Installing the Driver
Now that you have installed the adapter in the computer, you are
ready to install the driver. The following installation uses the Red
Hat Network Configuration Graphical User Interface (GUI).
Note: To install the driver manually, see the instructions
included in the README file on the installation CD.
The following instructions describe how to install the driver on a
Red Hat 8.0 UP system or on a Red Hat 8.0 SMP system. Be sure to
select the correct driver for your system. Use the driver included in
the RedHat8.0 directory for a UP system or the RedHat8.0.SMP
directory for a symmetric processor system.
To install the driver:
1 Login to the Red Hat desktop as root.
2 Add the ANA-7711 NAC adapter to the list of configurable
adapters:
a Mount the NAC Installation CD and go to the appropriate
driver directory.
b Run the install-ana7711 script from a terminal window, enter:
./install-ana7711
3 Launch Red Hat’s Network Configuration GUI. From the Main
Menu, point to System Settings and click Network.
Alternatively, open a terminal window and enter neat.

Configuring the NAC Adapter
Now that you have installed the driver, you can configure the
following settings:
■
buffer_megs—The amount of memory allocated for temporary
packet storage.
■
autoneg—The autonegotiation port speeds of the NAC and the
connected switch.
■
flow—The flow control or pace of data transmission.
You can change the parameter values in the command line of
insmod or you can change the values by appending them to existing
lines in /etc/modules.conf.
A sample /etc/modules.conf file is shown below. The parameters are
appended to the install ana77drv line.
install ana77ptl insmod -f ana77ptl
install adptoe insmod -f adptoe
install ana77drv insmod -f ana77drv
buffer_megs=512 autoneg=enable flow=enable
add below ana77drv ana77ptl adptoe
add below adptoe ana77ptl
4-1
ANA-7711 IG.book Page 2 Friday, May 9, 2003 12:24 PM
ANA-7711C/F Installation Guide
Setting the Buffer Size
The buffer size identifies the amount of system memory allocated
for temporary packet storage. For example, buffer_megs=512
indicates that 512 MB has been allocated as buffer memory.
Increasing this amount improves performance and provides an
extra safety margin against packet loss and dropped connections
when dealing with large numbers of connections.
To adjust the size of the buffer, change the value of the buffer_megs
parameter. The default is 16. The minimum is 1 and the maximum is
512 MB.
Enabling and Disabling Autonegotiation
To adjust the port speed, set the value of the autoneg parameter to
enable or disable. For example, autoneg=enable. The default
value is auto which enables autonegotiation. Enable is the same as
auto.
■
enable—This enables the autonegotiation of the port speed
between the NAC and the switch. Both the NAC and the
connected switch must be set to enable.
■
disable—This forces the NAC to operate at 1000 Mbps. Use disable
only when autonegotiation fails on certain switch models.
Note: You can disable autonegotiation using the
ANA-7711F only. This is not supported on the ANA-7711C.
Enabling or Disabling Flow Control
To manage the data flow between the NAC and the switch, set the
flow parameter to enable, disable, tx (transmit), or rx (receive). For
example, flow=enable. The default value is auto which enables
flow control.
■
enable—This enables the NAC to pause data transmission
when data overflow occurs during transmit and receive.
■
disable—This suspends the ability to control data overflow.
■
tx—This enables flow control during transmit only.
■
rx—This enables flow control during receive only.
