Hello,

I've read the article "Intel® Sideband Technology" (http://download.intel.com/design/network/applnots/321786.pdf http://download.intel.com/design/network/applnots/321786.pdf)

There's one point that i coul'd not understand.

If i would like to exchange information between my host OS to the MC chip, for local synchronisation and manegment, how could i do is?

As far as i understand the above document i have no access to the MC nor the NC through the host os \ driver...

Am i right?

Thanks in advance

Eric J.

Wow, good to know somebody actually reads the docs I write an publish :-)

What you are seeking does not yet exist - however it is coming soon. I blogged about it a while back:
