Can anyone tell me how i can confirm whether my network card is setup as either 10 or 100 BT, and more importantly, whether it is running at FULL or HALF duplex please ?
I have had a good browse in NMMGR and cannot find any reference whatsoever.
Many thanks in advance !
If its any use to anyone, here is the output from linkcontrol......

That there are no late collisions suggests (to me at least) that there is no duplex mismatch. Usually, when there is a duplex mismatch the side in half-duplex will report at least some late collisions.

We have checked and confirm yes its an old server - a HP3000/918RX.
The network cable is connected to the AUI port via a "Canary MTX-1070 transceiver"

I have been doing some further checking and can confirm that the transfer that is failing is from a HP 3000/939LX to a HP 3000/918RX
Can you confirm if both of these servers are restricted to 10 half duplex please ?
Our network team have been performing ping checks and are seeing the packet losses also.
