Q57 LAN driver Checksumming, solved?

Hi everyone,

I ran into a communication issue with TCP & UDP with the Q57 nic driver for netware. I downloaded the latest Q57.LAN from the HP support & drivers site, but I wonder if the checksumming issues is resolved with this driver or there is still need to do some configuration within the cfg files, like the option CHECKSUM=OFF

Which HP Proliant server do you have? Which OS version?

Miguel,

I think this is what you are looking for.
The problem was fixed in version 2.38 and above of the Q57.LAN driver. Please see the customer advisory below.

Hi Brian,

Thanks for the Document, now I have a statement from the hp site that supports my recommendation to the Boss... another question about this driver. Do you if the checksum=off parameter has been added to be a default, is it needed anymore or do I still have to write within the netinfo.cfg file?

Thanks for your reply Brian.

Miguel,

I do not know exactly what fixes were put in place and how the problem was resolved. I would imagine that since the CHECKSUM=OFF was just a workaround for an earlier problem that this would no longer be required. The fixes come from Broadcom, not HP.

You may find some more information on the Broadcom website as I cannot find any more technical documents which relate to the fix.

Regards,

Brian
