Users of this software must accept this disclaimer of warranty: "This
software is supplied AS IS. Mark Becker disclaims all warranties, expressed
or implied, including, without limitation, the warranties of merchantability
and of fitness for any purpose. Mark Becker assumes no liability for

Purpose
-------

Write a disk image file to a floppy disk.
Equipment/Software Requirements
-------------------------------

* PC/XT/AT or 100% compatible with at least 256K of RAM and a floppy disk
drive.

* MS-DOS version 3.21 or greater.

* A formatted diskette.

This program uses well-documented generic low-level DOS and BIOS functions.
It should run on nearly every PC in existance. PS/2's should be able to run
RaWrite but this has not been tested.


CAVEAT
------

This program will write ANY disk file to a floppy, overwriting any previous
information that may have been present. If you wish to re-use a diskette
that has been written to by RaWrite then that diskette will probably need to
be reformatted; all MS-DOS specific information will have been erased.
Usage
-----

C> RAWRITE

And follow the prompts. All arguments are case-insensitive.

If the source and destination drives are the same, RaWrite will ask the user
to swap diskettes as required. Rawrite allocates a large buffer in RAM to
reduce the number of disk swaps.

RaWrite may be aborted at any time by typing ^C or CTRL-Break.

for Comtrol(TM) RocketPort(R) Series Controllers
DRIVER: 6546 (RCKTFOSS.EXE, RFSMALL.EXE, RFMULTI.EXE)
VERSION: 1.71
REVISED: 12/15/97

OVERVIEW
======================================
RCKTFOSS is a DOS terminate-stay-resident (TSR) program that
provides a software interface for controlling RocketPort serial
cards. The "FIDO/Opus/SEAdog Standard Interface Layer" (FOSSIL)
has been a longtime standard for connecting BBS software to
multiport serial cards. INT14 BIOS functions are also supported
with the -j option.

RCKTFOSS requires a approximately 60K of memory and can
be loaded into high memory using the DOS 'loadhigh' command.
A non-buffered version, RFSMALL, is included which takes only
24K of memory. RFMULTI is another version which will work with
multiple RocketPort cards.

HELP
======================================
This driver includes command line help. To access help,
type RCKTFOSS -H at the DOS command line and press Enter.

LOADING THE DRIVER
======================================
To load the driver, issue the following DOS command line from
either the DOS prompt or a batch file:

[loadhigh] rcktfoss [-option -option]

Example: rcktfoss -p180 -c3 -l38400 -mn8

The options are explained in detail following the QUICKSTART.

QUICKSTART
======================================
Here are some typical driver configurations:

rcktfoss.exe -p180 -c3 -mn8
Multiport setup for ISA-bus RocketPort. This supports 8 ports
starting at COM3 (FOSSIL & INT14 Port:2). The RocketPort base
address is 180H.

rcktfoss.exe -b -c3 -mn8 -l38400
Multiport setup for PCI-bus RocketPort. This supports 8 ports
starting at COM3 (FOSSIL Port:2). Baud Rates will be locked
at 38400 for all ports.

rcktfoss.exe -p180 -c1
Single port setup for ISA-bus RocketPort. This supports 1 port
(COM1,fossil:0). It will use the first port on the RocketPort.

rcktfoss.exe -p180 -c1 -o1
Single port setup for ISA-bus RocketPort. This supports 1 port
using the 2nd port on the RocketPort board, but the program
will see it as COM1.

rcktfoss.exe -j -p180 -f0 -l9600
Single port setup for ISA-bus RocketPort using INT14 BIOS calls.
The base address is 180H, flow control is set to none (-f0),
and the baud rate is locked at 9600.

rfmulti.exe -mn24 -p180,100 -k8,16
Multiport, multiple board setup for two ISA-bus RocketPorts.
First RocketPort has 8 ports and a base I/O address of 180h,
while second RocketPort has 16 ports and a base I/O address
of 100h.

Guide

Product Overview
The RocketPort PCI series multiport serial card fits into the PCI slot of a
personal computer, and uses a 36 MHz processor that is specifically designed to
process asynchronous serial communications.
The RocketPort PCI series uses Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs)
technology to replace most hardware components, including:
• The processor
• A serial controller
• Bus interface logic and other miscellaneous logic
You can install up to four RocketPort PCI cards in one PC, with up to 128
additional serial ports, and you can install any combination of PCI-bus and ISAbus
RocketPort cards.

