same IP connectivity
163 to the outside world that the host user is permitted, and unlike
164 other transports, SLiRP works without the need of root level
165 privleges, setuid binaries, or SLIP devices on the host. This
166 also means not every type of connection is possible, but most
167 situations can be accomodated with carefully crafted slirp
168 commands that can be passed along as part of the network device's
169 setup string. The effect of this transport on the UML is similar
170 that of a host behind a firewall that masquerades all network
171 connections passing through it (but is less secure).
173 To use this you should first have slirp compiled somewhere
174 accessible on the host, and have read its documentation. If you
175 don't need UML networking, say N.
