How can I check make/model of installed cards?


Hi!

I have a Linux CentOS box running Asterix PBX and I need to know the type/make/model of the ISDN and other installed network cards. I don't have the login info, but have FTP access to the machine. Is it possible to get this info from the config files?

Any info appreciated!

Hmmm .... empty? That's odd. Is that server physical or virtual?


Cheers,

It's physical. Is it possible it is in a different location?

What type of hardware is it, which version of centos is it running?

If it's something recent I'd say: no


Cheers,

Not exactly sure which version, but I'd say it's 4 or 5 running on a Dell PowerEdge SC430. I will be taking over the admin of this machine soon so would like to have a spare incase it goes down. Thanks for your help anyway!

Well ... you could (some ftp servers will let you) try
to execute a shell command inside an ftp session.

Try
Code:
! /sbin/lspci

Cheers,
Tink
