1. To use the Accton MPX driver

   Accton MPX driver is a high performance NetWare 3.x ODI driver.
   It includes both workstation and server drivers:

         MPXPCM.COM : NetWare DOS/ODI workstation driver
         (A:\NETWARE\ODI\DOSODI\MPXPCM.COM)

         MPXPCM.LAN : NetWare DOS/ODI server driver
         (A:\NETWARE\ODI\SERVER\MPXPCM.LAN)

   To run MPXPCM.LAN as a server driver, you must modify STARTUP.NCF
   as follows:

         SET MAXIMUM PHYSICAL RECEIVE PACKET SIZE = 4202

   and use the LOAD & BIND command to start the server driver.

   Workstation driver MPXPCM.COM does not have any special requirement.
   You can run MPXPCM.COM in place of PCMMLID.COM.

   For example:
                LSL
                MPXPCM
                IPXODI
                NETX
                  .
                  .

   To achieve maximum performance, you must change server and
   workstation drivers to MPXPCM.LAN and MPXPCM.COM simultaneously.
   Otherwise, you get the same performance as that of NE2000-compatible 
   drivers.

   Accton MPX driver supports NE2000 mode, and can process
   Ethernet_II, Ethernet 802.2, and Ethernet 802.3 frame types.

Packet Driver


                      Accton Technology Corporation
                        Packet Driver Installation
                     For EN2212 PCMCIA Ethernet Adapters

To load the packet driver, type PCMPD 0X60.

PCMPD syntax:

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

where:


[-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 .

[MEM_BASE]     This specifies the shared RAM memory address.


Example:

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

PCMPD 0x60 5 0x300 or PCMPD 0x60

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 then ready for PC/TCP communications.

To run PC/TCP applications, You need to load the PC/TCP Kernel
("ETHDRV.EXE").


    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 192.72.24.202.  192.72.24.202  is the host address.

      (617) 246-0900

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

3. Load Packet Driver (pcmpd 0x60):

   a. Refer to the "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 be read from the software
      configured adapter:

      pcmpd 0x60   <Enter>

4. At this point you are ready to run NCSA applications
   (e.g., 'ftp', 'telnet', etc.)
   for example : ftp 192.72.24.202.  192.72.24.202  is host address.

                 Accton EN2212 Ethernet PCMCIA Adapter
           NDIS Driver for Wollongong Pathway Access Installation
          ========================================================

The driver ETHPCM.DOS contained in directory \NDIS is used with
Accton Ethernet PCMCIA adapters in the Wollongong Pathway Access
environment.

This driver conforms to the Network Driver Interface Specification
(NDIS) 2.0 defined by Microsoft/3Com.



1. INSTALLATION PROCEDURE

  a. NDIS driver Installation Procedure:

     1. Insert your copy of Pathway Drivers diskette into drive A. Enter:

       C:\>A:

     2. To install the software, enter:

       A:\> pwinstal C:

       where C: is the disk drive (you could also use D:, E:, and so on)
       that you intend to use for the installation of your Pathway software
       on a hard drive system.  The PWINSTAL program automatically installs
       the driver software in a directory named \PATHWAY on the drive you
       specified.

       The installation is complete when you receive the following
       message: "The Pathway Drivers have been copied successfully.  Refer to
       documentation to complete driver installation."

     3. Insert the driver diskette in drive A and copy the NDIS driver to the
       subdirectory where you installed the Pathway software:

       A:\> Copy A:\NDIS\ETHPCM.DOS C:\PATHWAY

     4. Edit the C:\CONFIG.SYS file to contain the following entries :

       DEVICE=C:\PATHWAY\ACCOPEN.EXE /int=5 /port=300
       DEVICE=C:\PATHWAY\PWTCP.SYS
       DEVICE=C:\PATHWAY\PROTMAN.EXE/I:C:\PATHWAY
       DEVICE=C:\PATHWAY\ETHPCM.DOS

       At the same time copy accopen.exe from the driver diskette to 
       the \PATHWAY directory.

     5. Use a text editor to create a PROTOCOL.INI file in C:\PATHWAY
        with the following section:

       [EN2212]
       DriverName = ETHPCM$

     6. The startup batch file - autoexec.bat should have the following entries
       in the order shown :

       path=c:\pathway
       ndis [-d:#]
       pwbind

       where the -d option is used when accessing a specific module number
       within protocol.ini.  In your protocol.ini file, a line enclosed by
       square brackets designates the beginning of a new module.  Each module
       is referred to by a hexadecimal number.  The first module is module
       number one. The second module is module two, and so on.

  b. Pathway Kernel Installation Procedure

     1. Insert the Pathway Kernel diskette in drive A. Enter:

       C:\>A:

     2. To install the software, enter:

       A:\> pwinstal C:

       where C: is the hard drive name (you could also use D:, E:, and so on)
       that you intend to use for the installation of your Pathway software.
       The PWINSTAL program automatically installs
       the driver software in a directory named \PATHWAY on the drive you
       specified.

