Gopher server?
« on: June 01, 2017, 02:30:01 am »
Hello all,

Can anyone recommend an OS/2 gopher server other than the one that came with OS/2 back in 1994/1995?

Thanks,
Dean.

Server or client? The old client works pretty if you have an older OS/2 to get it from along with a couple of DLLs it needs.
Floodgap seems to be the most used Gopher site, they recommend Firefox + the overbite extensionhttp://gopher.floodgap.com/overbite/. (Works with SeaMonkey too)
Their Gopher server lists most Gopher software but a server would probably need to be ported.

There's only GoServe. The latest version 2.52 (http://www.tavi.co.uk/os2pages/ews/goserv.zip) supports gopher and http.

Hi Dean,

Goserv/SRE-http

GoServe Webserver for OS/2 is a multi-purpose server for OS/2 and Windows which supports both the World Wide Web (HTTP) and the Gopher protocols. IBM EWS.

Hmm, http://www2.hursley.ibm.com/goserve/ is gone so try http://www.os2site.com/sw/internet/sre/
Cheers
