Accton Technology Corporation AccView/Station PC AND LAN ADAPTER MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE FOR EN165x ETHERNET ADAPTERS ======================================= Copyright (c) 1992, 1993 by Accton Technology Corporation. All rights reserved. AccView/Station Overview ------------------------ AccView/Station is a tool for PC and LAN adapter management. It is an Windows-based application that runs in Microsoft Windows 3.1 and later versions. It can show configuration of local PC hardware and network adapters. AccView/Station manages network adapters through network device drivers. Currently Packet Driver and Open Data Link (ODI) interface drivers are supported. Using AccView/Station you can view the adapter's configuration and statistic tables, and create the necessary reports. AccView/Station incorporates report text editors to facilitate report generation. AccView/Station consists of a single executable file called AVST.EXE. 1. Copy the AVST.EXE file into your hard disk. 2. Use the "New" command in the Windows program manager to add it into one of the program manager windows. 3. Before you can use the program, make sure that your adapter is properly installed. Parts of the AccView/Station Screen ----------------------------------- 1. The Control Panel The Control Panel is the control center of AccView/Station. A list box displays all network drivers detected by the program. Packet drivers are named with their interrupt vector and their driver name. For example: "Packet Driver at 60H: Accton EN165x Packet Driver" ODI drivers are named by their driver name and frame type. If you load more than one frame type for a ODI driver, they will appear several times in the list of drivers, differing only in the protocol frame type. Below the list box are three buttons named "PC Configuration," "Configuration," and "Statistics." They are used to invoke almost all other windows. Click the PC Configuration button to invoke the screen showing the adapter's configuration. Other buttons, namely, "Configuration" and "Statistics" require you to select an appropriate driver first. If no drivers are available, the two buttons have no effect. Depending on which driver is selected in the above list box, the "Configuration" and "Statistics" buttons invoke the LAN driver configuration and statistics window respectively. The Control Panel window can not be closed while AccView/Station is running. It can be minimized if necessary. 2. PC Configuration The PC Configuration Window shows the CPU type, memory size, I/O ports, DOS version and Windows version that you are using. It also shows disk drives currently online, including removable disks, floppy disk drives, fixed disks and network disks. The total size and remaining spaces of these devices are also shown. The Update button can be used to refresh the disk drive display. 3. Packet Driver Configuration It shows various information from the Packet Driver interface, including Names, Class, Type of the driver, node address, functionality, current receive mode, and the multicast address list. 4. Packet Driver Statistics It shows standard packet driver statistics table. Including transmitted and received frames, bytes and errors. 5. ODI Configuration It shows the MLID configuration table. Entries are renamed and organized from Novell documentation for better understanding. 6. ODI Statistics It shows the MLID statistics table from the interface. Multiple logical boards sharing the same physical interface will also have the same statistical display. 7. Report Generation AccView/Station includes a simple report generator, which allows users to open multiple reports simultaneously. Users can open, save, view, print, edit and manipulate a report just like a file from text editor. On the AccView/Station screen, there is a menu bar containing menus, such as File, Edit, View, Window and Help. Invoking any menu brings up a pull-down menu containing different commands for report manipulation. The commands are straight forward, functioning in a similar way as any Windows-based text editor. AccView/Station's report generator uses a standard Windows text control that cannot accept files longer than 32K. Menu and Tool Bar ----------------- The AccView/Station's menu bar commands include the following: File, Edit, View, Window and Help. This section briefly explains each item. The File Menu includes the following commands: New Select this command to create a new report Open Select this command to open an existing report Save Saves a new report using current file name Save As Saves a new report to a new file name Print Prints a report Print Setup Select this to change the print setup The Edit Menu includes the following commands: Undo Cancels the most recent command or action you completed Cut Removes a selected text from the document and stores it on the Clipboard temporarily Paste Places text from the Clipboard to the user-specified place on the document Delete Removes a selected text from the document Find Searches the document for a specified character string Find Next Continues the search for the next occurrence of the character string on the document The View Menu includes the following commands: Toolbar Enables/disables the Toolbar. The Toolbar is a short-cut method for invoking the commands that you need. For example, icons for creating a new report, opening a new file, saving a file, editing a report, cutting, copying, pasting selected information, printing a report, calling online help Status Bar Enables/disables the Status Bar The Window Menu includes the following commands: Cascade Arranges open windows so that the title box of each window is visible Tile Arranges open windows side-by-side so that all of them are visible Arrange Icons Arranges into rows all program icons for a selected group, of if a group icon is selected arranges all group icons into rows List of Reports The names of all open reports are listed at the bottom of the Window menu Reporting --------- All information in the configuration and statistics display windows can be appended to one of the report windows. Do this by selecting the Edit Append command, or simply clicking the "Append" icon from the Tool bar while the PC Configuration, Driver Configuration or Driver Statistics Windows are selected. A list of all available reports will be shown on the screen. Select the report you need by highlighting it with your mouse, then clicking the <OK> button. The report that you've selected is automatically appended for you into the appropriate location that you've specified.Download Driver Pack
