linux-llc is a collection of programs that form the base set of the Linux-LLC networking stack's userspace components for the Linux operating system.
Logical Link Control (LLC) is a sublayer of the IEEE 802.2 LAN Protocol Suite. LLC is the top sub-layer in the data link layer and is the common access method to the different medium access technologies such as Tokenring, Ethernet and FDDI. LLC sockets provides a convenient and easy to use method for accessing LLC1 and LLC2 functions from userspace.
An LLC2 socket inherits all the functionality of an LLC1 socket. The LLC1 socket uses the LLC datalink connectionless mode (Unacknowledged data transfer) protocol. Verses an LLC2 socket uses the LLC datalink connection oriented mode plus datalink connectionless mode.
