Xenix TCP/IP 1.2
Apricot have just commenced shipment of SCO Xenix TCP/IP version 1.2
(product code SS49970, RRP £400.00). This version of TCP/IP is for Xenix versions 2.3.2
and later on either MCA or ISA bus machines. The following points relate to installations
on Apricot hardware:-
- The driver supports up to four 3Com 3C523, 3Com 3C503 or WD 8003 cards
although mixes of different cards are not supported. Additional support is included for
the IBM Token Ring card and for SLIP lines. A driver for the 3Com 3C527 is available in
the Apricot UNIX/Xenix Server Environment Pack.
- To install a driver run
||to install driver for WD cards
||to install driver for 3Com 3C503
||to install driver for 3Com 3C523
||to install driver for Token Ring
ensuring that you match the software driver to the Reference Disk
settings or switches as appropriate, in particular the WD MCA software default
installation specifies an 8k window, you should use a 16k window as set on the card.
- To configure the driver into TCP/IP run the command 'mkdev tcp'.
This new version defaults to a broadcast address of all 1s. The broadcast address
may need to be changed if you have any previously installed TCP/IP software. Please check
the existing broadcast address of existing systems using the command:-
grep broadcast /etc/tcp
If the value after the word broadcast is of the form nnn.0.0.0 then you
should alter you new broadcast address to all 0s.
- To free up interrupt 3 or 4 (normally used by the sio driver) for use
with your chosen Ethernet card use the command
|./configure -c -d -m 5 -v 3
||./configure -c -d -m 5 -v 4
as appropriate, after moving into the directory /usr/sys/conf.
- If you are adding the second card to an existing single card
configuration you have to run for example 'mkdev wdn' and select d to delete the
configuration first of all. Then do 'mkdev wdn' again, select i to install and after the
first card (wdn0) is set up you will be given the choice of setting up the second card
(wdn1). Therefore, make sure you know the hardware settings of the both cards before you
