fcoei - Fibre Channel Over Ethernet Initiator Mode Driver


The fcoei driver is a pseudo device driver which encapsulates the raw Fibre Channel frames into FCoE ethernet frames, or decapsulates FC frames from FCoE ethernet frames. The supported FC frames include extended/basic link services, common transport frames and initiator mode FCP frames.

The fcoei driver interfaces with the Sun Fibre Channel port driver, fp(7D), and the FCoE transport driver, fcoe(7D).
