problems with HME NIC on solars 8 and 9
Posted on 2003-10-22
i have an ultra 10 with open boot 3.25. i was running SUSE 7.3 for sparc. i recently purchashed a sunpci card and chose to wipe the sytem clean in favor of solaris.
the problem :
when runnig solaris 8 or 9 the hme nic does not function nor do any indicator lights on the hub indicate a connection.
same system but when running linux, the nic works fine. hub lights indicate a connection.
i have used the ndd command here is what info it gives :
link_status = 1 (up)
link_mode = 0 (half duplex)
link_speed = 0 (10 mbp/s)
transceiver_inuse = 0 (external \onboard nic)
the nick responds to loopback pings but i cannot ping out to any thing. this was set up for a test network. the machines ip info
ip = 192.168.1.3
mask = 255.255.255.0
gate = 192.168.1.1
the cable has been tested with a cable tester and on other pc's with no issues. other machine are able to reach the router/gateway.
how do i get this nic to work under solaris ?
