show firmware of network card

hi,
is there a command or way to see which firmware my network card(s) has?
i could imaging that i would see it in the OBP (show-nets; cd /...@../...; .properties) but is there a way to see it in solaris?

Solaris9 (09/05) on a V440 with GigaSwift Ethernet MMF (X4151A) adapters (using ce drivers)

thanks

Not sure if this is what you can use or not - modinfo command (search for modinfo in that page).

Plus, I don't know how you would check if the version this shows is 'up to date'.

Summary

thanks for your answer RTM, but modinfo only shows the version of the kernel module, not the hardware firmware/fcode....

i found a solution:

first, it is possible to see it in the OBP like i wrote...

2nd:
to see it in a running system, you could use:
# prtpicl -v -c network | grep version
--snip--
:version Sun PCI Gigaswift 1000Base-X FCode 2.12 04/04/22
--snip--
#

or 3rd:
# prtconf -pv | grep version
--snip--
version: 'Sun PCI Gigaswift 1000Base-X FCode 2.12 04/04/22'
--snip--

thanks for your time...

regards pressy
