I have configured my ne card in bochs to signal interrupts on IRQ 3. How can I use this remote DMA to transfer while there is not any 32bit registers to specify memory address in host memory? It is a good first network card to program because it follows a simple design making it helpful for learning , they’re probably dirt-cheap, and it is supported by most PC emulators. However, in reality this was not always the case. Ballston Lake, NY Distribution: However, since the design had been intended only as a proof-of-concept prototype, it implemented bare-minimum functionality: Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.

Some of you seem to have lots of experience but after this it seems that you know just as much as me, if not less. Ne is not technically a card, it is a standard that several implementors follow. In the late s, Novell was looking to shed its hardware server business and transform its flagship NetWare product into a PC -based server operating system that was agnostic and independent of the physical network implementation and topology Novell even referred to NetWare as a NOS, or “network operating system”.

Find More Posts by Tobbe. Note that a packet will always start on a page boundary, thus linkx may be unused bytes at the end of a page.

The base register number can be anywhere from 0x to 0x, as I’ve found, but I usually configure bochs to operate with port 0x as a base.


Note that some odd cards needs a patch read-before-write that isn’t covered here. For instance, register 0x0C on page 0 is the receive configuration register in write mode and “receive status register” in read mode.

Linux Kernel Driver DataBase: CONFIG_NE NE/NE support

Protecting the IoT with Invisible Keys. If you need to reset your password, click here. Novell received a royalty on each card, but was no longer involved in scheduling and ordering manufacturing.

However, networking hardware vendors in general, and industry leaders 3Com and IBM in particular, were charging high prices for their hardware.

You are currently viewing LQ as a guest. The first was a program under which other vendors were invited to manufacture the cards with no royalty as “NEcompatible” cards. This page was last modified on 1 Octoberat MAR7 to be checked by the card.

Open Source Consulting Domain Registration. The data configuration is initialized at 0x49 word transfer, byte order, dual 16bit DMA, loopback disabled. First of all are you sure thats the io and irq of the card? Views Read View source View history. PIO was used instead of DMAno buffering was provided and no provision was made for the use of a transceiver.

Personal tools Log in. The Ne network card uses two ring buffers for packet handling. In order to remain competitive with Novell’s bargain-price cards, 3Com and other vendors were forced to cut the pricing of their entry-level network cards, contributing greatly to the networking boom of the s. It is a liinux first network card to program because it follows a simple design making it helpful for learningthey’re probably dirt-cheap, and it is supported by most PC emulators.

CONFIG_NE2000: NE2000/NE1000 support

This wasn’t exactly obvious, but by looking at the ne2k-pci module from Linux I managed to figure out how to initilize the card and read its MAC address:. Find More Posts limux terminator. The ISA bus did have mastering capability – the NE didn’t use it because it was designed to be cheap.
