Applications / SSH
« on: February 24, 2021, 06:56:12 pm »
Greetings,

I am trying it again to get ssh working.. Ive given up on sshd running on arca its just not working well.  But I would like to ssh from arca to any number of computers on my network.  I can do this it seems without too much problem just minor visual stuff with TERM.  My problem is I cannot get ssh-agent to work at all, its there I just get a weird error when trying to start it...

unix_listener: cannot bind to path C:\\var\\temp/ssh-FPcXYw7bbYMq/agent.60: Too
many open files in system

I have scoured the internet for this error and while I could find people with the same error all their suggestive fixes are for linux ie 'eval' ssh-agent .. which will not work on arca... I need to get this working as none of my servers allow password authentication and while I can include the key in my ssh command I would like to be able to skip that with ssh-agent.

All help appreciate, hope you are all well.

Applications / arguments
« on: February 21, 2021, 06:17:03 am »
Greetings,

Chugging along with my arca setup I have run into another stumble...

On my linux boxes I run a bp (bink poll command) that simply looks like;

echo $1
/usr/local/sbin/binkd -p -P$1 ~/etc/config/binkd.cfg

The $1 being a fido address

so if I were type bp 1:105/10 it would poll that address using the above path to config file etc

So I corrected the path (/ to \) for os2 but it doesnt seem to like the argument $1?

Is there a different way I could do this in os2?

Applications / Absolute path?
« on: February 11, 2021, 03:50:37 am »
Greetings,

When trying to run a new try at ssh I get the following error when starting sshd

Sshd re-exec requires execution with an absolute path

I have not a clue what that means, anyone?

Applications / Cron or cron like?
« on: February 05, 2021, 12:42:35 am »
Greetings,

Now that I am getting things dialed in ( thank you to all for your help) I am wondering if there is a task scheduler or cron like utility in os2? Seems I remember something from the warp days but for the life of me can’t remember it..

Applications / Hpt path statement
« on: February 01, 2021, 08:52:53 am »
Greetings again,

I am setting up hpt husky (fidonet mail tosser) and all works fine.. except that I do not know how to put the config for husky one the path... I put all the executables in \usr\bin so can call husky from anywhere no problem. Husky requires a config file which is in C:\config\ in Linux I would just create a symlink to the config no problem, how do I get it to see the config file, I’ve put it on the path, I’ve tried set hpt=c:\config none of it works.  I can run it hpt -C c:\config\config but that’s not ideal... any suggestions?

Hope you are all well

Utilities / Terminal scrolling
« on: January 30, 2021, 11:25:38 pm »
Greetings,

This may be a dumb ? But is there a way so that I can scroll in a terminal when I want to see previous parts? Like binkd is always running but I may want to scroll back and have a look at something?

Applications / Frontdoor
« on: January 29, 2021, 04:16:56 am »
Greetings

I’m hoping to find someone familiar with frontdoor mailer.  I’ve not run it in 30 years well before we used anything besides dialup modems for our BBS. So where I’m at, I have sio running , vmodem loads and appears normal. Frontdoor loads and is able to initialize the modem with the “ok” message the init string I’m using is simply ATZ|. The problem is when I go to poll or deliver a test mail packet front door attempts to dial, the dial dialogue box pops up with the correct destination, vmodem shows no activity and frontdoor shows no error, just tries three times before quitting and resetting modem.  I know the two see each other I can connect to fd through the vmodem.  I’m guessing maybe wrong modem strings, I need something additional in fdnode.ctl? I’m kinda stuck, so if you have experience with frontdoor and or have a fdnode.ctl I can look at chime on in..

Applications / Symlink?
« on: January 19, 2021, 08:43:41 pm »
Greetings,

I apologize I’ve been asking a lot of questions lately, I really do try and seek out information on my own! So in arca can I create symlinks? The reason I ask, is for instance I installed openssh and it installed in mptn/etc/ssh but when you go to use it it’s looking in etc/ssh? So in order to get it to work one must copy everything over to etc/ssh? I guess I have two questions, the symlink and why do things install that way? I must just be missing the logic behind that, but it’s been 20 or so years since I had any os2 chops!

Thanks fo your input

Applications / Password
« on: January 16, 2021, 09:59:37 am »
Greetings,

Ok so I feel dumb asking this but I have literally searched everywhere for the answer.. during my new install of arca I set user name but never got asked for a password for said user.. I only want it so I can ssh into that user. I can ssh into machine as root with password of root (also would like to know how to change that) but would rather ssh in as my user.  I’ve tried every command line sequence to set a password that I can think of..  been at this for many hours unfortunately any help appreciated I am sure I have overlooked it somewhere..

Setup & Installation / Arca media options
« on: January 12, 2021, 08:53:02 am »
Greetings,

I want to install arca on an old Fuji laptop that I think would be a good little machine for it.  Here’s the rub, it only has a cd not dvd drive, and the bios will not see usb 1.1 ports at boot.. do I have any options that you might suggest? Can I make multiple CD’s somehow or the install media? Is there a NetBoot cd option and install from network? Maybe make a small partition on HD a make shift boot image?

Any suggestions appreciated

Regards,

Rick