RocketPort
Terminology
For the purposes of the following discussions, “RocketPort ISA” cards means any
interface type including 4-port RJ45, 8-port RJ11, Quadcable, and Octacable, or 8/
16/32-port model.
These products are referred to as “RocketPort PCI” cards:
• RocketPort PCI-bus boards (any interface type including 4-port RJ45, 8-port
RJ11, Quadcable, Octacable, and 8/16/32-port models)
• RocketPort Plus models
• RocketPort PCI 422 models
• RocketPort Universal PCI-bus boards (any interface type including Quadcable,
Octacable, 8-port low profile, 16/32-port models)

Before Installing the Hardware
Read this subsection:
• If you already have one or more RocketPort ISA cards installed in your
system.
• If you plan to install a combination of RocketPort ISA and RocketPort PCI
cards at this time.
Existing RocketPort
ISA Cards Installed
You must deconfigure and remove any existing RocketPort ISA cards before
installing RocketPort PCI cards. After you have successfully installed the
RocketPort PCI cards, reinstall the RocketPort ISA cards.
Explanation
The BIOS on your computer automatically handles I/O addressing for RocketPort
PCI cards when you first power up the computer after installing the cards.
I/O addresses for RocketPort ISA cards are set manually using DIP switches on
the card. If you install an ISA card before installing a RocketPort PCI card, the
ISA card addressing may interfere with the computer’s ability to recognize the
RocketPort PCI card which may prevent the PCI card from functioning properly.
Additional
Considerations
If you are mixing RocketPort ISA and PCI cards, set the DIP switches on the ISA
cards so that the first ISA card that you install is the “first” card for I/O
addressing purposes, even if it is physically the second, third, or fourth card that
you install.

RocketPort and RocketModem
Driver Installation for Linux

Installation Procedure
Use this procedure to install the driver.
1. If you have not done so already, install the hardware using the Hardware
Installation documentation.
2. If necessary, download the current device driver, copy and extract the files to
the /usr/src directory on the Linux system. For example:
Change to the /usr/src directory and use the untar command.
cd /usr/src
tar xzvf filename.tar.gz
A subdirectory of /usr/src now exists called comtrol. This contains the
RocketPort/RocketModem driver and associated files.
3. Recompile the RocketPort/RocketModem driver.
Note: This is not always necessary, depending on the version of your kernel,
but it is safe to do.
make clean
make
4. Install the RocketPort/RocketModem driver as root:
make install
5. If you are using more than one ISA RocketPort/RocketModem board, or have
installed an ISA RocketPort or RocketModem board at a non-standard
address, you will need to set up the file /etc/rocketport.conf. The /usr/src/comtrol
directory contains a sample rocketport.conf file. Copy it to the /etc directory and
edit it according to the comments contained in the file.
Note: This step is NOT necessary, if you are using only PCI RocketPort or
RocketModem boards.
6. Optionally, edit your /etc/rc.d/rc.S file (or other appropriate boot-up script) so
that the rc.rocket script runs automatically each time your system boots. This
is done for you automatically if you are using a system with System V init files,
such as is used in the RedHat or Debian releases.
7. Either reboot to load the driver into the currently running system, or
manually load the driver running the rc.rocket script with the start argument.
For example:
/rc.rocket start
8. Configure your applications and/or your getty scripts as appropriate for your
application.
Note: The RocketModem looks to Linux like a RocketPort card with modems
attached; you can refer to the RocketModem AT command set on the
Comtrol CD or ftp/web sites.
9. For PCI-ONLY installation:
Edit the rocketport.conf script to remove or comment out the boardx=0xxx"
statement.
10. Optionally, edit your /etc/rc.d/rc.S† file so that the rc.rocket script runs
automatically each time the system boots. For example:
/bin/sh /etc/rc.d/rc.rocket
†This file may have a different file name, depending upon the Linux
distribution type.
Note: The rc.rocket script requires that setrocket be installed in the /bin
directory. The setrocket program creates the ttyRx devices (where x is a
number designating the port). The setrocket program is structured much
like the familiar setserial program, and performs a similar function.

