As an update to my continuing attempts to get PLIP working:
I was successful in getting PLIP working on my Micron machine
at home, connecting to my AMD laptop. No special options ifconfig --
plip0 for the Micron, plip1 for the laptop.
However, when trying to connect to the Compaq Deskpro 50
at work, ifconfig plip0 defaults to IRQ 5, hardware address
0x3bc. But running diagnositics in MS-DOS ("MSD") shows the
IRQ as 7. I tried overriding the IRQ by running:
ifconfig plip0 192.168.1.3 pointopoint 192.168.1.1 -arp irq 07
But I get the message:
SIOCSIFMAP: Device or resource busy.
Any pointers on this?
Thanks (again) in advance,
NOTE: All machines are running kernel version 1.2.13. I also
had to get an updated NetKit to get the version of ifconfig which
displays the IRQ and hardware address.
