13.3 ISIM - Internal Error: The point to point Ethernet cosimulation proxy is not installed properly.

Description

When trying to run Hardware Co-simulation (HW Cosim) I am receiving the following error:

Internal Error: The point to point Ethernet cosimulation proxy is not installed properly.
Please run /ede/ise-ds_13.2_a/ISE_DS/ISE/sysgen/bin/lin64/install_pcap_proxy under the root account.

Solution

On Linux machines when ISE is installed, customers no prompt is received to install the PCAP drivers which are necessary for HW Cosim.

Because the drivers must be installed in a system area, you will need to have root/sudo privileges to install for Linux.

This is not specifically a Hardware Cosim requirement, This is a general Linux requirement.


Once you have root access you can install the drivers. Root access is not required to run Cosim afterwards.

A CR has been filed so that the Linux install of ISE will prompt users to install PCAP drivers under root access.
