1. Arnet clusterports running on Frame Relay
I think I mentioned I was going to try this in a past posting.
A client needed to set up another office in a nearby (50 miles)
city. It's a smaller community than Orlando - and we crossed
more than one LATA. Costs on leased 9.6K or 56K digital were
Finding that Frame Relay was $330 a month prompted us to
investigate that to it's fullest.
The client currently has 144 serial ports a mix of 2/1 for
termianls/printer - all Arnet Clusteports.
WIth the help of Milton Cartwright at Arnet - we put three up
on 56K leased lines remotely over the past year.
When we asked about FR - everyone said 'it should work but we
having tried it'
Got help from Scott Ferrero (Arnet tech support in Nashville).
Wound up with a 4 person conference call betwen Milton, the
local phone provider, myself, and a tech at Black Box.
Everyone agreed "It should work". First try last week was not
nice. Even caused the system to stop seeing one Arnet
Today - after chaning a few parameters (this was my very first
experience with FR) - we got the two routers interconnect - one
to the Unix box - the other to a Clusterport - and everything
is working smoothy. Since that works it should work on the
Telco lines - and I'll get the DCLI nubmers and some other info
tomorrow and we'll bring it up next week. If there are
problems I'll let you know how we solved them.
I hadn't seen anything like this posted here - so I thought I
pass on the hints. Currently the unit we are using is a Black
Boxk 741A. I don't know who OEM's it for them - but we will
also be looking at other providers solutions. We just told the
system it was a pure bit stream with no protocols and to
Once I figure out the proper parameters it just flew.
My thanks to the great tech support people at Arnet in
Nashville - Milton Cartwright, Scott Ferrero, the Wiz up there
(though not in tech support) Robert Lipe, and Ken Kriblez
(Kribnez) whose really in sales - but is an ex-recording
engineer at one of the larger Nashville studios. Since
that's my background too - he HAS to be good :-)
I've also had some email response to my plea for recomendations
on remote terminal servers. After today - and being told
about 2 more places that get brought up in the next 3-4 months
- I see that the remote terminal adapters aren't going to cut
it any longer. The 12-slot motherboards are too expensive -
when one network slot will do it.
Anyone have any favorite terminal servers ?
