Setup & Installation / Re: Trying to solve server crash

Thanks people.
I'll give those suggestions a try over the weekend as that will take a while.

Does anyone have any idea why that entry is repeated in the

Setup & Installation / Trying to solve server crash

My server has recently been having stability issues. It locks solid and leaves little indication as to what is going on.
In trying to track the problem down I noticed the following error repeated in my

It has been a while since I looked at this stuff; any ideas?


Any idea where I can find

Hobbes shows nothing and an Internet search shows that file, but it is associated with Windows not OS/2.

Hello, everyone.

I have been running ANPM 1.0.2 without any issues for a while now.

I recently installed version 1.0.4; the installing went smoothly, yet when I attempted to run it I received a pop-up window with the following error, (this from the error.log):

Line 15 of Init in yumie.VRM:
+++     Call rwIniLoadFuncs;
*** Error 43 Routine not found
Line 47 of Main in yumie.VRM:
+++   Call Init;

Any ideas as to what could be causing this and how to fix it?

Version 2.?

I believe my version is 1.71.

nFTP is my main FTP program.

I will have to take a look at that, though I do not have the means to compile it.

OK. I guess that somehow I got dropped from his mailings lists.

I vaguely recall something Peter said months back about having trouble with this old mailing list files.

I believe that I will have to resubscribe.

Are you asking what specifically needs updating?

The interface for one; getting the window size/position to stick from session to session for two, etc.

With respect to me programming, I thought I had made it clear; I gave it up long ago; the skills I once had have long since faded and I'd rather push bamboo shoots under my nails than to take it up again.

But not every programmer, (past or present), feels the same way. But some people have to have things spelled out and can't extrapolate or intuit... I can live with people like that; no problem.

I can only think positively and ponder that maybe others can have the same level of tolerance for people in general and for their particular characteristics too.

So, I came across the code and thought someone would like it. If not, then status quo reigns.

In fact, now that I look at it, I haven't received a message from either his Weasel or his FTP Server mailing lists since late last year.

Is he still around?

Internet / Moylan's FTP site - trouble?

I have been trying to connect to Peter Moylan's FTP site using nFTP.

While I can ping and "connect" to the site no data is returned, the connection is broken, 120 seconds later a retry is attempted.

I tried this using Firefox and it cannot connect either; Can anyone connect to this site: or

Thanks for the heads-up, Eugene.

Having said that, I am surprised that no one has updated it.

Obviously a lack of interest. Oh, well.

Internet / nFTP Source Code
« on: June 07, 2018, 02:02:00 pm »
Many years ago when the authors of nFTP(PM) were in the process of ending the development of this great program and I had the foresight to ask if they would pass along the source code.

Lo and behold, they were gracious enough to send me a copy.

At the time I was still into programming, (I can't stand it, gave it up and never speak of it), but I never did do anything with it.

I thought that I had lost it in a hard disk crash many years ago, but I just found a copy.

I have no idea if the source code for this is out there already, (if so, I know nothing about it), but if any developer/programmer here would like to do something with this source code send me a PM/E-mail address and I'll pass it along.

That's a good place for me to start Lars, but I have no use for sound on the machine in question so I would otherwise leave it off my machine especially given how tight usable memory has become with our favourite OS. 8)

I will REM out the other lines first and see how that works.

Utilities / Links?

I am surprised that there is not a forum here dedicated to WPS/Desktop/PM issues, as such, I'll post this topic here. Maybe Martin might consider adding one, (did I overlook it?).

Of course, I know all about object shadows et all, but is there an OS/2 equivalent to *nix links? Shadows can come and go and might not necessarily survive a desktop restore. I would like something more permanent.

Any ideas?

I haven't actually narrowed it down yet, Dariusz. I fixed my maintenance partition, (on the same machine), reworked the Config.sys for it, mixing the main partition file with that one, but leaving in some differences. Then I booted it to see if any version of Firefox worked with it and they all did.

So, I started by just copying some of the MMOS2 entries across to the main partition Config.sys, got lucky first go, and left it at that for now. I will narrow it down when I get the time, but in the meantime here are the entries that I added;

Code: [Select]
DEVICE=C:\MMOS2\ssmdd.sys /S:64 /P:64 /H:256 /Q:1024 /E:1024
SET MMSTREAM=/S:64 /P:64 /H:256 /Q:1024 /E:1024

I have yet to even determine if they are all relevant to my main install or which one made the difference. But I will post which one did the job when I do find out.

Hello again.

For those who have been following this thread I am writing this message from my server machine utilizing the latest version of Firefox; problem found!

It turns out some missing MMOS2 lines in my CONFIG.SYS was the culprit. Given that I do not use sound or have it installed on this system, that's interesting. I had the MMOS2 lines in the path statements, but apparently that is not enough. But whatever the case maybe, I'm just glad to have driven a stake through the heart of the last problem on this system.

Anyway, now if someone bumps into this problem they will have this to go on.

Thanks for everyone who contributed... and "yes" all versions of Firefox old and new now work.
