Open Data Link Interface

Open Data Link Interface

The Open Datalink Interface (ODI) specification was defined to simplify driver development and to provide support for multiple protocol drivers on a single network adapter.
ODI allows Novell Netware drivers to be written without concern for the protocol driver that will be used to communicate with them.
Parts of ODI
1) Protocol Driver
The ODI version of the IPX/SPX, Protocol IPXODI.COM is used to communicate between the LSL and the applications.
2) Link Support Layer (LSL.COM)
The Link Support Layer provides a foundation for the MAC driver to communicate with multiple protocol drivers.
LSL.COM performs functions similar to the protocol manager in NDIS.
3) Multiple Link Interface Driver (MLID)
The (MLID) is the component that communicates with the adapter and the LSL.
This is the hardware dependent code created by the adapter card manufacturer. This code usually carries the name of the supported adapter.
