Zip file contains a pre-compiled .ko driver, the original source code from Interface Masters, as well as their PDF documentation.

Since the kernel is the same in beta12 up to the newest of beta15, it should still work on beta15 as well.

You’d need to also use a startup cronjob on the System/Setup -> Startup/Cron section, such as:

# Startup Script
echo “3600” > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_conntrack_tcp_timeout_established
echo “1048576” > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_conntrack_max
echo 134217728 > /proc/sys/kernel/shmall
echo 134217728 > /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax
cd /Database/niagara2265_r10/;./n2265_load;./n2265_util -a;./n2265_util -0
ethtool -K ETH02 tso on;ethtool -K ETH03 tso on

Those are my custom settings, the last two commands are where the .ko driver. It will cd into the directory, load the driver with “n2265_load”, then use the n2265 utility to turn the heartbeat on Active/Bypass mode, Active if has a heartbeat, then kicks into bypass mode if no heartbeat. Then the last line, ethtool, turns the tso for checksums to be offloaded onto the card’s hardware rather than on the CPU, and misc other offloading features the card can do. Have fun, it’s been such a great card.
