                   Accton EN1208 PCI Ethernet Adapter
                   Packet Driver Installation Overview

The driver 1208PD.COM can be used for the following Accton PCI adapters:

               Accton EN1208 PCI Ethernet Adapter

1208PD syntax:

1208PD  [-i] [-d] [-n] [-w] [-p] [-u] <PD_INT_NO>


[ -i ]         Forces driver to report itself as IEEE 802.3 instead of
               Ethernet II.

[ -d ]         Delayed initialization.  Used for diskless booting.

[ -n ]         NetWare conversion.  Converts 802.3 packets into 8137 packets.

[ -w ]         Windows hack, obsoleted by winpkt.

[ -p ]         Disables Promiscuous mode.

[ -u ]         Uninstall.

<PD_INT_NO>    This specifies the software interrupt (IRQ) where you'll
               load the packet driver. It must be in a range from 0x60 to 0x80.

               Note: The default PC/TCP kernel is loaded at interrupt 0x61.
                     (Don't load the packet driver there!)


The following command line loads Accton's EN1208 PCI Ethernet adapters
Packet Driver at software interrupt 60h, transmission media is
automatically detected:

1208PD -a 0x60  or 1208PD 0x60

Note: (1) The default transmission media is automatically detected.
      (2) Placement of 0x prior to the hexadecimal parameters.

Once the Packet Driver is loaded, run the PC/TCP kernel ETHDRV.EXE
to start PC/TCP applications.

    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 buffers (from the
       default of 5) prevents dropping of packets due to buffer shortage.

       ETHDRV -p 8 <Enter>

    c. You are ready to run PC/TCP applications
       (e.g., 'ftp', 'telnet').

       For example, ftp, is the host address.
       (You must know the host address.)

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 (1208PD 0x60):

   a. Refer to the "Packet Driver Syntax" section above.
   b. To view the hint screen, type:

      1208PD -h <Enter>

   c. The following example will load the packet driver
      using interrupt vector 60 (hex).  The I/O_BASE and IRQ
      will be read from the adapter:

      1208PD 0x60   <Enter>

4. You are now ready to run NCSA applications
   (e.g., 'ftp', 'telnet', etc.)

   For example, ftp, is the host address.

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.
