Re: Speed of LAN Card

With the 'lanadmin' command. Have a look at the man page for usage information.

Re: Speed of LAN Card

To view the current LAN setting:lanadmin -x 0

(where 0 is the card's instance or PPA number, found with lanscan).

Gurudatta,

To check the speed use:
# lanadmin -x

- where PPA is the instance umber , can be found with # lanscan

Shalom Guru,

lanadmin has another menu driven feature after picking the ppa.

dis

means display.

This will tell you whether you have anything useful connected to the cable.

Note on 1000 BT cards. Configuration wise, everything needs to be auto megotiate to get best speed.

To know what to expect, check the server doc at http://docs.hp.com

Hi Guru,

You can do like below

$ /usr/sbin/lanscan
Hardware Station Crd Hdw Net-Interface NM MAC HP-DLPI DLPI
Path Address In# State NamePPA ID Type Support Mjr#
0/1/2/0 0x00163573C1C9 0 UP lan0


$ /usr/sbin/lanadmin -x 0
Speed = 1000 Full-Duplex.
Autonegotiation = On.

for more info man lanadmin
