The driver for this ATM card is just in the process of being rewritten :
if you feel adventurous, you can cvsup to the latest sources and play
with your hardware



1. Linux [RH5.0], Fore's ATM PCA-200 adapters and LE155 switch

        Hi, everybody,

        In my attempt to "visualize" some capabilities of Linux,
I was trying to have a demo setup with two boxes (P200MMX w/64MB RAM)
with Fore's ForeRunner PCA-200EUX adapters, connected to a LE155 Fore
ATM switch. My question(s !?!) relates to:

        1. What should I do about drivers for the PCI based Fore

        2. What would be a good GUI based network analyzer, or packet
sniffer - I am thinking of something along the lines of NextRay, if
you are familiar with it (for ATM, or even IP over ATM - just need
the graphical stuff to depict throughput for the persons whom the
demo is to be setup for), or even a GUI based equivalent of what NT
has in its built-in Network Monitor (now, that I think of it, this
might be even better).

        Any comments or ideas will be more than welcome and
