Request for XENIX TCP/IP Beta Sites
Interlan is currently looking for qualified beta test sites for its NP621A
Intelligent Ethernet communications processor. The processor supports
TCP/IP on-board running under the XENIX SCO V PC/AT environment. User interface
software supports the Berkeley 4.2 socket interface. Utilities include ftp,
rlogin, rsh, telnet and rcp. Interested parties should respond to:

Does it do arp? subnets? Is that both client and server for
ftp/telnet? How about routed, rwhod, rwho, ping, ICMP echo? (I think
ICMP echo should be required but SOME vendors don't provide it. Names
on request.) tcp/ip uucp (a good way to bring up mail and news
As far as I know neither CMC nor Excelan do routed, though I have
asked for it. Excelan does claim to do rwhod and tcp/ip uucp, although
I haven't tried either of them. Their ftp seems to go at about 80,000
bits per second "get"ting into /dev/null on a 6 MHz PC/AT.
Wonder of wonders, Excelan provides a real slide latch on their
interface instead of the stupid screws that 3 Com expects. It works
well with our DEC lightweight office transceiver cables.

You know, I really hate "cute" telephone numbers. They take about four
times as long to dial. I wouldn't mind as much if the companies would
provide real numbers but they always make you translate it yourself.
In California, the personals have three sections, "Women Seeking Men",
"Men Seeking Women", and "Men seeking Men".
