We have a Ciprico Tape Master 3000 VME 9-track tape controller that
we're trying to move from a sun4 (it died) to a sun4m system.
Unfortunately, the driver we received from Ciprico many years ago only
supports the sun4 architecture. Ciprico has discontinued this item
and claims to no longer have the software, but the sales rep that I
spoke with said that there wouldn't be any problem (legally) with me
obtaining a copy from some kind soul on the net. We're currently
running SunOS 4.1.4, but will inevitably change over to Solaris at
some point so I'm interested in obtaining both drivers.
As an alternative, does anyone know of a 3rd party driver we could
purchase (yeah right, like there's a big market for 3rd party 9-track
