Accton Technology Corporation AccView/Station PC and LAN Adapter Management Software For EN2212 Ethernet PCMCIA Adapters Copyright (C) 1993, 1994, 1995 by Accton Technology Corporation. All rights reserved. AccView/Station Installation and User Guide I. Overview AccView/Station is a tool for PC and LAN adapter management. It is a Windows 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 interface drivers are supported. It can show the configuration and statistic tables in these adapter and create reports when necessary. It incorporates report text editors so that you can create reports from the device information easily. AccView/Station consists of a single execuatable file AVST.EXE. Copy this file to your disk and use the "New" command in the Windows program manager to add it as one of the program manager windows. To manage LAN adapters, you must load the LAN drivers first. Currently AccView/Station supports Packet Driver and ODI drivers. II. Windows of AccView/Station There are several kinds of Windows in an AccView station. 1. The Control Panel The Control Panel is the control center of AccView/Station. It lists network drivers AccView/Station found in the Network Drivers list box. Packet drivers are named with their interrupt vector and their driver name. For example: "Packet Driver at 60H: Accton EN2212 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 multiple times in the list of drivers, with different protocol frame types. Below the list box are three buttons named "PC Configuration", "Configuration" and "Statistics". They are used to invoke almost all other windows. Pushing "PC Configuration" invokes the PC Configuration window. Other buttons require a selection of drivers. If no drivers are available, the two buttons have no effect. Depending on what driver is selected in the list box, the "Configuration" and "Statistic" buttons invokes LAN driver configuration and statistics windows respectively. The Control window can not be closed when AccView/Station is active. It can be minimized if necessary. 2. PC Configuration The PC Configuration windows shows the CPU type, memory size, I/O ports, DOS version and Windows version. It also shows disk drives currently online, including removable disks (including floppy disk drives), fixed disks, and network disks. 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 acquired from the Packet Driver interface. The information includes Names, Class, Type of the driver, node address, functionality, current receive mode, and the multicast address list. 4. Packet Driver Statistics It shows the standard packet driver statistic table. Reported items include number of transmitted and received frames, bytes and errors. 5. ODI Configuration It shows the MLID configuration table. Consult the Novell documentation for a better understanding of the contents. 6. ODI Statistcs It shows the MLID statistic table from the interface. If multiple logical boards exist that share the same physical interface, all statistics share the same numbers. 7. Report Window Report window is the only kind of window that can be opened as many as desired. A report window is a basic text editor. Most of the commands on the main menu applies only to report windows, including File New, Open, Save, Save As, and Print; Edit Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete, Find, Find Next, Replace, and Select All. The report window is a standard Windows text control box, therefore it cannot handle large files. The maximum size accepted is about 32K. Report Windows are the target of the "Report" command that can be issued by other windows. III. Menu and Tool bar Most File and Edit commands are already explained. The Edit Report command will be explained in the next section. The View Toolbar is used to disable and enable the Tool bar. The View Status bar does the same on the Status bar. The Window menu is used to arrange windows and select the desired window directly. The Tool Bar provids a shortcut for entering commands. There are a total of 9 Tool Buttons, which are grouped in three groups. They provide a faster way to execute the these commands: File New, File Open, File Save Edit Report, Edit Cut, Edit Copy, Edit Paste File Print, Help About. IV. Reporting All information in configuration and statistic display windows can be appended to one of the report windows. Select Edit Append command, or press the graphic "append" button on the Tool bar when PC Configuration, Driver Configuration or Driver Statistic window are selected. A list of report windows currenly active will be presented for selection. If no report window is presented, one will be opened automatically. You can press OK to use the currenly selected report window, or New to create a new window, or cancel to abandon the reporting. The information will be appended to the selected report window.Download Driver Pack
