Look at my last mail. I tested the script:
We have a switched token ring network with IBM 8270 (800 and 600) and
IBM 8272 (106 and 216) switches. IBM PC's with NT (mtu 4096) and AS/400
(mtu ?). The server are connected directly to the switch.
My machine is a IBM Server 315 with P133, 128MB RAM, Adaptec 2940UW with
3 disks, a CD-ROM and a HP scanner.
Linux is SuSE 6.1 with kernel 2.2.7 and olympic 0.1.8.
What else should you know?
