Configuring DE500 controller (NIC)?

» close window

The Question is:

We have Alpha 2100 with a DE500 NIC.
Running Decnet IV, Multinet 4.4
We want to setup the NIC to not AUTO sense the XFR speed.
Were getting errors on the CISCO port and think the auto sensing has something
 to do with it.
Were we can do this and the procedure would be helpful..
Thank you

The Answer is :

  Capabilities of and details on configuring the various DE500 models
  are in the OpenVMS FAQ, and in the associated DE500 documentation.
  Ensure you have current console firmware.
  If the particular DE500 device is capable of auto-negotiation but
  is not negotiating correctly, try switching to a non-negotiated
  (fixed) setting for testing purposes.  (The appropriate setting
  depends on the remote end of the connection.)
  As for configuring the CISCO switch and/or Multinet, please contact
  the organizations supporting these respective products.
