Re: Establish network and run 'ping'

Hi Tom,

thanks for that advice!
That´s really nice. But overall it says me the same: There is no driver for the Networkadapter...
And "connect" does not run successfully.

Hi Simon,

A handy trick that might help you is interrogating handles using 'dh -d -v <handle>' which gives you a lot of information about what's connected and installed and driving what. Works on all handles (drivers, devices,

in order to pass files via network (using TFTP) from/to the UEFI-Shell, I´m trying to establish a network connection.
For that I want to check it using the ping command (Ifconfig and ping does not give me any console output when calling with corresponding parameters).

Looking for drivers and devices everything looks fine to me (see below parts of it).
Running 'connect' I don't get any entry about network adapter.
So I think I have to connect the Network Adapter with the corresponding drivers. But 'connect 161' fails.

What´s wrong? Do I misunderstand anything or is there just any step missing?

The Shell I use is the shell I get with the edk2-stable201908 when just compiling the ShellPkg.
