norton ghost

This is probably an easy one, but if my memory is right there are ghost command line switches that can change the duplex settings when you image over the network.

I image a lot over the network, but when I do it always says half duplex, and I seem to remember seeing the proper network switches on the internet somewhere but haven't been able to find them for some reason.

It would seem that ghost would detect what the duplex is, and if the switch itself is set to half duplex, then I would assume there's nothing ghost can do...have to be changed on the switch itself.

Does anyone have a list or website of the ghost switches for networking? I've found a lot of other switches w/ ghost but nothing dealing w/ networking.

I used ghost corporate 11.5

Which Northon Ghost version and how do you backup over the network?

An alternative solution are free tools like g4u:

A common problem in switched Ethernet is a duplex mismatch between the NIC and the switch. In NetBSD, the default is to negotiate speed and duplex automatically. Other settings can be set manually.

Enforcing 100BaseTX/Full-duplex:

# ifconfig fxp0 media 100BaseTX mediaopt Full-duplex
# ifconfig -a
    fxp0: flags=[...]
        media: Ethernet 100baseTX full-duplex

Using autonegotiation (default):

# ifconfig fxp0 media auto
# ifconfig -a
    fxp0: flags=[...]


or try G4L:

I don't have a server to get ghost images from; instead, I do the master to slave, one PC from the master PC.

I guess you can say that's peer to peer, does the g4 do that, or is it strictly FTP?
