Need Help on Network Configuration!!

Hi there,

I am really a newcomer for QNX. Could anyone give me a detailed
procedures on how to install the network for the QNX system? I have
installed TCP/IP already.
Thanks.

What is your setup, give us more info.

You may want to check the online documentation.  This
is well explainned.

TCP/IP and QNX native networking are totaly independant.

Ok, here is a quick run down of what you need to know.

1) You will need to have each node be a different logical
address.  This is often overlooked as QNX tends to configure
each node to be 1 if you take the defaults.  Go to /boot/build
and modify the Proc parameter -l for the file hard.1 to another
node, probably 2 in your case.  The rebuild the .boot file.
There's a makefile available in /boot to help, or use
"buildqnx" directly.  Once created, copy the new boot
image to /.boot.  Before you do this backup /.boot to
/.altboot and /etc/config/sysinit to /etc/config/altsysinit
for safety.  If you make a mistake you can always boot
the old image by pressing ESC when asked during boot.

2) You will need to install 2 QNX licenses on each node.
You can do this with the license program.  

3) You need to start Net on each node, usually in the sysinit,
but do it manually when starting up.

# Net &

4) You will need to start a Net driver.  There's a wide
variety of available drivers for various network cards.
Probably the most common is the Net.ether1000 for Ne1000
and Ne2000 cards.  I'm very familiar with this driver.
In theory you can start this driver without any parameters,
although -v is advised.  It's supposed to auto-detect
the i/o port and interrupt.  I haven't had good luck
with this feature, so I usually add them.

# Net.ether1000 -i 11 -p ff80 -v &

5) You need an /etc/config/netmap file that will look something
like this:

    1          1      0000B4 532C91
    2          1      00A076 A008BD

You can get the Card id's when you start Net.driver with the -v
parameter.

6) After creating the netmap file, run the netmap program

# netmap -f

to load the new file.

7) Run nameloc on at least one of the nodes.

8) Connect your Ethernet cards either through a hub,
or with a switching cable direct.

That should do it for setup.  Testing when there's
a problem is another matter.

1. Help on network card configuration

Hi

I had problems in connecting the target server to the target agent over
ethernet. I got the rpccore timeout. I booted the target by floppy and have
added 'o=elPci' at the end of boot parameter. (I use 3c509c-tx ethernet
card).

However it seems that the card is not initialized and attached after VxWorks
is booted from floppy. I want to know how I could configure the IRQ and I/O
address of the 3c509 card?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Lawrence
