critical impact:

ether_* routines - not supported; temporarily available (CrUn53)

ME Impacts NW Impacts

Problem description

The ether_* routines exist only on Tru64 UNIX, and not on HP-UX. These routines will be available on a temporary basis in the Tru64 UNIX Migration Environment for HP-UX.

The ether_* routines are useful for mapping 48-bit Ethernet numbers to their ASCII representations or their corresponding host names, and vice versa.

The Migration Environment contains Tru64 UNIX APIs, development tools, and commands and utilities to assist customers in migrating their applications from Tru64 UNIX to HP-UX.
