SYNOPSIS

fore_dnld [-3] [-i intf] [-d path] [-f objfile] [-r]

DESCRIPTION

The fore_dnld utility downloads FORE Systems’ microcode into the host ATM adapter(s).

OPTIONS

-i intf
Specify which ATM interface to download microcode to. Default is to load microcode into all FORE Systems host adapters.
-d path
Specify the path to prepend to the objfile name. Default is to use current directory.
-f objfile
Specify the microcode binary file. Defaults are: sba200.obj for SBA-200 adapters, sba200e.obj for SBA-200E adapters, and pca200e.bin for PCA-200E adapters.

NOTES

For the PCA200E adapter, if no file is specified on the command line a built-in copy of version 4.1.12 microcode is used. When the option -3 is specified version 3.0.1 microcode is used instead.

Microcode as distributed by FORE Systems is not ready for downloading directly into SBA host ATM adapters. Instead, the supplied microcode needs to be processed with the objcopy(1) command to create an image suitable for downloading. Arguments to objcopy(1) are ""-S -l -Fcoff"".

Microcode as distributed by FORE Systems for the PCA host ATM adapter does not need to be processed.

FILES

~fore/etc/objcopy
command to process FORE Systems supplied microcode.
~fore/etc/sba200*.ucode*
microcode as supplied by FORE Systems for SBA adapters.
~fore/i386/pca200e.bin
