If the 3C501 is connected to the ether via a DELNI the VAX has an
Interlan transceiver, you will probably have problems. I've heard
reports from a number of places that 3COM cards connected to DELNIs
can't reliably talk to a number of vendors transceivers.
(these are only *rumors*, mind you...)
The problem is supposed to be that the ethernet chip used on
the 3C501 doesn't grok heartbeat, and you can't get DELNIs
not to do heartbeat.
