FORE ATM NICs and Solaris

FORE ATM NICs and Solaris

Post by Joe Loiaco » Thu, 25 Mar 1999 04:00:00

I've set up Classical Ip PVCs using FOREs v5_0 drivers for Sun ATM
NICs. The PVCs pass through Cisco 7513s. I can't get simple TTCP tests
to work consistently. In fact most large-windows exercises fail. The
following error is present both when it works and doesn't. The error
comes from "snoop". Does anyone know a particular problem associated
with this symptom? Or - what does it mean ????

offset 0: length=1552
(warning) packet length greater than MTU in buffer

This particular version of the message resulted from a ping of size

The MTUs are 9180 everywhere. It seems like Sun thinks the MTU is 1500
or something.

Much TIA,

Hi all,

Does anyone have any experience using Fore Systems PCI ATM cards in a
non-Sun box running solaris.

I am setting up a test IPv6 POP using ATM internally. I saw a good
deal on some nics and was wondering if anyone had any hints or tips
that would help me.

PS: my main servers are two e3500's using Forerunner SBA-200's.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
