token card and sniffer pro ?

my iBM 16/4 token ring PCI card 2 disconnect/connect every time with sniffer pro 4.75


RE: token card and sniffer pro ?

For token ring LAN you need a network card that is promiscious...  I think if I remember rightly there is a tick box in the properties of the LAN card that needs to be selected. If this works then the card supports this type of mode but Sniffer may not.  The last time I worked with Sniffer they supplied there own driver for a Token ring Madge card and I found better results when using Madge.  You should be able to pick one up very cheap now with most people ditching T/R.  

If it was working fine before have you tried deleting the card from sniffer and readding it?

RE: token card and sniffer pro ?

you're right

if you don't enable promiscious mode sniffer pro can't see all the token network traffic.

This mode is present on the IBM 16/4 token ring PCI card 2

I think there is a problem between an IBM token card and W2K_FR on a desktop computer.

Before i make a new install of W2K_FR, it was working fine on my desktop with the same hardware.

But before i was on W2K_UK.
