First of all, sorry for the delay in summery.

 Thank you to the respondents who,
in according to appearance were:

1. Dan Lorenzini
I don't think the le driver supports access via ndd
2. Darren Dunham
The LE driver does not support NDD. I don't know of any public
interface to reveal the link status.
3.Casper Dik
/dev/le has only one mode, 10mbit, half-duplex, so setting it makes
no sense.
4.Akash X Dhama

You can run this ndd command with the interfaces which can be run in
multiple modes as hme runs in 10/100 mode you can run this command. le
interfaces run only at 10 Mbps so the error.
Thanks again for your time.

My problem was;

>>>I am trying to find out about the link status of my servers. On all the
machines with interface "le0", I can issue command
ndd /dev/hme link_status or ndd /dev/hme adv_100fdx_cap.
But all other systems, with interface le, I can't issue command.
If I issue the command
ndd /dev/le \?, I recieved the following error.
"couldn't push module 'le', No such device or address".
Also can you please inform me, what is the difference between the following
two options;
Still can't figure out how to check the status of le0. I agree that "le0" is
half duplex, but should be able to check the status.

Thanks so much for your valuable information's.
