    HDLC to Ethernet Bridging


    Have upgraded HDLC version for 2.4.20 kernel from 1.02 to 1.14.
    And recompiled the kernel and HDLC driver.
    Also it requires sethdlc utility for configuring HDLC and driver parameters which was found on the internet where the patch for HDLC was found.
    Having done that with kernel and driver reloded, when you try to configure HDLC interface for HDLC and physical parameters as follows:

    #sethdlc hdlc0 hdlc nrzi no-parity

    error is thrown

    hdlc0: Unable to set HDLC protocol information: Operation not supported.

    Currently the driver doesnt support configuration of physical parameter.

    But can you configure the HDLC protocol parameters for the interface having modified the HDLC version in the kernel 2.4.20.
    Basically the HDLC interface has to be configured and bridged with existing Ethernet interface using Brctl utility.
    Any support will be highly appriciated.
    Thanks in advance.
