Howdy,

I have been using this package under AIX for over a year and a half.  It 
was first ported to run under AIX 3.1.5.  When AIX 3.2 was released, it was 
still running but had a few problems.  I was no longer able to use 
putfiles/getfiles from the Unix side.  Also, 8 bit mode was a no go.  I sat 
down a few weeks ago and took a harder look at the Unix source and made a 
few changes to the way sockets are set up and used.  Voila!  Things worked 
much better and the 8 bit code is going.  I compiled/linked the files using
the native AIX compiler. Use the files CLEAN and MAKE to unbuild/build the
files if you choose to redo anything. You must use the CFLAGS/LDFLAGS
settings I included to get this to work right on AIX. Maybe someday I'll do
a proper port to remove the BSD'isms in the code, but for now I am not that
interested (as long as it works).

I have this directory in my user home directory (~robtu/amiga/dnet/unix) on 
the AIX box I connect to.  I point $DNETDIR to a directory $HOME/.dnet. 
I put the dnet.servers file in that directory.  I edited dnet.servers to
use full pathnames to the files in the .../dnet/unix directory. I have 
 .../unix/bin in my PATH so I can find the dnet executables.  

Put the files where you want and adjust for your account.  It has worked 
like a champ.  I dial into my system through a terminal server, use rlogin 
to connect to my AIX account and then run dnet -m0 from there.  

On the Amiga side, I am using ToolManager 2.0 and a AREXX script to fire
up dnet. The command line I am using is (in arexx):

	'dnet:amiga/bin/dnet' '-P2' '-Z0' '-X' '-8' '-b19200' '-B19200' '-m0'

The Amiga dnet executables are ones I downloaded eons ago and are still 
faithful even since 2.04 and a 68030 came to my system.  Wow!  I have a USR 
Dual Standard modem and I usually connect to a slower Intel modem at 9600 
baud.  I use RTS/CTS hand shaking between my Amiga 500 and the HST.  

Please let me know if find this distribution useful or have any questions
about how to use it.  You may contact me at the following address:

Known problems:

1. SNFS/NF0: is not working. The connection is made but then it hangs.
I have a ton of DEBUG stuff in snfs.c right now. Just ignore it. I hope to
have time to fix it...

2. Sometimes with 4 or more niftyterms running, the whole thing hangs and I
have to quitdnet/startdnet to get it going again. My suggestion is to stick
to 2 windows.

3. File transfers hog the modem line when in progress. This may be a
feature. Also, you get better performance if you initiate file transfers
from the Amiga side. I think the block size is 4096 when you do it this way
versus 1024 when initiated from Unix/AIX.

4. There is a bug in AIX that sometimes causes your login session to get
swapped with someone else's. Your prompt changes and when you type 'id' or
'who' you are no longer you! My feeling is this a PTY/socket bug since we
see it with X windows xterm from time to time to. Please be nice and logout
when this happens (if it happens). You are infringing on someone else's
privacy. This problem has been reported to IBM. I hope they fix it soon!