       Diskette copying is complete when you see the following message: 
       "Pathway Kernel files have been copied successfully.  Reboot and refer
       to the documentation to complete kernel installation."

     3. Remove the diskette from drive A: and reboot your PC by pressing <Ctrl>,
       <Alt>, and <Del> at the same time.

     4. Change current directory to \PATHWAY.

     5. Run the CUSTOM program to set or change the following parameters:

       . The Internet address
       . The subnet bits (if your network has subnetworks)
       . The gateway address (if you are communicating with hosts outside your
         local network)

     6. Remove the diskette from drive A: and reboot your PC by pressing <Ctrl>,
       <Alt>, and <Del> at the same time.

     7. Enter the following command to load the Kernel:

       C:\PATHWAY> PWTCP

     8. Test your PC by using the PING program:

       C:\PATHWAY> PING hostname

       where hostname is the official name, alias, or Internet address of a
       host on your network that you expect to be able to communicate with.

This README file is an explanation of the files contained in the
\NETWARE subdirectory of this diskette.  For more information, please  
refer to the "NOVELL NetWare ODI Shell for DOS" manual.


LSL.COM:

       This file implements the Link Support Layer  for  DOS/ODI
       workstations  and is  the program that is generally loaded first
       after booting.  The Link Support Layer file enables the
       workstation to communicate over several protocols.

IPXODI.COM:

       This is Novell's protocol stack for DOS/ODI workstations.
       It performs the same functions what IPX.COM does for DOS
       workstations.  It is loaded after the LAN driver.  Other protocols 
       can be loaded in  place  of it or along with it.  This is one of the 
       key features of the ODI environment.

NETx.COM:
       NetWare Network program.

       If you use                 You Need
       ------------------------------------------
       Conventional memory        NETx.COM

       Expanded memory            EMSNETx.EXE
       (LIM 4.0 EMS Compatible)

       Extended memory            XMSNETx.EXE
       (XMS 2.0 compatible)


NETBIOS.EXE
       Netbios emulation program (INT 5CH interface) allows you to
       run  Netbios  application  programs  based  on  the NETBIOS.EXE
       interface.  The running sequence is:

       1. IPX shell driver
                    ACCOPEN.EXE /INT=5 /PORT=300  --> PCMCIA Enabler
                    IPX.COM
                    NETBIOS.EXE  --> netbios emulation interface
                    ...

       2. DOS/ODI driver
                    LSL.COM
                    ACCOPEN.EXE /INT=5 /PORT=300  --> PCMCIA Enabler
                    PCMMLID.COM   --> Accton DOS/ODI driver
                    IPXODI.COM
                    NETBIOS.EXE
                    ...



If the DOS/ODI driver PCMMLID.COM executed successfully, it would display
the adapter mode and configuration information.  Otherwise you 
would see an error message and the cause of the failure.  Note the
PCMCIA Adapter must be enabled by ACCOPEN.EXE before issuing the
PCMMLID.COM command.

Here is the list of error messages the driver may display and the correction
method:

  *    "The board cannot be found."

       The adapter does not exist or the driver does not recognize the adapter.

       Correction: Insert an Accton PCMCIA adapter into the slot.  Enable
       the Adapter by using the ACCOPEN.EXE enabler.

  *    "Board RAM failed the memory test."

       The RAM buffer on the adapter failed.

       Correction: Insert a new adapter and run the driver again.

  *    "The board did not respond to the initialization command."

       The driver recognized the adapter but the adapter failed to respond.

       Correction: Insert a new adapter and run the driver again.

  *    "There is no cable connecting to the adapter."

       There is no cable connecting to the adapter or the transceiver within
       the adapter failed.

       Correction: Connect the cable to the adapter and run the driver again.

       Normally,  you do not need a NET.CFG file because the  established
       defaults are adequate for your network.  One exception is when your 
       workstation  has more than one network adapters.  In this case,
       for  each adapter, there  must  exist a MLID section
       in the NET.CFG file.

       Note: ODI driver always parses your NET.CFG file first. The 
             configuration in NET.CFG takes precedence over the 
             parameter settings stored in the internal memory of the adapter. 

       Below is a sample NET.CFG file:

              LINK DRIVER PCMMLID
                  INT   5
                  PORT  300
                     :
                     :

       You can consult "NetWare 386 Installation, Appendix E" for  more 
       information about NET.CFG.

       Novell has already changed the Ethernet default frame type to 802.2
       starting with the release of NetWare v4.0. The move has to be made to
       enable it to better support future protocol  and networking features.
       Some of these features are IPX with checksum,  security enhancements,
       and  protocol independence.  Following this change,  the default frame
       type of  DOS/ODI  driver is Ethernet 802.2 when there  is no protocol
       binding in NET.CFG file.  In this case,  if  your server  is not
       NetWare v4.0, please make sure the Ethernet 802.2 frame type has been
       bound before logging in.
