Introduction:
=============

  The Packet Driver for DOS workstations confirms to the PC/TCP version 1.09
  Packet driver specification. This document shows you how to setup the driver
  and how to use the enhanced functions by setting the custom keywords in
  configuration file.


Contents of the Subdirectory:
=============================

    FETPKT.COM          The Packet driver for DOS workstations.
    FETPKT.SYS          The Packet driver for DOS workstations.
    PACKET.TXT          This file.

Installation:
=============

  Before starting with the installation process, make sure that the adapter
  is properly installed and configured. You can use the diagnostic program
  (A:\DIAG.EXE) to make sure your connection with the network is correct.

  Installation Packet Driver:
  ---------------------------------------------------------
   
   Install fetpkt.com
   ******************
    1) Copy the Packet driver to your HardDisk, suppose you copy it to
       C:\PACKET directory.
       EX: copy  a:\packet\fetpkt.com c:\packet\fetpkt.com

    2) Add the following line to C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT
           C:\PACKET\FETPKT -n 0x60 

   Install fetpkt.sys
   *******************
    1) Copy the Packet driver to your HardDisk, suppose you copy it to
       C:\PACKET directory.
       EX: copy  a:\packet\FETPKT.sys c:\packet\FETPKT.sys

    2) Add the following line to C:\CONFIG.SYS
           DEVICE=C:\PACKET\FETPKT.SYS -n 0x60 

Configuration Files:
====================

    Sample of configuration file:
    -----------------------------
    (Suppose PACKET driver is copied to C:\PACKET directory)

    For fetpkt.com
    **************

    File Name:          C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT
    ----------
        C:\PACKET\FETPKT -n  -w  0x60   

      0x60 is software vector number this driver uses.
      -n means Novell packets can be transmitted across this driver
      -w means Window compatible.
     
     
       if you want to link to N-way Device and use auto mode, you can add parameter as follow:         
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -a -n0x60

       if you want to force assigning linespeed equal 100Mbs or 10Mbs,halfduplex or fullduplex,
       you can add parameter as follow:
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -s100 -f -n 0x60  (speed=100Mbs fullduplex)
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -s10 -h -n 0x60   (speed=10Mbs halfduplex) 
       (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword)
       
       if you have two or more adapters, you can add parameter as follow to specify one:

       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -deviceno=13 0x60   (device number=13)
       
       if you have two or more adapters and they have same device number, you can add parameter as 
       follow to specify one further:
       
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -deviceno=13 -busno=1 0x60 (bus number=1, device number=13)
       
       note: driver shows menu for selecting if you don't specify any one and there are two or more
             adapters in the system. you can get the information about bus number and device number
             from this menu
       
       
       if you want to set up your connection type, you can add parameter as follow:
       
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -connectiontype=autosense 0x60 (Auto mode, default value)
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -connectiontype=10baset 0x60 (speed=10Mbs, halfduplex)
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -connectiontype=10basetfd 0x60 (speed=10Mbs, fullduplex)
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -connectiontype=100basetx 0x60 (speed=100Mbs, halfduplex)
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -connectiontype=100basetxfd 0x60 (speed=100Mbs, fullduplex)
      
       if you want to set up your flow control ability, you can add parameter as follow:
       
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -flow_control=hardware_default 0x60 (use hardware value, default)
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -flow_control=enable 0x60 (enable flow control)
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -flow_control=disable 0x60 (disable flow control)

       Note: Driver doesn't care the result of auto-negotiate if the value of 
             this keyword, flow_control , is enable or disable. It just enables
             or disable flow control ability according your setting.

    For fetpkt.sys
    **************
   
    NOTE: All parameters of fetpkt.com are also used by the same style here!

    File Name:          C:\CONFIG.SYS
    ----------
        DEVICE=C:\PACKET\FETPKT.SYS -n  -w  0x60   

      0x60 is software vector number this driver uses.
      -n means Novell packets can be transmitted across this driver
      -w means Window compatible.

       if you want to set up your connection type, you can add parameter as follow:
       
       DEVICE=C:\PACKET\FETPKT.SYS -connectiontype=autosense 0x60 (Auto mode, default value)
       DEVICE=C:\PACKET\FETPKT.SYS -connectiontype=10baset 0x60 (speed=10Mbs, halfduplex)
       DEVICE=C:\PACKET\FETPKT.SYS -connectiontype=10basetfd 0x60 (speed=10Mbs, fullduplex)
       DEVICE=C:\PACKET\FETPKT.SYS -connectiontype=100basetx 0x60 (speed=100Mbs, halfduplex)
       DEVICE=C:\PACKET\FETPKT.SYS -connectiontype=100basetxfd 0x60 (speed=100Mbs, fullduplex)
