DE305 DIGITAL EtherWORKS ISA Adapter NDIS DRIVER FOR SUN PC-NFS Installation ======================================= Copyright (C) 1996 by Digital Equipment Corp. All rights reserved. The drivers named DE305 contained in the directory NDIS conform to the Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS) defined by Microsoft/3Com. NDIS Driver Installation on SUN PC-NFS -------------------------------------- 1. Edit the CONFIG.SYS file to include the following command line, and reboot the PC: Device=c:\dos\ansi.sys 2. Insert the PC-NFS Installation diskette into the PC's floppy drive. Type the following from DOS and press <Enter> to bring up the PC-NFS installation screen: INSTALL <Enter> 3. Follow screen prompts to configure your screen display. For example, press <M> to choose mono display, or press <C> to choose color display, or press <ESC> to cancel the installation. 4. When the "Install the Basic PC-NFS files" window appears onscreen, select "Install Full PC-NFS" from the choice list. 5. "Specify the target PC-NFS installation directory," by typing the appropriate path in the field provided. For example, C:\NFS. Then press <Enter> to continue. 6. Carefully read and respond to each prompt that appears onscreen, indicating the suitable selections for your system. 7. When you reach the prompt that reads, "Configure an Ethernet network connection," choose "Ethernet" from the choice list. Then press <Enter> to confirm your choice. 8. Choose the network adapter you will use. Select "NDIS" from the list shown onscreen. Then press <Enter> to confirm your choice. 9. Follow screen instructions to complete the process. You will be prompted to insert some PC-NFS distribution diskettes. And during the process, files from the diskettes will be copied into your hard disk drive. 10. When prompted to update your AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files, press "Y." 11. Your system will prompt you when the installation process is complete. It will display the following message, "PC-NFS installation is complete." 12. The system will create two subdirectories in the destination drive, namely, \LANMAN and \NFS. 13. Create the NETWORK.BAT, DRIVES,BAT and HOSTS files. Specify the PC name, IP address, server name and server IP address in these files. See the section on Sample Configuration Files for examples. 14. Copy the NETWORK.BAT, DRIVES.BAT and HOSTS files into the \NFS directory of your server. 15. Copy the DE305.DOS file from the \MSLANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\ETHERNET\DE305\ of your Driver Diskette to the newly created subdirectory (\LANMAN) on your destination drive. Note: The DE305.DOS file is also found in the \NDIS2\DOS directory of your Driver Diskette. 16. Edit the CONFIG.SYS file using a text editor. Add the following command line before the NFS_NDIS driver specification: DEVICE=C:\LANMAN\DE305.DOS 17. Edit the PROTOCOL.INI file in the \LANMAN directory, replacing the following: a. Replace the section name [your-mac-module] with [ETHNE] b. Replace the command line "drivername = YOURMAC$" with "drivername = DE305$" c. Specify the correct IRQ and IOBASE value (may be omitted) to match the adapter's hardware configuration. For example: IRQ = 3 IOBASE = 0x300 d. Replace the command line "bindings = YOUR-MAC-MODULE" with "bindings = ETHNE$" 18. Reboot your computer. Then start the application you need. For example: a. Execute NFSCONF.EXE to configure the system, such as mounting a virtual drive E: b. Execute TELNET.EXE to do terminal emulation Sample Configuration Files -------------------------- 1.