Using MiniCom to Test
Comtrol Serial Ports

This procedure discusses how to use MiniCom in Linux to test ports using a null-modem cable connected
between two ports. If necessary, cabling information is available in each product’s hardware installation
documentation.
Note: This document uses ports ttyR0 and ttyR1 in the examples. You will

Note: Linux is case sensitive, be sure to use the proper case. tty is lower case, R, V and SI are in uppercase.
Instructions for testing modem products are included at the end of this document.
Testing Serial Ports
Use this procedure to test serial ports:
1. Verify that the driver has been installed and loaded using the installation documentation.
2. Connect a null-modem cable to Ports 0 and 1 on the device.
3. Log in to Linux if you have not already do so.
4. At the system prompt, change directory to the /dev directory so that a listing of the created Comtrol ports
may be seen.
[[email protected]/root]# cd /dev
5. List the Comtrol ports.
[[email protected]/dev]# ls ttyR*
This should show the tty ports that have been installed beginning at 0 (zero) and sequentially numbered
to the highest port on the device. For example, a RocketPort 16 has ttyR0 through ttyR15 displays as:
ttyR0 ttyR10 ttyR12 ttyR14 ttyR2 ttyR4 ttyR6 ttyR8
ttyR1 ttyR11 ttyR13 ttyR15 ttyR3 ttyR5 ttyR7 ttyR9
6. Return to the home directory:
[[email protected]/dev]# cd ..
7. Start Minicom with the setup option to configure the appropriate port.
[[email protected]/root]# minicom -s
The following warning message may appear:
minicom:Warning: Configuration file not found, using defaults
The following screen should appear:
[Configuration]
Filenames and paths
File transfer protocols
Serial port setup
Modem and dialing
Screen and keyboard
Save setup as dfl
Save setup as...
Exit
Exit from Minicom
8. Using the up and down arrow keys select Serial port setup. The following window should appear:
A - Serial Device : /dev/modem
B - Lockfile Location : /var/lock
C - Callin Program
D - Callout Program
E - Bps/Par/Bits : 38400 8N1
F - Hardware Flow Control : Yes
G - Software Flow Control : No
Change which setting?
9. Enter a and the cursor should move to the end of A - Serial Device : /dev/modem.
10. Using the backspace key, change modem to ttyRx (
where x is a number of the port to test. This example uses Ports 0 for the first terminal window, so the
line should read, A - Serial Device : /dev/ttyRx
Note: Linux is case sensitive, be sure to use the proper case. In this the first terminal window we will use
Port 0, so the line should read A - Serial Device : /dev/ttyR0
11. With the cursor at the Change which setting? option, press the Enter key to close this screen and return to
the configuration screen.

Solving Modem-Related Problems
If you have problems connecting to a modem-equipped
port, disconnect the cable to the modem or turn off the
modem. You can use the cu command to test a port with no
modem present. After connecting to the port, reconnect or
power on the modem and set the modem parameters.
The most useful tool for diagnosing dial-out problems is
the -d9 option to cu. Using this option causes cu to display
diagnostic output. To do so, follow this syntax:
cu -d9 -l devicename phonenumber
Where devicename is the port you are trying to use and
phonenumber is the number you are trying to dial.
If you get a “connected” message when you test the modem
with cu but no response to an AT command, follow these
steps:
1. Move the modem to a standard serial port and try it
there. If it works on a standard port but not on a
RocketPort port, the problem lies in the RocketPort
board or port configuration.
2. Move the modem back to the RocketPort port.
3. Verify that the modem switch and software settings
are correct.
4. Check the modem cable to make sure it is attached at
both ends.
5. After issuing the cu command, press Enter several
times and watch the lights on the modem. The receive
light should flash. If only the send light flashes, the
local echo may be turned off. Use the ATE1 command to
turn on the modem’s local echo feature.
6. If no lights flash, the modem cable may be defective.
Replace it.
7. Use the RocketPort Diagnostics to verify that the port is
working.

Solving Printer-Related Problems
To identify and resolve printer problems not related to
transparent print, follow these steps:
1. Verify that a serial printer is powered up, connected to
the correct port, and on-line.
2. Verify that the printer is connected using the correct
cable. See the RocketPort Hardware Installation Card
and your printer manual for connector pinouts and
cable specifications.
3. Move the printer to a standard serial port, and try it
there. If it works on a standard port but not on a
RocketPort, the problem may lie in the RocketPort
board or port configuration.
4. Move the printer back to a RocketPort port.
5. Enter this command to send a file directly to the
printer port:
cat /etc/termcap >/dev/term/rXX

Installing the Device Driver
After installing the RocketPort card and extracting the
driver, follow these steps to install the RocketPort driver.
1. Boot the system, login as the system administrator
(root), and invoke the pkgadd utility.
pkgadd rckt
2. Press Enter to select the ALL option.
3. Select the number and type of cards you are installing
by answering the questions presented during the
install. See the Hardware Installation Card for I/O
DIP switch settings for ISA series cards.
4. Shutdown the system and turn the computer off:
shutdown -y -i6 -g0
5. Configure the RocketPort cards using the information
in the following discussions.

Terminal Sessions in UnixWare 2.1.x
The following procedure is a step-by-step example of how
to enable login services and log in under UnixWare 2.1.x.
Adapt this procedure as needed.

Enabling Login Services
This example enables port r0a for direct connection at
38,400 baud.
1. Connect a null modem cable from RocketPort Board 1,
Port 0, to the modem port of a dumb terminal.
2. Set the terminal modem port baud rate to 38400, 8
data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit. If needed, reinitialize
the terminal so that it is using the new settings.
3. Enter this command to create a port monitor named
rckttest:
/comtrol/rckt/addttymon rckttest
4. Enter this command to create port service:
/comtrol/rckt/addttysrv rckttest r0a 38400_8N
5. From the terminal, enter your login name and
password. If you get gibberish in response, check the
terminal baud rate setting and verify that it matches
the baud rate setting on the server port. If you get an
intelligible response but still can’t log in, check the
parity and data bits settings.
To see the current settings for the RocketPort port,
enter this command on the system console:
stty -a < /dev/term/r0a
6. From the terminal, move around the system and open
files to verify that everything is working correctly.
Access the dcu utility to verify that the system is
interpreting ASCII control sequences correctly.
7. When you are finished, type exit and log out.

Solving Printer-Related Problems
To identify and resolve printer problems not related to
transparent print, follow these steps:
1. Verify that a serial printer is powered up, connected to
the correct port, and on-line.
2. Verify that the printer is connected using the correct
cable. See the RocketPort Hardware Installation Card
and your printer manual for connector pinouts and
cable specifications.
3. Move the printer to a standard serial port, and try it
there. If it works on a standard port but not on a
RocketPort, the problem may lie in the RocketPort
board or port configuration.
4. Move the printer back to a RocketPort port.
5. Enter this command to send a file directly to the
printer port:
cat /etc/termcap >/dev/term/rXX
Where XX is the port to which the printer is attached.
a. If you get nothing, check to make sure the device
driver is loaded, the port is enabled, and that you
are in fact connected to the port you think you’re
connected to. If all of this is true, connect the
printer to the COM1 or COM2 port and repeat this
step. If the printer still fails to print, the problem is
in the printer. If the printer does print, run the
RocketPort diagnostic.
b. If you get a partial file printout or garbled
characters, go to the sections on Flow Control.
c. If the file is printed correctly, but you are unable to
print from an application, check the application
setup.
d. If the file is printed correctly, but you are unable to
print through the UNIX spooler, go to the section
on UNIX Spooler Problems.

port, disconnect the cable to the modem or turn off the
modem. You can use the cu command to test a port with no
modem present by using the loopback plug. Attach the
loopback plug to the port being tested and enter data; it
should appear (echo) to your screen.
After connecting to the port, reconnect or power on the
modem and set the modem parameters.
If you get a “connected” message when you test the modem
with cu but no response to an AT command, follow these
steps:
1. After issuing the cu command, press Enter several
times and watch the lights on the modem. The receive
light should flash. If only the send light flashes, the
local echo may be turned off. Use the ATE1 command to
turn on the modem’s local echo feature.

