Before installing the CN-1000 card, the following must be configured on the card:
•
•
•
Base Memory Address
Host Interface Access type (8 or 16-bit)
CN-1000 card’s interrupt.
4.1 Base Memory Address
The CN-1000 card interfaces to the PC via a 4 Kbyte dual port memory. This dual port
memory must be mapped to an unoccupied, contiguous 4 Kbyte host memory address space,
and is restricted to addresses in the range C000:0000 to EF00:0000.
NOTE:
The CN-1000 card’s dual port memory must be mapped to an unoccupied
4 Kbyte host memory region in order to avoid conflicts with other interface cards and
system memory. If a conflict exists, the system will not operate properly.
In addition, when using a 386 or greater host PC, caching and shadow memory must be
disabled for the 4 Kbytes of memory used by the CN-1000 card.

Appendix A - Running the Card Diagnostics
The CN1000 Diagnostic Software provides a simple set of displays and controls to allow a
CN1000 installation to be verified.
The software is a DOS application. It must be run in DOS; it cannot be run from within
Windows.
Running the Diagnostics
1. Using Command Line Arguments.
The command line arguments for the Diagnostic Software are used to specify the hardware
parameters to be used by the software to access the CN-1000 test card.
The command line syntax is as follows.
CN1000 [?] [-dDP_Addr] [-iIrq] [-mMacId] [-o]
All arguments are optional and will default to the values described below if they are not used.
Each argument is described below.
?
Display an explanation of the command line syntax.
-dDP_Addr
Set the dual port base address segment to DP_Addr. This value is assumed to be in
hexadecimal. The default value is D000.
-iIrq
Set the interrupt request number to Irq. The default value is 12.
-mMacId
Set the MAC ID of the CN-1000 to MacId. The default value is 0. If the MAC ID is set to 0,
the CN-1000 will be initialized, but will not attempt to join the network.
-o
Enable support of old CNA10 test cards (Allen-Bradley cards made before the CN-1000).
The default value is to support the CN-1000 card.

Pyramid Solutions
The following example command line sets up the Diagnostic Software to interface to a CN1000 with a dual port address of E000:0000, an IRQ of 5, and set the MAC ID to 15.
CN1000 -dE000 -i5 -m15
2. Using the Optional Configuration File
The command line arguments can also be stored in a configuration file, CN1000.CFG. This file
must be present in the same directory where the CN1000.EXE executable is stored and run.
If the software detects the existence of the CN1000.CFG file, the parameters are read from the
file first, then any command line arguments, if any, are processed. Hence, the command line
arguments can be used to override any configuration file settings.
The configuration file is a text file which can be edited using any text editor.
The components of the configuration file are as follows:
