Keywords for the AC100x Netware Server ODI driver v1.x .

TxDescriptors=
This is to initialize Descriptor resources on the adapter for transmits.
Min = 100
Max = 512
Default = 120

RxBuffers=
This is to pre-allocate receive ECBs & Receive adapter resources. This setting
may be affected by the Netware server maximum/minimum packet receive buffer settings.
Min = 32
Max = 512
Default = 200

Speed=
This keyword is to force the line speed of the adapter.
When this keyword is used, the switch to which the adapter cable is connected 
to must be forced. If not, the adapter and switch may run at different duplex 
modes. It is important to have the switch and adapter set properly. 
The best way to ensure good connectivity is to not set the speed keyword and
allow for automatic link setup (auto-negotiation).
Choices are :
AUTO, 10FD,10HD, 100FD, 100HD, 
Default is Auto. Please note that 1000 FD is only auto-detected at this time.


Link=
This keyword is only used to allow the adapter to negotiate a specific or 
forced line speed with a switch that is not forced, but instead setup for 
auto-negotiation. It is best to allow for auto-negotiation of the card and 
switch by not setting this keyword or the speed keyword. Only use this keyword
if the speed keyword is set to something other than AUTO.
Choices are: AUTO, FORCE
Default is FORCE because the speed keyword is usually used when a switch and the
adapter speeds are both forced to a specific value.


RxTicks=
This is to enable the use of a receive "tick" interrupt within a 
specific time period.
Min = 0, disabled
Max = 5000000, 5 seconds
Units are in micro seconds
Default is 300

TxTicks=
This is to enable the use of a transmit "tick" threshold interupt within a 
specific time period.
Min = 0, disabled
Max = 5000000, 5 seconds
Units are in micro seconds
Default is 200


TxPacketsPer=
This is to enable the use of allowing an interrupt to occur after a specific 
amount of packets are transmitted.
Min = 0, disabled
Max = 100
Default is 20

RxPacketsPer=
This is to enable the use of allowing an interrupt to occur after a specific 
amount of packets are received.
Min = 0, disabled
Max = 100
Default is 75


CheckSum=
This is to enable or disable the transmit & receive checksum off loading feature.
The checksum off loading support is only for TCP/IP packets, for that reason it is 
defaulted to OFF.
Choices are:
OFF, ON, TX, RX
Default is ON

TxFlow=
This keyword allows enabling/disabling of TxFlow control.
Choices are:
ON, OFF
Default is ON.

RxFlow=
This keyword allows enabling/disabling of RxFlow control.
Choices are:
ON, OFF
Default value is OFF.

NODE=
This is a Novell Netware keyword.
This keyword will allow an input ethernet node address to replace the adapter 
factory programmed ethernet node address until a subsequent reboot.
Choices are:
NODE=nnnnnnnnnnnn

FRAME=
This is a Novell Netware keyword.
String specifying the frame type.
Choices are:
ETHERNET_II
ETHERNET_802.3
ETHERNET_802.2
ETHERNET_SNAP
Default is usally ETHERNET_802.2

SLOT=
This is a Novell Netware keyword.
Sysstem-wide unique Hardware Instance Number (HIN) that may be the physical
slot number on a slot based bus such as PCI.
SLOT=n

Jumbo=
Keyword to enable Jumbo frame support. When enabled, jumbo packets of up to 
9200 bytes are supported. Only ethernet_II frame type supports jumbo packets,
and it must be loaded first. Jumbo packets are allowed only at 1000 Mbs link
speed. Jumbo frames are currently supported only on Netware 6.
Choices are:
Jumbo=on, Jumbo=Off
Default is Jumbo=OFF.

P3=
This keyword is used when running perform3.exe tests. It is favors IPX traffic
over TCP/IP traffic and optimizes the driver performance for perform3.exe.
It is not necessary to use this keyword, however, it may increase performance
in the perform3.exe environment.
Set P3=1 if running back to back, set P3=2 if using many clients.
Default is p3=0.


Please Note:
If you are experiencing problems when disconnecting the cable on the AC1000
please update the firmware.
