Yes, it is. It's in the com class spec (which is the union of umpteen wildly
things). It looks reasonably simple to write a driver for. BUT, when I last
at Ethernet adapters there were none that followed the standard. :-(
Good luck in getting the info from ATEN; many of these companies seem
paranoid about telling you anything.
If you do get the specs I'll be happy to help in the driver implementation.
