-Text File for the COPS LocalTalk Linux driver (cops.c).
- By Jay Schulist <>
-This driver has two modes and they are: Dayna mode and Tangent mode.
-Each mode corresponds with the type of card. It has been found
-that there are 2 main types of cards and all other cards are
-the same and just have different names or only have minor differences
-such as more IO ports. As this driver is tested it will
-become more clear exactly what cards are supported.
-Right now these cards are known to work with the COPS driver. The
-LT-200 cards work in a somewhat more limited capacity than the
-DL200 cards, which work very well and are in use by many people.
-TANGENT driver mode:
- Tangent ATB-II, Novell NL-1000, Daystar Digital LT-200
-DAYNA driver mode:
- Dayna DL2000/DaynaTalk PC (Half Length), COPS LT-95,
- Farallon PhoneNET PC III, Farallon PhoneNET PC II
-Other cards possibly supported mode unknown though:
- Dayna DL2000 (Full length)
-The COPS driver defaults to using Dayna mode. To change the driver's
-mode if you built a driver with dual support use board_type=1 or
-board_type=2 for Dayna or Tangent with insmod.
-** Operation/loading of the driver.
-Use modprobe like this: /sbin/modprobe cops.o (IO #) (IRQ #)
-If you do not specify any options the driver will try and use the IO = 0x240,
-IRQ = 5. As of right now I would only use IRQ 5 for the card, if autoprobing.
-To load multiple COPS driver Localtalk cards you can do one of the following.
-insmod cops io=0x240 irq=5
-insmod -o cops2 cops io=0x260 irq=3
-Or in lilo.conf put something like this:
- append="ether=5,0x240,lt0 ether=3,0x260,lt1"
-Then bring up the interface with ifconfig. It will look something like this:
-lt0 Link encap:UNSPEC HWaddr 00-00-00-00-00-00-00-F7-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00
- inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
- RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
- TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 coll:0
-** Netatalk Configuration
-You will need to configure atalkd with something like the following to make
-it work with the cops.c driver.
-* For single LTalk card use.

-lt0 -seed -phase 1 -net 1000 -addr 1000.50 -zone "1033"
-* For multiple cards, Ethernet and LocalTalk.

-lt0 -seed -phase 1 -net 1000 -addr 1000.50 -zone "1033"
-* For multiple LocalTalk cards, and an Ethernet card.
-* Order seems to matter here, Ethernet last.
