32-Bit PCI Bus (fast) Ethernet Adapter Packet Driver Installation Overview ============================================================== PCIPD syntax: PCIPD [-#] [-a] [-b] [-t] [-f] [-s] [-d] [-n] [-w] [-u] [-h] <PD_INT_NO> where: [-#] The "-#" option will let driver work on a specific adapter when multiple 32-bit PCI adapters are found in the computer system. For example, "-1" means the first adapter will be activated by the driver, "-2" means means the second adapter will be activated, ... etc. A maximum of 4 adapters are supported simulaneously. [-a] The "-a" option will let driver perform automatic media detection during driver initialization. The detection sequence is TP 100Mbps Full Duplex --> TP 10Mbps Full Duplex --> TP 100Mbps Half Duplex --> TP 10Mbps Half Duplex If no physical media is attached to the adapter then BNC 10Mbps is the default media for both adapters A. and B., and TP 100Mbps Full Duplex is the default media for adapter C. [-b] The "-b" option is use Coaxial Cable(BNC)(10BASE-2) as transmission media. [-t] The "-t" option is use Twisted Pair(RJ-45)(10BASE-T) as transmission media. And it is also default setting. [-f] The "-f" option enables FULL_DUPLEX feature of the adapters. It make no effect except Twisted Pair is used. [-s] The "-s" option set adapter line speed to 100Mbps. It is a dedicated option for Fastnet adapter. [-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. [-u] This option unloads the Packet Driver. [-h] This option displays the on-line help. <PD_INT_NO> This specifies the software interrupt (INT) where you'll load the packet driver. It must be in the range 0x60 to 0x80. Notice!! The PC/TCP kernel, by default, is loaded at interrupt 0x61 (so don't load the packet driver there!) Example: The following command line loads the 32-bit (fast) Ethernet adapters Packet Driver at software interrupt 60h, transmission media is automatical-detected: PCIPD -a 0x60 or PCIPD 0x60 Note: The default transmission media is automatical-detection. 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 PC/TCP Kernel ("ETHDRV.EXE"). a. Refer to PC/TCP manual, Command Reference section, Chapter 2.3. b. The following example loads the PC/TCP Kernel and allocate 8 packet buffers. Increasing the packet buffer numbers (from the default of 5) prevents dropping of packets 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 22.214.171.124 , 126.96.36.199 is host address. Regard to host address , you must know its address. For information regarding the "FTP's PC/TCP Network Software for DOS" packages, please contact: FTP Software, Inc. 26 Princess Street Wakefield, MA 01880 (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 onto your system. Please refer to the NCSA documentation for detailed instructions. 3. Load Packet Driver (PCIPD 0x60): a. Refer to "Packet Driver Syntax" section above. b. To view the hint screen, type PCIPD -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 adapter configuraion space: PCIPD 0x60 <Enter> 4. At this point you are ready to run NCSA applications (e.g., 'ftp', 'telnet', etc.) For example, ftp 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206 is host address.

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.
