Configuring

 

the

 

Gigabit

 

Ethernet

 

controllers

 

The

 

Ethernet

 

controllers

 

are

 

integrated

 

on

 

the

 

system

 

board.

 

They

 

provide

 

an

 

interface

 

for

 

connecting

 

to

 

a

 

10

 

Mbps,

 

100

 

Mbps,

 

or

 

1

 

Gbps

 

network

 

and

 

provide

 

full-duplex

 

(FDX)

 

capability,

 

which

 

enables

 

simultaneous

 

transmission

 

and

 

reception

 

of

 

data

 

on

 

the

 

network.

 

If

 

the

 

Ethernet

 

ports

 

in

 

the

 

server

 

support

 

auto-negotiation,

 

the

 

controllers

 

detect

 

the

 

data-transfer

 

rate

 

(10BASE-T,

 

100BASE-TX,

 

or

 

1000BASE-T)

 

and

 

duplex

 

mode

 

(full-duplex

 

or

 

half-duplex)

 

of

 

the

 

network

 

and

 

automatically

 

operate

 

at

 

that

 

rate

 

and

 

mode.

 

Note:

 

The

 

Ethernet

 

controller

 

for

 

Ethernet

 

connector

 

1

 

supports

 

Serial

 

over

 

LAN

 

(SOL).

 

You

 

do

 

not

 

have

 

to

 

set

 

any

 

jumpers

 

or

 

configure

 

the

 

controllers.

 

However,

 

you

 

must

 

install

 

a

 

device

 

driver

 

to

 

enable

 

the

 

operating

 

system

 

to

 

address

 

the

 

controllers.

 

For

 

device

 

drivers

 

and

about

 

configuring

 

the

 

Ethernet

 

controllers,
