CONFIG_ISDN: ISDN support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_ISDN has multiple definitions:

ISDN support found in drivers/isdn/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_ISDN:

Help text

ISDN ("Integrated Services Digital Network", called RNIS in France) is a fully digital telephone service that can be used for voice and data connections. If your computer is equipped with an ISDN adapter you can use it to connect to your Internet service provider (with SLIP or PPP) faster than via a conventional telephone modem (though still much slower than with DSL) or to make and accept voice calls (eg. turning your PC into a software answering machine or PABX).

Select this option if you want your kernel to support ISDN.

ISDN ("Integrated Services Digital Networks", called RNIS in France) is a special type of fully digital telephone service; it's mostly used to connect to your Internet service provider (with SLIP or PPP). The main advantage is that the speed is higher than ordinary modem/telephone connections, and that you can have voice conversations while downloading stuff. It only works if your computer is equipped with an ISDN card and both you and your service provider purchased an ISDN line from the phone company. For details, read http://www.alumni.caltech.edu/~dank/isdn/ on the WWW.

Select this option if you want your kernel to support ISDN.

Old ISDN4Linux (obsolete) found in drivers/isdn/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_ISDN:

Help text

This driver allows you to use an ISDN-card for networking connections and as dialin/out device. The isdn-tty's have a built in AT-compatible modem emulator. Network devices support autodial, channel-bundling, callback and caller-authentication without having a daemon running. A reduced T.70 protocol is supported with tty's suitable for German BTX. On D-Channel, the protocols EDSS1 (Euro-ISDN) and 1TR6 (German style) are supported. See Documentation/isdn/README for more information.

ISDN support in the linux kernel is moving towards a new API, called CAPI (Common ISDN Application Programming Interface). Therefore the old ISDN4Linux layer is becoming obsolete. It is still usable, though, if you select this option.
