Hi.......
We have a Sparc10 and Sparc20 Server (Solaris 2.4 on both).
They are both currently networked to our hub at 100mbps Half Duplex.
The network interfaces used on both is "be0" (built in I believe).
The Sparc20 has 2 SunSwift cards ("hme" interfaces), which are currently unused.
Questions.................
How do we specify FULL duplex on the "be0" interfaces????
Is it worth using the "hme" interfaces?
and how do we make those FULL duplex also?????
regards

Don't know much about the "be" interface. For hme interface, you can
set hme:hme_adv_100fdx_cap to 1 amd hme:hme_adv_100hdx_cap to 0
in your /etc/system respectively.
