Networking / ipgate on - why does it not work?
« on: December 10, 2016, 12:58:28 pm »
I ever thought it's enough to set ipgate on and OS/2 would route TCP/IP trafic from one interface to the other. I've now a system set up with 2 Intel NICs. One is setup to 10.0.0.x net the other is From another machine in the 192.168.1.x net which has setup default gateway to I wanted to ping the host But the machine with the two NICs does not route between the 2 nets.

Can someone enlighten me what's wrong?

I've running injoy since many years. But since a few days it blocks all traffic when I do not disable 'Dynamic Firewall Features'. Even pings to my ADSL router. I'm a security level 5 and have set in custom settings ICMP 'Allow All ICMP Types'. Since years the same. But this should not be related anyway as the firewall now since a few days behaves like that.

I think I've read somewhere the Dynamic Features should be enabled. Unfortunately I do not find much about in the documentation.

Any clues?

Applications / netlabs rpm cups.i686 1:1.4.8-3.oc00
« on: January 22, 2016, 06:47:44 pm »
Just test Silvans cups version from netlabs rpm repository. This is the first cups version which seems to get printing right with qpdfview. All older versions including Pauls 2.x builds did not work properly when printing some pages from bigger pdfs. While the first pages of the document usually did work, some pages with higher numbers only produced errors here. F.i. page 38 from 25MB big pdf with 182 pages did not work with other cups version.

With the new rpm packed version from Silvan I've successfully printed now the pages of the previous failing pdf. Even page 1187 from 41MB big pdf on my slpr connected PS printer works.

Many thanks to Silvan / bww for the continuing development.

Applications / VBOX does not start anymore
« on: November 12, 2015, 09:52:09 am »
After a crash of my eCS host system VBOX no longer starts. It displays the command lline window with
Code: [Select]
VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 1.6.1_OSE
(C) 2005-2008 Sun Microsystems, Inc.
All rights reserved.

Waiting for the remote session to open...
but nothing happens. Usually at this time it should start to load the save image.

VirtualBox.exe from command line does nothing too. It immediately returns without popuplog.os2 entry or any other trap message.

I even tried to read back the xml configuration in /home/default/.VirtualBox but does not help.

Any hint to get my saved sessions running again?

Networking / Codepage problem with NAS
« on: November 01, 2015, 12:11:49 pm »
I can connect to my sons NAS (guess it runs some sort of Linux) via FTP and SAMBA. But I've problems with special characters. Using netdrive ftp plugin I've to select 1208 UTF-8 which seems correct to me. Now I see a the character in picture CodepageProblem1.png correct.

But another character displays wrong see CodepageProblem3.png.

I can not set any codepage to display this on correct.

Wenn using netdrives samba plugin the first character displays correct. But the second character displays wrong too. I do not see any setting for samba to switch codepages. But samba shows this ´ different. See CodepageProblem2.png

Needless to say looking from Windoze to this samba share both special characters displays correct. See CodepageProblem4.png

Is our UTF-8 not the same as the Win and Linux one?

Another thing I noticed - using Seamonkey to connect to the NAS via ftp I can not find any codepage to display the second character, the ´, correct. Neither on eCS nor on Win. Seems to be a strange definition of ´ character which only Win can decode correct. Any hint to solve this?

Applications / Which program to use for ripping audio CDs to flac?
« on: August 30, 2015, 11:19:42 am »
Unfortunately jRipper packed by Ronald ( does not work here. It seems to do exactly what I need. Simple front end, freedb, ripping into folder. Problem is it only rippes the first track of a CD. After that it hangs. Cancel button does not work too. Seems jRipper could not start the cdda2wav again for the second track and so waits endless. No difference between the java1.41 and java1.6 version.

Does jRipper work for anyone of you?

Which program do you use to rip CDs to flac?

Networking / 3Com 3C905 - driver which works with high IRQs?
« on: March 14, 2015, 11:33:52 am »
The EL90X.OS2 I've with eCS2.2 can not handle IRQ17. Anyone knows if there exist a driver for this card which can work with high IRQs?

In fact I got the driver loading and working with the debug kernel and manually changing registers at the point where the driver traps. But I do not want to patch registers every reboot :)

Applications / Audacity with Odin? Other usable Audio wav (mp3) Editor?

Someone running any version of audacity? I tried with Odin but no success.

Setup & Installation / How to get ride of HPFS386
« on: August 24, 2014, 06:24:08 pm »
I've used HPFS386 in the past. But now my boot partition is JFS since a long time and the only HPFS partition is one for maintenance boot.

I was in the impression I only have to change in config.sys -
Code: [Select]
IFS=m:\IBM386FS\HPFS386.IFS /A:*
Code: [Select]

But if I reboot I get strange errors. First in the middle of the screen between other drivers saying something there is not enough memory. Think it's after loading sddhelp.sys. After hitting Enter
Code: [Select]
SYS0613: Not enough memory is available for....and after hitting Enter again a Trap 000e.

Surely HPFS386 cache needs a lot more memory than the 2MB of HPFS. And even with HPFS386 I've >200MB shared memory left. So do not understand the complains about memory.

Any help?

Networking / Injoy logging
« on: July 04, 2014, 09:06:01 pm »
I've a user filter like this -
Code: [Select]
Comment = "verhindere alles",
Source = "",
Direction = Outgoing,
        Log-Severity = None,
Log-Control = Disabled
which blocks connections from this device to the internet. But now the Injoy GUI 'Dropped Packets' and 'Rejected Connections' windows are full of log messages from this client. Can I prevent logging output of this rule? 'Log-Control = Disabled' does not help.

I'm glad that Injoy drops packets from this client but as the window is full of these messages the important ones are hard to find now.

Networking / IP connections with 'false' IP address - daytime.exe?
« on: May 17, 2014, 12:15:35 pm »
My Injoy firewall constantly logs IP connections with non existent IP addresses. Moreover the false addresses changes randomly. I think I've iptraced it down once being nntp time requests. But not sure anymore.

Anyone else sees such things? Is it true that the eCS included M:\ECS\SYSTEM\TIMESET\daytime\daytime.exe is the root of such request? It is started automatically with eCS2.1DE here.

The logged IP addresses are something like - 

My IP net is 192.168.1.x (netmask so these IP addresses should never be routed through. Guess these are UDP packets or something else and only the firewall thinks these are IP addresses. But need help from more experienced users here. Thx.

Internet / Most stable Apache, php, mysql...
« on: February 05, 2014, 04:03:15 pm »
I remember a thread where I think Martin tested different Apache builds from Paul but can not find it anymore. So here's my question what build version and combination of different packages is considered the most stable, without memory leaks....

I want to upgrading my current Apache, php, mysql, squid installation and want to know if others have seen problems or not with the latest what is available at Pauls site.

Another question - is there a current installation package like LAMP or AMPOS2? Or installation instructions for current Apache, php, mysql.... for eCS? I found Jürgens instructions (in German) very useful but it's a little bit outdated.

Programming / Compiling KON
« on: January 29, 2014, 01:11:36 pm »
Has someone successfully compiled the sources from github? I tried it once and it seems there are some files missing.

This was a few months ago and I didn't find time to investigate further. So wanted to note my findings here. Maybe someone else has more success.

Setup & Installation / Tweaking eCS for low memory system
« on: January 02, 2014, 02:16:35 pm »
As low memory is no problem with standard hardware for eCS since years I forgot how to tweak OS/2 - eCS for such situations. I've searched a while but did not get very much information except the obvious ones - cache sizes.

What I want to do is to tune eCS for a Pentium like system with 266MHz and 64MB memory. This is a small board which boots eCS from a 16GB CF-Card and works reasonable well. I reduced HPFS cache, disabled CDROM support, remed out all DOS network drivers, disabled JFS... But eCenter still shows about >56MB used and 6MB swapper size after startup.

Any pointer to documentation about appreciated.

Basically what I need is - WPS, and network. Maybe I should deinstall Netbios as TCP/IP is probably enough for me. But does anyone know how much this will lower memory utilization?
