DIP Problems...

Post by Len Kawamo » Sat, 30 Jul 1994 17:57:27

Hey all, I'm in need of some expert advice here.  I can run Seyon in X Windows
fine -- I can get my modem working and I can use my Packet/6 which is a PAD
(Packet Assembler/Dissambler) that allows multiple terminals to share a single
ISDN BRI (Basic Rate Interface) kinda like a modem, but not...

Anyways, I can also use DIP to talk to my modem, but I can't seem to get it to
work with my Packet/6.  Now theoretically, should I not be able to use DIP with
my Packet/6 just as if I was using Seyon?? *shrug* In seyon, I have the follow-
ing choices enabled in my SET box: BS->DEL, Meta->ESC, XON/XOFF, AutoZmodem

I seem to remember having my DIP work fine with my Packet/6 on an earlier
version or something... has there been any other known instances where the
newer DIP (3.3.7-uri) has broken anybody-else's setup?

Thanx in advance,

Len Kawamoto

1. DIP problem: DIP creates bad lock file

It appears DIP 3.3.7 has a bug.  It creates a lock file in
/var/spool/uucp that has the wrong PID.  It should be the
PID of 'dip' but instead it puts a PID usually 1 less
than the dip PID.


dip PID = 7146
LCK..cua0 contains 7145

This will cause uucico to delete the lock file thinking it
is stale.   Then uucico can come in and interfere with the
SLIP connection.
To make things worse, uugetty would then try to reinitialize
the line after uucico finished ;-(

Is this fixed on a newer version of DIP ?
