check net settings


can someone tell me the best commands for troubleshooting and setting the NIC in tru64.

Nov 18 11:27:51 cgcu087a vmunix: alt1: 1000 Mbps full duplex Link Up via autonegotiation

Re: check net settings

You can check with:

hwmgr get attr -cat network

And change it with lan_config command, see man lan_config for more information.

>>>Backup is running 10 times slower

You may try restart network.
#rcinet restart

Any more observation you have...
