This paper is about the current development of REDD, the Realtime Ethernet Device Drivers. First of all the previous state of the original REDD driver will be described, which was the base for our work. Then we will explain the most important changes we did during our development, like a common POSIX interface, multidevice support, /proc interface, and the error handling mechanism. The next step will be to introduce some examples that have been developed concurrently with the drivers. Our intention is to offer some easy to use tools to test the drivers functionality, like a ping request/reply or a simple benchmark tool. The last part will deal with future development of the driver itself, and of cause with the possibilities it offers. Examples are global time, redundant links, distributed shared memory.
