be is supported, although its performance is rather lackluster at the
moment. I use a be at home in an SS5 with no problems (other that
lackluster performance ;-) From what I hear the hme is not yet a great
performer, although that was a few months ago - things may have changed.
hmm... i have a be in my SS2 i'll hae to test out (now that i can connect
it (cross over) to other 100mbit ethernet devices at home). one of the
problems with 'be' is that it isn't a full duplex device. it is also
well-known that it (the hardware) sucks and is slow (under solaris).
hme not great? i was getting over 6MB/sec through mine (on a U5) with
ttcp to my alpha (pc164 -- 500mhz) with a tlp card (cross over). not
*too* bad at all...
