SYMPTOMS

NDIS 4.0 token ring drivers that support PROMISCUOUS mode fail Windows Hardware Quality Lab (WHQL) certification tests.

CAUSE

Token Ring drivers that support the ReceivePackets paradigm reveal a problem with Ndis.sys. When a packet that uses "group addressing" (for example, broadcast) is received, and promiscuous mode is enabled on the adapter, NDIS fails to filter the packet causing invalid addresses to be reported to LLC.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows NT 4.0 or Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Windows NT 4.0 and Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. This problem was first corrected in Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4.0 and Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition Service Pack 4.
