Hi Bart,

I assume there are quite a few iSCSI boxes without Ethernet interfaces ;-)
The box has two Gb Ethernet interfaces that, AFAIK, have hardware acceleration 
iSCSI. (If you search the Internet for "Qlogic iSR6140 Universal SAN 
you may find the whitepaper that shows an image of the connectors of the box)

The access to the hardware is resticted, but having the facts that qlogic built 
the hardware for iSCSI, it's quite possible that they use their own hardware-
accelerated iSCSI HBAs. Will the MAC 00:C0:DD:0D:0C:8B uncover the secret?
