Over Thanksgiving break I was able to check to see if the driver
for 25MHz Efficent which I wrote worked on was operational on various
versions. I was able to get 1.3.3 to talk to 1.4 and 1.4.1 to talk to
1.4. Those were the only configurations I tried. So as far as I know
the problem is not in the ATM layer.
I configured the interfaces and set up routing via ifconfig and route.
