4  Driver Parameters

After the installation of the driver, there will be an entry in the
net.cfg in your nwclient installation directory that identifies your


    It is followed by one or more parameters. Beside the standard
    parameters from Novell client the driver supports the following

Frame type (mandatory)

    FRAME   <Frame-Type>

    This parameter specifies the Ethernet frame types for your network.
    Possible values are:


Bus and device number (optional)

    BUSNUM  <busnum>
    DEVNUM  <devnum>

    With these parameters you can specify the network adapter the
    driver should bind on. This is useful, when there is more than
    one adapter in the system.
    The bus and device numbers are assigned by the BIOS at boot time. When
    the driver is called with the argument '-l' (see below) it shows bus
    and device numbers for the supported adapters in the system.

Connection type

    CONTYPE   <contype>

    This parameter can be used to force link speed and duplex mode.
    The value 1000 limits the speed capabilities in auto-negotiation
    to 1000 MBps. Using other values than AUTO or 1000 turns off
    auto-negotiation and is not recommended.
    Possible values are:


Check Link mode


    When this parameter has been specified the driver uses the first
    supported adapter in the system with a valid link. This parameter
    conflicts with BUSNUM and DEVNUM and will be ignored when BUSNUM
    and DEVNUM are used. When using CHECK_LINK you can load the driver
    only once.
    Calling the driver with the argument '-l' (see below) will show
    all supported adapters and their link status.

Number of receive and transmit buffers


    These parameters specify how many transmit and receive buffers the
    driver shall use. Using more buffers might improve the performance
    but the driver will consume more memory.

    The sum of receive and transmit buffers cannot be greater than 5.

5  Command line arguments

YUKODI     - Installs the LAN driver
YUKODI S   - Shows status of all resident LAN drivers in memory
YUKODI U   - Unloads resident LAN driver from memory