Follow these steps to remove the existing RocketPort
driver:
1. Log in as the system administrator (root) and invoke
the pkgrm utility. Use this syntax:
pkgrm rckt
2. If you have other drivers to remove at this time, do so.
3. Shut down and reboot the system so that your changes
take effect.
shutdown -y -i6 -g0

Extracting the Driver Files
This driver is released in a .z file. The package is released
with the following file name format:
180xxxxY.tar.Z
where:
180xxxx is the Comtrol file name.
Y is the revision letter.
tar.Z means that the file has been compressed.
Note: The doscp command does not exist in UnixWare 7.
The following procedure requires that you have
Skunkware™ loaded so that you can use the mcopy
command.
1. Insert the diskette that contains the UnixWare 7 file
you downloaded.
2. Copy the 180xxxxY.tar.Z file from the floppy to the
/var/spool/pkg directory. For example:
mcopy a:180xxxxY.tar.Z /var/spool/pkg/180xxxxY.Z
3. Return to the command prompt as root, go to the /var/
spool/pkg directory, and type the following commands
to create a directory structure named rckt.
uncompress 180xxxxY.Z
tar xvf 180xxxxY
4. Go to Installing the Device Driver to install the driver.

Solving Modem-Related Problems
If you have problems connecting to a modem-equipped
port, disconnect the cable to the modem or turn off the
modem. You can use the cu command to test a port with no
modem present by using the loopback plug. Attach the
loopback plug to the port being tested and enter data; it
should appear (echo) to your screen.
After connecting to the port, reconnect or power on the
modem and set the modem parameters.
If you get a “connected” message when you test the modem
with cu but no response to an AT command, follow these
steps:
1. After issuing the cu command, press Enter several
times and watch the lights on the modem. The receive
light should flash. If only the send light flashes, the
local echo may be turned off. Use the ATE1 command to
turn on the modem’s local echo feature.

USING COMTROL DIAGNOSTICS

You will need to download at least two files from the Diag
directory to create your own bootable floppy diagnostic diskette.
Contained in each Diag directory are the following files:

* Diskette image file (*.i)

* Rawrite.exe

Note: The Rawrite3.doc file contains similar information as
this file.
MAKING BOOTABLE DIAGNOSTIC DISKETTES
------------------------------------
To run the diagnostics, you will need to create your own bootable
diagnostic diskette using a High-Density (HD), 1.44M diskette and
using the directions for one of the following operating systems:

* Windows

* DOS

* Unix

-------

To create a bootable diagnostics diskette, after downloading the
image file and Rawrite.exe from the Comtrol ftp site:

1. Obtain a formatted 1.44MB diskette.

2. Go to the appropriate Diag directory for your hardware type
and double-click on Rawrite.exe.

RaWrite may be aborted at any time by typing ^C or CTRL-Break.

3. Enter the disk image source file name. For example:

150xxxxY.i or 180xxxxY.i

where: xxxx are numbers and Y is an alpha-character.

4. Enter the target diskette drive. For example: a

5. Insert the formatted diskette into the target drive and press
the ENTER key.

DISCLAIMER

This is not the recommended solution for multiport serial board
development. You should consider some standard solutions prior to
committing to this RocketPort specific code. Consider using Comtrol's MSDOS
INT14-FOSSIL driver which is a MSDOS TSR. The advantage here is that
other drivers for standard com-ports and other multiport products exist,
and the driver is a separate component maintained by Comtrol.
The INT14-FOSSIL driver can perform as a standard INT14 PC COMM BIOS
driver or as a more powerful INT14 FOSSIL driver. An INT14 FOSSIL
driver is an enhanced INT14-BIOS driver which
is capable of block reads and writes. The FOSSIL INT14 extensions
have been popular for BBS use. The INT14-FOSSIL driver can also be
run in multiple DOS-BOXes in a multitasking environment.
The INT14-FOSSIL driver also contains sample C code to make
your development easier.

So in other words, please DO NOT use this DOSAPI tool set if you
do not have to. Download and attempt to use the MSDOS INT14/FOSSIL
driver for MSDOS development. Download and use the Windows driver
for Windows development.

Comtrol will provide no additional development assistance with this
code. What you see is what you get. We will be happy to accept
bug reports, and to attempt to maintain this code, but we will not
offer general development assistance.

Examples:

* If the RocketPort hardware does not satisfy your needs, or
you feel it is not documentation adequately, we cannot offer
additional help. Further hardware documentation is considered
proprietary, and is not available.

* If you want to compile this code using a GUI tool set(Visual-C)
you are on your own, we will not provide assistance in doing so.

