    "Classic" is obsolete - nothing uses it unless you find a very vintage FTP server. (The FTP server in NCSA Telnet requires it.) Also, forget the firewall thing, except where it might be changing...

    So I don't have the problem debugged yet, but I don't think it is a problem with the FTP client.

    To recap:

    Getting a file from Trixter's site (ftp.oldskool.org) doesn't work; it starts and...

    Try using "XFERMODE PORT" before your next file transfer.

    Passive mode is preferred and it really shouldn't make a difference. But for some reason the mTCP FTP client is having trouble talking to...

    .EML - nice, human readable text. The filenames are just sequence numbers.

    Importing old messages

    Shawn provided me with a Zip file of the Yahoo! group that somebody scraped.

    The messages are in "email" format, so they look like full emails with all of the headers. vBulletin has an API for...

    That's actually a good reminder for me. There has been enough time, I'll open it up right now.

    Just use IRQ 3 or 4. Unless there is something that actively sets up the interrupt for the UARTs that normally use those interrupts, it will work fine.

    (For example, if you are sharing IRQ 3 with...

    Welcome Grid users!

    Hello Grid Systems users!

    Enjoy this new area of the forum just for you! Assuming this works out we'll figure out a way to post the original Yahoo! groups messages in a read-only format, or...

    If your signature gets obnoxious we will let you know.

    Short is good. A link is fine too.

    Just a gentle reminder ...

    The event is five months away. That seems like a long time but we all know how quickly that will pass.

    AUI adapters can be had for much less than $25 on eBay - I would keep looking.

    I've gotten them as low as $2 each, although that is unusual. $10 + shipping would be a reasonable price, or just go...

    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:

    If ethflop is providing a block device for DOS to...

    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.
  21. 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...
