( i.e. the bge driver does not support TCP data offload ) The embedded NIC in the 2950 is a BCM5708, however, which is handled by the bce driver, and the if_bce.c source has references to TSO, so it might be supported. Best way to find out is to run "ifconfig -m" and see whether TSO4 is listed in the capabilities line for your nic. Then again, a PE2950 should be able to saturate a gigabit NIC quite easily even without any offloading. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
