SYNOPSIS

.Cd device ipheth

DESCRIPTION

The ipheth driver provides support for network access through Apple iPhone and iPad devices, often referred to as USB tethering.

ipheth should work with any Apple iPhone or iPad device. In most cases this must be explicitly enabled on the device first.

For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8). The device does not support different media types or options.

  • Apple iPhone tethering (all models)

BUGS

Some devices may need to be manually configured to use an alternative configuration with the usbconfig(8) utility. A command similar to

    usbconfig -u 1 -a 2 set_config 3

may be required if the device is not recognised automatically by ipheth after it is connected.