* If you need to use the HUGE memory model, we cannot provide
assistance in doing so. You are expected to have the software
expertise.

* If this code set does not function for you, it is assumed that
you have the expertise to fix it. We cannot offer direct
assistance in doing so.

DISCLAIMER, REAL TIME DEVELOPMENT

The RocketPort hardware is not a good choice for generating
event based interrupts. If you are looking for hardware which
is very proficient at generating interrupts, then look at
16550 hardware. The RocketPort hardware is geared at moving
lots of data efficiently, preferably without interrupts.
INSTALLING

To install, make a new directory and copy the DOSAPI.ZIP file into it.
Then run>PKUNZIP -D DOSAPI.ZIP
(Use the -D option to unpack the directory structure.)
This should unpack things and you should find a
SAMPLE, TEXT and BAUD directory within this directory.

To test the installation, go into the SAMPLE directory and run
TERML.EXE. The TERM.C program uses a new auto-detect feature
aaAutoConfig() which requires no installation setup. It will
perform the appropriate PCI-BIOS calls to locate any PCI boards,
and will also search for ISA-boards.

Info
There is an extensive readme file zipped with the driver. 6546.zipSUBJECT: DOS INT14 & FOSSIL Driver readme.txt
for Comtrol(TM) RocketPort(R) Series Controllers
DRIVER: 6546 (RCKTFOSS.EXE, RFSMALL.EXE, RFMULTI.EXE)
VERSION: 1.71
REVISED: 12/15/97

OVERVIEW
======================================
RCKTFOSS is a DOS terminate-stay-resident (TSR) program that
provides a software interface for controlling RocketPort serial
cards. The "FIDO/Opus/SEAdog Standard Interface Layer" (FOSSIL)
has been a longtime standard for connecting BBS software to
multiport serial cards. INT14 BIOS functions are also supported
with the -j option.

RCKTFOSS requires a approximately 60K of memory and can
be loaded into high memory using the DOS 'loadhigh' command.
A non-buffered version, RFSMALL, is included which takes only
24K of memory. RFMULTI is another version which will work with
multiple RocketPort cards.

HELP
======================================
This driver includes command line help. To access help,
type RCKTFOSS -H at the DOS command line and press Enter.

LOADING THE DRIVER
======================================
To load the driver, issue the following DOS command line from
either the DOS prompt or a batch file:

[loadhigh] rcktfoss [-option -option]

Example: rcktfoss -p180 -c3 -l38400 -mn8

The options are explained in detail following the QUICKSTART.

QUICKSTART
======================================
Here are some typical driver configurations:

rcktfoss.exe -p180 -c3 -mn8
Multiport setup for ISA-bus RocketPort. This supports 8 ports
starting at COM3 (FOSSIL & INT14 Port:2). The RocketPort base
address is 180H.

rcktfoss.exe -b -c3 -mn8 -l38400
Multiport setup for PCI-bus RocketPort. This supports 8 ports
starting at COM3 (FOSSIL Port:2). Baud Rates will be locked
at 38400 for all ports.

rcktfoss.exe -p180 -c1
Single port setup for ISA-bus RocketPort. This supports 1 port
(COM1,fossil:0). It will use the first port on the RocketPort.

rcktfoss.exe -p180 -c1 -o1
Single port setup for ISA-bus RocketPort. This supports 1 port
using the 2nd port on the RocketPort board, but the program
will see it as COM1.

rcktfoss.exe -j -p180 -f0 -l9600
Single port setup for ISA-bus RocketPort using INT14 BIOS calls.
The base address is 180H, flow control is set to none (-f0),
and the baud rate is locked at 9600.

rfmulti.exe -mn24 -p180,100 -k8,16
Multiport, multiple board setup for two ISA-bus RocketPorts.
First RocketPort has 8 ports and a base I/O address of 180h,
while second RocketPort has 16 ports and a base I/O address
of 100h.

1. Unzip the 6542.ZIP contents in an empty directory.

2. If you are running a Worldgroup version prior to V3.0, then
unzip the V2.ZIP file.

If you are running Worldgroup V3.0, unzip the V3.ZIP file.

