Is it somewhere buried in the vmware distrib and I could get it off that? Finally, once all our ring buffers are set up, we need to give their addresses to the card. However – you gave me an idea – to try to find the driver files in the vmware vmtools install. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.

You also need to specify the physical address MAC address you want the card to use.

You also need a simple way of incrementing the pointer and wrapping back to the start if necessary.

Depending on your design this may be preferable. Please enter a title. Actually it should fix by VM Ware. You probably want to set it to zero enable transmit and receive functionality, receive broadcast packets and those sent this physical address, disable promiscuous mode. After you famliy a Windows NT4 virtual machine, install a new virtual.
This means that the index of the register you wish to access is first written to an index port, followed by either writing a new value to or reading the old value from a data register. I have an old Windows NT4 partition that I wanted to set up as a virtual machine.
Well this worked a treat, Thanks, now i have the same problem with am for Multimedia Audio control with in Vmware, any ideas? During normal initialization and use of the cards, the CSRs are used exclusively. Oh very luck i found you guys its frustrating when cant install the AMD driver.
Just need to run VMWare Tools. Each of these then contains a pointer to the actual physical address of the memory used for the packet. However – you gave me an idea – to try to find the driver files in the vmware vmtools install. Please type your message and try again.
Pcj interrupt mask – if set then an interrupt won’t be triggered when a packet has completed sending. I then tried once more adding the AMD PCnet adapter but pointing the “Have Disk” path to the above path – and bingo – it took it, and on reboot the device was there and started and working. The initial Windows installation zipped right through, however, when I went to configure the network adapter none was listed.

The card uses two ring buffers to store packets: The card regularly scans all the transmit buffers looking for one it hasn’t sent, pncet then will transmit those it finds. Select type of offense: And you may want to set bit 11 of CSR4 which automatically pads Ethernet packets which are too short to be at least 64 bytes. That I could get from you?
We will flesh out the interrupt handler later, but you should install the interrupt handler here as otherwise you will get crashes due to unhandled interrupts.
We simply fail and return.
You can do this by either waiting for an interrupt if you didn’t disable the initialization done interrupt in CSR3 or by polling until CSR0 bit 8 is set. After you have properly handled an interrupt, you will need to write a 1 back to the appropriate bit in CSR0 or CSR4 before sending EOI to you interrupt controller or the interrupt will continue to be signalled.
It has built-in support for CRC checks and can automatically pad short packets to the minimum Ethernet length.
The card maintains separate pointers internally. Retrieved from ” https: You should also have a variable that stores the current ‘pointer’ into each buffer i.
