I am unable turn off rx and tx checksum on VMware ESX 3.0 service
console (based on RHEL 3) and Arch Linux (now Ark) with ethtool.
#ethtool -K vmnic0 tx off rx off
Cannot set device rx csum settings: Function not implemented
(vmnic0 is a broadcom nic here)
On Arch Linux .8
#ethtool -K eth0 tx off rx off
Cannot set device rx csum settings: Operation not supported.
(eth0 is an AMD PCnet32 nic )
Could somebody explain me why am I getting this? Would it be because the
NICs don't support it? Any other way to achieve this?
