     urndis — USB Remote NDIS Ethernet device


     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel
     configuration file:

           device ehci
           device uhci
           device ohci
           device xhci
           device usb
           device miibus
           device uether
           device urndis

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in



     The urndis driver provides Ethernet access over Remote NDIS (RNDIS), allowing mobile devices
     such as phones and tablets to provide network access.  It is often referred to as USB
     tethering, and in most cases must be explicitly enabled on the device.

     urndis should work with any USB RNDIS devices, such as those commonly found on Android
     devices.  It does not support different media types or options.  For more information on
     configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).


     The urndis driver supports the "tethering" functionality of many Android devices.

     The urndis device driver first appeared in OpenBSD 4.7.  The first FreeBSD release to
     include it was FreeBSD 9.3.


     The urndis driver was written by Jonathan Armani <>, Michael Knudsen
     <>, and Fabien Romano <>.  It was ported to FreeBSD by Hans
     Petter Selasky <>.
