Hi again,

that was *really* fast, :-)
Thanks to Niclas Sodergard [], who told me to try "ifconfig
e1000g0 plumb". That worked perfectly well, :-)
And, thanks to Hutin Bertrand [], who mentioned
the nice command "ifconfig -a plumb" - I didn't know that you can use -a
with plumb, good to know for the next time, :-)

Not to forget, thanks to some other guys for lettin' me know they're out of
office, :-))

Have a nice hackin',

Betreff: Solaris 10 x86 + Intel GBit-Nic

Hi gurus,

a (hopefully) quick question: I have a SUN V20 running Solaris x86, and
we've just plugged an INTEL Gbit Ethernet Card into it.
I did a "devfsadm -v", and voila, it created /dev/e1000g, as I expected.
But, I can't configure the card, "ifconfig e1000g plumb" gives a "no
such file or directory".
Nevertheless, the card must be present, because, weird enough, a "snoop
-d e1000g" works and shows the traffic on the NIC...
I'm confused, :-)
Why can snoop use the card, but ifconfig can't??

Any ideas?

Will - of course - summarize.

Thanks, and have a nice hackin',
