Hi,

 

Board: Freescale LayerScape LS1021E, Version: 2.0

Using SERDES1 Protocol: 112 (0x70)

 

We have loaded sdk2.0 Linux kernel (version 4.1.8-rt8) using our custom boot-loader. Board is up without any error in boot messages. eth2(which is eTSEC3 RGMII) uses PHY1 and is configured with static IP address. But I am unable to ping to/from baord. Though, I can see Rx/Tx packets and interrupt count getting incremented:

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

# ifconfig
eth1: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 192.168.16.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 0.0.0.0

Then I tried to run tcpdump to capture the packets(and wireshark on host) while I was ping the board(192.168.2.52) from another host machine(192.168.2.1):

As per above tcp dumps , It looks like board can receive the ARP packet and create correct ARP reply message. But reply never reaches the network and I don't see any ARP reply packet on wireshark(which is running on host). Meaning board can Rx the packes , but Tx is failing.(though I can't see any error message related to Tx failing and everything looks normal)

 

 

 

Below is ethtool o/p:

Also, I have attached eTSEC3 reg. settings here.

 

I have gone through NXP community discussions and verified all settings suggested related to eTSEC in previous discussions.

 

Am I missing some setting related to eTSEC, PHY or DMA configuration.?

 

Regards,

Sanjay
