John Long-4
I found a lot of PRO/1000 adapters listed in the em driver man page but
CT version is not included.

Does anybody know?

Thanks

Hi John,

Im pretty sure that this variant intel Pro1000 would be supported
by the em(4)  Driver

 I have multiple devices running
various generations of Intel Pro 1000 Cards and they work fine
https://man.openbsd.org/em.4
if you can check the datasheet for the brand name of your Card
and match the Intel chipset model  listed in the Manpage

Check out the em(4) man page for the capabilities
supported in the driver in OpenBSD

Suck it and see  but if i was a betting man id bet it will work

thanks

Tom Smyth

Thanks

Since the CT version uses the Intel 82574L Controller, I think it will work.

Indeed. I've got a couple of those and work just fine:

$ sysctl kern.version
kern.version=OpenBSD 6.3 (GENERIC.MP) #4: Sun Jun 17 11:22:20 CEST 2018
    [hidden email]:/usr/src/sys/arch/amd64/compile/GENERIC.MP

$ dmesg | grep ^em
em0 at pci2 dev 0 function 0 "Intel 82574L" rev 0x00: msi, address xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

Thanks Manolis, the card will be here hopefully in the next week or
two.
