General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_DLCI has multiple definitions:

Frame Relay DLCI support found in drivers/net/wan/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_DLCI:

Help text

Support for the Frame Relay protocol.

Frame Relay is a fast low-cost way to connect to a remote Internet access provider or to form a private wide area network. The one physical line from your box to the local "switch" (i.e. the entry point to the Frame Relay network, usually at the phone company) can carry several logical point-to-point connections to other computers connected to the Frame Relay network. For a general explanation of the protocol, check out http://www.mplsforum.org/.

To use frame relay, you need supporting hardware (called FRAD) and certain programs from the net-tools package as explained in Documentation/networking/framerelay.txt.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called dlci.
