Hi. First off, to get it out of the way, I work for Comtrol. This is a
Comtrol GMBH (used to be Comtrol UK, now Comtrol GMBH [Switzerland])
product. The two are separate companies now. Anyhow, if you have had
this card for less than 30 days, I would hi,ghly recommend returning it
to the distributor for a RocketPort uPCI 16 port card, as this is a
Comtrol U.S. product and we have a 6.2 driver for our entire RocketPort
line. There is no problem with the 550 cards, but they have no FreeBSD
drivers at all, nor even a Linux 2.6 driver yet. I would just post a
link but we've been upgrading servers this past week and I won't have
the exact link until I get to work on Monday. I am the FreeBSD / Linux /
other Unices guy in tech support at Comtrol U.S. and I would definitely
like to extend an invitation for anyone who would like a copy of the
driver to email me at my work address nick dot thompson at comtrol dot
com, or to call Comtrol Tech Support and ask for Nick Thompson;
763-494-4100 is the number. Once I have the exact link, I will make sure
and get it into this thread.
