Yeah, we beasts run an ugly UNIX flavour called SysV, yacky :-).
Also the internetworking comes from Excelan as an OEM product, and those
guys wrote TCP/IP also for VMS and Sun machines. I think there are a few
problems, but there are always problems with all software in general.

I've tested the r-series commands (rsh, rcp, rlogin) to a VAX running 4.2 BSD,
and also the ftp and telnet to SUN:s and Apollo workstations. We found
*one* bug in connection with a Bridge Server and telnet (a minor one),
and this was corrected in the latest release.

Don't trust the grapevine, man...
