Keyword Description ------------------------ Configure Configures an adapter in one of three ways: 1. Automatically with /auto parameter 2. Using a specified adapter configuration file 3. Using command-line configuration parameters Echoserver Enables a designated adapter to function within the echo server. Help Displays general or command-specific help information. To get command-specific help, type: 3C59XCFG Help [command keyword] Language Invokes the program in full Windows mode using a specified external resource file. This option provides support for multiple languages via a different resource file for each language supported. List Displays a list of installed adapters recognized by this program and their assigned adapter numbers. Run Runs the diagnostic tests (which can also be specified from a file) on a selected adapter and writes the results to the screen, a file, or a printer.CONFIGURATION=============The adapter can be configured in one of the following four ways, which aredescribed in greater detail below: - Full-Screen Windows Mode - Command Line with Auto Configuration - Command Line with Explicit Parameters - Command Line with Configuration File Full Screen Windows Mode ------------------------ To configure the adapter using the full-screen windowing, type 3C59XCFG and press ENTER. Then click Configure Adapter on the Install menu. Command Line Options -------------------- Defaults: Configure has /Auto and /Adapternum:1 as defaults. For example, if only "3C59XCFG Configure" is used, adapter 1 will be automatically configured. /Adapternum:<N> specifies the adapter number to be configured for PCI and EISA computers. Run the LIST command separately to determine the adapter number to use here. /Slot:<S> specifies the physical slot number of the adapter to be configured in EISA computers. NOTE: The /Adapternum:<N> and /Slot:<S> parameters can be used with any of the Configure options that follow. They are both intended for use whenever multiple adapters are present in the computer and recognized by the Configuration and Diagnostic Program. Command Line with Auto Configuration ------------------------------------ Command syntax: 3C59XCFG Configure /Auto The /Auto parameter configures the adapter to automatically select the media type. All other option settings are left unchanged. NOTE: To set the media type, the program will attempt to detect what media type is being used. Therefore, you should connect to the network first, then run /Auto, and it will configure the media type for you. Command Line with Explicit Parameters ------------------------------------- Command syntax: 3C59XCFG Configure [/Bsize:<N> /Xcvr:<N> /Tr:<N> /Fullduplex:<N> /Optimize:<N> /Linkbeat:<N>] Command-line configuration parameters are used to configure the adapter using only the option settings you specify. Some parameters are for all adapters, while others are for PCI only. For example, /Bsize:<N> is a PCI- only parameter, because with EISA adapters, the computer vendor's configuration utility or the option disk handles the setting of the Boot PROM size. In most cases, any combination of parameters can be used. Therefore, it is possible to modify only a few settings if needed. See below for a list of parameters. Parameter Description --------------------------- /Bsize Boot PROM Size (PCI only). Possible values - 8, 16, 32, 64, Disabled. /Tr (or /Xcvr) Transceiver (PCI only). Possible values - 100BASE-TX, Tp, 10BASE-T (same as Tp), Coax, Aui, External (same as Aui). /Optimize Network Driver Optimization. Possible values - Normal, Network, Cpu. /Linkbeat Link beat enable/disable (pre-10BASE-T standard only). Possible values - Enabled, Disabled. NOTE: Try this setting ONLY if pre-10BASE-T standard hubs are in use. /Fullduplex Full duplex enable or disable (for 10BASE-T only). Possible values - Enabled, Disabled. NOTE: Enable this setting ONLY when the adapter is connected to a 10BASE-T repeater supporting full duplex. Otherwise, it will bring down the network. Command Line with Configuration File ------------------------------------ Command syntax: 3C59XCFG Configure /Configfile:<filename> This syntax is used to configure an adapter with the settings specified in an ASCII configuration file that can be created and modified by any text editor. The file name can be a fully qualified MS-DOS file name including a path. A standard format for the file must be used, as follows: - Variable names and values should match the wording in the full-screen configuration window in most cases. - Each variable or value line should begin with an "at" symbol (@), followed by a variable name, a colon (:), and the value. For example: @Media type: 100BASE-TX - Any comment lines should start with a semicolon (;). - Blank lines and other white space is allowed between variable lines. - The variable names allowed are: Boot PROM size Media type Network driver optimization Full Duplex Link beat - The values allowed are the same as those shown in the full-screen configuration window. Example 1: @Network driver optimization:Normal Example 2: @Media type:On-board CoaxDIAGNOSTICS=========== - Full screen Windows mode: To run the diagnostic tests using full-screen windowing, type "3C59XCFG" (without the quotes) and press ENTER. Then click Run Tests on the Tests menu. - Command-line option: Command syntax: 3C59XCFG Run [/Testfile:<filename>] [/RESULTS:[<filename> | PRN | PRNHP]] [/ADAPTERNUM:<N> | /SLOT:<S>] The Run parameter runs the diagnostic tests on a selected adapter and displays the results on the screen. The defaults are Adapter 1 and Group 1 tests. The parameters below are all optional. /Testfile:<filename> specifies a test file that contains a specific test setup description. /Results:[<filename> or PRN or PRNHP] specifies an alternative location to store the test results. This location can be an MS-DOS path and filename, PRN printer port (same as LPT1), or PRNHP, which is an HP LaserJet printer connected to LPT1. /Adapternum:<N> specifies the adapter number to be tested, in the case of multiple adapters installed in the computer and recognized by this program. Run the List command separately (see List below) to determine the adapter number to use. /Slot:<S> specifies the physical slot number of the adapter to be tested when multiple adapters are installed in EISA computers.OTHER COMMAND LINE OPTIONS========================== - Help Command syntax: 3C59XCFG Help [Command Keyword] Help is an online summary of commands. Without a command keyword, it gives a summary of the command keywords. With a command keyword specified, it gives the parameter choices for that particular command. For example, "3C59XCFG Help Configure" gives details about the parameter options for the Configure command. - Language Command syntax: 3C59XCFG Language /Langfile:<filename> Language invokes the program in full Windows mode using a specified external resource file. This option provides support for multiple languages via a different resource file for each language supported. This command requires the /Langfile:<filename> parameter. The file name is the name of the resource file that is loaded by the program. The file name can be a fully qualified MS-DOS file name. NOTE: At this time, there are no alternate resource files included on the EtherDisk disk. - List Command syntax: 3C59XCFG List List displays a list of currently installed adapters (and their assigned adapter numbers) that are recognized by this program. The adapter number is then used as the <N> value for the /Adapternum:<N> parameter when multiple adapters are installed. There are no parameters associated with the List command keyword. - Echoserver Command syntax: 3C59XCFG Echoserver [/Adapternum:<N> | /Slot:<S>] Echoserver enables an adapter to function within an echo server. In the case of multiple adapters, /Adapternum:<N> specifies the adapter number to be configured in the echo server. The /Slot:<S> parameter is available only on EISA computers, and refers to the physical slot in the echo server where the adapter is located.FURTHER ASSISTANCE==================If the adapter fails any of the diagnostic tests, see the Trouble.txt filein the Diag directory on the EtherDisk disk for troubleshootingprocedures.The Support.txt file in the Info directory on the EtherDisk disk providesinformation about obtaining product support for the adapter.EtherDisk ed EtherLink 3Com sono marchi registrati di 3Com Corporation.
