Fast Ethernet on VAX? (Duplex)

» close window

The Question is:

Does the DEMNA Ethernet card support full duplex operation and if not is there
 a card for VAX (either 10Mbits or 100Mbit) that does?

The Answer is :

  The reference to the DEMNA (DEC LANcontroller 400) would imply an
  XMI-based VAX system.
  The reference to "duplex" would further imply a request for an
  XMI-based Fast Ethernet controller.
  The OpenVMS Wizard is not particularly aware of any available XMI or
  BI widgets supporting Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet on VAX.
  An indirect connection from the FDDI (DEMFA) XMI controller (via an
  FDDI ring) to Fast Ethernet is potentially configurable via a switch.
  Please see topic 4658 for a discussion of Ethernet as related to Full
  Duplex communications.
