VIA VT6105 Rhine III Fast Ethernet Adapter Installation for NetWare Server 4.x 5.x 6.x Introduction: ============= The Fast Ethernet 10M/100M ODI Driver for NetWare 4.x, 5.x & 6.x Servers confirms to the Novell Open Data-Link Interface (ODI) specification. This document shows you how to setup the driver and how to use the enhanced functions by setting the custom keywords. Installation: ============= Before starting with the installation process, make sure that the adapter is properly installed and configured. You can use the diagnostic program in DOS mode to make sure your connection with the network is correct. Using Server Install utility: ----------------------------- 1) On the server console, execute the NWconfig program: NWConfig <Enter> 2) Choose "Driver Option/Configure network drivers/Select a driver". 3) Press the <Ins> key to install the driver which is not on the list. 4) Press <F3> to specify a different path (A:\NWSERVER\SRVRODI.456) and press <Enter>. 5) The FETNWSRV.LAN should appear on the selection list. Press <Enter> to choose it. 6) You can "Select/Modify driver parameters and protocols", and then "Save parameters and load driver". 7) You can add the LOAD and BIND command lines to the AUTOEXEC.NCF file so that the LAN driver will be loaded automatically while the server is starting up. Loading Driver Manually: ------------------------ 1) On the server console, load the driver directly, for example: LOAD A:\NWSERVER\SRVRODI.456\FETNWSRV FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 2) Bind with IPX: BIND IPX FETNWSRV 3) You can login the server from a workstation, and then copy FETNWSRV.LAN to the directory SYS:\SYSTEM on server. Add the LOAD and BIND command lines to AUTOEXEC.NCF file so that the lan driver will be loaded automatically while the server starting up next time. NOTE: ----- 1) Multiple Lan Adapters in a system: If you want to install mutiple lan adapters in a server, you have to use the keyword, SLOT, to let driver locate the right adapter. For example: LOAD FETNWSRV SLOT=1 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=Lan_1 BIND IPX TO Lan_1 NET=2001 LOAD FETNWSRV SLOT=2 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=Lan_2 BIND IPX TO Lan_2 NET=2002 2) The original keywords "FULLDUPLE", "HALFDUPLE", "SPEED" and "AUTO" are still supported. Configuration Parameters: ========================= Custom Keywords: ---------------- FULLDUPLEX ------ This keyword is used to force full duplex mode. (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword) HALFDUPLEX ------ This keyword is used to force half duplex mode. (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword) SPEED ----------- This keyword is used to force Line Speed at 10Mbps or 100 Mbps. (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword) AUTO ------------ This keyword is used to force the chip at auto-negotiation mode. (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword) CONNECTIONTYPE -- This keyword is used to specify media type. CONNECTIONTYPE=AutoSense CONNECTIONTYPE=10BASET CONNECTIONTYPE=10BASETFD CONNECTIONTYPE=100BASETX CONNECTIONTYPE=100BASETXFD FLOW_CONTROL ---- This keyword is used to specify flow control ability. FLOW_CONTROL=DISABLE FLOW_CONTROL=ENABLE FLOW_CONTROL=HARDWARE_DEFAULT (default)Download Driver Pack
After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.
Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).
If the expanded file has an .exe extension, double click it and follow the installation instructions.