3. Run install.exe.

The install program asks you to verify the source and destination
directories, and then continues to copy the required files.
After this is done, the install program starts up the Worldgroup
Server. A complete readme file should be available in the
WGSERV directory as README.TXT for configuration information.

History
20 Mar 2000 - 5.05
Updated AIORCKT.DOC

11 Feb 00 - V5.04
Update the driver to support the PCI RocketModem boards. Also added support for PCI detection by making the driver NBI aware. The FINDRCKT DOS utility has been removed and its functionality has been moved inside the driver and can be used by entering 'LOAD AIORCKT FINDPCI'. With The PCI detection now in the driver the method of loading the driver for a PCI board has been changed to 'LOAD AIORCKT PCI'. A simple terminal utility, 'RCKTTERM.NLM', has been added. It provides a way of selecting a board and a port or ports for LOOPBACK testing or a method of talking directly to a modem.

11 Feb 99 - V5.03
Modify FINDRCKT to identify RP 4RJ, fix 32port bug.

20 May 98 - V5.02
Recompile AIORCKT using SDK 2.0c for 3.12 compatibility. Add 56K V.90 RocketModem definitions.
Tinker with AcquirePort to reject HYPERBAUD attempts on non-HYPERBAUD (i.e., non-921) boards.

14 Apr 98 - V5.01
NWCCON fails to complete initialization of ports associated with modems defined as 'United Kingdom' or 'United States'. Altered modem descriptions to 'UK' and 'USA'.

1 Apr 98 - V5.00
Added international RocketModem support. Added error and info code numbers.
-FABA

9/30/97 - V4.02
This release adds support for the Ring Indicator status bit on the RocketPort Plus (921) board. It also fixes a problem with NOVELLs 'GetPortsRollCall'. It returned 0 for the 'external status' and 'changed external status' fields.
-WRD

8/13/97 - V4.01
This release is essentially the same as V4.00. It was necessary to change the revision because of the way the files are grouped when the driver is shipped. The problem was in INETCFG. It was impossible to select the HYPERBAUD option for the 921 board. This required changes to the AIORCKT.ADI file. To keep revisions straight it became necessary to rev the driver. This driver did ship on the RocketModem diskette (6550).

RocketPort Board (ISA/PCI/MCA)
Disk Reference: 6536 (V1.5, see history.txt file)

RocketPort(R) Device Driver for the Windows (TM) 3.1 Operating System
RocketPort Device Driver for the Windows for Workgroups 3.11 Operating System

This disk contains two drivers:

* A Windows 3.1 RocketPort Driver, V1.5
* A Windows for Workgroups Driver, V1.4

The SETUP.EXE program is new and contains these features:

* Has the ability to uninstall the driver for you.
* Has help information.
* Has the ability to install either Windows 3.1 or Windows for
Workgroups 3.11 driver version.

If you are running Windows for Workgroups 3.11 (WFWG) then the SETUP program
allows you to select either the Windows 3.1 driver or the WFWG driver.

The WFWG driver is actually the same driver used for the Windows 95 OS.
It does not support opening COM ports above COM9 (for 16-bit applications).
If you require this, you will want to continue using the Windows 3.1
driver. The advantage to using the Windows for Workgroups driver is
that it will work with the new applications (Microsoft(R) FAX, RAS) designed
specifically for Windows for Workgroups.

Additional information is available by running the SETUP program and
selecting HELP.

The RocketPort ISA board requires that the DIP switches to be configured
for a free block of 68-byte I/O address space. The board ships with
a default switch setting of 180H, which is normally available for use
in most machines.

To install the driver, follow these steps:

1. After you have installed the controller, run the SETUP.EXE program.
For hardware installation information, use the Hardware Reference Card
that came with the controller.

Note: Make sure that following selections do not conflict with other
peripherals installed in the system or an existing COM port
number on your system.

2. Select an unused I/O address range for each controller. If
you are installing a PCI or MCA controller, select PCI-BUS or
MCA-BUS, respectively.

3. Select a single IRQ for an ISA-only installation. The
WFWG3.11 driver can run without an IRQ, while the Win3.1
driver requires an IRQ. If you
are installing any PCI controllers in the configuration,
the IRQ is assigned by the PCI slot and the BIOS setup
program which came with your computer.
If you have problems, you may need to run the BIOS setup
program to determine which interrupts are assigned to
which PCI slot.

