# # DECnet configuration # config DECNET tristate "DECnet Support" ---help--- The DECnet networking protocol was used in many products made by Digital (now Compaq). It provides reliable stream and sequenced packet communications over which run a variety of services similar to those which run over TCP/IP. To find some tools to use with the kernel layer support, please look at Patrick Caulfield's web site: <http://linux-decnet.sourceforge.net/>. More detailed documentation is available in <file:Documentation/networking/decnet.txt>. Be sure to say Y to "/proc file system support" and "Sysctl support" below when using DECnet, since you will need sysctl support to aid in configuration at run time. The DECnet code is also available as a module ( = code which can be inserted in and removed from the running kernel whenever you want). The module is called decnet. config DECNET_ROUTER bool "DECnet: router support" depends on DECNET select FIB_RULES ---help--- Add support for turning your DECnet Endnode into a level 1 or 2 router. This is an experimental, but functional option. If you do say Y here, then make sure that you also say Y to "Kernel/User network link driver", "Routing messages" and "Network packet filtering". The first two are required to allow configuration via rtnetlink (you will need Alexey Kuznetsov's iproute2 package from <ftp://ftp.tux.org/pub/net/ip-routing/>). The "Network packet filtering" option will be required for the forthcoming routing daemon to work. See <file:Documentation/networking/decnet.txt> for more information.
