Thank for the answer. I'have the same matter with bnx2x on rhel6.1 ...
In the H3C documentation there is a subject about vlan (thank to Leland) :
"The default VLAN IDs of the Trunk ports on the local and peer devices
must be the same. Otherwise, packets cannot be transmitted properly."
What did you think about that ?
>From your point of view what will be the best manner to have the thing works
? I've tested the last driver be2net from Emulex without success ...
Eventually I can use another linux distribution ?
Thank you in advance
