How to configure Full Duplex and TCP/IP

We are using ZIX 4.3.3 and we need to configure the NIC for ful duplexing and we also need to configure it for a TCP/IP default gateway and DNS server to acccess the Interent.

Can you please tell me the commands and procedures for configuring this?

Thanks

My background is with HPUX, but I think I can offer some items to check.

First, there are startup scripts that activate the card(s) and should be a config file that defines the parms of the card. In my case the startup file is in /sbin/init.d/hpgelan. The config file is /etc/rc.config.d/hpgelanconf.

The config file is the one you want to modify. There should be a paragraph of options. One of them should say SPEED or something like that. After the = sign change the parm. There should be header notes. If not try changing the value to "100FD". Your format may be different so double-check before you do this.


You should have files similar to these. This should activate upon boot or reboot.

Please post back. Hope this helps.

Check out the following article and listing (linked within the article) - the listing is the script they use to set up NIM, but the part you want is the following:

###############################################################################
##
## Subroutine: Set hardware parameters
##
################################################################################
set_hardware ()
{
print "============================"
print "SETUP HARDWARE PARAMETERS "
print "============================"
print ""
for I in `/etc/lsdev -Cc adapter -t 23100020 | /usr/bin/grep Available | awk '{print $1}'`
do
display_info "Set 100 full duplex mode on $I" "chdev -l $I -atx_que_size=2048 -arxbuf_pool_size=2048 -a media_speed='100_Full_Duplex' -P"
done

Here is the link to Sysadmin article
After checking it out, double check the man page for the chdev command.
