We have been having a bit of a problem here with a new SCO installation.
The server was installed with plans to use a terminal server for all of the
connections to the box. After past experience with Sun/DEC/HP/IBm etc
this should all work correctly. When we tried it on the SCO box we
started getting some hangs when screens were entered.
The SCO box is running an application written with the Unify database
system. Some screens go to an SQL report definition screen. When a terminal
attached to the terminal server attempts to display this screen, the display
will stop after a few lines. This did not seem to happen with telnet
sessions from other machines (such as NT workstations). It now
seems to happen with all telnet sessions, ever since we moved the SCO
system offsite and are now connected via a router and ISDN link.
We have used a Stallion card to overcome the problem in the short term,
but really require some way to use telnet sessions as we need to
access the server from other sites across the organisation.
Some version information is: SCO OpenServer(TM) Release 5
We are currently using DEC hardware (Server, Network card, terminal server)
but we have tried a DEC PC, HP Lan adapter, and Emulex, Cisco, DEC, Vista
All produced the same result.
SCO Support has been less than fruitful.
Thanks for ANY ideas.
