Server Driver for NetWare 3.12 Introduction: ------------- This document describes the procedure to install the NetWare v3.12 server driver for REALTEK RTL8139 Fast Ethernet adapter. Location of Driver: \NWSERVER\312\RTSSRV.LAN Installation Procedure: ----------------------- Before you start with the installation process, make sure that the Novell NetWare v3.12 server is properly installed. Similarly, your adapter should also be properly installed in your server. 1. These files can be obtained from Realtek driver disk subdirectory A:\NWSERVER\312 NBI31X.NLM MSM31X.NLM ETHERTSM.NLM RTSSRV.LAN 2. If you can log into the server as a supervisor , copy RTSSRV.LAN relative files from the Realtek Driver Diskette subdirectory A:\NWSERVER\312 into the NetWare 386 subdirectory SYSTEM of your server. (If some files exists, rename the existing files in the SYSTEM subdirectory). 3. When the NetWare server prompt appears (indicated by a colon),load your server driver. Simply type: : LOAD NBI31X <Entet> : LOAD RTSSRV <Enter> or, you can directly load file from Realtek RTL8139 driver disk : : LOAD A:\NWSERVER\312\NBI31X <Enter> : LOAD A:\NWSERVER\312\MSM31X <Enter> : LOAD A:\NWSERVER\312\ETHERTSM <Enter> : LOAD A:\NWSERVER\312\RTSSRV <Enter> 4. Bind IPX to the adapter driver. At the NetWare server prompt ,type: :BIND IPX TO RTSSRV <Enter> 5. After pressing <Enter> the computer prompts you for the Network Number. For details on how to assign this number,please consult your NetWare Server Installation Manual. 6. Add the load and bind statements you require to the server's AUTOEXEC.NCF file so that the LAN driver will load automatically each time the server starts up. NOTES: ------ 1. Installing Multiple LAN Adapters: The keyword "SLOT" is provided for multiple LAN adapters in a single server by the driver RTSSRV.LAN. So, add "SLOT" in LOAD commands. For example: LOAD RTSSRV FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_A SLOT=1 BIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=11 LOAD RTSSRV FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_B SLOT=2 BIND IPX TO LAN_B NET=22 2. The keyword "MEDIUMTYPE" is provided for specifying adapter's speed (10M/100M) and duplex mode(half/full), add MEDIUMTYPE in LOAD commands. MEDIUMTYPE=AUTO : AUTO NEGOTIATION MEDIUMTYPE=10HALF : 10M SPPED AND HALFDUPLEX MODE MEDIUMTYPE=10FULL : 10M SPPED AND FULLDUPLEX MODE MEDIUMTYPE=100HALF : 100M SPPED AND HALFDUPLEX MODE MEDIUMTYPE=100FULL : 100M SPPED AND FULLDUPLEX MODE For example: LOAD RTSSRV FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_A SLOT=1 MEDIUMTYPE=100FULLBIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=11 3. Installing One LAN adapter with Multiple Frame Types: When binding multiple frame types to one adapter, enter a LOAD and BIND statement for each frame type. Each LOAD statement will use a different network number is required on the bind statement. You need to supply a name on each load line in order to avoid being prompted for which board to bind IPX to. If you do not have the name option in the AUTOEXEC.NCF , it will not execute completely without user intervention. Example: LOAD RTSSRV FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3 NAME=IEE8023 BIND IPX TO IEE8023 NET=11111 LOAD RTSSRV FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2 NAME=IEE8022 BIND IPX TO LAN8022 NET=22222 If problems occur during the binding process, your screen will prompt you with error messages. Please refer to your NetWare 386 manual for details on these messages. -- Edward Liu --Download Driver Pack
