I'm having trouble uucp-ing files from one host, "pooh" running sco 4.2, to
another host "tigger" running 5.0.4. These machines are connected via frame
(56k). The nic on "pooh" (transmitting) is 10mbitps. The nic on "tigger"
(receiving) is a 10/100.
from "pooh" ...
after I uucp a 2Mbyte file to tigger and run the command
uutry -x9 tigger
leads to a successful connection and data begins transmitting but then
suddenly stops and then fails entirely, sometimes with a memory fault. it
also fails if I try to send to pooh from tigger. I can successfully uucp a
2 Mbyte file from tigger to and from any other 5.0.4 host on my WAN. So I
know it's not my syntax.
My thoughts are that the data is just taking too long to reach the newer
machine, which is receiving (or attempting to) at 100mbitps, and timing out.
Is this a likely explanation? If not likely, is it possible? I'm at a
stand still now and I NEED this data! If I can't get it by uucp, I can't
get it by uucp. And I'll have to get it another way. I just don't
understand why uucp isn't working!!!
Please enlighten me, oh great ones.
