SCO Unix doesn't recognize D-Link network card - SCO

Hello, I've installed a D-Link DFE-538TX network card in an SCO Unix 5.0.5, but it doesn't recognized the card. It's just a 2-PC-network, just for testing before installing real stuff. So, it's not a conflict of IP numbers. The other PC has Windows 98 to connect with the SCO UNIX server through Telnet. I downloaded the card's driver from Internet ([url]http://support.dlink.ca/ProductView.asp?ProductModel=DFE-538TX[/url]) for SCO Unix: 538TX.vol. Then I have installed it in this way: - doscp a:538TX.vol /tmp/VOL.000.000 - I use 'custom' and followed the following options: Software / Install New / From 'your computer'/MediaImages - Then I entered the directory: ...

    Default SCO Unix doesn't recognize D-Link network card

    Hello,
    I've installed a D-Link DFE-538TX network card in an SCO Unix 5.0.5,
    but it doesn't recognized the card. It's just a 2-PC-network, just for
    testing before installing real stuff. So, it's not a conflict of IP
    numbers. The other PC has Windows 98 to connect with the SCO UNIX
    server through Telnet.
    I downloaded the card's driver from Internet
    ([url]http://support.dlink.ca/ProductView.asp?ProductModel=DFE-538TX[/url]) for
    SCO Unix: 538TX.vol. Then I have installed it in this way:

    - doscp a:538TX.vol /tmp/VOL.000.000
    - I use 'custom' and followed the following options:
    Software / Install New / From 'your computer'/MediaImages
    - Then I entered the directory: /tmp

    Then I get to scoadmin:
    - scoadmin / Networks / Network Configuration Manager / Hardware / Add
    New LAN Adapter /
    - I chose the option: D-Link DFE-538TX 10/100 Adapter
    - I chose the option: Set speed and duplex mode:: Auto
    - I chose the option: Add Protocol
    - I chose the option: SCO TPI NetBios for TCP/IP
    - I wrote down the following parameters:

    Local Host Name: scosysv
    IP Address: 192.168.1.5
    Netmask: 255.255.255.0
    Broadcast Address: 192.168.1.255
    Domain Name: pachacamac
    TCP Connections: 1024
    Pseudo ttys: 64

    Advanced Options:
    Gateway: No
    Administrator for this system:
    Location of this system:
    Frame Format: Ethernet-II

    After that, I answered Yes all the questions about rebuilding the
    kernel.

    However, the SCO Unix doens't recognize the network adapter. When I
    ping 192.168.1.5 (on the SCO Unix Server), it losses all the packages.
    I didn't just reboot the server after installing and setp up the
    network card. I've turned off the system and then turn on.

    Now when the system comes up:
    INIT: SINGLE USER-MODE
    Type CONTROL-d to proceed with normal startup,...
    INIT: New run level:2

    Default Re: SCO Unix doesn't recognize D-Link network card

    I think you've selected the wrong protocol as the card is obviously seen by
    SCO

    remove SCO TPI NetBios for TCP/IP
    and add TCP/IP instead.
