History

#1 Updated by John Diamond over 1 year ago

The Tecnobox adapter is based on the Intel I210 ethernet chip. The manual for the adapter is attached.

Enabled 'Intel(R) 82575/82576 PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet support' in the 3.16.7 kernel configuration.

Configured 'eth3' for the internal ADC network in /etc/network/interfaces:

auto eth3
iface eth3 inet static
address 192.168.0.1
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.0.0

Note: For the Concurrent boards it appears to be that eth0 is the front panel ethernet, eth1 and eth2 are the backplane VXS interfaces and eth3 is the Technobox adapter. This will probably be different for the 8100s.
