                        Packet Driver Installation
                      For EN2212 Ethernet PCMCIA Adapters

The driver PCMPD.COM is used with Accton Ethernet PCMCIA adapters.

To load the packet driver, type:

    PCMPD 0X60.

PCMPD syntax:

PCMPD [-d] [-n] [-w] [-h] <PD_INT_NO> [IRQ] [IO_BASE]


[-d]           The "-d" option does not start LAN card until this driver is
               called by the higher layer programs first.

[-n]           Your  NOVELL server uses NOVELL ISO-like packets. Your NOVELL
               workstation uses  NOVELL 8137 packets. You can use this option
               to convert NOVELL 8137 packets into  NOVELL ISO-like packets.

[-w]           Steve Wallace added a hack to let the packet drivers run under
               Windows. This is not to be construed with the proper solution,
               which is to write a TCP/IP package for Windows.

               This hack is enabled only when you use the '-w' switch.

[-h]           This option displays the on-line help.

<PD_INT_NO>    This specifies the software interrupt (IRQ) where  you'll
               load the packet driver. It must be in the range 0x60 to 0x80.

               The PC/TCP kernel, by default, is loaded at interrupt 0x61 (so
               don't load the packet driver there!)

[IRQ]          This specifies the hardware interrupt (IRQ)  where your card
               will be indicated whether the ring buffer is empty or not.

[IO_BASE]      This specifies the I/O address .


The following command line loads the Accton  
Packet Driver at software interrupt 60h, I/O address 300, and hardware
interrupt 5 (NE2000 MODE).

PCMPD 0x60 5 0x300 

Note: The default I/O address is 300.
Note: The default hardware interrupt is 5.
Note: The placement of 0x prior to the parameters.

After the Packet Driver is loaded, you can run the PC/TCP kernel ETHDRV.EXE.
The PC is ready for PC/TCP communications.

To run PC/TCP applications, you need to load PC/TCP Kernel

    a. Refer to the PC/TCP manual, Command Reference
       section, Chapter 2.3.
    b. The following example will load the Kernel and
       allocate 8 packet buffers.  Increasing the
       number of packet buffers (from the default of 5) prevents
       packet dropping due to buffer shortage.

        ETHDRV -p 8 <Enter>

    c. At this point, you are ready to run PC/TCP applications
       (e.g., 'ftp', 'telnet').
       Example: ftp
       (  is the host address)

How to Communicate using NCSA Telnet:

1. Make sure you have the correct version of NCSA Telnet
   for the PC.  You need version 2.3 or later to support
   the packet driver interface.

2. Install the NCSA software on your system.  Please
   refer to the NCSA documentation for detailed instructions.

3. Load Packet Driver (pcmpd 0x60):

   a. Refer to "Packet Driver Syntax" section above.
   b. To view the hint screen, type

      pcmpd -h <Enter>

   c. The following example will load the packet driver
      using interrupt vector 60 (hex).  The IO_BASE
      and IRQ will assume the default values.

      pcmpd 0x60   <Enter>

4. At this point you are ready to run NCSA applications
   (e.g., 'ftp', 'telnet', etc.)

   For example: ftp
   (  is the host address)

How To Update Drivers Manually

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.

  • Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.

  • Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.

Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
