Networking with the Printer Port
My choice to discuss PLIP is motivated by the easy availability of such a network connection, and the do-it-yourself approach that might convince someone to build their own infrared Ethernet link. If you really are going to peek in the sources to learn how a network interface works, I'd suggest starting with loopback.c, which implements the o interface, and skeleton.c, which is quite detailed about the problems you'll encounter when building a network driver.
If you are more keen to use PLIP than to write device drivers, you can refer to the PLIP-HOWTO in any LDP mirror, and to /usr/doc/HOWTO in most Linux installations.
