Sample PROTOCOL.INI Files and Parameters


;  Default section of protocol.ini file	for the	Digital	Adapter
    drivername = DE305$
    irq	= 3
    iobase = 0x300
; End of this sample file

There are several parameters included in the NDIS2_NIF
section	of the PROTOCOL.INI file. However, the only parameter
that you should	specify	is the "drivername."

If you change other parameter settings,	such as	the IOBASE
or IRQ,	make sure that it matches the hardware setting.
Otherwise, the adapter may fail.

If you don't specify these settings, Digital's NDIS driver
will automatically detect them.

irq	    Specifies the interrupt channel used by the	adapter.
	    Acceptable values for this parameter are 2/9, 3, 4,	5,
	    10,	11, 12 ,and 15.	However, some of the mentioned Digital
	    adapters do	not support all	the acceptable values.

iobase	    Specifies the iobase address used by the adapter.
	    This parameter is given in hexadecimal values.
	    Acceptable value for this parameter	are 0x200, 0x220,
