Hi Jeff

The information given in my answer below is available on NFD homepage.
• Ethernet face is mentioned in “NFD configuration file format”
• “nfd-status -f” appears in “manpages – nfd-status”
• “ether:” is declared in “NFD Management protocol – Face Management – FaceUri”
• “nfdc register /<prefix> <faceid>” appears in “manpages – nfdc”

Yours, Junxiao

Hi Junxiao,
Can you please provide a pointer to the documentation where one can learn such things?

Hi Ahmed
NFD 0.3 contain EthernetFace and is capable of multicast communication directly over Ethernet.
If you type “nfd-status -f”, you may see an “ether:” multi-access face for every NIC that is capable of Ethernet communication.
Register a route onto one of those faces with “nfdc register /<prefix> <faceid>” would allow you to send Interest onto and receive Data from an EthernetFace.
Yours, Junxiao

Hi all,
Can an NDN application send data directly over Ethernet ? If yes which version of NFD does support this feature ?
