The talk and ytalk program in my linux machines won't connect to the
talk daemon in my friends accounts in Solaris and AIX. The talk program
keep waiting for "invitation", and ytalk just say that there is no talk
daemon on the destination machine. Even if my friends initiate the talk,
I cannot talk back, although I received the invitation to talk to them.
I guess this is apparent from the man page of talk:
The version of talk(1) released with 4.3BSD uses a protocol that is
incompatible with the protocol used in the version released with 4.2BSD
(SunOS/Solaris uses this old protocol).
That's probably the reason with the AIX, and with ytalk, too.
Well, is there any talk / ytalk for Linux that can talk "the old ways"
to a Solaris or AIX machines?
