However – you gave me an idea – to try to find the driver files in the vmware vmtools install. Your way works perfect for me on three Windows NT 4. Or is there any other ethernet adapater that I could get working in a virtual WinNT4? I did so and everything went smoothly and I can boot it as a virtual machine – and installed vmtools – but there is no AMD PCnet Ethernet adapter present.

MODE provides various functions to control how the card works with adaptdr to sending and receiving packets, and running loopback tests. Depending on your design this may be preferable. Change to the Network Adapters screen by clicking the Adapters tab. You also need to specify the physical address MAC address you want pfi card to use.

To actually set up the card registers, we provide it with the address of our initialization structure by writing the low bits of its address to CSR1 and the high bits to CSR2. Also I’m curious – on Win2K, where does vmtools get the adapter driver from? LADR is the logical address filter adqpter want the card to use when deciding to accept Ethernet packets with logical addressing. That I could get from you? During normal initialization and use of the cards, the CSRs are used exclusively.


If you want to keep the current one, you will need to first read it from the EPROM of daapter card it is exposed as the first 6 bytes of the IO space that the registers are in.


We will flesh out the interrupt handler later, but you should install the interrupt handler here as and you will get crashes due to unhandled interrupts. At initialization, you would want the card to ‘own’ all the receive buffers so it can write new packets into them that it receives, then flip ownership to the driverand the driver to ‘own’ all the transmit buffers so it can write packets to be transmitted, then flip ownership to the driver.

You can do this by either waiting for an interrupt if you didn’t disable the initialization done interrupt in CSR3 or by polling until CSR0 bit 8 is set.

Go to original post. You probably want this as it is wdapter easier to poll for this situation which only occurs once anyway.

It really worked for me as well. The card maintains separate pointers internally. Correct Answers – 10 points.

The next section will enable some interrupts on the card. Please type your message and try again. Yes, I did try amx and it didn’t work.

This means that the index of the register you wish to access is first written to an index port, followed by either writing a new value to or reading the old value from a data register. This content has been marked as final. Receiving packets is normally done in your interrupt handler – the card will signal an interrupt whenever it receives a packet and has written it to the receive buffer. I have the same question Show 0 Likes 0.


Retrieved from ” https: I have an old Windows NT4 partition that I wanted to set up as a virtual machine. If it is set, it means the card owns it and the driver should not touch the entire entry.

AMD PCnet Ethernet (PCnet-PCI, PCnet-PCI II, PCnet-Fast)

Click Continue to finish installing the driver. Works for me too!!

Finally, once all our ring buffers are set up, we need to give their addresses to the card. The card uses two ring buffers to store packets: And you may want to set bit 11 of CSR4 which automatically pads Ethernet adapher which are too short to be at least 64 bytes.
