Re: Cisco PIX 4-port 10/100 card in OpenBSD-current

Why are the Intel cards better than anything else?
How does Intel compare to the 3Com905C for instance?

Everyone claims that Intel is the thing, but haven't actualley seen any documentation on this yet.

For all you pf firewall builders. I just tried installing a Cisco 4-port

and guess what? It works like a charm, so I wanted to share it.
I know people often ask for this type of devices.

Interfaces are detected as separate fxp(4) cards (we all know how good
they are). Dmesg is below. I haven't had a chance to test it in detail,
but so far, they seem to work VERY good.

The PCI bus might turn out to be a bottleneck, though!

Dmesg is below.
