Hi all,

a few days ago, i have mailed this question:


Hi all,

i am looking for a SBUS card with 100Base-TX-Ethernet working on a
SPARC 10 with SunOS 4.1.3.

The problem is, a found only cards for Solaris 1.1.2 and Solaris 2.x and i
can't update my server at this time.

Are any 100Base-TX SBUS cards available for SunOS 4.1.3?

Are special SunOS drivers for 100Base-TX cards available
(perhaps public domain)?


Well, it seems, there is no 100BaseT solution available for Solaris 1.1
or Solaris 1.1.1. I asked Sun in Germany and they said, there also
no patch solution available (patching 1.1 or 1.1.1 until 100 BaseT works ;-).

Some people on this mailinglist thinks, that the Solaris and the SunOS
versionnumber is the same. This is not true. I am working with
this versions, shipped together:

Solaris 1.1 -> SunOS 4.1.3
Solaris 1.1.1 -> SunOS 4.1.3_U1
Solaris 1.1.2 -> SunOS 4.1.4

Have a nice day!
