PCOMM 4.3 and ZOC 4.1.5

ZOC OS/2 developper

Interesting! I didn't know about ZOC, do you recommend over PCOMM?

Thank you Neil!

What is the last version of IBM's Personal Communications (aka PCOMM) software for OS/2?
Or alternatively do you recommend another 3270/5250 terminal emulator (on OS/2)?

Thank you for reading!

Do you know which package is needed to add the missing header files? This is the gcc from netlabs-rel (9.2.0-4.oc00)
Thank you!

What about fiber channel, is there any FC adapter known to work with OS/2?

Storage / Boot from iscsi or fiber channel
« on: February 12, 2024, 07:28:11 am »
I would like to have a diskless ArcaOS (or Warp 4, but preferably ArcaOS) machine. For that I would like to boot and run diskless from iSCSI or Fiber Channel or FCoE (Fiberchannel over Ethernet.)

Either way it will be booting from a Netapp filter.

It's just much more convenient for us, as it allows us to take filesystem snapshots, replicate storage remotely; and it gets automatically backed up; plus naturally, it's a very reliable SAN underneath with parity; and finally, it's more "aligned" with how we run things around here.

The initial OS installation can be done to Virtualbox (because I don't think you can readily install to FC or iSCSI), then the contents of the disk *could* be moved (more precisely dd if=virtualboxdisk.raw of=/dev/remoteblockdevice bs=512 or something like that) to the SAN block device, but I'm not certain how things would boot (ECSBOOT.COM?); naturally, I could use a Qlogic HBA with iSCSI boot support (sometimes they do that for windows or AIX) but I'm not sure if that was ever attempted for OS/2; although, because it's a fairly common way to do things in large organizations i would be surprised to hear that it was never done with OS/2.

GOALS: Note that I don't want to boot or run diskless os/2 from os/2 (or ecomstation or another operating system) or run os/2 "virtualized" here; the goal is to boot and run os/2 from a machine with no disk. So please refrain asking "why would you do this", "use a raid controller", "use reliable drives", etc. Finally, the GOAL is not to simply boot, but have the block device exposed over network or fiber channel; or basically run "diskless" via iscsi/FCoE or fiber channel.

Quick search on Google didn't show anything extremely useful (which hardware to use, which HBAs are supported etc) or how to accomplish this, so I'm turning to the community for ideas and pointers.

Thanks in advance -- J.

sshd -D starts after the host keys are created (not sure what's the different between the above and ssh-keygen -A); but I can't login via password or by adding my private key to authorized_keys in my homedir). I'm using openssh-server from bitwise/netlabs; the latest to date.

Thank you for the detach command.
No, I do not see a pwd.db in c:\etc or /etc

I think I got it to work with Alex's package, after installing the 4 WarpIN packages, I had to mkdir c:\etc\ssh and copy /etc/ssh/*.* c:\etc\ssh\ then it worked.
sshd needs to be run in a shell, there's probably a better way.
I haven't found out where the root/root and test/test credentials are stored though.

That works, thank you!

Applications / telnetd

I've activated telnetd on ArcaOS 5.0.2, it runs from telnetd, I've created a few users with klUsrMgr; but none of them can be authenticated ("login failed") do you know how to create users for telnetd to auth against?

"ssh localhost 22" shows:
ssh: connect to host locahost port 22: Connection refused

"c:\usr\sbin\sshd.exe" shows:
sshd re-exec requires execution with an absolute path

For reference, telnetd works fine

I'm testing using the client, trying to ssh to localhost.
I've also tried the WarpIn packages prior to posting this thread, with the same outcome.
Obviously I must be doing something wrong.

Applications / openssh-server on ArcaOS
« on: October 22, 2020, 01:56:42 am »
I've installed openssh-server on ArcaOS 5.0.2 (yum install openssh-server) but it doesn't appear that the port 22 is open, does anyone has further instructions on how to configure openssh-server, I've looked through other threads, but didn't find this info.

Note I also have openssh-client installed.

Dave, do you mean "yum install odin-exe-tools" ?
