Networking / Re: NetDrive traps - since latest LIBCX drop...
« on: April 30, 2018, 03:52:06 pm »
Same here, Darius, nary a problem with Netdrive...

nor any issues with anything for that matter, with the last Libc installed on two machines, using ANPM to install.

If I recall correctly the "-" is a carry over from an earlier version and if I'm not mistaken it works either way with the newer versions.

There's something similar with hopcount too I believe. I could check into it for the details, but that fact that it works at all means it must be accepting the parameters.

I'll look into it just to be clear.

Networking / Routing Issues?
« on: April 20, 2018, 04:41:49 pm »
I have a small problem with routing... maybe.... maybe not.

I have two machines; one is my work machine with one NIC and the other is a server/gateway with two NICS; one connecting to the work machine and the other NIC which has IJFirewall and connects to a modem which has the Internet line.

The work machine has the IP address 192.168.0.1 and the server has 192.168.0.2 for the LAN and 192.168.2.9 for the line to the modem.
The modem's IP address is 192.168.2.1

I have had this setup working fine for years. But there is one nagging problem; I cannot CMD ping *.*.2.1 from the work machine nor any other outside address either using the domain name or the IP address for a destination.

Now get this; PMPing has no problem pinging anywhere -inside or outside- on the work machine. The cmd ping will work fine for anything on the LAN, just not outside.

The server has no issues pinging anything in anyway or to anywhere.

I am not sure that it is relevant in this case, but the following is the setup.cmd for the work machine, and after that, for the server;

Code: [Select]
inetcfg -s all
route -fh
arp -f
ifconfig lo 127.0.0.1
ifconfig lan0 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 metric 0 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan0
REM ifconfig lan1
REM ifconfig lan2
REM ifconfig lan3
REM ifconfig lan4
REM ifconfig lan5
REM ifconfig lan6
REM ifconfig lan7
REM ifconfig sl0
route add default 192.168.0.2 -hopcount 0
route add net 192.168 192.168.0.2 -hopcount 0
ipgate off

Server setup.cmd:

Code: [Select]
inetcfg -s all
route -fh
arp -f
ifconfig lo 127.0.0.1
ifconfig lan0 192.168.2.9 netmask 255.255.255.0 metric 0 mtu 1500
ifconfig lan1 192.168.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan2 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan3 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan4 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan5 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan6 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan7 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig sl0
route add default 192.168.2.1 -hopcount 0
route add -net 192.168 192.168.2.1 -hopcount 0
ipgate on

Simple enough, yet not so simple.

Setup & Installation / Re: RAM disk and temp folders...what else?
« on: April 19, 2018, 08:37:43 pm »
Interesting, Andyy

With that in mind, I won't bother with HPFS386.
While it appears to have some performance increases over HPFS it's not worth the hassel for a RAM disk.

I'll add your comments to my CONFIG.SYS.

Thanks for that heads-up.

Hi Ben

My config.sys entry is a simple one; "IFS=Y:\IMB386FS\HPFS386.IFS /A:R" where "Y:" is the boot drive and "R" is the RAMDisk.



Is the "Y:\IMB386FS\" above a copy'n'paste typo?

Typo unfortunately.

I tried it on two different installations on two different machines with the same error.

I vaguely recall from the distant past, that HPFS386.IFS wouldn't load without some sort of memory restrictions... virtualmemorylimit adjustment or something like that. But I have that setting tweaked for other programs and I have no intention of changing it..

I take it that file system drivers, (*.IFS), can be loaded from anywhere not  just from config.sys path statements in the libpath, path dpath?

I guess that I have no choice but to use the basic HPFS.

I may end up with no choice.

HPFS386 should work though maybe it doesn't work on newer software.

The RAMDisk is working fine otherwise as far as I can test it.

I am trying to get the HPFS386.IFS driver loaded, to get the QSINIT Ramdisk to work, but for some reason I get the following error:

"The file Y:\IBM386FS\HPFS386.IFS specified in the IFS statement on line 26 of the config.sys file does not contain a valid device driver or file system driver. Line 26 is ignored"

My config.sys entry is a simple one; "IFS=Y:\IMB386FS\HPFS386.IFS /A:R" where "Y:" is the boot drive and "R" is the RAMDisk.

I am using the default settings for HPFS386.INI and I put HPFS386.DLL in the OS2\DLL folder, (should it be needed)... does it require a config.sys entry? There is nothing in the instructions saying that it does.

Have I overlooded something obvious?

I have been using RAMFS.IFS for years. I have not have any problems that I could ever associate with it. However, if the RAMDISK that comes with QSINIT uses a smaller memory footprint then I have no trouble giving it a go, especially in these days of dwindling usable OS/2 memory.

I have an old version of QSINIT on a maintenance partition  that I can use for testing and I shall do that when I get the time.

Thanks for the heads-up.

I am just wondering if I have this straight; is the RAMDISK.exe that comes with the RAMIFS the same RAMDISK.exe that comes with ArcOS?

There seems to be some debate.

Right now I'm using RAMIFS loaded via CONFIG.SYS but if there is something better or issues with the former...

I just downloaded it again on a different machine altogether using the link from Rolf, and it still gives me the November 2017 version when installed on different machine.

Can someone who has the correct version, (April 2018), change the name of it slightly and make it available to me in a message or whatever?

The only conclusion is that tmy ISP is caching the old file. Strange though, I haven't seen anything like that in years... with an ISP that is.

Just to be clear, I have downloaded that file on two different OS/2 machines and one Windows machine using different browsers, always with the same problem.

The links are identical, Ivan.

Maybe my ISP is caching the file.

I downloaded it again, Rolf and it still shows Nov. 2017.

I read the BS_info.txt and it says on the very first line; "BS_Info  v2.1 beta (04.Nov.2017)"; cut and pasted.

Thanks Rolf.

I downloaded it and gave it a try; same problem hanging as before on cups with no error code created.

 However... when I looked at the title/version it reported November of last year, (2017), not April of 2018.

Was there an error in the link?

Will do.

OK, thx, Pete.

If such an error  file was generated it was not put into the BS Info folder.

I will give the new one a try.

Time passes...

I installed 2.1b and tried it with the same results; it hangs on cups detection.
