Network Interface Details

Hi Folks,

 

Pardon my limited understanding of networking interfaces upfront.

 

I am building an application to track the network connection changes / uptime and wifi drop and wanted to put a friendly name to the possible network interfaces that could appear:

 

For example ...

 

lo2
ipsec0
ipsec1
vpn0
vlan0
asix0
smsc0
en0
nap0
pan0
ppp0
bb0
ecm0
rndis0
lo0
pflog0

 

... are the connections available in the simulator.

 

Is there a reference to a more complete list of possible connections and explainations for the connection type (bluetooth, wifi, cell etc)? As I'm developing the app to track network connection status and uptime and not tracking of data transfer (which I believe isn't possible).

 

Can you point me to documentation?

 

Thanks

Highlighted

Hope this link might be of help? It's an intro into networking with Air

Re: Network Interface Details

Thanks that was good information but not quite what I was looking for but informative in any case.

 

I'm more interested in the values that can be received for the interface that the device responds with (for example on the Dev Alpha the wifi connection is 'bcm0'. I was hoping there may be documentation on the various connection types that can be activated on the device and expected behaviour.

 

Here's a trace from a Dev Alpha:

 

bptp0
lo2
ipsec0
ipsec1
vpn0
vlan0
asix0
smsc0
bcm0
msm0
msm1
msm2
msm3
msm4
nap0
pan0
ppp0
bb0
ecm0
rndis0
lo0
bcm1
pflog0
