PSoC 5, 3 & 1

I have developed a board using a CY8C5488AXI-LP120 psoc. I have an SPI host module set up in it to interface with a Micrel (now Microchip)

KSZ8851SNL Ethernet controller IC (which includes MAC and PHY layer functionality). At this time I only have to verify that the hardware is working. A full TCP/IP stack development will come later on. For the hardware test I believe that I only would need to return a ping packet initiated from a local network computer. Does anyone have experience with this Ethernet controller that can suggest how to set up the SPI for communication compatibility?

I have, since my first posting of the question, been able to get the psoc5 to reply to a ping request using the Micrel KSZ8851SNL Ethernet controller. Took a few iterations as this controller has a lot of feature settings that need to be configured correctly. With the ping request and the ping echo reply I have been able to verify the port's hardware design end-to-end.
