Looking for SLIP for RS/6000

Looking for SLIP for RS/6000

Post by Peter A. Cast » Sun, 20 Jan 1991 09:37:13

Hi RS/6000 people,
        I hope someone can help me.  I'm looking for SLIP (Serial Link/IP)
for the RS/6000.  Does anyone know where such a thing can be found ?
For that matter, if not the RS/6000 version, any generic version will do.
I'll port it myself.  Thanks in advance for any info.

Yes... It is supplied with the basic TCP/IP package that comes with the
bosnet.obj lpp.

1. RS/6000 error msgs (Was: Re: RS/6000 survey - will post summary)

[LANG=En_US]  ksh: kjj: 0403-016 Cannot find or open the file.
[LANG=C]      ksh: kjj: cannot open

[LANG=En_US]  0506-764 ln: /tmp: Cannot use this command with a directory.
[LANG=C]      ln : </tmp> directory

 Canonicalizing all the error msgs by assigning them numbers and more
verbose explanations isn't such a bad idea, but it will hardly make
the system usable by secretaries. It does nothing to prevent an
accidental "rm *" or hide the details of the filesystem from the user.
Secretaries will run Motif and shrink-wrapped applications in
which case they will probably never [want to] use Unix shells. And they
shouldn't need to.
 The big gain here will be made by IBM SEs who will now be able to
look up customers' complaints by the error number.

    I haven't heard about IBM shipping *anything* on a Powerstation
yet. You can buy SunOS 4.1 *today* which is B2 certified.
And AT&T is advertising System V/MLS which is B1
certified -- I don't know if it's shipping yet.
    If security is important to you, you sure don't want to go with
a measly C2 rated system.
