I. The driver PKTDRV.COM can be used for the following: 
   Fast Ethernet Controller Provider FastNIC 10/100 Fast Ethernet Adapters


PKTDRV		syntax:

PKTDRV		[-#] [-a] [-t] [-f] [-s] [-n] [-w] [-u] [-h] <PD_INT_NO>


Parameter	Explain
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
[-#]		The "-#" option will let the driver work on a specific 
		adapter	when multiple Fast Ethernet Controller Provider PCI 
		adapters are found in the computer system. For example, "-1"
		means the first adapter will be activated by the driver, 
		"-2" means the second adapter will be activated, ... etc.
		A maximum of 4 adapters are supported simulaneously.

[-a]		The "-a" option will let driver perform automatic media 
		detection during driver initialization. The detection 
		sequence is:

		TP 100Mbps Full Duplex ---> TP 10Mbps Full Duplex ---> 
		TP 100Mbps Half Duplex ---> TP 10Mbps Half Duplex

		If no physical media is attached to the adapter then TP 
		100Mbps	Full Duplex is the default media.

[-t]		The "-t" option sets the adapter line speed to 10Mbps. It is
		a dedicated option for the FastNIC Ethernet adapter.

[-f]		The "-f" option enables FULL_DUPLEX feature of the adapters.
		It has no effect except when Twisted Pair is used.

[-s]		The "-s" option sets the adapter line speed to 100Mbps. It 
		is a dedicated option for the FastNIC Ethernet adapter.

[-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.

[-u]		This option unloads the Packet Driver.

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

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

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



Example:

The following command line loads the 
Fast Ethernet Controller Provider FastNIC 10/100 Fast Ethernet PCI adapters 
Packet Driver at software interrupt 60h, transmission media is 
automatical-detected:

		PKTDRV -a 0x60  or PKTDRV 0x60

** Note **
   The default transmission media is automatic-detection.
   The prefix of 0x to the parameters.


II. After the Packet Driver is loaded, you can run the PC/TCP kernel 
   ETHDRV.EXE. The PC is then ready for PC/TCP communications.
   To run PC/TCP applications, You need to load PC/TCP Kernel("ETHDRV.EXE").

   a. Refer to PC/TCP manual, Command Reference section, Chapter 2.3.

   b. The following example loads the PC/TCP Kernel and allocates 8 packet
      buffers. Increasing the number of packet buffers (from the default of 
      5) prevents dropping of packets 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 192.72.24.202 , 192.72.24.202  is host address.
      With regard to host address, you must know its address.

III. How to Communicate with 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 onto your system. Please refer to the NCSA 
      documentation for detailed instructions.

   3. Load Packet Driver (PKTDRV 0x60):

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

		PKTDRV -h <Enter>

      c. The following example will load the packet driver using interrupt 
	 vector 60 (hex). The IO_BASE and IRQ will be read from adapter 
	 configuraion space:

		PKTDRV 0x60   <Enter>

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

      for example : 
		ftp 203.70.238.105, while 203.70.238.105 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.
