Infiniband implementation

I am currently trying to set up an Infiniband protocol on a Virtex 2 Pro.
Therefore I use the dedicated multi gigabit transceivers (Rocket I/O s). My
problem is that after finishing the link layer and testing the
implementation in serial loopback mode I always get the error message from
my testbench program that the synchronization gets lost.
I already worked on several "standard" implementations and I often
encountered false descriptions in the standard paper. Since the
implementation is exactly based on the "Infiniband Architecture
Specification Release 1.1" I wonder if there is already a mistake in the
description? Or maybe there is another point that is not obvious I just
I would like to share my experience and knowledge with other developers who
are also familiar with the Infiniband protocoll and its implementation to
solve my problem. Any help is appreciated.
