To check the network adapter driver and firmware versions use the Linux ethtool command. For example:

# ethtool -i eth<N>
Note: The in-tree Solarflare drivers that are supplied with Linux distributions do not fully support PTP. The in-tree driver will be version 4.0 or 4.1. For example, this is an in-tree driver that does not fully support PTP:
# ethtool -i eth<N>
sfc 4.0
