I just e-mailed Johan a program which should display the internal state
of the driver (if it works with the ISA card). This information might
help locating the problem.
I use the PCI card on a system with over 100 modem logins every day, plus
three permanent PPP connections - all through the Cyclades card. Uptime
is now 49 days and all ports are functioning properly.. I have had a few
mysterious crashes on this machine, but I can't tell whether they are
caused by the cy driver or not. The crashes occur less than once a month.
