Running NDISTest

Once the Hapi.ini configuration file is set up correctly, you are ready to run the NDISTest application. To run NDISTest, you need to follow the following steps.

  1. Copy the NDISTest files to the Windows CE device.
    First, copy the Ndistst.dll and Ndtsys.dll files to the \Windows directory. Then, copy the Hapi.exe and Hapi.ini files to a separate directory, such as \NDISTest, and create a subdirectory for the test script, such as \NDISTest\Script.
  2. If you want to perform a test on two machines, you must start an NDISTest server on a remote Windows NT workstation that is connected to the Windows CE network card that is being tested through a LAN. The version of NDISTest that is run on the Windows NT workstation must be compatible with the version of NDISTest that is running on the Windows CE system. If the two versions are not compatible, failures can occur. You therefore need to make sure that you are using the Windows NT version of NDISTest that is supplied with the Windows CE DDTK.
    Note   If you want to perform stress testing, the LAN should be in use only by the Windows CE and Windows NT systems that are running the test.
  3. Run the specified test by typing the following command line in the Windows CE command shell on your Windows NT workstation:
    S Hapi -r<Directory Name>

    The field <Directory Name> must contain the name of the directory that you created in step 1. The name must include a trailing "\", as shown in the following example:

    Hapi -r\NDISTest\ scripts\nd_cli.tst

    Unlike Windows NT, Windows CE has no concept of a current directory. You must set the -r flag instead to specify the root directory that is used to access files on the Windows CE device.

    If you have a Windows CE Shell (CESH) connection between your Windows NT workstation and the Windows CE device, you can specify a directory on the Windows NT workstation to be used to access files by prefixing it with "ppsh:". The following example shows how to do this:

    Hapi -rppsh:\NDISTest\ scripts\nd_cli.tst
