    Ok, that makes it more clear - thanks. For the record, I'm not trying to define what it is - I'm just trying to understand what it is, and why the floppy part is so prominent. I understand now.

    I understand the difference between network file systems (the re-director interface) and block devices so I'll ask the question a different way:

    Can you explain the "floppy" aspect of this? We've talked about using a block mode device driver in the past which would be backed by a raw disk image on a server somewhere. What makes this program...

    I've thought about either EMS or extended memory. EMS is probably a better idea - even the XT class machines can use it (assuming a suitable card is installed). I'll add it to the list.
  6. I have to test EPPPD again to refresh my memory...

    I have to test EPPPD again to refresh my memory but my impression of it at the time was that it did not work well under load. Especially when using an 8250 UART; there is no room for error because...

    If you are even slightly thinking about it let me know offline and we can talk about what to expect.

    I think that a lot of people undersell themselves in this type of situation. If you are...

    I never claimed to invent anything. However, being able to read, understand and follow specifications is a good skill to have. And once again, I quickly admitted that I was surprised by the...

    And for the record, this is the post where I pointed out the specific error in your code. You worked around a problem problem you didn't understand. I identified the flaw in your code.

    Read the documentation in the PDF file - there are instructions for how to collect a trace from mTCP programs.

    The redirector interface is a mixed bag. There is enough sample code out there but the interface was never formally documented by Microsoft. So it is usable but there is no one specification to...

    That's a good one, and I forgot about it previously so I'm going to add it to the list.
