Xilinx Virtex II MAC & PHY. ( HELP)

Started by Tony K October 18, 2004
Hi 

I am working with Xilinx Virtex II FPGA. There is a soft core MAC and
daughter card PHY. I am not using any kind of Stack. I am trying to
implement Ethernet to Ethernet.  I am able to send packet on the wire
from the MAC through they PHY and I am able receive these packets back
also through the PHY and MAC. I am able to do this loopback through
writing bogus source MAC address and my own MAC address as the
destination address. The MAC does NOT overwrite source address (option
is not selected). Now I have created an arp entry in the table for my
board MAC. ex. arp -s 192.168.1.0 00-00-01-02-03-04. I can verify the
entry its there.  Now when I Ping my board from pc the packet is never
received. Any help will greatly appreciated. I been working on this
for couple of days.


thanks. 

TONY

Is that the exact ip address? The default netmask for that would make it illegal. -- Ben Jackson <ben@ben.com> http://www.ben.com/

If you don't do that already you might run a network sniffer, like Ethereal http://www.ethereal.com/, to trace what is going on on the network. Then you will see whether the packet actually leaves your PC. The IP address that you posted is actually a network address. You might try to use 192.168.1.1. BTW, what is IP address and subnet mask of the PC? Guenter