4. Select the starting COM port for the device driver.


5. Click the OK button after making your selections.

When using the Microsoft TAPI, there may be a long delay in
responding to adaptive answer. You may receive the CONNECT message
twice.

Some FAX applications including Microsoft FAX, may have problems
operating in FAX class 1 & 1.0.

For these reasons, Comtrol Technical Support recommends using FAX
class 2.

---------------------------------
INSTALLING THE DEVICE DRIVER(PCI board)

Use the following procedure to install the device driver for
the first time with a RocketPort PCI board.

After the board is installed in the machine, when Windows 2000
powers up the Found New Hardware Wizard will see this new PCI
board as a PCI Simple Communications Controller. Select
search for driver files and click next. On the next sheet
select "Other Locations" to search for drivers.
You will then need to type in the path to the driver disk
or directory with the RocketPort drivers.

After the driver files are copied over, you can set the starting
com-port name by starting the Device Manager in the control panel,
select Multiport serial adapters and then
select the RocketPort card. An options sheet is available
to adjust these options.

---------------------------------
INSTALLING THE DEVICE DRIVER(Pass 2 - RocketModem II PCI board)

If you are installing a RocketModem II PCI board for the first
time, the Found New Hardware wizard will start a second time
after the driver for the RocketModem board has been installed.
This second pass is necessary to locate and install the modems.

Initially, the wizard will see the (first) new PCI modem as a
Conexant Compatible External PnP Modem. Select search for driver
files and click next. On the next sheet select "Other Locations"
to search for drivers. You will then need to type in the path to
the driver disk or directory with the RocketModem drivers.

The remaining modems on the RocketModem II board will be installed
automatically once the installation for the first modem is done.

---------------------------------
INSTALLING THE DEVICE DRIVER(ISA board)

Use the following procedure to install the device driver for
the first time with a RocketPort ISA board.

After the board is installed in the machine, run the Add Hardware
Wizard from the Windows 2000 control panel. Select Multiport serial
adapter to install. Then select the button.
You will need to type in the path to the driver disk or
directory with the RocketPort drivers.

The resources should be selected according to your switch
selection on the RocketPort board. The RocketPort ISA board
switch setting default from the factory are 180H io-address.

INSTALLATION PREREQUISITES

1. This guide assumes that you have already installed the
Windows NT operating system (OS) and that you understand
OS operation. This product was developed and tested
using Windows NT Release 3.51, Windows NT Release 4.0,
BackOffice 4.0, Terminal Server 4.0, and Citrix WinFrame
Release 1.7.

These instructions are based on Windows NT Release 4.0.
If you are using another version, adapt the instructions
as needed.

2. You must have at least one RocketPort or RocketModem
adapter installed before installing this driver. See the
hardware documentation for more information.

3. If you are using NT 3.51 or an early version of NT 4.0
with no service packs applied, and using the
RocketPort/RocketModem adapter to provide dial-in (RAS)
access to the NT server, verify that NetBEUI is installed
before installing RAS.

Under NT 4.0, RAS will not work properly unless you have
at least Service Pack 3 applied. For more information
about service packs and updates, contact Microsoft.

4. If you are installing the RocketPort/RocketModem in a
server without an existing network adapter (NIC), you
must install network services and the Microsoft Loopback
Adapter software first. See the Microsoft documentation
for more information.

5. Finally, if you are upgrading from an earlier version of
the RocketPort/RocketModem device driver software, you
must remove the old software before installing this new
version. DO NOT use the Update option.

Version History
=====================================================================

v 5.02 - Uncomment CopyFiles directive in INF for 16 port devices in a 64-bit
installation in order that Plug-N-Play knows what driver and system
files are necessary for those devices.

v 5.01 - Change how unique device identification for devices is made in Vista
and 64 bit Windows due to Microsoft change in the PCI driver so that
correct Quad/Octa device can be identified when COM port names are
being assigned and when Property Page communicates with driver for
proper display for these devices in the Device Manager.

- Remove code from driver which frees device resources (i.e. COM names)
when removal of an existing device is requested by Plug-N-Play because
another RocketPort device is being added to the system.

v 5.00 - Initial release for 64 bit Windows OS support. 32 Bit components are
based on Windows XP/2000 Driver (A/N 18000001) version 4.74.
