CONFIG_IPDDP: Appletalk-IP driver support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_IPDDP:

Help text

This allows IP networking for users who only have AppleTalk networking available. This feature is experimental. With this driver, you can encapsulate IP inside AppleTalk (e.g. if your Linux box is stuck on an AppleTalk only network) or decapsulate (e.g. if you want your Linux box to act as an Internet gateway for a zoo of AppleTalk connected Macs). Please see the file Documentation/networking/ipddp.rst for more information.

If you say Y here, the AppleTalk-IP support will be compiled into the kernel. In this case, you can either use encapsulation or decapsulation, but not both. With the following two questions, you decide which one you want.

To compile the AppleTalk-IP support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called ipddp. In this case, you will be able to use both encapsulation and decapsulation simultaneously, by loading two copies of the module and specifying different values for the module option ipddp_mode.
