NWPD.COM is your adapter packet driver. The
following describes its command syntax and use.

NWPD Command Syntax
-------------------

NWPD [-d] [-n] [-w] [-u] [-h] <PD_INT_NO> [IRQ] [IO_BASE]

where:

[-d]	The "-d" option does not start the Ethernet
	adapter until this packet driver is called
	first by higher layer programs

[-n]	The Novell server uses NOVELL ISO-like packet,
	while the Novell workstation uses the NOVELL 8137
	packets. Use this option to convert NOVELL 8137
	into NOVELL ISO-like packets, if necessary.

[-w]	Steve Wallace added a hack to let the packet
	drivers run under Windows. This is not to be
	considered as the proper solution, which is to
	write a TCP/IP package for Windows.

	This hack is enabled only when you use the '-w' switch.

[-u]	This option unloads the Packet Driver.

[-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)

[IO_BASE]
	This specifies the I/O address.

Example 1
---------

Using Accton's EN1688 ISA Ethernet adapter, the following command line
loads the Packet Driver at software interrupt 60h,
at I/O address 300 and hardware interrupt 3.

	NWPD 0x60 3 0x300

Since the default I/O address for this adapter is 300 and the
default IRQ is 3, the above command may be simplified to:

	NWPD 0x60

Note
----
Address parameters, such as the software interrupt and I/O address
are preceded by "0x". For example, "0x60" and "0x300".


Packet Driver Application: Using adapter on PC/TCP Environment
--------------------------------------------------------------

1. Load your Packet Driver.

2. Load the PC/TCP kernel ETHDRV.EXE. See following
	example:

	To load the PC/TCP kernel and allocate 8 packet buffers,
	type the following:

	ETHDRV -p 8	  <Enter>

	This will increase the number of packet buffers from
	5 (default) to 8.

3. You are now ready to run any PC/TCP application, like
	FTP's telnet.


Packet Driver Application: Communicating with NCSA Telnet
---------------------------------------------------------

1. Make sure that 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 onto your system. Refer
	to the NCSA documentation for detailed instructions.

3. Load the Packet Driver (NWPD 0x60). Refer to the
	corresponding section for details.

4. Get help or view the Packet Driver's syntax
	by typing the following command:

	NWPD -h       <Enter>

5. Run the NCSA application that you need. To
	do this, you need to know the host's
	IP address. For example, ftp 192.72.24.202.

How To Update Drivers Manually

After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.

  • Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).

  • If the expanded file has an .exe extension, double click it and follow the installation instructions.

  • Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.

  • Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.

Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
