Hardware autodetect

Hi, All!
I have some questions about autodetect of network hardware. There is a
net where every node has some net card (above than 1) from same
producer. All cards connected by PCI (Plug & Play). I run autodetect (or
I run Net.* without -p and -i parameters). As result, all netware
drivers are go and I don’t know LAN id that were set each card.
Can I change the LAN id for running Net.* driver at run-time from
programm?
Can I specify the LAN id for each card when run autodetect?

You have to start the drivers manually. Sucks, but true.

I’m not exactly sure I understand what you are saying here, but you should
know that the driver will automatically add it’s mac address into the
in memory netmap database when it starts. This means, you can simply run
“netmap | grep {node}” to obtain the mac address (assuming 1 LAN adapter).

Perhaps you are referring to multiple LANs; in which case, I would need
some further explanation about what you are trying to do.


A prototype will always be built, whether it is shipped, depends on how much
money is left in the budget.
