I've recently been setting up a server with a D-Link DGE-500T gigabit ethernet card, that needs to connect to a Novell Netware 4.11 server over IPX. Using the nge driver, it came up on the network fine using TCP/IP, but had issues trying to find the Netware server. A 'tcpdump not ip' showed there were definately IPX traffic/SAP broadcasts being picked up by the card, but it refused to get up and running
Changing the card over for a 100mbit one using the vr driver picked the Netware server up without a problem.
Has anyone had any experience with gigabit cards running IPX under FreeBSD -- or just in general? We're currently investigating purchasing a different card to try (we were thinking probably Intel - what's supported best under FBSD?).
The machine in question is running 4.7-RELEASE-p2.
Thanks in advance, Antony
