Sorry to bang the drum loudly but... Micom-Interlan implemented
the TCP gateway under Netware with OS support from Novell.
They know Netware, we know TCP.(or kind of).
Client programs on the gateway were ported from Bsd4.3, they
look and act exactly the same. A user wishing to use TELNET goes
through the following script:
ipx /* load Netware driver in workstation*/
net3 /* load Netware redirector */
netbios /* load NETBIOS emulator */
gwattach gatewayname /*make a NETBIOS connection
between PC and server */
The server and gateway are roughly analogous to a real OS with TCP.
You log on to a file server, prepare your environment, and then
use TCP as a service. We ifconfig addresses just like UNIX, and
have an /etc/hosts file just like UNIX. In our next release we
will have domain name resolution... Hope I clarified things.
Micom - Interlan
