Re: Onyx 2 IR3 Resolution Issue with 2 RM's installed

Yeah I think this is right - the GE EEPROM stores the board configuration along with the default vfo and will use this when it matches, otherwise it will output at a safe resolution. This certainly explains the problems we both had. It doesn't matter, the important thing is that we both now have 2 w...

Re: Onyx 2 IR3 Resolution Issue with 2 RM's installed

Hi Irinikus,

I am glad you have it sorted, I think this is pretty much what I did when I fixed my problem.

Did you remember to dump the contents of the GE EEPROM before you fixed the issue to test my theory? If so can you post what .vfo file it was specifying?

Re: FORE Systems Forerunner ES-3810 NMM firmware needed

There is, but only only using the method I described as far as I can tell. I can't find any option in the FORE software itself, only the option to upload a new firmware.

Re: WTB Fore Systems VMA-200E VME ATM card

Hi Dexter1,

It's the right board but the wrong interface connector - mine uses ST optical connectors rather than the UTP copper connector on yours ;o(

It is possible for me to use this, but currently my switch only has optical ATM connection.

WTB Fore Systems VMA-200E VME ATM card

Hi All,

Does anyone have a Fore Systems VMA 200E VME ATM network card suitable for an Onyx? This has to be the VMA-200E variant, I have the older VMA-200 and I can't get it to work with IRIX 6.5.xx - because drivers are not available.

Cheers,

Jeb

Re: Help needed with a FORE Systems VMA-200

So after inspecting the 6.2 drivers there does indeed seem to be 2 versions of this card - this release of the drivers contains both vma200.bin and vma200e.bin files. Unfortunately attempts to install the 6.2 drivers under 6.5.22 have failed, so I am face with either switching back to IRIX 6.2 (whic...

Re: Help needed with a FORE Systems VMA-200

I did check the jumper settings and they seem to be set to the default positions in the user manual - this is what alerted me to the fact that my card might be different as the dip switches are in different positions than indicated in the manual. The VMA-200E has SW1 in one corner of the board and S...

Re: Help needed with a FORE Systems VMA-200

So talking to some others it is possible that this is an earlier revision of the card and therefore may need earlier drivers. Would anyone happen to have them? I am not having much luck finding them on the internet.

Cheers,

Re: FORE Systems Forerunner ES-3810 NMM firmware needed

I am glad you resolved your issues! We use the ASX-200BX models exclusively in our microwave DS3 system.... Nice! That is very cool. I know what you mean about spare parts, I still need to get a 100Mbps module for mine so I am scouring ebay regularly. If you ever fancy wasting ~5 hours of your life...

Re: FORE Systems Forerunner ES-3810 NMM firmware needed

I hate breaking things. So I bought another one off these on ebay. I then extracted the flash rom using the inbuilt Mon960 monitor which took over 5 hours in total as it has to be dumped by serial as plain ASCII, and I had to make 2 copies as characters would go missing - so I needed a second dump t...

Hi All,

I am after two Dual R14K Node boards for an Origin 2000 or Onxy2 - does anyone have any for sale? Alternatively i might consider Dual-R12K 400MHz.

Preferably in the UK or EU.

Thanks in advance,

FORE Systems Forerunner ES-3810 NMM firmware needed

Hi,

Does anyone happen to have a firmware file for a Fore Systems Forerunner ES-3810 NMM? I recently acquired one but had an unfortunate accident and erased the flash rom ;o(
