Attempting to us 2.0 with a Silicom PXG4BPi - Quad Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet



  • Does pfSense 2.0 beta support the PXG4BPi - Quad Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet PCI-X Bypass Server Adapter Intel® based yet, will it?

    Architecture:
    Dual Intel 3.2Ghz processors
    1GB Ram
    Mirrored 9GB 320 Ultra Fast SCSI
    two embedded NICs
    PXG4BPi in the PCI Express slot

    Guess these are your networkports. Could be you just need to add the device ID to the right driver?

    output from "pciconf -vlb" would be handy i guess.



  • That should show using the em driver as it's Intel based. However PFSense uses a custom kernel which may not include it so then you would have to alter loader.conf to get it to work. That particular card has been supported since about the end of 2007 in FreeBSD.
    You can find the man page for em(5) on the freebsd site if you need to know exactly what you can and can't do with that card.



  • @Gloom:

    That particular card has been supported since about the end of 2007 in FreeBSD.

    It sometimes happens that a newer chip revision gets used in the card but the model number doesn't get changed. If the chip revision is very new the appropriate driver may not recognise it.

    As previously suggested, it would be useful to have the output of the pfSense shell command pciconf -vlb



  • Well, I really need to get the machine up, so I found a different Intel card and used it. But I do want to get a resolution to this, so I moved the PXG4BPi to a HP DL360 I have.

    New architecture:
    HP DL360
    1 2.8Ghz Processor
    2GB ram
    Mirrored 75GB drives
    2 embedded NICs
    PXG4BPi

    The attached files show the dmesg for this device and the output from pciconf -vlb.

    Thank you for your help on this.

    dmesg.txt
    pciconf.txt



  • There are 4 devices like this:

    none2@pci0:2:4:0: class=0x020000 card=0x002c1374 chip=0x002c1374 rev=0x03 hdr=0x00
        class      = network
        subclass  = ethernet

    This device identifies itself as Vendor = 0x1374 (Silicom) and Vendor's Id = 0x2c (Quad port Copper Giga Ethernet 546GB Bypass Server Adapter (PXG4BPI)). (Interpretation of numeric IDs taken from pci.ids file on Ubuntu 10.04)

    This is not recognisable as an Intel device without additional information.

    I took a look at the product page at http://www.silicom-usa.com/default.asp?contentID=667
    Perhaps the FreeBSD support means the driver can be downloaded from the silicom dwnloads page.
    A case blind search of the .c and .h files in the FreeBSD sources failed to turn up any instance of Silicom in any of the files I recognised as a LAN driver and failed to find any occurrence of pxg4bpi. I also failed to find any instance of pxg4bpi in the FreeBSD 8.1 hardware release notes.



  • I have located a CD with FreeBSD drivers on it. It looks like I have to compile them. The questions I have are: 1) will I be able to compile them under the beta version of pfSense, and 2) where do I put them after they are compiled?

    Or should I place a copy of the source code on the forum to be included in a future release of the 2.0 Beta?

    1. pfSense is a firewall so it doesn't include any build tools. Best do this on a FreeBSD 8.1 system.
    2. The driver build should generate one or more kernel modules (.ko files) which should be copied to /boot/kernel/ on the pfSense box.

    @seswho704:

    Or should I place a copy of the source code on the forum to be included in a future release of the 2.0 Beta?

    You probably don't want to do that unless you know you have permission of the copyright owners. One or more of the source files will probably identify the copyright owners.



  • @wallabybob:

    1. pfSense is a firewall so it doesn't include any build tools. Best do this on a FreeBSD 8.1 system.
    2. The driver build should generate one or more kernel modules (.ko files) which should be copied to /boot/kernel/ on the pfSense box.

    Ok, so I guess this could be with FreeBSD running as a VM right?
    When I do the install, are there any special packages to install to compile the drivers, or does the install include the development tools?

    Better off not sharing them then.

    Thank you for all of your help, I will reply when I get the drivers built and copied onto the pfSense box.

    Standalone or as VM - either should work. I run FreeBSD on VirtualBox on Ubuntu. From what I have read in the forums others have successfully used VMs on VMWARE

    @seswho704:

    Install is a bit different from a typical Linux distribution: select the appropriate install options. From memory, I usually choose something like developer, no X. There are a few chapters describing the install process in the FreeBSD Handbook at http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/



  • So I built a FreeBSD 8.1 VM, copied the driver source files, compiled the 7.x verison of the driver. Copied the .ko and .kld files to the new pfSense firewalls /boot/kernel directory. Rebooted and it looks like the driver is not loading. I ran kldload and rebooted, same thing, no driver loaded.

    Attached are the latest dmesg and pciconf -vlb listings.

    I am begining to think this will not work.

    dmesg.txt
    pciconf.txt



  • Woot!!!!

    Other than running kldload, the /boot/loader.conf had to have the line if_silbpi_load="YES" added to it.

    The driver for the board has loaded and should be accessible to the system.

    Testing now.

    Thank you for your help.



  • Congratulations on your success.

    You might care to note that /boot/loader.conf is not guaranteed to survive a firmware upgrade, /boot/loader.conf.local is supposed to survive a firmware upgrade (and has survived all my recent firmware upgrades).

    Yup, sort of noticed that when I upgraded to the latest Beta release. I will take a look at the loader.conf.local file and add the proper info there.

    Thank you for your help.
