I've been looking for a run of the mill PCI card but its pretty hard
to find one that has drivers for Solaris 10. I'm running on a Sun Fire
x4200. The management port is actually in the form of RJ45. The
keyboard/mouse/monitor is all through a KVM switch. I just recently
tried to use a Perle Ultra Port SI card, but when using the iotcl
calls listed in the original post, they return with errors.
