Slackware 1.1.2 talk(1) won't talk to Suns (explain talkd)

Post by Clint Ols » Sun, 06 Mar 1994 14:50:59

With Slackware 1.1.2, this seems to not work.  I cannot remember
if it used to work.

Apparently, talk for BSD 4.2/3 are not compatible.  I don't know
which the Suns have.

I get an error about some refused connection from daemon (111).
What's with the ntalkd and talkd?  They are links.  Does the file
behave differently when invoked differently?

1. `talk' to talk to Sun

Does anybody know of sources for a `talk' program that talks with SunOS?
(They use some format & port different from the one used for BSD and Linux)
