TAP driver requirements?

TAP driver requirements?

Postby chennecke » 11. Feb 2008, 19:38

I tried to install the TAP driver. Upon reboot it complained in LANTRAN.LOG about not being able to load a message file that looked a lot like it's from the GenMAC package.

So what are the exact requirements for the TAP driver? Does the GenMAC helper daemon have to be installed? Which version of GenMAC is required?

Are you sure that comes from the TAP driver ?
It doesn't come with a msg file, and I have never seen it asking
for one.

Post your lantron.log here, so we can see the msgs.

Tap has nothing to do with GenMac besides being made by the same programmer :-)
It doesn't really have any requirements - I have always just installed it as last NIC - and never seen it fail.

The file GENM32M.MSG is from the GenMAC package.

Hi,

I have a similar problem here also and the TAP driver doesn't seem to work.
A string search of PROT.OS2 shows that it does indeed contain the GENM32 string, so the message is coming from the TAP driver and not GENMAC (which don't have).

Did you get any further with this and does the TAP driver work for you?

Yes, I installed GenMac and set DPATH, so the TAP driver can find the message files in the \GENMAC\DRIVER subdirectory. Apparently, the messages were success reports. The driver loads fine. So far I have only tried NAT networking with VBox though.

There are some memory issues. Things didn't get loaded until I added EARLYMEMINIT=TRUE to CONFIG.SYS.

Thanks, good to know.

I'll have another try with HIF over this long weekend.
