The One-Card Network Card Miniport Driver Test assesses the functionality of a miniport driver for a single network card. You can also use this test to verify that the driver supports Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS) functionality.

The following table shows the hardware requirements for the One-Card Network Card Miniport Driver Test.

RequirementsDescription
Two network interface cardsThe network card to be tested should be connected to an isolated test network with no other network traffic. The target device should also have a second network card that establishes a TCP/IP connection to the development workstation running Microsoft® Platform Builder. If you want to monitor traffic on the test network with network monitoring software, you can install a second network card on the development workstation and then connect the second card to the test network. The second network card on the development workstation is not required to run the One-Card Network Card Miniport Driver Test but can assist in troubleshooting problems that may arise.

The following table shows the software requirements for the One-Card Network Card Miniport Driver Test.

RequirementsDescription
Tux.exeTux test harness, which is required for executing the test.
Kato.dllKato logging engine, which is required for executing the test.
Tooltalk.dllApplication required by Tux.exe and Kato.dll. Handles the transport between the target device and the development workstation.
Ndt.dllProtocol driver for the test.
Ndt_1c.dllTux test binary file.
Note   The miniport driver being tested should be recognized by NDIS. You should assign a name to the network card in order for the test to function correctly.

This test is comprised of two binaries, Ndt.dll and Ndt_1c.dll. The Ndt.dll binary file is a protocol driver that binds to the test and support cards. The protocol driver communicates with the underlying miniport drivers through an NDIS wrapper and registers as a stream driver. The Ndt_1c.dll binary file controls the test itself.

Note   When you run the One-Card Network Card Miniport Driver Test, the CETK temporarily copies files to the root directory of the target device. While the test runs, the test dynamically consumes program memory on the target device. Before running the test, verify that there is at least 0.4 megabytes (MB) of free storage memory on the target device. Also verify that there is at least 1.0 MB of free program memory on the target device. If there is not sufficient space in the root directory of the target device or there is not sufficient program memory, the test cannot run.
