The following is a forwarded message from a chap with the USN in Port Hueneme,
California, and another chap at UNICON in Santa Ana, California about TCP/UDP
sources and the related protocol suite.

As I believe this group to be the appropriate forum for answering this
question, I am herein forwarding the message sent to me. I should also
point out that neither I, Everett, or Dan currently receive this mailing
list, so replies should be sent direct (to them, not me, please).

Thank you very much.

Subject: A question about TCP / UDP sources
Date: Thu, 3 Mar 88 14:39:23 PST

[...] We have a Unix 5.2 / 5.3, Motorola 68020 (VME 10 / 1100 ),
and hold AT&T / Motorola, V68 5.3.3 Source license with RFS.

Dan Taylor, of UNICON, Santa Ana, a VME sw/hw system development shop
has examined the 5.3 sources and the CMC, Santa Barbara, sources which
Motorola resells for VME / V68 system:

We are trying hard not to reinvent the public domain wheel.

Can anyone suggest a source for the TCP and UDP utility socket source code?
