I have tried to get some information on PicLan but have had limited success.
Can anyone help with these queries. Also if anyone has more than 1 Pick machine
linked together I would be most interested in their experiences.
We currently are using the computer clinic DAT devices on AP/Native 5.2.6 without
any problems and are now looking to upgrade our systems to AP/PRO and use the
ALL FOR ONE device driver.
We are using a DPT SCSI hard disk controller - will the software work with it?
How long before it becomes available? We are currently stuck with our development
plans waiting for this device driver. We cannot update our last machine from R83
to AP because the monolith 8000i cards don't work with AP and are going to network
instead to save buying I/O cards. We intend on using a network with a central hub
to allow access of the dumb terminals to each machine.
We currently are using 4 Pick machines and will be linking them all together using
PicLan. How can we print from one machine to a printer connected to another machine?
Can we just redirect the output by using SP-ASSIGN?
We also have a PERTEC 1/2" tape drive and would like all machines to have access
without having to go through switches. Our current thought on this is to create a
work file and then transfer across PicLan to a 'tape server' and then transfer to tape.
Is this the only way we will be able to make use of the tape drive.
(we currently use Toby Kraft device driver to access the tape).
If the Tape server was a DOS machine could we read/write a DOS file directly one
item or 1 block at a time?
