Intel Server NIC adapter question...


hi, i recentoy got the Intel Pro 1000 MT server Adapter, and before download the linunx drivers, i wish yo know a thing: In the intel downloads section for that specific drivers there are 3 main options for linux drivers:

- Linux* Gigabit Adapter Base Driver
- Linux* ANS Driver
- Linux* SNMP Package

What would be each one?

Thanks
ALDO

A quick google reveals

Base Driver - Exactly what it says on the tin, the base driver for the card
ANS Driver - Intel(R) Advanced Network Services, used for bonding multiple cards and vlans
SNMP Package - Adds SNMP (Simple Network Message Protocol, I think) functions

It looks like the base driver has everything needs to get the card up and running the other two add the functionality for 2.4 kernels.

There is also an (Intel sponsored Open Source) e1000 driver that comes in the Linux Kernel. I'm currently running this module on a Linux firewall, no problems with it and no need to "taint" the kernel.
