SUMMARY: Problem with 100Mbs network

Hello everyone,

Many, many thanks to those who responded and I've listed those individuals
at the end of this message.  I failed to mention in my original email that
we are using an Extreme switch.  Apparently, Cisco switches require
special attention when changing the network over to 100Mbs.

The bottom line is that the le0 interface on the SS20 is capable of only
communicating at 10Mbs.  After playing with the ndd utility, I've forced
the Ultra 10 to communicate at 10Mbs until we can get a new network card
for the SS20.

Best regards,
