Utilities / Re: K File Wizard
« on: May 16, 2024, 03:42:48 pm »
I have downloaded from

Once I placed openssl.exe and all the dll files from that package into the KFileWizard directory, the program starts and sees the local drive.

But if I attempt to connect to my local SFTPD (Peter Moylan's SFTPServer) kfw.exe exits with a TRAP.

This is an excerpt from the server log

The trap file is attached.

I have installed openssl and openssl-libs from netlabs. I hope that does not interfere.

Utilities / K File Wizard

K File Wizard is a file manager for OS/2 integrating file operations of both the local and the remote support FTP and SFTP. K File Wizard was written by KO Myung-Hun.

I downloaded it from HobbesArchive, but when I try to run it, I get the following error:

SYS0002: The system cannot find the file specified. "KCRYPTO"

Does anyone know where kcrypto.dll can be found?

I visited him at his shop a few years ago and sold him an eComStation computer. He seemed very interested in Parallel ports. He makes Automated Test Equipment, but he didn't reveal much about his customers.

I don't know what desktop Ubuntu LTS uses.

Interestingly, /bin/startx already has unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS

This must be the vino server. I didn't install anything, I just enabled VNC in settings. This is Ubuntu LTS 22.04.

So far, I'm using the latest one, VNC by Andrey Vasilkin

Progress: Ubuntu was not saving my password. I was able to log in, but each time I start Ubuntu, I need to set the VNC password. Connection only works from iOS.

Our VNC client is able to authenticate and connect, but the display is the wrong size and always just a black screen.

I'm trying to use our VNC to connect to Ubuntu LTS.

It looks like it's trying to work, but I can never get a password accepted.

Has anyone gotten this to work?

The last Personal Communications for OS/2 version was 4.3.2

There are several builds out; I think the last might have been August, 2001

The serial device drivers, USB, IBMCOM and COM all work fine in any position. All the position in Config.Sys does is determine which com port COM1, COM2, etc. is assigned to which device.

RMVIEW is voluntary, so if a device driver doesn't participate, RMVIEW will not show it.

BASEDEV statements are processed in an earlier pass. We've presented the process at Warpstock several times. They have to be correct, but their order compared to DEVICE= statements is not relevant.

On my system, I made sure that USBCOM.SYS was the first device= statement. That ensures that the USB com port comes before all the other com ports.

IBM File and Print services also shares COM ports, so if you install that, it will grab a com port.

I didn't bother installing COM.SYS, apparently.

The system installs COM ports at boot time while parsing the Config.Sys. The COM port number depends on the ordering of the statements in Config.Sys, and which of them claims a serial port. (Some might not be obvious)

I'm not sure how many COM ports OS/2 supports. Some say 99, some say 255.

In the time since I last posted, both ends of the POTS line have ended service. AT&T has applied for a permit to stop providing POTS to anyone.

Setup & Installation / Re: Install Arca OS via USB stick

If all you have is the .ISO, then burn a DVD and boot a computer from it. Once booted, you can go to the /AOSBOOT directory and execute AOSBOOT <drive letter of USB stick> <ISO filename>.

If you have an OS/2 computer running, you can skip the DVD part.

You can just run the NetDrive installer on ArcaOS, and it will replace the Arca Noae version with the full version. It even keeps your NetDrive settings the same.

It's also not true the IBM does nothing. They have contracted with Arca Noae to supply an OS/2-compatible operating system. Downloading MCP is also a violation of their license.

Should naming the sites where you can download pirated copies should banned on OS/2 World?
